The biggest problem is how to treat positive tests. Say it's Wednesday before OSU Michigan and a couple OSU players test positive. Cancel the game?

OSU talking about having 20K in the stands.
That is a little under 20% so basically every 5th seat.  In theory that would be plenty to keep 6' between each family/household group but how on earth would it be enforced and how on earth would the family/household groups get to their seats while maintaining social distance?  It will take some time to figure all of this out.

You actually think Buckeye Fans can maintain 6' rules after Keggs and Eggs/Tailgating.You'd have better results herding cats

Within rows, it's easy.  But in front and behind?  Nuh uh.

I love Ohio State always one big step ahead of the rest of the conference. First having players report June 8 and now modeling attendance figures:

Checkerboard seating should be the plan.  I guess three seat separation is about 6 feet?  How many rows have to be skipped?  One or two?

Even if you only use every fourth seat in the row, you still have to measure front-to-back. At places like the New Brickhouse, that's every 4th row. Kinnick and Camp Randall will be more like 5 rows. So instead of 1 in 4 seats filled, it's more like 1 in 16 or worse.

Whatever happened at Liberty after they brought the students back? Things have gotten really quiet over there.

I presume many attendees are not single persons, so they could be grouped by group.  The student population, well there I don't know as they would be grouped closely together at school frequently.

I think I should wait, my guesses likely will be wrong anyway.  As noted, by August, "things" may be rather different.

I recall in late March going to Kroger and the place was almost stripped by panic buying.  I had been there two days before and things were "OK".  I started worrying about the food distribution system just failing, it didn't obviously.

If I could have been promised the situation of TODAY on March 25th, I would have taken it in a second.  We're better off now than I expected.

They're all dead?

No, not really.  I'm assuming nothing much happened, otherwise it would have been reported on endlessly by the media.  No catastrophe = no coverage.

Anyway, for seating and social distancing, there are a lot of complexities that would need to be worked out.  My family of 4 shouldn't have to be separated, we're living together and breathing one another's air every day.  College roommates wouldn't need to be separated for the same reason.  College boyfriend/girlfriend, same story. Or boyfriend/boyfriend or girlfriend/girlfriend, whatever floats you boat.

But how to manage dynamic seat assignment with varying degrees of closeness per group?  That's tricky.

The first of three reports on new cases is 356, two more reports to go.  Each report can be quite different from the previous one.

But 356 isn't an encouraging figure.

It is a logistical nightmare to even lay out the seating but it *COULD* be done.  Someone a LOT better at programming than me could come up with a program to take groups of 1-10 (since 10 is the max, I think) and then seat them such that each group is at least 6' from every other group.  That is doable.  

The harder part, I think is several things after that:
  • Getting those groups into their 6' separated areas while maintaining social distance, and
  • Getting them to the restroom and back while maintaining social distance, and
  • (if necessary) enforcing this whole thing.  How on earth would security/event staff know who was in what group.  The problem here isn't just random drunks crashing into other groups's space it is also that with TONS of empty seats there would be pressure to "upgrade" your seat by moving to a better one that is empty.

At least there appear to be plans to hold the games, however spectators are managed.

I think the next month will be pivotal.
