Nevada coach Jay Norvell told ESPN's Adam Rittenberg his team is temporarily relocating to Stanford for three practices and a Saturday scrimmage because of poor air quality at the program's home venue due to the Dixie Fire in Northern California.

One pressing quarterback question for each of the 32 NFL teams entering the 2021 season

  One pressing quarterback question for each of the 32 NFL teams entering the 2021 season With less than a week left until the start of the NFL regular season, each team has some questions behind center that will need to be resolved.However, there are a good deal of unknowns, even for teams with some of the most proven quarterbacks.

"It's literally affected every day of our practice for the last week and a half," Norvell said to ESPN on Tuesday. "When [the air quality index is] over 150, we have to take 12 players off the field because they have asthma, and when it's 200, we can't do anything outside. We've only had about half of our practices outside, and even those were limited to the number of players who can be there. We just can't function anymore; we've got to make sure we get the remainder of our training camp where everybody participates in these full practices."

Unlike many programs, Nevada does not have its own indoor practice facility or access to any similar local venue. The team plans to hold walk-throughs, meetings and weight training at an off-campus hotel or other location and won't be using Stanford's locker room or shower facilities and, thus, won't be subject to Stanford's COVID-19 health and safety protocols.

Wildfires are passing the threshold from existential necessity to existential threat for ecosystems around the world. © (National Wildfire Coordinating Group/InciWeb) Even fire-adapted giant sequoias can't withstand California's megafires Thresholds such as this - where human activities can push historically stable plant communities past the point of no return - are common features of many ecosystems, but their exact locations are difficult to predict and, tragically, may become apparent only after they are crossed.
