    Who is the Uconn GOAT? It's all in the numbers...maybe.

    I'll go with Diana. The one national championship she didn't win was her freshman year after two starters went down with season-ending injuries, and she had the worst game of her career- 1 for 15 shooting against Notre Dame. I've never seen a more amazing basketball player. Ever.

    NCAA sets a Nov 25 start date

    Connecticut congressman Jahana Hayes is sick with Covid-19, her temperature spiking, her breathing more difficult. She had quarantined before when her husband, a Waterbury police detective, came down with the disease. This is widespread, and no one is safe. Not congressmen, not basketball...

    Good News.....So Far

    I hear ya. Actually, I was wrong about the percentage positive. Today it was up to 1.6%, and Governor Lamont is worried. The number hospitalized is now over 70, the highest number since July... If only it were a matter of opinion....If only it weren't real.....

    Good News.....So Far

    A word of caution. Connecticut's positive rate is now above 1%, this week 1.2%. We've had a 44% increase in positive cases over the previous week. And infections per 100,000 population, which used to be 1 or 2, is now 5. We used to have the lowest or second lowest infection rate in the...

    Maya Nnaji. Amazing talent.

    Lou's play in the WNBA

    I just wonder whether her injury has recurred, whether it is causing her either pain and/or making it difficult to maneuver. A tremendous talent like KLS just doesn't all of a sudden become timid; doesn't all of a sudden shoot under 30% for a season from three; doesn't all of a sudden, after...

    Ominous Campus Covid Event - Residence Hall Quarantine [Merged Thread]

    U of Alabama had something like 560 positive cases last time I checked. Are students' lives there being sacrificed in order to get the football season in?

    OT: Tough times with weather, Covid, etc for many of us.

    My wife and I are both at risk, cancer survivor and immunocompromised. So we're both staying home mostly, We're lucky to be in Connecticut, which has achieved now one of the lowest rates of new infections in the country. But here in southwestern Connecticut, people are getting very blasé...

    6 UConn football players test positive for coronavirus

    This virus is so infectious, it wouldn't take much at all for this to happen. Takes a great effort to keep from being infected.

    OT: UNC shuts down in person classes [merged thread]

    The University of North Carolina has discovered many infected students, and "The Daily Tarheel" went bonkers on the university's leaders: "...(UNC) Provost Bob Blouin and the rest of the administration are far too eager to...

    PAC 12 cancels ALL SPORTS until 2021 -- including Basketball.

    The states that refused to take action early on, which are now experiencing massive rates of infection, now have four months to accept science and modern public health practices. If they do what Europe did, then there is an outside chance that in January, something could come out of the season...

    UConn women’s freshmen are eager to make some noise on the court

    The Courant just published an article saying that out-of-state students would not be permitted to remain on campus this fall. What does that mean for UConn's women's basketball roster?

    OT: Big 10 to officially cancel football season tomorrow

    That's exactly it! It's the fact that players were balking at the requirement to indemnify the universities should the players get sick that seemed to stick in their craw. And also the growing talk about a college players' union. I think the conference, and behind them the NCAA, got really...

    Sue Bird Ruminates On WNBA Future

    Is Paige the most celebrated recruit in the media that we've ever had? I can't recall any, except maybe Diana Taurasi, who've received this sort of media attention before they played a game for Connecticut. Just feels like lots and lots of celebrity. Naturally, I really hope it all pans...

    COVID Tests Passed

    I stand corrected. However... "More than 500 major league players swapped flannels for khakis during World War II, and such well-known players as Stan Musial, Joe DiMaggio and Ted Williams served their nation off the...

    COVID Tests Passed

    Thank God! But I can't believe this season is ever going to happen. One doctor interviewed on TV this morning said that only one state- Vermont- can safely open its schools. Last week the NYT published a chart showing that over 6,500 students had come down with Covid-19 on universities, and...

    WCB>WNBA and MCB>NBA ?

    I think the problem with the WNBA is that they're all really good, and there's little separation. So no dynasties. You don't have a New York Yankees, for example. Or a Big Red Machine. In WCBB, you see tremendous teams that power through their schedules. And when it comes to the Elite Eight...

    The NCAA and Waivers

    Yes, do athletes get waivers unless they're transferring to UConn? Is this totally ridiculous? Absolutely ridiculous? Or a total joke? Evina Westbrook. How in the world...?

    Players/Teams I’m Most Excited to Watch This Season (WNBA)

    If I recall correctly, something like 10% of the WNBA players tested came up positive. How in the world can these teams play basketball? Wasn't it something like two NBA players testing positive on one team that led the NBA to cancel its season? Seems as though everyone is hoping against...

    Delle Donne denied medical opt-out by WNBA

    Sounds as though the WNBA quietly pulled that committee decision, without telling the public that it had done so. Seems as though Thibault can't do what he's doing without a 180 from the league. A Rosanne Rosanna Danna? "Never mind!"

    Polish players

    Not a virus like this one. Nearly 140,000 dead so far. And the disease is only getting started in many of the country's biggest states. Not a virus like this one. We need massive mobilization, not complacency.

    OT: WNBA coronavirus testing

    We're the 4th most densely populated state in the nation. I-95 through Connecticut is one of the most heavily travelled roads in the country. Fairfield County, the state's most populated county, is inextricably linked to New York City. Indeed, more people commute out of Manhattan and Brooklyn...

    Delle Donne denied medical opt-out by WNBA

    Whatever way this comes out, you can be absolutely certain that the WNBA now wishes its committee had ruled her eligible to opt out. The league looks terrible. And far worse after EDD's letter. Guaranteed that the league president is appalled by this entire PR fiasco.

    Delle Donne denied medical opt-out by WNBA

    Seriously? That "panel" ignored the considered medical opinion of her personal doctor. That "panel" never bothered to interview her, or for that matter, doesn't appear to have included any Lyme Disease specialists. this smells of a decision that was heavily influenced by a desire to get as...

    OT: WNBA coronavirus testing

    The figure in the state of Connecticut is under 1% positive out of all tests performed daily. We're the best i the nation. But we're the third smallest state geographically, and lots of people travel through, or travel to or from Fairfield County into the country's biggest city. So we're not...

    Delle Donne denied medical opt-out by WNBA

    I'm really sorry to hear about your wife's struggles. Of course, her struggles are also yours, as her spouse. Just rooting for both of you. I have immunosuppression issues as well, so Covid-19 strikes fear in me. I don't think younger people and those without key vulnerabilities can fathom...

    Delle Donne denied medical opt-out by WNBA

    Reread the quote from Dr. John Aucott, the director of Johns Hopkins Lyme Disease Research Center. I suspect that the panel's opinion was weighted toward what the league wanted them to conclude. It's not as if team doctors aren't in the business of putting kids back on the playing field or the...
