Now, Bruce, Before I get into your annual freaks list, I want to get your senses to help people around the world of college football reacted when they saw the story Bruce involving all the positive tests with the Miami Marlins. You know it got a lot of people's attention. Now, some of the aides and the power fire we spoke to said, You know what? We expected some of this But I think the idea that Look, this is a sport in baseball, where there's Maur, social distancing in terms of its not like football. You have much smaller rosters and as a football coach, put it to me when he saw this story was like, Well, you know what? They're professionals were not so the optics aren't great. But hopefully that Major League baseball HQ and keep having a season and then I think right now, college football is Crying at best they can to make a run at having a season as well. But obviously this is one of the things that is on their radar to see how is our their sports going to make it work? It's not Annapolis apples comparison, but it's definitely something that got people's attention in there. Monitoring bruise. Feldman's joining us. I mean, not only are they trying to make the season work still yet call it football, but even summer trying to make it work on time. As you've written. For instance, In the case of Oklahoma and Kansas, they have decided to open up their season against Missouri State and Southern Illinois on August 29th. What was the thinking behind those moves? And does that still makes sense at this point? I think it gives them some added flexibility in terms of what could happen Ah, stretching out of season. It's one more week, so I think that's the thinking behind it. Now. Look, I've talked to some AIDS. And some some coaches who are looking at it going. You know what we feel like We have a little bit understanding a better understanding Now of how This virus. Is how we can manage it a little better our players now after being around the program, of course for a month. They probably take it more seriously now because they've seen some of the you know how it can spread not necessarily in the program. But certainly you know, a bunch of guys got together and played Madden or somebody went over to a pool party. And then all of a sudden that's how the cases piled up. So when you talk to people in a lot of college football, they're big concerns are what happens when the rest of the student body comes back and campuses get filled up, and those those students probably aren't going to take it seriously. As as maybe the people now around college football are. Will there be a surgeon that point starting in late August?.
