    Coronavirus and Sports Only - PLEASE and THANK YOU

    It won't happen but it'd be cool if we had a full 12 game schedule of conference games this year.

    They should make Notre Dame a quasi-Big 10 school this year.

    2019-2020 NBA Thread

    If we're being honest about the facts, the virus poses an incredibly small risk to professional athletes. So many college and pro athletes have tested positive for the virus without even knowing they had it because they didn't have any symptoms. And the NBA bubble is going to be one of the safest places in the country. Oladipo isn't sitting out because of the virus. He plans to travel to the bubble and be around his teammates. He's just worried about getting injured. I can't say I blame him. He just came back from a tough injury and the Pacers aren't contenders this season. No reason to risk it.

    IUBB - 2020 Off-Season News

    The many Justin Smith stories over the past few years have rubbed me the wrong way. Can't say I'm sad to see that circus leave town.

    Bye bye to their students. I definitely wouldn't waste an entire semester of college on online classes, especially if I was an incoming freshman. And then there's tuition which is another matter.

    I've been craving some late-night half-price apps at Applebee's (I have expensive taste obviously) but I'll probably wait a bit. I really just want gyms to open up. I was able to snag a treadmill when things shutdown but not any weights.

    Yeah, I'm not sure that opening restaurants is the best idea, but I'm glad that at least they aren't allowed to open until the 11th. They will have some time to figure out how to safely reopen.

    What are your thoughts on retail? I personally don't see a problem with it. Folks have been packing into target and Walmart for the last 6 weeks. This won't be much different. If anything it could reduce crowding because everyone won't be packed into the same 2-3 stores. I think opening them before restaurants makes sense.

    Governor Holcomb's plan sounds very reasonable and data driven to me. Glad to see a plan to move forward and get to a "new normal."

    Are we really justifying government officials trying to ban people from accessing their own private property? While their governor did that, she left the lottery open, because, ya know, can't cut off that government revenue source.

    Coronavirus and Its Impact

    The number of confirmed cases is pretty meaningless, imo. 25-50% of people are asymptomatic. There are tens of thousands of unconfirmed cases in the state, and millions in the country. 80% of ventilators and 44% of ICUs are available in Indiana. The number of beds, ventilators, and ICUs in use has been decreasing over the past couple weeks.

    Coronavirus and Its Impact

    The last I saw, 1.8% of deaths in NY were in people under 65 without underlying conditions. There are always outliers with any virus, but if you're young and healthy you should be ok.
