BR,  you are exactly correct.  The models from when social distancing were first figured in still estimated 240,000 Americans would die.  Now it's down to 60k which is a 400% overestimate.  I hope it will be lowered again soon perhaps somewhere @40-45K . But it's certainly better to be safe than sorry albeit without the panic and product hoarding.  I hope everyone here is safe and well.

GB, same problem here.  Actually had to use the dog clippers to relieve the excess hair on back and sides. Now if only I had something to thin the thickness on top but after the unevenness of my previous attempt at barbering, I probably should wait.  I imagine the late 60's and 70's hair look may be a common theme for a while, ya think??

Thanx Seattle . As I recall your family has had some trying times as well.  If I have confused you with another poster/Mod ; please blame on senility and/or sports deprivation ;>)

SS , Best of luck with the biological baby possibility.  My brother and wife after several IVF's (and thousands of dollars)  were blessed with my nephew who just got engaged this holiday season. I will include you and your better half in my prayers and that you will be blessed as well.  And thank you for your kinds words above.

The wife got some real GOOD news.  After nearly 12 years of chemo, the doctors finally ceased the sometimes monthly/quarterly treatments a while back.  Her white blood cell has rebounded sufficiently enough so her immune system is now almost back to normal.  That allows her to fight off infections easier...especially good news in these virus-ridden times.  Thank you God.

Cruiser ...with ALL you have already endured , this period of social distancing should pale in comparison.  You can do this this, we ALL can and WILL come out stronger for it.  Together with 11 Warriors as a way of communicating and keeping informed of everything Buckeye; we can make this work.  Stay strong and keep a smile on your face .  GO  Cruiser  and  GO Bucks !!

Am I concerned ...yes.  Do I believe the season is lost...no.  Certainly fewer people are likely to attend games (either by choice or as required by an university) and will opt to watch on TV.  I am slightly encouraged by the (supposed) reduced spread in other countries that were first exposed and hoping that trend  will continue here.  We are in uncharted territory and fear of the unknown seems to be the pervasive view.  On the positive side, Americans need to be aware that IF the unfortunate loss of life reaches @40K in this country from Covid 19 ; that would equal the annual  # of deaths from the flu the past decade per the CDC. Let's be safe, practice what the govt suggests for the next month or so and hope for a college and pro football season in the fall ; albeit with probable less attendance. Go Bucks !!

1966, don't let anyone or anything stop you from posting.  Heck, I may not agree with you on every comment but you certainly are allowed to have an opinion.  Go Bucks !!

I think it is only apropos to steal somebody's claim " Who has it better than US ?? ".  And I can just see ol' Jimbo eating his ever-present hat right about now.

Up...As one of those seniors with a wife that has medical issues , I  certainly appreciate your idea . Now with special senior hours at grocery stores , I can hopefully get all the necessities that are needed.  But your community outreach concept for us older folks deserves kudos.  Thank you.

Not much of a debate of the need of a PG since only one on the roster.  And as mentioned by several posters above the need of another Big is necessary with the likely departure of Wesson and xfer of Gaffney.  Certainly you don't expect Diallo to come in and fill Wesson's shoes.
