Sometimes you just have to roll with the punches and chalk it up to bad luck. I hate it for them, but it had to be done.Agree. And do you then give all those underclassmen an extra year for the year they “lost” waiting again behind seniors, and so on? Where does it end? This would be a huge cluster. It’s an emotional response. Just cut the losses and move forward. It’s unfortunate, but life’s not fair.
Of course, it won’t be gone by next Tuesday. If you run a company and the majority of your revenue came from one event, then you’d probably hold out as long as possible before canceling it. If every school had been willing to play in an empty arena, then it would probably still be on. Once blue bloods like Duke and Kansas bowed out, they had no choice. Ultimately, they did the right thing, but that’s easier for us to say. We don’t have over 50% of our revenue at stake.This epidemic is NOT going to go away by next Tuesday. There is absolutely no excuse for the NCAA to be dragging their a$$ after every major conference with a scheduled conference tournament this weekend has cancelled their tournament.
Support your small business owner whenever given the opportunity. They work so very hard out of love for what they do. Now, more than ever, they truly need us! MM and his life partner make fantastic food and drink so if you’re going out to grab lunch and you see the “life mobile” stop by and get some food, your stomach will thank you!!!!Stuff like this has a disproportionate impact on (very) small businesses. Hope you two can ride it out without too much disruption. I hope people can have some sense of proportion about all this. It is very serious -- deadly even -- but it can't take over our lives.
I tried to support Food Lion today by buying toilet paper and they were out.Support your small business owner whenever given the opportunity. They work so very hard out of love for what they do.

I wouldnt be surprised.Oh man! Not the off season! It's ugly most years in hear, but this one's going to set a new standard for cannibalism.
small update that confirms pretty much what both of us posted:It’s more than that. Producing tens of millions of doses won’t happen overnight (billions when you’re looking worldwide). I imagine they’ll be made available first to providers and the most vulnerable, but it’s going to take time. heck, were having trouble producing test kits and thats much easier.
If everyone had been tested you'd see the same result as S Korea. Under 1%...Looks like I'm the most quoted dude here today!No because the H1N1 only had about a less than 1% mortality rate and we had some idea how to combat it. Plus the symptoms weren't as bad. This isn the same but hey think it is and dont take precautions. We'll see.
I'll believe it when I see it. We've got under 500 out of 350 million dead. China has 4x as many people as we do. Do the numbers on that one.Dude when experts predict that at least 30% of your population will become infected with about 3-4% dead. You sure had better thank your local 24 hour news channel.
China is at a stand still and the supply chain is crushed right now. Fwiw, it 133440 diagnosed with 4961 dead or about 3.71% This aint the flu friend. You have shots, and treatment for the flu and the mortality rate is much, much lower. New scary there are people who have perished that may have had COVID-19 but misdiagnosed with flu. They dont go back and test the dead as the kits are too valuable.
Its sad but sports are sports. Life is more important.
