    IU Football Off-Season

    Interesting. I presume the non conference games that aren’t played won’t be replaced with more conference games. Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners mobile app

    Coronavirus and Its Impact

    While you never want to see a spike in cases, it is better to have those now before we get into the flu season again right? Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners

    Positive news regarding coronavirus thread

    Glad your son found a path to play. My daughter also started to play later than most of the girls but loves to train and practice. So far she has not enjoyed tournaments and has not done anything to build a NTSA ranking. She plays soccer at a pretty high level currently and that could limit time to play HS tennis but perhaps if she wants to play in college she might be able to fit NTSA tournaments in easier. Thanks for the info. Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners mobile app

    Coronavirus and Its Impact

    The thing that irks so many is that when Trump talks about something the media does not discuss pros and cons they vilify. So this study comes out as “proof” it is bad and now despite being discredited MSNBC and CNN will continue to act as if true and will snidely throw comments in about how science proved him wrong.

    How does the tennis recruiting work? One of my kids has been really progressing and while she is not getting college looks yet she might if she continues. Lost her freshman year so hard to tell where she is in comparison. I am familiar with HS soccer recruitment and the college ID camps but have not seen much yet for tennis Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners mobile app

    IUFB -- RIP Chris Beaty (1981-2020)

    Ridiculous. Cannot understand how you can think looting and the associated violence is worth the loss of a life like this. Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners

    Coronavirus and Its Impact

    No denying it whatsoever. Brother n law was ground zero in NOLA, sister n law Covid pos that she caught at her hospital. Another family member exposed last week delivering a baby. Where did I ever say I was denying it. I am objective or try to be. My opinions thorough out this change as we learn more. So many are so locked in that facts won’t matter. I am curious as to how big the number of deaths yoy is and whenever you look at yoy comparisons I prefer to include multiple years. Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners mobile app

    Coronavirus and Its Impact

    I read a something similar but the authors of that article was comparing 2020 to several years. They advised to wait until we have several months of data and are through winter. I think we will definitely see an increase yoy but I think this info will be interesting and will help show just how much of an impact Covid has had. Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners mobile app

    Coronavirus and Its Impact

    I still think the cases overall are overstated but it is just my opinion and I admit I could be wrong. Colorado updated their numbers recently and they did decrease the number of deaths as a result of Covid. https://amp.coloradoan.com/amp/5198485002 I don’t think we will know much about over or under count though until about July when we have had a chance to compare year on year total deaths for Jan-Jun of 2020 to other years.
