    College Bball Thread

    NCAA has released its COVID guidelines. They are pretty extensive. One question I have, the document states that teams should consider quarantining the entire team (or tier 1 individuals as they put it) for 14 days if someone tests positive. What is the point in daily rapid result testing if you have to shut it down with 1 positive test? If you have rapid results you know exactly who has it and who doesn't so why force everyone to shut it down? sometimes the logic of leaders just baffles me. Kinda like Kentucky high school basketball recommending they stop doing a jump ball this year but go ahead and play the rest of the game.... https://www.insidethehall.com/2020/09/25/ncaa-releases-health-and-safety-guidelines-for-college-basketball/

    College Football Thread

    Mountain West is now joining the BIG and Pac12 in deciding to play this fall. They will play an 8 game schedule starting October 24th like the BIG. https://www.espn.com/college-football/story/_/id/29965923/mountain-west-votes-play-8-game-schedule-starting-october The list of leagues not playing is getting shorter by the day. In terms of FBS, I believe only the MAC has still not decided to play this fall.

    Yeah the BIG has said no fans across the conference. Other conferences have left it up to each school.

    I am just happy that it seems like college basketball has a plan. I know it is probably a lot easier to do this kind of thing for basketball than it is for football, but it is good to see that the people in charge aren't just sitting around and are actually proactive about getting these games in.

    Early BIG Projections (2020-21)

    yeah I felt #5 for Purdue was interesting considering they lost a rim protector and their best defender on a team that finished 10th. I think they are a year away from getting back to the top half of the BIG. Rutgers on the other hand may have reached their ceiling last year, but I agree that it's still higher than Purdue's.

    https://www.three-man-weave.com/3mw/big-ten-basketball-preview-2021 Really good in-depth analysis of each BIG team heading into the season. The authors also project the BIG and have IU at #6 just behind Purdue.

    Maui Classic 2020

    Glad this tournament is still happening. Assuming IU will still get the three guaranteed games for MAUI and then another guaranteed game for ACC-BIG challenge. I am curious to see what other nonconference games get scheduled as it is recommended that each team try to play at least 4 nonconference games.

    IU Football Off-Season

    You’re good man. But yeah I had your concerns when I first read the 5% positive rate as well Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners mobile app

    here, straight from the BIG. https://bigten.org/news/2020/9/16/the-big-ten-conference-adopts-stringent-medical-protocols-football-season-to-resume-october-23-24-2020.aspx

    I believe the 5% is a rolling average for the week. Since the players are tested everyday it would have to be a positive rate of more than 5% for a whole 7 day average. That's quite a bit different than one day. Again this is how I have interpreted the protocol.

    IU Football Off-Season

    looks like the teams will get a 9th game with teams finishing 2-7 in their division getting a consolation game the date of the BIG championship. https://www.cbssports.com/college-football/news/why-the-sun-belts-three-big-12-shockers-are-the-tip-of-the-upset-iceberg-this-college-football-season/

    IU Football Off-Season

    As posted in another thread, BIG TEN FOOTBALL IS BACK!!! Starts October 23-24, and I would assume that would allow each team to play 8 games with December 19th held for the BIG championship. I predict 8-0 for the hoosiers :)

    KNOWINGLY is quite a high standard and a pretty big stretch. But whatever you say Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners mobile app
  14. This is kinda my opinion. If it provides for more sports during this sucky time I am okay with it. I get the argument that it takes away from the regular season, and I agree with it in a normal year. But for this year since it is so unpredictable how many games each team will play I feel like the regular season is kind of a wash anyway. Just use the regular season for seeding and conference titles.
  15. I mean depending on our seed you would theoretically know whether we would have made the normal field or not. So I don't think pressure would be off.
