    College Bball Thread

    "I haven't educated myself well enough on Adolph Rupp or just the whole situation at hand to really give you my thoughts on it. From what I do know, I would like to see a name change" Had to do a double take because this sounds like something Lebron James would say. Those 2 sentences sum up everything that is wrong with the outrage culture today. Just go with your feelings. Facts and context never matter, just jump to your own conclusions before the whole story comes out. Don't wait for evidence, your feelings are hurt so go crucify somebody for it. The more time goes by, I'm so glad we never got Brooks.

    That piece of underwear you wear on your face ain't doing sh1t to keep others or yourself from getting infected. But if it's what it takes to avoid another round of shutdowns then so be it.

    And apparently now there are questions as to whether or not a vote to cancel the fall football season was even held. I'd link Nicole Auerbach's twitter if I knew how, but evidently there are a few ADs/college presidents who don't know if a vote even took place. Adding that to the non-answers from Warren, and things are starting to look rather peculiar.

    It's just bad optics all around. A week after the B1G releases their conference-only schedule for the fall, the season gets cancelled. Say what you want, but that is the result of poor leadership. I have little to no hope this season will be played in the spring. It will look even worse on the conference if the Big 12, ACC, and SEC play in the fall. It will be hard enough for schools like Ohio State to recruit the south after all this if the SEC plays and B1G doesn't, so I can't imagine how hard it will be for schools like IU.

    Kevin Warren is an idiot. He's just kicking the can at this point. His incompetence is going to cause the conference he oversees to be even less relevant on a national scale as recruits spurn B1G schools in favor of those who will play. My biggest frustration amidst all of this is that I don't see how you can pretend to care about the physical health of athletes amidst a pandemic, but continue to rake in millions if not billions by turning a blind eye to CTE.

    Apparently he gave the vaccine to one of his daughters. If that's the case, my guess is that she will be the one who has balls pretty soon due to God knows what else is in that vaccine.

    How come, did someone test positive on the team? Oh, and Go Cavemen!

    Viruses can also be studied in labs in Wuhan, jump to a human host, who then goes to a wet market and spreads it to other people. Then the Communist government knows about this, does nothing, and lies to the World Health Organization and leaders all around the world about its lethality and ability to jump from human to human. Then they could silence and disappear doctors who had the audacity to try and tell the world about the virus' severity. They can also completely cover up the official body count by reporting only 3,000 deaths when it's likely several times that. Screw all this sensitive "I don't want to offend someone" mindset. I want it burned into the collective global psyche that CHINA'S government is the reason we're in this place today. Communist China is why we didn't have March Madness. Communist China is why the NBA/NFL seasons are so messed up, and why we'll likely not have a full college football season. Communist China is why athletic departments all across the NCAA are reeling, some of which will spend the next decade trying to recover. No one is impugning the Chinese people or land. People know how to separate the Chinese citizens from their awful, authoritarian government, and the latter is to blame. And when the dust settles on all this, I hope we have a leader who will make them pay dearly.

    None that I have heard, at least none that didn't have underlying medical issues. Still doesn't mean they can't get a really bad case though. From what I've read, the China virus appears to be weakening depending on which part of the globe you're on. Still can pack a punch though for sure. What's funny is when I hear people say it's just a bad cold or flu, well which is it? I had the flu 2 years ago and that thing knocked me out for about 2 weeks and I experienced heavy fatigue for at least a month, and I'm only 35 now.

    That was my first thought as well. Sure he's young and strong, but I don't know if I'd call a 300 lb kid someone that's in "perfect health" and in "great physical condition". Using his height and weight listed online, his BMI is 37.1. Anything greater than 30.0 is considered obese. We all know how dangerous the virus is for overweight/obese people by now. Not trying to smear anyone here, really hoping he pulls through and there are no long-term issues. That must suck to go through as a parent.

    College sports should just not even bother this year. Universities will go into CYA mode when a few players test positive for fear of getting sued or condemned by an angry mob. There's no way to make up for the lost revenue though, so they'll try any way they can to make it work. Maybe this will be a good time for universities to look at their budgets and decide if they really need a gender studies professor making $350,000/yr, or if an Assistant to the Vice Chancellor for Intersectional University Relations needs to exist.

    Well I DID have a dream last night he picks IU. I've never dreamed about a recruit choice before. (I hope to never again either)

    Doesn't seem manufactured to these girls.

    The law will require high school girls to prove their gender to participate in high school sports through a genital exam, DNA test, or testosterone levels test. The horror at having to prove you're a girl in order to compete against girls in high school sports. Yet, here we are.

    Has Archie said anything?

    During all my time at IU, as a student or alumni visiting friends or for sporting events, I honestly can't recall a single incident of racism. The only one I can actually recall (I wasn't there for it) is when we played Maryland for the B1G/ACC Challenge and that Hispanic player (I can't remember his name) torched us, and some fans chanted "*******". That was bad. Honestly though, I don't even know what people are debating anymore. So I should probably just steer clear. Even the people who are saying "all lives matter" agree that racism is bad and minorities matter just as much as non-minorities. Literally everyone agrees with that. I honestly don't get why there's so much division. All the last 10 days have been is strawman arguments and people tripping over themselves to look like they're the good guy in all this.
