    NOT good. Things are getting far worse at the time we have (possible) answers. All I know is I don’t know who or what to believe.

    If the NBA can do it in a bubble, we should be able to do it in arenas with no fans.
    We'll all just watch on TV.
    ...he went up late, and I was already up there.

    Not to worry, Koch will just have to write another big check.

    Yes, but the NBA isolated players from spouses, kids, friends, and they were only going to places within the bubble. Colleges can't do a bubble so easily. Even if they could get players to isolate where they live, you still have lots of people coming around that you can't control. All kinds of staff support the whole behind-the-scenes system.

    With football, even if a few players got sick, there's enough on the roster for someone to step in and play. You get a few sick hoops players, or even the student managers, it becomes a major story line, which schools may be loathe to endure. Folks who bitch about state schools spending too much on athletics might ask why are we risking even more than money?

    I'd say the TV money is the only thing they'd try to play for, from an administrative standpoint. College kids are more likely to survive COVID, but just surviving isn't necessarily a good thing, as it can impact you long term.

    Until the vaccines start arriving, colleges may choose to hold off. The cases are skyrocketing across campuses in every state. They have enough to worry about just not collapsing the entire system, then worry about if we enjoy watching a game a few nights a week.

    I hope I'm wrong, because I love watching. But it's not looking good.

    My sense is that the season will happen in some for due to the money needed by the programs.

    That would be awesome if only because I'd probably get to meet him, and of course my first question would be how on earth was Greg Oden not called for an intentional foul!

    Normally, I'd think of Chris Jans as a potential replacement, but you gotta wonder if Wichita is going to stay away from former Marshall assistants. Jans was fired for making an ass of himself in a bar during his Bowling Green days, but he seems to have cleaned up his act at New Mexico State.
