  1. I get the sentiment, but what to do about all the incoming players?
  2. Yes proximity to an infectious person and breathing in the virus can make you catch it. Having sporting events with no or very limited spectators is a reasonable precaution. This is mostly transmitted through breathing it in, not as much from touching your face. Agreed on authorities (here and abroad) trying to strike the right balance in messaging to prepare people without causing a panic. Not an easy balance to achieve of course and once panic starts it’s probably more infectious than COVID-19.
  3. Mortality outside of China has shown to be fairly consistent so far. I wouldn’t bet against China obfuscating the truth, but genetic studies of the virus suggest this version is a natural mutation that occurred in October or November last year. China being a lying authoritarian regime probably didn’t help, but this disease appears to be pretty infectious so it’s also likely that wouldn’t have mattered much anyway. I highly recommend listening to the Joe Rogan podcast with Michael Osterholm.
  4. No science that I’m aware of yet to indicate that. Other Coronaviruses are NOT affected by heat (MERS, for example). It’s too early to tell about this particular virus, but we shouldn’t count on summer to help us.
  5. Meh, it’s a bit of both. Both extremes are silly. COVID-19 is much more lethal than the usual seasonal flu, but the ‘cancel everything so it looks like are are doing something’ is also silly. It looks like you mostly catch this disease from breathing, unless you’re planning on stopping that you are kind of hosed. We really can’t shut down everything everywhere for months or years until a vaccine is tested and ready. COVID-19 will likely get worse in terms of death totals. It’s scary because it’s so new, but it’s possible that this could end up killing less people than other causes o
  6. IN AZKABAN! Sorry, nerd joke just came out.
  7. Did you rescind ‘the board may panic’ directive? If so, does this tweet allow panic mode to be reengaged?
  8. How are you using Benford for this argument?! Wren let him coach out every game on his contract and then fed some BS line about how players can get in trouble after in season coaching changes...which was also total BS (felony charges). If anything Wren’s total inaction on Benford is evidence he will do nothing.
  9. Region 1 travel is quite often loooong distance, especially after the first round. Decatur might choose to feel fortunate for the long drives as that keeps them out of the murderers row of region 2...
  10. Are you and @El Paso Eagle throwing punches? If not then maybe you're just having a vehement disagreement...
  11. Boedeker was trash. Ben Baby moved up in the world (twice). Vito is really pretty good. High school coverage by Steve and Reece is good as well. I don’t think the DRC is selling only online subscriptions to UNT coverage so their total package is worth considering.
  12. Journalism’s long slow death is about 50/50 societal change/it’s own undoing.
  13. Meh, the quality of writing overall (specifically talking mostly about non-sports articles) has been declining at the DRC for some time now.
