There is no way that BYU couldn't safely accommodate the families of the players in a stadium that seats 60K+. State of Utah is being ridiculous.

There's careful and then there's stupid.

K, I'm going to rant a little here about this covid-19 thing. Frankly all of it is extremely stupid and has gotten out of hand. There is no doubt that people are getting sick and there are people dying from it (mainly people over 73). Having said that, Utah county is under a mandatory mask edict from the governer. If Masks really work, why do we have to play in empty stadiums? If social distancing really works, why are we playing in empty stadiums, outdoors I might add? You can't tell me that they couldn't put 6000 people in a 65000 person stadium, masks or no masks and not spread the virus. This entire thing is so political, so stupid, and it is pissing me off.

I get really tired of these types of ignorant arguments. Like REALLY tired. The "If X works, why Y?" stuff just exposes either real or pretended ignorance.

Maybe nothing works perfectly to STOP spread, but there are a number of things that help SLOW the spread that, when combined, work even better to SLOW it?

Nothing ELIMINATES risk, but there are quite a few things we can do to REDUCE risk.

Exactly, so I guess it is the governments job to tell people what they can and can't do. Your statement actually confirms my entire point. If masks help, why not let people wear their masks and go watch football. There is a 99+% chance that people will recover from this virus, which was recently proven when our 74 year old president recovered from it in 2 days.

It is amazing that the insistence of those who feel to be concerned for others health don't feel as though they need to do this for the common flu. It is, statistically, MORE lethal than COVID-19 after all. Another observation--were the COVID pandemic, so declared, to have occurred in 1980 at the height of the "ME" generation's activity, there is no way a government would have been able to enforce all these "mask" rules. They simply wouldn't have even tried. Such a different world today!

Meanwhile, I'm glad UTSA was an opportunity for learning that didn't come in the form of a loss.

I am so happy that BYU won this game even playing poorly. I am not nearly as confident in a victory over Houston now though. I hope we see the team that showed up against Navy and not the one that showed up today.
