I mean NO ONE of twenty people who should have been contacted will verify it is true? This Houston station is owned by GOW MEDIA which is a local Houston company and not one of the major chains like IHeartMedia, Cumulus or Entercom. So maybe they just don't care about what they put out over the air.

Would you put your name on something when you know there WILL be repercussions (Like getting fired or investigated).

FYI...Deep Throat wasn't the guys real name who ratted out Nixon.
I think Deep Throat was VERIFIED by Woodward. I am talking about UNVERIFIED information. If Woodward had found out that Deep Throat was lying to him...I doubt he would have printed the story. Woodward met Felt seven times in the fall of 1972 and the spring of 1973, in a variety of locations: Felt’s house, a Maryland bar, Felt’s FBI office, and — most famously — a parking garage in Virginia. Woodward didn’t take notes while the two were together. As soon as the reporter returned to his office, he typed his memos, stringing together the leads that Felt had given him. A good example of laziness is the WASHINGTON POST and CNN failing to verify the story on Nicholas Sandmann before printing the fake news and putting it on TV. It cost them both megamillions.

You said NAMED SOURCES not verified...Don't change your story now. You can verify your source without releasing their name which is what Woodward did with DEEP THROAT. Don't you think the reporters know the names of their sources.

Wouldn't you consider a source reliable (Verified) if you get the same story from several locations.

My comment was based on the story about the 20 Memphis Covid players....which could be verified with a named scource...just call the Memphis SID. As best I could tell, the Houston station did not do that. The vast majority of stories can easily be verifed by a named source. I see lots of stories where an unnamed source states something off the wall and the reporter IMMEDIATELY posts the story without bothering to verify it. Case in point...Nicholas Sandmann. Another is the latest story from THE ATLANTIC from no name sources when there are now 10 NAMED SOURCES that verify the story is fake news. Then there is the Dan Rather story that ruined his career. I can list more stories by lazy reoorters who could have gotten a named source but never bothered to do it, if you want me to. What happeded with DEEP THROAT does not change the points I am making. At least Woodward bothered to verify the information he was given.

If you are referring to the Atlantic Story about Trump talking about troops...

How can there be a verified source saying he never said it...How is that possible? They can say they never heard him say it.

Fox News, CNN, New York Times, Washington Post and the AP have partially corroborated the story.

Unfortunately, they're are many players in that locker room that are waiting for their chance to play, don't punish them for not doing anything wrong. If you have some defensive players available, let them play. Who cares if we lose. But yeah, it's sort of strike one for Ryan Silverfield as a head coach for the Memphis Tigers. Getting Covid is one thing, but potentially getting Covid that relates to a Party Bus of all things is a whole different story.

Strike 2 !!

It would have been better for the university to release their statement right after notifying Houston....assuming that’s why the leak came out of TX. Admin could’ve gotten out ahead of it and crafted the message versus allowing noise to trickle out around it. It’s not a good look all around (especially when players feel like they need to go on the defensive).

It’s also being reported “No one is in serious condition”. So it may be much to do about nothing.

Does the AAC have a minimum number of players available in order to play the game?

I know some other conferences have instituted minimums.

Yes. My aunt passed away yesterday due to COVID. She had underlying conditions but was nowhere near death.

People that have been fortunate to not experience death during this sure seem to think it’s no big deal.

Have they had to deal with funerals that can’t happen? Have they had to deal with not being able to be with that person at their death? Have they had to put on hazmat suits?

These are real people. These are people with meaning. They are loved.

Good lord....even Fox News verified it. Trump even asked for the reporter from Fox that verified it, to be fired. Her colleagues at Fox backed her up.

Damn....some of you need to wake up.

40 Dudes on a party bus, Ike finds this UNBELIEVABLE, were any chicks on the bus.
These Dudes need to come with Ike and party with the leprechauns, plus the leprechauns r immune to the coronas.
IKE'S words of wisdom to these Dudes
U gotta watch what u do, u gotta watch who u hang around with and never drink and drive.
if u can't find a Unicorn, stay put, Ike will send one in the morning

As a school policy Arkansas State does not announce positive covid cases within the Athletic Department unless it reaches a point that we would have to stop practices.

From what I have been told:

1. There was nothing in this weeks Covid Tests to preclude the team from playing at Kansas State this weekend. By rule, we have to have 53 available players in order to make the trip.

2. There are multiple players out tomorrow. As of this moment, none of those players have tested positive for Covid, however all of them were not feeling well. They have been isolated from the team and are being tested every 48 hours.

3. No matter what happens, the minute we show up missing players tomorrow, people are going to assume Covid, and it will up us to decide how to address that, especially with Goodson accusing us on Twitter.

Party Bus or Limo Bus is a bus or airport shuttle style mini bus with a nice leather interior, led lights and a sound system, and a stripper pole.

And it is usually on a bar crawl route so basically a shuttle from bar to bar. If privately booked/insured you can even drink on board in some states.
