    Coronavirus and Sports Only - PLEASE and THANK YOU

    Valparaiso high school football...went to state in 5A last year. Won their first two games this year (against Penn and LaPorte)......week three game cancelled against Griffith due to covid issues at Griffith. Week four game cancelled against Michigan City because of covid issues at Michigan City. Played in week five against Chesterton and won a hard fought game. Week 6 and 7 games now cancelled because of covid issues with the Valpo team (20 in quarantine). So seven weeks in, they will have only played three games. In other region football, Hammond schools are 100% virtual for the semester and had originally cancelled all contact sports. School board voted last week to allow contact sports. The four Hammond schools will start playing in week 7 and have three games each before playing in the sectional. The one good Hammond football team -- Morton -- was already struck hard with talent loss as they had Cincinnati recruit JoJo Johnson transferred to Merrillville last January. In August, after the Hammond schools announced that they were postponing fall sports, three other members of their football team transferred to Merrillville as well, including a D1 recruit defensive lineman and their starting quarterback who had thrown 17 touchdowns and no interceptions the year before. They would have had a decent team, now they've lost a lot of talent and will only have three games under their belt.

    The Houston Cougars game against North Texas has been cancelled due to cases on the North Texas team. This the FOURTH opponent that has cancelled against the Cougars due to covid issues....SMU, Rice, and Baylor had cancelled already. Baylor had been a replacement after a previous cancellation,

    With covid, teams with depth are going to be on the winning end a lot more often. I don’t think depth wise we match up with the big boys so that makes it even tougher.

    Is it wrong to hope our Ohio State and Michigan games get covid cancelled?

    Houston-Baylor cancelled after Baylor fails to meet the Big 12 minimum number of eligible players at a position to compete. The teams had scheduled each other for this weekend just a weekend ago after last weekend's openers against other teams were postponed.

    The high school I teach at and keep stats for had our game cancelled this week due to 20 players on the opposing team being quarantined -- 15 starting today, 5 already under quarantine. We are ranked #3 i the 4A coach's poll and they are tenth......the truth is that we would likely beaten them pretty badly. Sagarin has us rated as 16 points better than them and last year we beat them 37-7 in the regular season and then 20-0 in the sectional (where they basically conceded in the second half and ran the ball every down just to keep the clock moving).

    College Bball Thread

    Maximum number of games dropped to 25. Minimum to qualify for the NCAA tournament is 13. Suggested by the committee was a minimum of 4 non-conference games. Personally, I hope the Big Ten drops the number of conference games to 18 instead of the 20 they've been doing if the non-conference schedule is going to be decreased. Get rid of the stupid conference games in early December.

    Louisville is going to have send prostitutes to their recruits instead of having them come to campus to meet them. Y'all know someone at L'ville is working on a W.h.o.r.e Dash app. (periods put in so it didn't get blocked. We're all adults here....or at least we pretend to be).

    Positive news regarding coronavirus thread

    Back in July we needed to get my daughter tested for covid and the earliest appointment they would give her was 8 days later with 4 to 6 more days to get the results. Useless. My son had to get tested to return to work as he was sick Monday. Got tested Tuesday morning and received the results Wednesday afternoon. He’ll of a lot better. oh, he was negative.

    Twitter world going back and forth right now on the “Oct 17 is a confirmed date” to “nothing confirmed yet”. Seriously wish that the media would stop trying to be first instead of trying to be right. It seems obvious that it will be starting up.....we’ve waited this long, so I wish that some of the “journalists” would sit back and wait to report instead of throwing darts on a start date.

    Getting ready to play IU's first game. I'm letting all other Big Ten teams and Power 5 teams be computer AI controlled. Teams have ten game schedule except for the Big 12 which has 9 -- although I will probably add on a tenth game. The week one schedule sees only Big Ten teams playing. Indiana opens the season going to Wisconsin.

    Three weeks in and no confirmed positives at the high school I teach at. We have had pretty good safety procedures and kids have been great about wearing masks.

    On the 19th Anniversary of 9/11

    I was teaching and the teacher next to me came to tell me a second plane had hit. I didn’t even know about a first plane at that point....we aren’t in the eastern time zone so while most of those in Indiana would have been in school when it hit, I was getting ready for school. i was not scheduled to proctor the ISTEP. We watched the news the rest of the day.
