Didn't matter. Too little from our defense. Jones flung it around with EASE! Too many mistakes by Bennett. We should've run the ball more. We threw it too much on 1st/2nd down once we got inside AL's redzone. (See the 1st drive after the int. and the drive after AL made 27-24.) Question that MUST be asked: Were we ever going to win a game like this with Bennett as the QB? If not, where else do we turn?
Bennett just missed another throw. A possible TD right before the 4th qtr. That's happening too much to win a game like this. Jones isn't missing them (or getting balls batted), and again, he's FAR too comfortable in the pocket. The difference in this game has been the QB play. We need more from Bennett and our defense or it's going to be the same-old same-old.
Very disappointed in our defense. I expected more from them that what I've seen in the first 3 qtrs. Jones is WAY too comfortable. He's throwing FAR too often with NO pressure.
AGAIN: But is ANYONE really sick?! I seriously doubt it or it would be plastered ALL OVER the media.
AGAIN, let me guess, ANOTHER positive test with ZERO symptoms! I'll wager not one single FL player is sick as well! STOP pretending that a positive test means much of anything! (See Nick Saban!) "CASES" (if these tests can even be trusted) without context mean little to NOTHING! These players/coaches are in less danger from the Wuhan virus than they are from the flu! STOP THE FEAR PORN and GET BACK ON THE FIELD!!!
EXACTLY! I said the same on a different post here.
Sounds like Nikki Fried needs to educate herself on the science and the data. The data are clear: the Wuhan virus is less dangerous to college-age students/athletes than the flu. Protect the vulnerable, and let everyone else get back to their lives! STOP with the fear porn, and let's get back to church, work, school, and play!
Let’s call it what it is: In every way, Nick Saban’s positive COVID test is a massive blow for college football
Sooooo, ANOTHER "case" where no one is sick. Haven't you media folks seen enough "positive tests" to know what is the real situation here?! A "positive test" means almost nothing unless the person is really sick. Heck, given the unreliability of the tests, he may not even have actually tested positive (ask GA state and the NFL)!
AGAIN: "Cases" without context--which, notice AGAIN that is ALL that gets reported--means little to NOTHING! How many are sick? How many are even showing symptoms?! Probably none. What's more, a positive test may not even mean that there is a real case. (Ask GA State!) The media is hyping this because of Mullen's statements about "filling the Swamp." I wouldn't be a bit surprised to find out that the numbers were faked simply to get at Mullen.
Links automatically get moderated by SDS (in my experience). However, it's easy enough to find out for yourself.
Actually, to stop testing everyone was the recommendation of the CDC just a few weeks ago. And there's actual data to back up EVERYTHING I've said on this matter. Of course schools have an obligation to protect students, but--again, as the data has clearly shown--students are in less danger from the Wuhan virus than they are from the flu. An NONE of these measures have EVER been taken for the flu!
In fact, I wouldn't be surprised if this is the result of some fool on the FL medical staff who is a shutdown apologist and wanting to teach Mullen a "lesson."
Ummmm, is anybody actually SICK?! Then: SO WHAT?!!! A positive test may not even = a "case." And even if it is a "case," the extremely fit athletes that play college football ARE IN ZERO DANGER!!! GA State cancelled a game a couple of weeks ago because of positive tests, and they later found out (too late) that the tests were WRONG!!! STOP THE PANIC PORN and PLAY FOOTBALL!!! (Oh, and by the way, let this be a lesson: STOP TESTING EVERYONE!)
Did the car have Alabama plates?!
More asinine decision making based on "positive cases." Cases without context is little more than pure politics. How many are symptomatic? (Probably none.) How many are actually sick? (Almost certainly none.) STOP MAKING POLICY MERELY BASED ON "CASE COUNTS!!!"
"wears masks" that is...
Speaking of "stupid," cases without context--which is all those pushing the panic porn seem to report--are meaningless. How many are actually sick? How many require hospitalization? How many are simply the result of increased testing? Look all around college football stadiums, college campuses, high school campuses, restaurants, parks (including those hosting my sons' fall little league games), and so on: If masks are worn, they are almost ALWAYS worn in a manner that violates CDC guidelines (see my post below). Social distancing is largely ignored, and yet the virus is NOT raging! STOP with your ignorant panic porn!
