Depends on the platform, workforce, and most importantly, the reagent allocation. 
 

Abbott ID now has an ~8 minute positive, 15 min negative time. 

Cepheid- About the same as above

RT PCR (many vendors)- about an hour to extract, an hour to plate, 4 hours to cycle. Hour to validate.  

BD Max- 3-4 hours 

Those are all the ones I’ve seen. Then there’s the antibody tests which I won’t get into. 
 

Issues, as I mentioned, are reagent allocations and backlog of samples. 
 

If they want to get the tests done quickly, they need to do 2 things. #1 sequester enough reagents to last all year or at least have a reliable supply. #2 Create their own testing facility or pay a private lab tons of money to put them STAT priority every time. 

Do you think it is realistic to test every P5 athlete and coach quickly enough to have sports? Not asking rhetorically. I say athlete because I just don’t see colleges being able to get away with canceling all sports but football, and if all sports are played I don’t see them getting away with anything but equal safety/testing protocols for all sports. It just seems unlikely it can be pulled off due to the sheer number of people we are talking about.

It’s definitely possible. But it’s going to require a ton of money and planning. Not everyone is going to be able to do it....not G5. 
 

Not to mention there might be some ethical issues. Putting athletes and coaches ahead of sick patients so that you can toss a ball around....the optics on that? Not great.

Well it took one weekend for a COVID breakout with The Marlins.

 

 I really have a hard time seeing sports without a bubble happening in this country

BULLSHIT!! Joe Kelly gets suspended 8 games for throwing over a batters head, but the entire Astros team gets zero suspensions in one of the worst cheating scandals in modern sports history.

MLB is partly responsible for this scandal. No Astros players were punished and their title wasn’t vacated. Honestly, fck whoever is making the decisions. Bitches, all of them.

Rob Manfred is the worst commissioner in the history of sports.

Go Giants. 

We’d talk about the Giants, but they’re irrelevant and no one knows anyone on that team.

I may be a Dodger fan, but I would be rooting for a Giants pitcher or any pitcher that threw some chin music at Springer, Altuve, or any other Astro player that was part of that team. The MLB brought this on themselves and opened the floodgates to vigilante justice. Joe Kelly won't be the last pitcher to do this.
