  1. I think we should watch what happens with this million dollar tournament going on.
  2. It would seem to me that the University could get creative to work around this. Set up one on one polly sci classes with Steve. I am more worried about even playing if they go online.
  3. Just caught the end of the game. Bess is one hell of a defensive player.
  4. I don’t totally agree with your tax statement. I bet many in the lugged seats have charitable contributions greater than the standard deduction.
  5. At the end of the year he looked a lot thinner to me
  6. Maybe a deposit to hold the tickets?
  7. I gave up my law degree in the 3rd grade so maybe some on here who went a little further can weigh in. Since no one can prove where you caught a virus why would there be any liability anywhere? By having someone sign a waiver aren’t you saying it’s dangerous to come in here? (my firm is requiring this for visitors)
  8. My suggestion to you and CBFan is to move. Who wants to live in the sticks?
  9. I don’t believe it has to be or is a people numbers thing just the number of sports offered. If this is correct women’s volleyball would offset football.
  10. UCON announced they are dropping 4 sports and cutting their athletic budget by 15%. They will still have a significant deficit. Sign of the times. I hope our programs don't get hit too hard. I am glad Biondi is no longer president.
  11. This is a point I have made in the past. I think most do not. That said most aren’t season ticket holders.
  12. I don’t disagree with the premise of your post but we dropped hockey because Sid Salomon stopped backing it. Father O’Connell was pushing D2 because he didn’t see the value of sports and more importantly the university was going broke. Huge short term debt in a period of astronomical interest rates.
  13. I am a guy who has argued that the basketball program has been getting whatever funding they have requested. I am not sure that will be the case with COVID. Budgets will probably be cut in all university departments. It wouldn't shock me if they don't replace him,maybe just move Ray .
  14. I don’t know if it’s fair to blame any athletic director for talks of going D2. Father O’Connell was the president of the U pushing that direction. If my memory clock is correct Charles Schroeder was the Guy in charge of athletics around that time. A really good guy Larry Preo was around that time as AD.
