This dang Covid guys & Gals. Just different strain after different strain. I hope we don’t go through this crap again effecting the Season. - -Well I mean it already is to a point. I read where up to now there has been 20 men’s Basketball games either postponed or Cancelled & 36 Womens . Like they said it’s just going to continue to grow.
I know it’s effected Ohio St , Seton Hall now , Syracuse , Cleveland State , I can’t think of the other one Big College that has multiple problems - -I don’t want to see another repeat. - - I hate it.
I’m hoping like this article says we the team being vaccinated and then boosters it won’t hit us - -But kind of worried it’s really hard to protect these guys 24/7. Hard to Police the guys and control where they go & what they do exp ( going out with friends on weekends or any other night as far as that goes - -coming in contact with countless others that may have been exposed - - just keeping fingers crossed. -Just seems like this is growing worse day by day AGAIN. - - -ROCK CHALK ALL DAY LONG BABY

As long as there’s a significant population of unvaccinated petrie dishes out there within which the virus can mutate, we’ll be in this pickle.
This country invented the vaccines and has unprecedented access to the vaccine. Yet, we are currently #19 in the world after steadily falling from #2 in the world on May 23.

I realize even if the US was 100% vaccinated, if the rest of the world was not vaccinated, the mutations would continue… but still, we’re not exactly leading by behavior.
