  1. This may be a dumb question, so anyone who knows more than me, feel free to call me out. If it came down to it, and the $h!t hits the fan, would it he possible to move all athletics to spring and summer of 2021? At least there’s a possibility of a vaccine having limited availability at that point. I know it’s not ideal, but it’s better than cancelling everything. Just from a financial and logistical perspective, would it be possible if, if it came down to it?
  2. Jeff Reynolds (@ReynoldsJD) Tweeted: The superintendent of schools in Dallas told MSNBC high school football in the state of Texas is highly unlikely in 2020. No HS football. In Texas. Prepare yourselves accordingly. copied from a tweet Earl Austin Jr. retweeted.
  3. This link is SLU’s statement on the ICE decision. https://www.slu.edu/about/leadership/messages/responding-to-regulations-affecting-our-international-students.php
  4. I was just bad shot after bad shot. It was appalling. They’re playing for $100,000+ each but seemed intent on “getting theirs.” So bad.
  5. That last 2 minutes for Big X was like watching a Crews era Billikens game.
  6. He’s still playing Javon Bess D. Big X up 38-33 at half. He’s definitely been standing wide open in the corner. Hopefully, they find him in the 2nd half.
  7. True. Hopefully, they can figure it out. I read today that Harvard and MIT are suing over it. We’ll see what hapens.
  8. Just turned on the TBT (and of course it goes straight to commercial, I forgot it was 2:00 Eastern), looks like Javon and Big X are up 25-24 with 4 minutes left in the 2nd quarter! Let’s go Javon!
  9. So keep the law the same but draft an exemption or amendment that allows students to retain their visas under extreme circumstances (AKA a global pandemic). Those sorts of qualifications are written all the time. Don’t just say “transfer or get out!”
  10. Very deep pockets. I listened to a Revisionist History podcast episode talking about university endowments and they singled out Stanford. That’s surprising.
  11. C’mon Brian, of course it is. These kids will still be taking classes, they’re just online classes. The government can hide behind technicalities, but what is the real, practical reason for kicking these kids out of the country, especially under such extraordinary circumstances? What’s the point? Other than it’s a political move? That’s not a rhetorical question. If you have an answer for me, I’d love to hear it.
  12. I know what HORSE is. And I was never saying anyone should social distance while playing basketball. I was simply pointing out that playing on the PGA tour allows for that sort of distancing, basketball doesn’t, so comparing NCAA basketball to how the PGA is running their operation is not apples to apples. No one is trying to social distance during a basketball game. Not sure where you got that idea from.
  13. This is basically my point if view. These kids already have visas. Yes, they’re visas are for educational purposes, but they’ll still be taking classes, it’s just online classes. This isn’t a wave of illegal immigrants swarming our borders. Unless, someone can provide me a real, practical reason for doing this, I can’t help but assume that it’s a political move in an election year, using a global pandemic to create political gain.
  14. I absolutely agree with what you’re saying. I’m not sure what will be or won’t be possible by November. But if some of these leagues can successfully complete their seasons, it could at least provide a blueprint to follow and provide some optimism that our season could realistically happen. But I agree, there are a lot of questions that we still have to answer before that can happen.
  15. Keep in mind, SLU is not planning to switch to online only classes this year, so it (hopefully) won’t effect Linssen or Lorentsson, assuming they can eventually get on campus. But it could be a big deal for a lot of student-athletes. I also read an article today saying that Harvard and MIT are suing over this decision. The issue is far from final.
