Southern Conference Tournament underway here in Asheville. I'm hoping the top 4 seeds (#1-ETSU, #2-Furman, #3-UNCG and #4 WCU) advance to the semis tomorrow. It would help bring more people to town spending money due to the close proximity of all but UNCG.

I miss being able to walk over and watch App get bounced in the first round. :ohno:

Terps share the B1G title for the first time since moving to the B1G. Was at the game yesterday, great senior day. Glad we stuck around to watch them cut down the nets. :thumb:

ETSU beats Wofford to win the SOCON. They could be a tough out in the NCAA's.

Big 10 is cancelled. It only makes sense to cancel the entire tourney at this point.

It's a shame, this thing could've been played, minus spectators, and it would've been a good thing. There's caution and then there's over caution. There were ways to make this work where the only folks exposed would be the young and healthy, and it would've been a good piece of normalcy in an otherwise terrible spate of news and circumstances. There's a balance there and unfortunately no one appears willing to look for the balance for fear of being labeled a denier or conspiracy theorist. Same goes for other college spring sports and even youth leagues. Heck, I'm going to work everyday for the foreseeable future, as are millions of other Americans everyday. We're not shutting everything down and hiding in our homes for a month.

Nebraska's coach having a common cold was probably the final straw.

89Jr just told me he was talking to one of the Terp players this morning who has a class with him and they were afraid everything would get cancelled. Imagine working your whole life for a shot at top seed in the tourney and having it all just disappear. A VAST majority of NCAA players... this was their last time to play high level bball. :cry:

I had the same thought and I hope you’re right but I’ve seen zero indication from credible sources and experts that suggest you are. Travel, facility staff, refs, multiple teams, tv crews...and the chance of community spread becomes significant. It’s not 5 on 5 even without spectators it’s still hundreds at each site. This thing has been around longer and infected WAY more people than we are aware of or what’s being reported.

I think it happens regardless of what we do. If this thing spreads as easily as it seems, outside of locking people up in their homes for a month I don't see how we stop it from spreading. And I don't think anyone is proposing locking all homes for a month.

Mitigation. As SDhornet mentioned, shallowing the curve. The more precautions we take, the less exposure and the lower the death rate.

That's why the only logical course of action in that thought sequence is to shut every business/school/church/government down now, require people to stay in their homes for a minimum of two weeks, and only then let people out. Anything short of that is risking exposure. :coffee:

So let perfection be the enemy of the good. Gotcha.

You’re usually more rational than this.
