    OT: Isaias

    A friend of mine further south in Miami said the same thing, complete nothingburger. Granted it veered a bit north, but he said virtually nothing in the wind department either. We'll probably get some rain and wind.

    NBA Restart

    The quality of competition and play in the LA/LA game last night was really fun to watch.

    OT: Baseball is screwed!

    MLB literally Leeroy Jenkins-ed this season. Absolutely no plan. Meanwhile the NBA and NHL are operating full steam ahead as of now with a rigorous and quick testing turnaround and no positive tests yet.

    UConn: Cancelling 2020 Season An Option?

    Just because it's not deadly or potentially serious for a young person doesn't mean they can trot out and play football if confirmed to be infected. They'd pass it along to others, including those who are more vulnerable.

    2020-2021 UConn Men's Hockey

    If that season starts in January, that's an achievable goal. Reading between the lines, it sounds like HE is willing to give it a go playing conference-only even if it means there's a limited or no NCAA tournament. Since most HE trips don't require staying overnight and none in a plane, this...

    OT: Baseball is screwed!

    A bit of overstatement and jumping to conclusions. Cases in MA are not actually confirmed to be rising, despite what some alarmists claim. 7-day weighted test positivity has hovered between 1.7% and 2% for over a month, number of hospitalized patients continues to trend down, and 3-day...

    OT: Baseball is screwed!

    Considering mental health in an either/or fashion is a gross misapplication of mental health. The problem with the arguments in that post, which are valid, is that it's presented in a "Well, the effects of being in school are also bad, so we HAVE to keep them home." That's the wrong approach...

    OT: Baseball is screwed!

    You can't approach the school (or MLB) topic with a binary either/or solution. There isn't a "good" option between not sending kids to school and sending them to school. They can't be unilaterally kept home for another four months on a vague premise of "saving lives" because of the...

    OT: Covid-19 air travel

    Another option is finding a flight that's very empty, calling the airline ahead and asking if they could receive any kind of special boarding/deplaning options to reduce wait times. For instance, ask if they could wait and deplane last or get on the plane early. Planes do use HEPA filters...

    ACC 2020 Schedule: 10+1?

    MA quarantine can be circumvented by: - Negative test result <72 hours prior to travel. - Negative test result after you arrive. - No requirement for travelers from New England, NY, NJ, Hawaii (!!) You must quarantine upon arrival until you get your test results. The Governor did admit that...

    Lamont says UConn would need to quarantine after road games

    It's also markedly easier to enforce strict exposure protocols on paid professional athletes as opposed to unpaid students. Pros don't have to go to class, live in communal spaces, and generally interact with far more of the general public.

    Jeff Jacobs: Herbst happy UConn ‘back to the place where all the magic happened.’

    There was ample discussion and reporting after the fact that UConn was never considered a "favorite" over UL. The NC basketball schools wanted us, but the southern football schools were deadset against us and got support in their corner from the former Big East schools. FSU and Clemson held...

    If a relatively young coach didn't have a career goal to one day coach at the highest level of his profession, I'd be a bit concerned.

    I agree, so is this one. (that's an excellent article in general on what goes into vaccine production) Only noting that the start of the season is something that may end up out of the direct control of schools and coaches. Hoping that's not the case, of course - the program appears headed in...

    Hope you're right, but the virus - and the public's willingness to respond - will dictate this more than university administrators.

    Gavitt proposes starting hoops season early

    Taiwan has been allowing fans into their baseball games since early May. They've increased capacity since then, and allowed fans to sit in their seats with *no mask* New Zealand had rugby matches with full stadiums. WE CAN DO THIS TOO! It requires everyone doing their job.

    B1G goes conference only

    But that's the same point I was making - what's the actual reason for it? Presumably, the only reason schools would adjust their schedule is for health concerns. They're not going to give up profitable OOC games because lolololwhynot. But moving to a conference-only schedule makes...

    Right now, pushing the season to the spring is the best chance they have of getting in a complete schedule. The sooner they realize that and begin planning, the better. This way, there's tangible goals that can be set, data markers to watch to allow spring play to proceed, testing...

    Hurley suggests the season shouldn't start on time. Clearly, he should retire!

    Anyone other than those who've been involved in the research who offers a prediction is a fool. There's literally no relevant prior in the history of medicine that mirrors this level of vaccine development. Other than the pre-defined periods of time a study must take in certain phases, a...

    Comparing numbers now and from March/early April are difficult. The testing capacity in those days was *so* low that so many cases went undetected. This is an interesting article that talks about some researchers who tried to estimate how many people were actually infected in NYC at the time...
