I expect nothing from Pitino because he is known slime. I would expect more from the institutions involved. I think this reflects negatively on Iona as a school and on the NCAA.
I would agree with your take. It's going to come down to whether the country gets adequate testing in place to enable better mapping and decision making. Worldwide we will see the southern hemisphere start to blow up with cases. Bolsanaro in Brazil is in complete denial and making the claim that Brazilians are naturally resistant to the virus, which is a recipe for complete disaster.
Saying that, I think people will be slow to cram into stadiums with people pressed arm to arm with all of this fresh in their mind.
Well, it looks like Henderson's train runs on time. One browser refresh and there it was. Boom!
I had reached the twitter post that said 7PM... , looked down and it was 7:00 pm. I'll consider that some sort of good omen for the good guys and refresh my 11W tab in a few minutes.
We seem to have had an inordinate amount of people leaving buckeye basketball these last few years. Given the small number of incoming players each year, the numbers are really over the top. I don't think I have ever seen anything near this level of churn in the roster.
I watched Coombs take out Rodan and King Ghidorah last night on HBO.
This is effectively putting ESPN out of business as every sport is going down at once. Nobody has a contingency plan for this. They are going to be televising an intra-office ping pong tournament by tomorrow.
Yep. I grew up going to UD games and this was a once in a lifetime team. The Flyers are so deep this year and are combined with an absolute star in Toppin, that it's really hard to see the stars come together like this again. I'm bummed. It's the right decision, but it is still really disappointing.
Finally, something to wipe with.
Just doing my part.
I'll be interested to see if the various arenas still employ some idiot to play excessively loud music/ filler-noise over the PA during the breaks in action. There is a monotonous cymbal beat that the NCAA and the NBA in general constantly plays these days.
This dovetails with their decision to ban competitive football on campus the last twenty years.
Some of the newer stores only stock the three shells these days. Check isle 5.
Exactly. No ventilation system is going to pull surface contamination off of the shared arm separating your seat from the stranger to you left at the game. How many infected people were pumping that mustard dispenser before you loaded up your hot-dog?
Mythbusters did a pretty good demonstration of the topic years ago. That ventilation system isn't doing shit because it is not an airborne virus (other than getting sneeze/cough sprayed if you are really close)
Cavs and Blue Jackets told DeWine their arenas have good ventilation systems that quickly switch out air ... governor tells people not to go to games, but not making it mandatory. "Our goal is to dramatically slow down the spread, thus saving lives."
Regardless of the mortality rate associated with the virus, the "good ventilation" statement is irresponsible horseshit. The CDC has stated time and again that this virus is easily transmittable between people in close proximity. That said, I would encourage all of the smug naysayers to avoid all advice and throw caution to the wind. Go swap snot with every stranger you can find. It'll all work out.
Pro sports are pricing themselves right out of business. I don't fault the carriers who are trying to put together a compelling channel lineup for a wide spectrum of paying customers. It all comes down to the price for the carrier and in turn to you. The last seven years have seen multiple cable and subscription carriers have disagreements/stand-offs over sports content because the cost of the programming is killing their margins. Sooner or later the customer just says "No Mas".
Yeah, that mid-range shot he has displayed these last few games has really been critical. I did not know that he had another year of eligibility, but I'm glad to hear that he does. He is just starting to find his groove on the team in time for tournament. If Wesson stays as a senior, this team is going to scary.
I have watched eight or nine of Steve Deace's videos over the last couple of years and I think he does a pretty good of evaluating the team while still trying to be optimistic. Consider the fact that he is first and foremost a fan and his team is going through the biggest downturn of fortunes in their history. He has been living the frustration of rivalry losses for two decades now (some of us remember the pain of the 90's) and yet he tries to maintain a balance between legitimate criticism and just being a fanboy who ignores reality.
It's not easy, but he does a pretty good job of it.
Andre really has represented himself well over his time at OSU. He came in without a lot of expectation and has put together a very solid career for the Buckeyes.
Day is already on the record as saying that Zach Evans is not an option to join the team in 2020 even if he were to come to OSU. He said he would want to see him take a year to get himself more mature and better able to handle college life.
They broke down and admitted they were a basketball school and now we have taken that from them as well. :).
Man, time moves so damn fast. I can't believe that Garrett is already in his last year. I remember when we had no answers at DT and now we have a deep list of deserving players who should get snaps.
Once again Marotti shows how he develops things. The bike he is sitting on was purchased as a scrawny Razor e-scooter.
"So, I notice your reporting has been pretty sloppy. How are you going to clean up the situation going into your next article"?
"Sloppy? In what way"?
"Oh you know, the way you come in unprepared for an interview and ask questions that do not apply to the person in the interview. Just general sloppiness that shows a lack of effort from you and your publication. Things like that".
