Column: College football sending out incorrect messages vs COVID-19

C’mon, college football, you’ve got to do much better.

Coaches should set an example by using their masks. Fans shouldn’t be cheering from their seats or robbing for the electronic cameras without face coverings. Schools should mandate security look for anybody going into the arena.

That’s the only method they’re going to get through this most rare of seasons – rather securely, a minimum of – in the middle of an unattended pandemic that has actually currently declared more than 200,000 American lives.

The most significant video game of this previous weekend produced all sorts of troubling images. Georgia, the third-ranked group in the nation, needs fans to use masks when they go into Sanford Arena and while they’re on the concourses, however they can take them off at their socially distanced seats.

So, naturally, barely anybody was using a mask while viewing a 27-6 triumph over Auburn in the very first leading 10 match of the season.

Sure, Georgia was following Southeastern Conference standards, and school authorities firmly insisted that they kept a safe environment for an outside occasion, however the message was not a great one.

Specifically when Bulldogs coach Kirby Smart appeared to invest the majority of the night with his mask hanging below his nose or down around his neck.

Smart acknowledged that he needs to do a much better task with this many standard – and perhaps, crucial – of security procedures, a basic action that 10s of countless Americans are following every day in spite of the hassle.

“Absolutely,” Smart yielded. “I’ve been talked to by the commissioner and several others.”

He held up a mask to drive house his mea culpa.

“I just have to figure out a way to get it tighter and more comfortable on there,” he stated. “The biggest thing is when you’re in the middle of coaching and talking to somebody, you have to get comfortable being able to leave it up and leave it on. And that’s probably the toughest thing.”

Then there’s LSU, the ruling nationwide champ and another SEC powerhouse.

We’ve currently heard coach Ed Orgeron delicately drop that the majority of his group currently contracted the coronavirus, as though it was absolutely nothing more than the cold.

On Monday, the Tigers doubled down by revealing they’ll stop doing CDC-sanctioned health checks at arena gates. Rather, they motivated fans to do a self-assessment of their health prior to they leave your home.

LSU authorities state they wish to minimize the long lines to get in Tiger Arena. For great step, they likewise raised a restriction on alcohol sales, producing an even higher possibility of reckless conduct from those in the stands.

Take A Look At it by doing this: Considering that the fans won’t need to wait as long to get in, they’ll be much more time for drinking.

Seriously, it’s baffling that anybody in a position of authority contemplated the alternatives and believed this was the method to go – particularly in a state that has among the country’s greatest COVID-19 death rates, approximately 1 in every 850 locals.

To its credit, the NFL has actually buckled down about its security procedures in the wake of video games being delayed since of favorable tests.

Commissioner Roger Goodell sent a memo cautioning the league’s 32 groups of charges consisting of possible forfeits of video games for any infractions that require modifications in the schedule.

The league currently administered substantial fines to 3 coaches – Denver’s Vic Fangio, San Francisco’s Kyle Shanahan and Seattle’s Pete Carroll – who thumbed their exposed noses at the league’s mask required. They were struck with $100,000 fines, while their groups got docked $250,000.

The SEC and other conferences need to think about comparable steps for coaches who don’t use their masks, however don’t hold your breath.

We connected to the league Tuesday and all we got was “there’s always room for improvement” prior to being indicated a short article in which Georgia authorities stated they were mostly happy with their precaution for Saturday night’s video game.

Georgia and LSU are barely the only schools worthwhile of analysis.

In a season-opening upset of the protecting nationwide champs, brand-new Mississippi State coach Mike Leach was captured often times with his face exposed. He blatantly breached league guidelines, and after that called into question whether masks were required at all.

“I try to do my best with it, but once you’re 6 feet apart, I can’t help but wonder if some of this isn’t an homage to politicians,” Leach stated, doing his finest to send out the most reckless message to his gamers.

Luckily, there are coaches like Duke’s David Cutcliffe, who comprehend the gravity of the circumstance.

“I’m first a believer that it’s important to other people that you wear a mask — more important to other people than it is to you,” he stated. “I promised our players and I promised our parents that the No. 1 priority that we would have would be the health and well-being of those young men.”

Obviously, it was constantly gong to be hard to keep a safe environment in a high-contact sport played in close quarters.

We’ve currently seen favorable tests, and we will definitely see much more prior to the season is done.

However the objective needs to be to make it through this without anybody suffering long-lasting health issue or, paradise forbid, passing away.

“If our players are disciplined enough to do all that they’re doing to stay playing football, why would we not do the same?” Cutcliffe stated. “It’s not easy to talk and call plays on the sidelines, a constant thing that’s in your mind. But you know what? Personal discipline is the best way we’re going to face anything in life and handle tragic circumstances or tough circumstances. So we’re just going to go with it.”

C’mon, college football, you can do much better.
