    Buried my best buddy last year. One of the hardest things I’ve ever done. I feel for you brother.

    Yeah, I understand the reasoning. Flatten the curve and all that but when people are still vacationing (videos can be seen of packed beaches in Florida) hurting people such as yourself as well as not achieving the ultimate goal is just an absolute atrocity.

    ****ing terrible man, I'm sorry. We had to put down our 14 year old Lab last weekend. Absolutely brutal, no way around it.

    You certainly don’t have to. We’ll be alright. But if know someone in Cincinnati and want to buy them a gift, the link is below.

    if the new figures are accurate this could run its course thru April 14th and at the latest June 14th. not sure how set you are. but I am hoping for April 14th as I am already going nutzoid. being confined to the house even though its supposed to be for my own good.

    Stay safe out there Gil. Maybe waste some time looking at other teams recruiting rankings.

    right now just following players in the transfer portal. Fran does not have room for one but I do like to see who is transferring from which schools and to who.

    it is for this reason where putting out the way to early top 25 means little to nothing,

    rosters are not set in stone yet.

    True or false MSU and Maryland were the only two legit national title contenders from the B1G if we had a tourney?

    If Texas Tech and UVA could make a title game last year, I think there's about 20 teams that could have made it this year. It was wide open.

    false as the BT was tough from #1 thru #12 but none were above the rest to be considered a NT contender

    TT was a SR dominated team, UVA got whar was labeled the weakest Bracket, but they still had to beat the teams along the way to reach the FF.

    each year is different and a team has to get hot at the right time to win it all. plus a couple breaks along the way.

    Iowa wasn't included in the 20 teams. You just missed out at #21.

    Michigan State's One Shining Moment. Good season. Very tough to see it end this way.

    Five million restaurant workers in NYC will not be able to make rent in 2 weeks. Wall st got 1.25 trillion 2 days ago. When do the people get some relief?

    Agreed. Time for the government to bailout the working class people. If big banks get stimulus, then wtf.

    Things Ive heard are adults that make under 60k will be eligible for possible cash assistance.

    Yep, that's what is so frustrating. They tell me I can apply for a small business loan and go deeper in debt but when many businesses like mine go under, they will just bail out the banks that loaned them money. If you order a stop to a businesses ability to earn revenue, you should do something for them....not the banks.

    I know none of us agree on almost anything, but we are a country of people not businesses or corporations. Enough already. Do we as a nation have the moral courage to do the right thing no matter how we vote or despite the current paralyzed leadership? Wall st gets its cash before hospitals get tests. Are we really that effing stupid and selfish?

    I have met a lot of people in the food/bar industry here in Reno. Very sad seeing the struggle and so quickly.

    Reno "shut down" starting today at 10:00am and they want everything not essential closed by 5:00pm on Friday. Casinos included.

    I propose our current leaders wake the fucx up and lead. I am not in a position to know hot spots, true test/vaccine numbers/cdc projections or the economic impact that 2-16 weeks of total quarantine will cause. I can certainly imagine our economy will be shattered, along with millions sick dying and flat broke.

    All political partisanship must be stopped. We are at war. That includes me. I pray Pres Trump is able to lead us now. All of us.

    Don’t think this has anything to do with selfishness or stupidity. It seems to me that this thing is changing by the minute and the answer is a bit more complex than you’re alluding to.

    For as bad as they looked mid-season, they were really starting to come together the last 4 games. I was getting excited for a post season run

    OSU close to getting Seth Towns, 6-7 wing from Harvard. Grad transfer, 2 yrs left. Excellent player and potential until hurt. Many teams interested.

    Nothing better than people, who have no ****ing clue (myself included) what an AD does, while they continue to bitch about who will get the AD job.

    Indiana will have a new hire this week. Either former IU basketball player Chris Reynolds or Scott Dolson who was a basketball manager and has been involved with the university for a very long time.

    Edit: Its Dolson. That happened quickly

    Literally have no idea and don’t care until I see a couple of years. AD has to have support from the admin and Fred Glass did a pretty damn good job with an admin who doesn’t care about sports
