Last spring's swine flu scare in Texas may have made some people skeptical about projections of a major outbreak.
Still, swine flu has not gone away, and already several football programs have been impacted, including (possibly) TCU.
A spokeswoman for the CDC tells the New York Times that a locker-room environment represents "an ideal situation for the flu." Now imagine situations where schedules could be disrupted or star players sidelined. Not to be alarmist - and we remember the predictions that failed to materialize a few months ago -- but the spread of swine flu bears watching.
