    Coronavirus and Its Impact

    Washington Post interviewed the partner of the first woman to die in Indiana. https://www.washingtonpost.com/nation/2020/03/28/voices-from-the-pandemic-indiana-man-recounts-partners-death-from-coronavirus/?arc404 It's paywalled, but available through Internet Archive here: http://archive.is/tGWzM

    Coronavirus and Its Impact

    Yeah, that's not even remotely close to what is happening. Hospitals did see that occur initially, and that definitely had a negative impact on supplies. But this week, in NYC and other locations, hospitals are being overrun with critical patients - people that must be treated in the hospital. The capacity / resource from here out is not fear-driven, minor cases, it's the spike in severely symptomatic patients. Here's an example from Georgia, near Atlanta I think: https://thehill.com/homenews/state-watch/489374-atlanta-mayor-explains-decision-to-impose-stricter-restrictions-than

    Dakich under investigation

    I think the post you're responding to was sarcasm.

    Dakich under investigation

    This has nothing to do with being offended, or at least I've never been offended by him. It's that he's been obviously a trash-human. When public figures benefit from their position insulating the repercussions of their behavior, it's nice to see them finally have to deal with reality (just a bit at least).

    Coronavirus and Its Impact

    Influenza (A? B? can't recall) was very prevalent here in Indianapolis for two weeks or so in mid-January. Enough of the symptoms are similar that I could see mistaking that.

    2019-2020 Season Review

    If I recall (no research, too lazy) - conference rank wound up where we were protected to begin the season. I was confident we would "overachieve" and land somewhere around 6th to 8th. I think many others here felt the same. Question is then, was the preseason predicted rank accurate? Or was it incorrect, as we suspected, but just happened to be true because the B10 as a whole was substantially better than expectation? To put it another way, almost all B10 teams outplayed their predicted finish - which resulted in predicted rankings being accurate (and predicted win/loss not accurate).
  8. If anyone is attending, I highly recommend the new(ish) Taxman Brewing Co. Brewpub. It's a 5 minute walk, just South of Banker's Life (use East exit, onto Delaware). Great food and beer: https://www.taxmanbrewing.com/home-cityway/

    Watching OSU vs ILL, Dakich on the broadcast - not sure he's sober. Perhaps he's sick, sounds that way, but he's making far less sense than usual.

    Bracketology and Team Resumes

    Ohio State as a 5 seed seems high to me. What have they done to separate them so much from IU? Schedule seems near identical - both have similar class of wins/loses and an identical record.
  13. Maybe it's just the latest rumors coloring my view, but Justin Smith looked like he wanted nothing less than to be there during those player introductions.

    Negativity Thread

    Single biggest complaint I have actually originated with Crean but persists with Archie: losing close games due to confusion and poor execution when you have multiple unspent timeouts I just don't understand. If you're a coach, using a timeout is one of the few ways to directly influence the game. If you want to be a coach, coach. If you want to be a spectator, do so from somewhere not the bench.