Like so many other executives making decisions that effect so many others, Fuchs is ignoring science and the data. AGAIN: Outside of an operating room virtually NO ONE wears them according to proper medical standards. They constantly pull them up and down with their hands all over them, or wear them with their noses hanging out, etc. Every time hands touch the masks, whatever germs are present are now on the wearers hands. It’s virtually the equivalent of blowing ones nose into ones open hands. Thus, less germs would be spread if we weren’t wearing masks. What’s more, the data is clear: masks are doing little to nothing to “slow the spread” of the Wuhan virus AND the VAST majority of us are in ZERO danger from the Wuhan virus! What's more, the "spread" has already been slowed to a manageable rate. Hospitals were NEVER overwhelmed, and continue to have the means to care for the Wuhan virus patients who might need them. END THE MASK IDIOCY! END THE SHUTDOWNS!
And that's all you've got? Name-calling? In other words, you're on the wrong side of the truth, and you don't know what else to do. Repent!
The "guidelines" are foolish and useless if not rooted in science and data. And there's NOTHING in the science or the data that says football stadiums can't be filled with mask-less fans. Ignore case counts, because without proper context (how many are actually sick)--which the media NEVER reports--case counts are near-meaningless. Take off the STUPID masks! Outside of an operating room virtually NO ONE wears them according to proper medical standards. They constantly pull them up and down with their hands all over them, or wear them with their noses hanging out, etc. Every time hands touch the masks, whatever germs are present are now on the wearers hands. It’s virtually the equivalent of blowing ones nose into ones open hands. Thus, less germs would be spread if we weren’t wearing masks. What’s more, the data is clear: masks are doing little to nothing to “slow the spread” of the Wuhan virus AND the VAST majority of us are in ZERO danger from the Wuhan virus! END THE MASK IDIOCY! END THE SHUTDOWNS!
I'm certainly a Gator-Hater, but in the name of truth, science, and plain common sense, I hope Mullen gets exactly what he wants in this. And why not heed the science and medical experts behind "The Great Barrington Declaration" (web search it). It reads: "As infectious disease epidemiologists and public health scientists we have grave concerns about the damaging physical and mental health impacts of the prevailing COVID-19 policies, and recommend an approach we call Focused Protection... "Fortunately, our understanding of the virus is growing. We know that vulnerability to death from COVID-19 is more than a thousand-fold higher in the old and infirm than the young. Indeed, for children, COVID-19 is less dangerous than many other harms, including influenza. "As immunity builds in the population, the risk of infection to all – including the vulnerable – falls. We know that all populations will eventually reach herd immunity – i.e. the point at which the rate of new infections is stable – and that this can be assisted by (but is not dependent upon) a vaccine. Our goal should therefore be to minimize mortality and social harm until we reach herd immunity. "The most compassionate approach that balances the risks and benefits of reaching herd immunity, is to allow those who are at minimal risk of death to live their lives normally to build up immunity to the virus through natural infection, while better protecting those who are at highest risk. We call this Focused Protection... "Those who are not vulnerable should immediately be allowed to resume life as normal. Simple hygiene measures, such as hand washing and staying home when sick should be practiced by everyone to reduce the herd immunity threshold. Schools and universities should be open for in-person teaching. Extracurricular activities, such as sports, should be resumed. Young low-risk adults should work normally, rather than from home. Restaurants and other businesses should open. Arts, music, sport and other cultural activities should resume..."
They all look like fools in their science-denying masks! Virtually NO ONE (outside of an operating room) wears them according to proper medical standards. They constantly pull them up and down with their hands all over them, or wear them with their noses hanging out, etc. Every time hands touch the masks, whatever germs are present are now on the wearers hands. It's virtually the equivalent of blowing ones nose into ones open hands. Thus, less germs would be spread if we weren't wearing masks. What's more, the data is clear: masks are doing little to nothing to "slow the spread" of the Wuhan virus AND the VAST majority of us are in ZERO danger from the Wuhan virus! END THE MASK IDIOCY!
End of the 1st qtr., and AL and Ole Miss are tied, with Ole Miss driving. I certainly don't want to play AL at their place following a loss. Roll Tide! (At least for tonight!)
