  1. Wow. So 12 of the 16 players had it, Coach Ford, and possibly other coaches or staff. Plus, French had it earlier. At least there will be good immunity on the team during the postseason.
  2. 14 days is CDC recommendation. 10 days is acceptable if no symptoms. 7 days is acceptable if you have a negative test on day 6 or 7. https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/if-you-are-sick/quarantine.html City of St. Louis is still 14 days after last exposure: https://www.stlouis-mo.gov/government/departments/health/communicable-disease/covid-19/documents/upload/Quarantine-Guidance-for-Contacts.pdf Does anyone know what date SLU is expecting to be able to re-open the team's activities?
  3. Except that Majerus played a double post with a stretch big, and Ford tends to play 4 out and 1 in, which means you are really comparing Loe/Remekun to French/Linsen/Bell and Evans/Ellis to Perkins/Jacobs/Hargrove.
  4. This we can agree on; there are at least 2 guys on this team I would rather have the ball ahead of Goodwin with the game on the line (Collins, Perkins, and maybe Jacobs). Only Marque Perry and Larry Hughes were as good as Jett at getting a bucket with the game on the line. Goodwin just doesn't have the handle, crossover, or outside shot necessary for that role. Give me Yuri with the ball, Perkins and Gibson on the wings, and Goodwin ready to crash the offensive boards.
  5. This year's team would run that team out of the gym. Majerus's teams just didn't have enough raw talent and depth.
  6. I love Jett, but everyone forgets that Jett didn't even start until his senior season. He was basically a more polished version of Fred Thatch for several years at SLU. He had a great, great senior year, but Goodwin can do so many more things on the court.
  7. I respectfully disagree Steve. Yuri is a difference-making point guard with better a/o than anyone on that team. I would take Yuri over McCall, Goodwin over Jett, Perkins over Ellis, and French over Evans, and this team takes spots 5-10 without any debate. The Majerus team didn't have anywhere near enough talent to hang with this team. I think this team takes 18/20 games against them.
  8. I am hopeful as well since FSMW has been dropped from the streaming services. It really just depends whether they signed an exclusive local broadcast deal with FSMW. Being so late in the game, it is possible that the deal isn't exclusive for streaming.
  9. Tough crowd here. Bill Walton is an enjoyable, easy-going guy who delights with his constant randomness. Nobody else brings Dickie V's genuine energy and love for the game, plus he is a truly generous and charitable man. Hate the haters, not the media guys who bring positivity.
  10. You guys are really missing out. It is truly some of the best sitcom humor ever. You have to invest into the characters to truly appreciate it, but the character acting and writing is absurdly good.
  11. I use it nearly every day through fire stick and have never had issues.
  12. ESPN+ is a stand alone package for about $5/month. You don't need Hulu, cable, youtubeTV, or any other service to subscribe to it. It is truly the best value in the world for sports viewing. My primary sports interests are college basketball and professional and international soccer; it is amazing how much content ESPN+ offers for those sports.
  13. Fully agree. It is unlikely we are going to get to a point this season where you can have a normal crowd, so what is the purpose of creating any level of increased risk by adding a small group of scattered fans in an indoor setting? The good news is that it appears that there is now a good outlook for normalcy the following season.
  14. I am not one who normally gets too concerned about whether SLU and MU play, although I think it is lost opportunity to generate revenue and promote interest in both programs within the largest market in the state. However, with all the craziness and complexity of the COVID situation, travel restrictions, etc., it is absolutely insane that the two schools have not just picked up the phone and scheduled a game or two against each other over the next 6 weeks. It is the safest and logistically simplest option for both schools, and it would add a quality nonconference game for both schools. I guess
  15. The only reason Charter and UVerse have the regional Fox Sports right now is because their contracts signed pre-Sinclair acquisition were longer that the streaming services. Dish Network and every streaming service that has come up for renewal since the acquisition has dropped them. Unless Sinclair changes their demands, it will eventually be off all of the services, and then it will come back.
