Why are we still trying to have a season? Things are as bad as they’ve ever been and only getting worse. I hate that we’re barreling along with a season.

Great, what are the odds any of the men's players haven't been in contact with any of the women's players?

Pitino’s idea of pushing the season back until March is looking good at this point...

Geez. 14 days everytime there is a positive case? That’s a long freaking time. How come football and other sports don’t shut down whole team for 14 days when there’s a positive case? No way season goes through if they’re going to be that crazy about it. Maybe They are just being extra cautious because the season hasn’t started yet - baseball had hiccups early(Marlins) - NBA a little bit (Lou Williams )
and football had some issues early on , however we are hitting the High Point of the coronavirus cases. I mean I cud see 7 days, maybe 10. But 14. And yes I know It can stay dormant in your system for up to 14 days but just saying - lord.

Well hopefully these vaccines are effective enough to at least ease some of the restrictions/precautions and a season is able to be played.

Serious question, do the men’s and women’s team typically interact with each other during the season?

I don’t think quarantining the entire team 14 days after every positive test is realistic. If that is the standard, forget playing a season.

You should be doing like nfl. Test, test test. Play until you have symptoms and/or a positive test.

You can’t do it any other way.

yes, they typically do. This year, my guess is they are being advised not to.

I don't think college basketball players are going to be first in line for the vaccines. Think maybe middle of 2021
