I don't disagree with anything that was said by BandDad, but I do agree it should be split to political or smack.. Just make sure to get your flu vaccines everyone and you'll be safe from the corona virus!!

CBI tournament cancelled, probably along with some other useless events.

WHO declares global pandemic.

If we had anyone with brains in the conference office, they'd have announced CUSA was holding the tournament without fans on purpose.

I haven't had a flu vaccine since I was a teenager I suppose - over 35 years ago & I haven't had the flu since then either.

Would be debatable if I would get a corona vaccine.

RE: C-USA tournament in Frisco
I see all the flu comparisons. There's an article on the possibility of the NCAA tournament being cancelled and the comments are all full of "But Michael Jordan's flu game!" etc.

Yes, the stats say that people under sixty should be relatively safe, and I thank God that this virus has a very low effect on children. What people are glossing over is that you can walk around infectious but without symptoms for a week, spreading contagion everywhere you go, everywhere you touch. Most healthy younger people still have older people that they'd rather not die just yet - parents, grandparents, former teachers, their priest, folks at their church, whoever. So scoff at it, minimize the risk if you wish, but the risks remain real. Read the news out of Italy.

I just love how people are so certain that this is going to be a nothingburger when damn few have seen its effects yet. You take precautions in advance in order to prevent as much damage as possible, praying that it fizzles out and is nowhere near as bad as it could have been. Concluding that there is little risk and ignoring those precautions and the advice of infectious disease scientists and doctors is rolling the dice with your loved one's lives as well as that of people you don't know and will likely never even see, but you might kill.

My wife has an IgA deficiency. This means that she has little to no resistance to infections that cross the mucus membranes, like your mouth, nose, and lungs. Forgive me if I take the threat seriously. We barely have tests yet, they are actively refusing to test sick people who have symptoms that match unless they have travelled or have a documented contact with a sick person. South Korea was testing 10,000 people a day last week. Hell, S.Korea has drive through testing.

To clarify - it isn't a political attack to say that our government's response has been suboptimal.

Edit - "NBC NEWS: The attending physician of the U.S. Congress & Supreme Court, Dr. Brian Monahan, briefed Senate Staff yesterday in a closed-door meeting that he expects anywhere from 70 up to 150 million people in the U.S. to contract coronavirus, per two sources @JulieNBCNews".

I was joking. I take it seriously. I do think there is a bit of fear mongering going on, but it is also extremely serious. I'm sorry for your wife's condition.

Fear-mongering is a good way to put it.

Does Norton get heat for bowing out early?

<shrug> Thanks. Normally, it's not a big deal. She is more susceptible to colds and the like. Her doc sent her to an infectious disease scientist at UAB. For instance, she's been given a measles shot repeatedly, months apart, and has zero immunity to it.

Something like this, that's a whole different ballgame.

Lost by three after a solid season. That seems unreasonable to me.

Couple of early phantom fouls got Miyah in foul trouble & we didn’t recover. Miyah had to play soft defense the second half, which resulted in several easy buckets by La Tech. I worry about our PG play next year. Mitchell is normally the backup, but they started playing Whitley at PG today when Miyah was out. The women’s team did get 20 wins this year, so hopefully they’ll get in a post-season tournament.

There hasn't been a 2 year build up of head chopping on here for Norton's head.