UGA defense was stunningly good--again (UT had -1 yards rushing FOR THE GAME!). We should be in every game because of them. Too much inconsistency on offense. We need more out of Zeus that what we saw today. He didn't seem to run with the same authority as last week.
Who said anything about doing "what politicians say? I know the science of this very well, and there is a WIDE variety of opinions on our reaction to the Wuhan virus from "medical experts." Why not heed the advice of the "medical experts" behind the "Great Barrington Declaration?" (Web search it.) Like thousands of other "medical experts" and scientists, I've signed it. And who's to say that your foolish opinions in this matter aren't because you've made it all about you and your desire to see Trump kicked out of office? And tell us, how long must we continue with this shutdown nonsense and mask idiocy? What exactly are you waiting on to get your life back?!
Again, DeSantis is exactly right on this. The data are clear: The VAST majority of us are in little to no danger from the Wuhan virus. It's LONG past time to end any and all shutdowns and get Americans back to church, work, school, and play! And for all the mask apologists out there: What’s the endgame? When do the mask mandates go away? What are we waiting on? Why will taking them off in December or January (or February or March) be safer than now? There likely won’t be a vaccine then, thus those who don’t get the virus now will get it then (if they’re going to get it at all). For the few who require it, the hospitals then will be as capable of proper treatment as they are now, and health outcomes of those who contract the Wuhan virus will likely be exactly what they are now. In other words, for the overwhelming majority of us, masks and social distancing aren’t necessary. Again, the science and the data are clear: the curve has been flattened and the spread has slowed to a manageable rate. End this wicked politicization of the Wuhan virus!
Just like it's not okay to be a "pandemic denier," it's not okay to be a data denier. Both are anti-science/truth. Look at the data! College-age students are in virtually NO danger from the Wuhan virus! Stop pretending like they are! (And making policy based on such fear-mongering!)
Should read: "yes, according to some health care experts, it is likely that masks do slow the spread of the Wuhan virus."--Of course, the data now make clear that masks are doing little to nothing to help "slow the spread." (They're about as effective as a pocket handkerchief.)
So actual data and quoting from the CDC is part of a "false narrative?" So how did you reach your conclusions on this matter? The virus did "spread rapidly" in certain parts of the country, and guess what, hospitals were NEVER overwhelmed! Of course, that's because for the VAST majority of us, this virus is no more (and in many cases less) dangerous than the flu! Of course it's not gone, and it likely will never be completely gone. But so what? We'll live with it like we do many other similar diseases. And the actual data also make clear that mask wearing has done nothing to slow the spread of this virus. Many parts of the world--including much of the U.S. (see Hawaii for example)--with VERY strict mask mandates, have seen the largest spikes in cases. It seems that, because "Orange Man Bad," you're the one who's brainwashed.
EXCELLENT DECISION! The mask mandates are little more than PC GARBAGE! Let me make this abundantly clear to all of the mask apologists out there: masks are NOT going to halt the spread of the Wuhan virus. Even the CDC webpage devoted to promoting the mask mandate agenda declares that masks should be worn in order to “Help Slow the Spread of COVID-19.” This is stated just below the title of the page! The second bullet point in the list below the title says that “Masks may help prevent people who have COVID-19 from spreading the virus to others.” Let me also make this clear: yes, it is likely that masks do slow the spread of the Wuhan virus. If you can recall what we heard almost daily in the spring of this year, “slow the spread” was synonymous with “flatten the curve.” However one puts it, we've ALREADY accomplished this! (At least to the point that we needed to--hospitals not overwhelmed, etc.) And please don't respond to this with "case counts." The number of Wuhan virus cases is near-meaningless without context--how many are actually sick, how many require hospitalization, and so on. Again, all of these important numbers are well within our ability to deal with it. And, of course, young people--especially healthy college-age students--are in virtually NO danger from this virus! The data make this clear. Out of nearly 70,000 reported Wuhan virus cases at 50 U.S. colleges and universities (many listed are in the SEC) there have been 3 (THREE!!!) hospitalizations and ZERO deaths! ENOUGH with the Wuhan virus fear porn! Get rid of the masks, fill the stadiums, bring back tailgating, tell those vulnerable to remain at home or assume the risks, and get college football (and the rest of America) back to normal!
