    Wuhan Coronavirus

    THIS. The testing is an absolute joke. My wife works at a retirement facility and they we’re all tested, won’t get results back for two weeks...What is the point?! Average age of death in the 80’s? Probably 20-30 years longer than I’ll get. Yeah I’m gonna go ahead and move on with my life. The...

    Big12 Baseball and O’Brate opening

    My question to the counter would be, why does mlb need a 40 round draft? NFL has 7, nba only 2. I’m not sure I understand why the draft was so long to begin with? Legitimate question, I don’t know the ins and outs of the pro baseball system. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Wrestling Pokes Might Have Back-to-Back #1 Recruiting Classes...

    How high do you think Gfeller could finish if he is reinstated? Also, seemed like Sheets and Wittlake, and even Hone made tremendous strides late in the season, what do you think their ceilings are next year? Wittlake seems like the kind of dude that could win it all now with the right matchups...

    Basketball Team Expectations

    Just hope we can figure out how to not dig ourselves a huge hole early in conference play this year. If we can at least split the first half of conference, I will feel really good about getting higher than an 8 seed in the tournament.

    Yes, Parker was basically gone after last season, then changed his mind after everyone thought he was gone. Wouldn't expect him back. Hopefully we can get Polcovich back, along with the seniors.

    Wow, well that definitely could change some things.

    Big12 Baseball and O’Brate opening

    I don't even think it will matter all that much for baseball. Seniors Garcia, Leeper, McCusker, Cabbiness, etc and probably Parker Scott, are all going to go pro regardless of whether they get an extra year or not. Sucks more that we don't get to see what this team could have done this season...

    NCAA grants year of eligibility back to spring sports athletes

    Interested to see how this affects softball. With Eberle being a grad transfer senior, would she even want to come back? We also have a freshman pitcher that thew a no hitter a few weeks ago. How is she going to feel going into her sophomore year, when she expected to be our ace, but has to sit...

    Sports

    It was so weird turning on the ESPN app last night and seeing only Sportscenter, along with a bunch of rerun games. Sportscenter has nothing but the virus to talk about, so that is already getting super old.

    NCAA cancels remaining winter and spring championships

    I work in commercial real estate, have a baby on the way, and have a wife who is an hourly employee, trust me I am as concerned about the economic impact as anyone. However, I believe the impact would be far greater without taking major action now. I am probably pretty clearly not a Trump...

    NCAA cancels remaining winter and spring championships

    Understood, its a valid concern. Hopefully by taking these measures, the spread will be minimized and we can get back to normal in the very near future.

    NCAA cancels remaining winter and spring championships

    But again, the markets were already shifting negatively a few weeks ago. How much worse could it get if we don't contain the spread of this? If everything goes back to normal in a month, the markets will likely rebound accordingly, and everything will be fine. Its a short run hit aimed at...

    NCAA cancels remaining winter and spring championships

    Honestly, at the end of the day, what is the down side to being overly cautious about this? We don't have sports for a month? Consider that, there is no up side to down playing this. Its already spread all over the world, the markets would react negatively regardless.

    NCAA cancels remaining winter and spring championships

    Is it? Because you acknowledged that its still spreading in So Cal. Think before you type.
