  1. HashtagWeHaveRegionalsBetterThanFtWayneSS I'm not saying it's true. And I'm not saying it isn't, but it sure did make me laugh.
  2. Yes. I should have made it clear. I'm simply pointing out the budget constraints that many schools are under. I'm not justifying what any one school does or doesn't do under those constraints. I don't like it anymore than anyone here. And, I would agree that these circumstances can provide cover for decisions that have nothing to do with a virus.
  3. Sure. Perhaps my post wasn't clear. I'm not making a political statement and certainly I'm not blaming athletes or students in general. I know you want your kids to wrestle, believe me I want my kid to wrestle. They've all worked incredibly hard. My post was an observation. Having worked at an institution I am keenly aware, having watched colleagues lose their jobs, that no one wants to go totally online and/or shut down programs. Most schools like mine are largely driven by tuition dollars. Shutting down would simply be a matter of public health. I will agree
  4. Yep. A lot can be covered under that umbrella. However, a large part of what happens to the schools/programs are in the hands of student athletes and the students in general. And, these are 18-20 year old kids that will do the things 18-20 year old kids do.
  5. I never thought I'd spend so much time watching the latest on vaccines and therapeutics. I just hope when they find one (or five) effective ones they have the logistics worked out better than the testing. RAPS COVID-19 vaccine tracker RAPS COVID-19 therapeutics tracker
  6. This, and the development and delivery of therapeutics, hopefully oral and inhaled to avoid and reduce hospital visits/stays.
  7. I can appreciate that. I had this one kid in my residence hall back several years ago.... Karma?
  8. I'm not really sure how I should respond to this, but I think I'll go wash my hands.
  9. I can't agree more. It's not the media. It's the UNKNOWN. The Chinese didn't shut down whole parts of their country because of media exaggeration. Don't trust the media go to the CDC, NIH, John Hopkins or State Health agency sites. Watch Congressional hearings. The flu infects at 1 to 1 this thing 'appears' to spread at 1 to 2. Cycle that out 10 times and you get 10 infections for the flu and 1K for Covid-19. And, the mortality of this thing 'appears' to be 10x that of the flu (A Facui before Congress yesterday). Italy went from 10 cases to 12,500 in two wee
  10. I would be interested in how they pulled off a $4.5 million build. That's quite a coup.
  11. Yep. They are definitely up and coming. Mills is a beast.
  12. And this is why it's difficult to just sit down and ignore them. I have seen groups harass people. A few years ago I had a guy physically block me from entering a nearly completely open section. We had words, but rather than escalating the situation, with kids present, I choose to keep looking. For the next few years I decided to get there first (at 6:00A). And, guess what, it was still difficult getting a good seats. As I said previously, I have no problem with folks saving a few seats, but whole sections??? This is not the way you want to your premier event run.
