  1. The Big Ten will play a conference-only football schedule for 2020 season amid COVID-19 pandemic. Bunch of cross P5 conference games are included. This could crush some Non P5 schools banking on buy games to survive. https://www.cbssports.com/college-football/news/big-ten-to-play-conference-only-football-schedule-for-2020-season-amid-covid-19-pandemic/ Here is an interesting take: https://www.indystar.com/story/sports/2020/07/09/big-ten-football-schedule-change-signals-beginning-end-2020-season/5409526002/ Smaller schools will lose sports. And people will lose their jobs. Hey, take it from Northern Illinois athletic director Sean Frazier, who was able to schedule Florida State shortly before the 2018 season. Northern Illinois received $1.6 million for the game. “Florida State, essentially, saved people’s jobs,” Frazier told the Associated Press. According to that AP story, 39 Power 5 schools scheduled 49 “buy games” for the 2020 season for a total of $65 million. UMass is scheduled to receive $1.9 million to play Auburn, which means if that game is canceled — when that game is canceled — UMass will be out nearly 20% of its $10 million budget for football. Who’s going to pay for that loss? Perhaps the UMass track and field teams, next spring. We’ll see.
  2. Urgent Care Rock Hill, Urgent Care Tesson Ferry, Urgent Care in St Charles and Mercy Hospital. All had no kits last month/ early this month. Urgent Care Farmington did. Results 10+ days.
  3. Yes it is wild. I have a relative in Indy and they can get next day results. They encourage everyone to get routine testing. Something is wrong here in STL.
  4. There was a girl's AAU tourney in Indy over the July 4th holiday. More than 200 teams played 600 games at two sites during a four-day tourney. While the state has a maximum of 250 people in a venue, IndyStar reports counted nearly 400 at one venue. The second venue reportedly had better crowd control. https://www.indystar.com/story/sports/high-school/2020/07/08/coronavirus-indiana-aau-scene-weighs-risk-and-reward/5393423002/
  5. Something is wrong here. Friend number 1 with symptoms, had to wait 10 days to get a result. Friend 2, with contact with a +, couldn't find any clinics with test kits on June 29 on June 30. He drove to Farmington to get tested. Here 9 days later he has no results. Friend 3 who had contact with a + tried to get tested on July 2. He finally got tested on July 6. They said results in 5 to 7 days. All three friends are off work until they get results. We cannot justify using up available testing kits on athletes, pro or college, while our working public can't get tested, or get timely results.
  6. Coach Tate's recruiting pull is undeniable, documented, and priceless. We also know that Coach Ford relies on his assistants to break down future opponents, so let's give Coach Tate ample credit there. What about his X's and O's? How big a voice is he on the bench? What does he handle for Ford, guards, bigs, offense, defense? Looking for someone who might know, not speculation.
  7. Oh come on. And if he turns an ankle in practice? Maybe you missed it but Jimerson broke his foot in practice.
  8. This is kind of a funny conversation, isn't it. Mr. Goodwin has averaged 34.5 mpg over three years. I don't recall him once, being 'wasted' where his performance declined. I don't recall any of his three seasons where he couldn't have played 2, 3, 4 or 6 extra games in the NCAA tourney. The team leader will be on the floor. Coach Ford will be focused on maximizing this season.
  9. Everyone’s opinion is good. Here is my take. Goodwin is an All American candidate. He is our team leader. He is a senior. He is arguably our best player. He has averaged almost 35 min over his career. If he can go 40, he goes 40. I don’t care if someone on the bench has their feelings hurt from lack of playing time.
  10. No need to 'predict'. Goodwin, Collins, French and Perkins will all average 30+ minutes a game, Goodwin closer to 35. French there too if he stays out of foul trouble. You don't sit your best players. Of the 200 game minutes, that leaves 80 min max for 8 players. Let them fight it out.
  11. Beadle is going to an ACC school two hours from his home. It is hard for me to criticize anyone staying close to home.
  12. Ex SLU target, and now Ex Bonnie, Robert Carpenter is headed to Pearl River CC, JUCO. Raise your hand if you were one of those who were hoping Carp signed as a Bill. According to Verbal Commits 252 transfers are still on the market, of the 980 listed.
  13. Thanks for finding this. And here is the A10 Preseason Poll from 2019. This is somewhat consistent with the Welser list. The last number is ( ) is where the team finished the season. They got LaSalle right! PRESEASON POLL (First-place votes in parenthesis) 1. VCU (19) ............................................................ 381 (8) 2.
