Lol that only 2 years ago we had entire teams playing in games with guys puking their guts out at halftime, massive head colds, sinus infections, strep throat, and nobody gave a shit and it was actually seen as a badge of honor.

Now we have to go on pause and shut everything down because of the sniffles and asymptomatic cases.

If we treat covid like this we're fucked forever.
Agreed, but much like our guy JeffBPredict I agree this is going to reach a groundswell moment. He has had some rational thoughts on it today....

I'm not as optimistic the groundswell is coming soon or made up of the right people.

There's still a lot of cultural incentive to be overly cautious, if for no other reason to distinguish yourself from the bad guys.

The NFL will make changes to their testing rules, others will slowly follow.

Jeff was pretty vocal in his absolute misreading of data around the 20% for herd immunity. I appreciate good data analysis of sports, but he got way out over his skies. Hope he’s reeled that back in, we can be sensible and avoid stupidity.

It’s the players who will drive it across the leagues. They’re pissed they are vaccinated, asymptomatic, and still having to sit out.

The CDC doesn't currently reccomend testing asymptomatic vaccinated people anyway, so the fact that sports leagues comprised of healthy young people are more strict makes no sense anyway.

My understanding is they aren’t testing, at least initially, unless they are symptomatic.

There would seem to be some interesting NIL opportunities for Connor should he choose to embrace his GLU status.

I'm definitely rooting for him.
Falbos should give him a ring

College basketball is turning into a 2020 free for all with games being added or moved on the fly

They need to make an available team transfer portal for teams to toss their name in.

How did the Hawks lose at Purdue? They suck! And rebound about as 'well' as the Hawks did in that stretch of 3 straight losses.

But most important of all about this game? FUCK Wisconsin!!

Fuck, Fuck, Fuck! Wisconsin, but Purdue is a paper tiger.

Ranked #3 but not even in the Top 3 of B10 standings.

It is sort of funny to note that Iowa is #25 in KenPom with the #3 offense and #141 defense while Iowa State is pretty much their mirror opposite with the #131 offense and #7 defense.

One style is rewarded in college basketball while the other side gets labeled playing the game the way it’s suppose to be played. To quote Shawnee, being this bad on defense is a choice. Iowa committed 15 fouls last night.

Actual unaffiliated NBA draft guys starting to talk about Keegan as a Top 10 draft pick....

For all the people who thought Iowa had a soft schedule, will be nice to see Minnesota exposed.

Word is the Valley is adding Murray + UIC. Not sure how this impacts UT Arlington and Kansas City.


Belmont + Murray + UIC - Loyola is still a net gain.

I can't believe that Ohio State was an underdog in this game.
