It's so nice to see some old names drop by again.

Not hard in Class A/Private this year. The classification was cut to like 39 teams in the latest reclassification, then they moved the playoffs back UP to 32 teams, (4 from each of 8 regions), and THEN they removed the previous rule that required power rated wildcard qualifications for the #4 seed in any region that contained only 4 teams.

Those regions by membership? 6, 3(one opted out), 4, 4,5,5,5, and 5.

Class A/Private playoff teams include an 0-10, 1-6, and a 1-9. Only one team staying home managed to finish 4-6, most were also winless/1-win.

The other one, Banks County? Final representative from a 4-team region (the 5th, Riverside Military, opted out of the season back in March 2020).

Their only lifetime playoff victory in 63 seasons of football? Ironically enough it was via the only previous forfeit in state playoff history, back in 2017 when KIPP Charter barred themselves for disciplinary reasons.

School board confirm voted this week to go back to cohorts on the 30th. I'd love to remove every single person who did.

HEY! Schools need to open to keep the economy going.

Who should get vaccines first? Not teachers.

I'm not going to argue that health care workers and nursing home patients get first dibs. But teachers should definitely get it before the regular population.

I'm 100% in on teachers being high up on the list for the vaccine.

We lost 43 kids today. One girl tested positive and the dominoes fell. I lost 16 out of one class. But I was not exposed (wink, wink)

I guess being an essential worker gives me some grace.

When we stopped in person school I had 133 kids in quarantine and 14 teachers.

This was about out of 900 in person kids and 73 certified staff.

We went two days a week for about a month, then the super moved us to four days a week with all kids who chose in person. That lasted 3 days.

Well we have had 85 or so kids quarantined out of our 6th grade. 3 positive tests did the damage. We have about 200 6th graders.

Thanksgiving was a bad thing this year.

Stray anecdote, one I'll have to paraphrase cause that's the best I can do

Will got an email from the university, basically stated that not a single confirmed case in the university had been connected to in-class contact. Every case for a student or faculty member they could trace came from an off-campus source.

I don't assign any meaning to that, I just thought it was an interesting thing.

I'm a bit skeptical of it but, I mean, I guess it's possible. I also think the university has a vested interest in finding anywhere else students could have possibly caught COVID, just as airlines would want to be able to blame somewhere else, just as restaurants would want to be able to find somewhere else, etc. Unless they're doing virus DNA "fingerprinting" (which they're not), there's no way to say that conclusively.

SI
