    I'm young, physically active, with zero pre-existing conditions. Ditto for my wife. My kids are young enough that they would almost certainly be asymptomatic. For these reasons I'm not scared about contracting the virus. I just happen to be a decent human being who empathizes with those who aren't in as good of a situation to combat the virus. And frankly, I'm embarrassed that we are the only developed country that hasn't figured out how to slow this thing down. We've politicized every possible step of our COVID response, which is ludicrous. The virus doesn't discriminate between Republican and Democrat. And I'm a Republican saying that. Glad you're wearing a mask in public. Most people I've come across that make your arguments refuse to wear one. Masks aren't going to 100% stop this thing, since they have varying degrees of efficacy. But they absolutely help when worn by the vast majority of the population, which is a big part of why Asia and Europe are in such better shape than us despite having higher population density, worse access to health care, and more public transit (all things that contribute to the spread).

    Death rates spiked this week, and they are likely going to keep going up as more health care facilities operate at peak capacity. Multiple cities in Arizona and Texas have full morgues right now. Miami has less than 5% of all hospital beds available city-wide. Which again, is the problem with people who hold your "I won't believe it's a problem until everyone is dead" mentality because you can't base preventative actions on trailing statistics. On top of that, I still don't understand the willful ignorance required to ignore the residual health problems (and secondary effects, due to lack of hospital capacity) and solely focus on deaths.

    OWH article

    Another Omaha World Hearld article in today's paper. Mostly about Cain, and her perspective on team. She said it pretty plainly, poor chemistry developed on last years team....some weren't happy with playing time, etc. Didn't go into details really, but it isn't hard to figure out. She cleared the air essentially, But she's very happy with the "new" team. All the girls are getting along fine and it's refreshing to have everyone on the same page. With a common goal to improve the team, and work together. So it just may well be a fun team again. Like every season, it will be fun to watch....there will be lots of changes and newbies to blend into a working tram. Maybe more so than some years.... but Cain seems to be pretty happy about what's happening. She taking a new leadership role and seems to enjoy it.

    Union Omaha gets its first goal and first ever win for the history books. And against the reigning champion of 2019. FWIW, Union Omaha is in League One (below USL Championship and MLS in the US soccer league system).

    That guy lacked elite top-end speed. And he gave Kansas State a 2-0 lead by stepping back into the end zone. And almost lost 15 yards one time against UCLA on a carry from the 2. But, I guess, 4780 yards does qualify as OK.

    Houston has a waiting list for ICU beds. Odessa hospitals are turning patients away. San Antonio is ordering refrigerator trucks to store bodies because they're out of room at the morgues. This is the problem with waiting to address a public health crisis until you're past the point of no return, and the problem with basing your opinion of a pandemic's severity exclusively on a trailing statistic (mortality rate). Texas did it, and now they are suffering the consequences.

    I know Rivals and 247 keep calling him one, but Hunter isn't a natural point guard. You want that guy focusing on getting buckets, and he's grown enough to be just fine at the two. I'd be surprised if Wisconsin was a significant threat to land him, but they'd have no problems playing Chucky and Hunter together, and Chucky certainly isn't going to stop recruiting him (heck, he used some of his post-championship press conference to try to recruit Hunter to play with him this summer).

    Per Sam, OWH... One of the top girl’s basketball scorers in the state of Minnesota committed to Nebraska’s 2022 class on Wednesday. Chanhassen guard Callin Hake, who averaged 22.2 points per game last season as a sophomore and 20.4 points per game as a freshman, announced on Twitter she was committing to Nebraska. She has two more seasons of high school basketball to play, and she’s the first known commit for NU’s 2022 class. The 5-foot-9 guard will join the team just as several guards, including Sam Haiby, would be graduating. NU has three guards 0151 Kendall Moriarty, Kendall Coley and Alison Weidner — set to sign in the 2021 class.

    A lot of that depends who else is on the court. If Banton needs to be a primary scorer, I think we'll have issues. To me I'd think of him on this team as sort of the Haanif Cheatham where he's getting you easy buckets (with his length and movement as opposed to blazing speed) and someone who is probably a plus on defense. I keep looking at this team and it really feels like the most important question is whether or not we can depend on Teddy Allen to average 20+ a game. If you have this you can structure the rest of the team around this.

    A very good reason to worry about the spread in addition to the death rate is because spread is going to be part of the equation to determine if college sports will occur. https://www.ncaa.org/sport-science-institute/resocialization-collegiate-sport-developing-standards-practice-and-competition Wear and encourage people to wear a mask when going to indoor public places. Try and stay outside if you don't want to wear a mask. It's been generally proven out that outside gatherings are not contributing highly to the spread.

    Yvan was one of the brightest spots on the 2019-20 squad, particularly at only 17 years of age. He seems to be improving his physique to become a legit B1G dude, and I couldn't be more excited to see how much he brings to the table for the upcoming season. With several other taller players on the team in 2020-21, it could provide the ability to mix-and-match much better based on opponents' personnel as opposed to sticking Yvan on the "tall guy"!

    Assuming they play ...

    1. Even though the roster was turned over again the guys that were added this year were more handpicked as opposed to a last-minute fire sale type situation last spring. You have multiple guys that redshirted together so there will be more cohesion. You also have multiple guys coming in with plenty of division one power five level experience. Those things weren’t evident last year. On top of that you have a much more complete and well rounded roster. you’re longer, you’re taller, you’re more skilled, you’re more experienced. 2. How much better is up in the air. I think a lot of that depends on what type of season you have. Obviously with the virus that puts the non-con schedule in jeopardy. We need that to build cohesiveness amongst the new players. Jumping right in to conference play is not a good thing for a brand new team even if it is significantly more talented. With that being said assuming a full schedule is played, I fully expect an NIT type team. I’m not gonna come out and say we’re gonna win 25 games and go to the NCAA tournament. But I do think we will be significantly better. That means 2 to 3 more wins in the nonconference as well as the fact we will have more confidence heading into the difficult parts off conference play,to the extent that we won’t give up and quit when things start trending the wrong direction. That is assuming of course that Mcgowans is eligible. 3. As far as filling a Hoiberg roster I think we’re seeing it. You’re seeing a mix of high school, transfers and jucos. I think inevitably high school players will become more prevailant, but in the meantime while he’s building his roster transfers will have a heavier impact early on to achieve success and build a culture. 4. The biggest question I have Right now is our ability to shoot from the outside consistently. I think we will be significantly better in the paint through experience and added bodies. I think we have natural scores in Benton and Allen. But I don’t see a pure shooter from the outside yet. I think we have good shooters and guys who can make shots but not sure we have a pure shooter on the roster currently. Or at least one that is eligible.

    It is clear McCabe does not feel NE is currently winning enough. Also sometimes you just do not click with a staff. Whichever it is Amy and her staff need to gets things turned around. I hope they can do it. Iowa has had some good luck lately. Hopefully it's time for that to change.

    I doubt the lack of WBB information, does the program any good. Is it a reflection of a staff that doesn't share much? Low priority of those covering the program? Perceived lack of interest by fan base? With the lack of live sports action for months, I'm confused why recruiting coverage isn't more prevalent. Hard to generate interest in a vacuum.

    fwiw, talking to a guy that knows one of SD sportswriters. brought up 3 names: (1) Bella Swedlund he heard her offers are rising fast. well over 20 but didn't know how many of those might be P5. (2) Hannah Ronsiek from Sioux Falls O'Gorman. she is getting a lot of attention also. her sister (Emma) is at Creighton and there is some mention she may join her---however, he stated some are saying she may want to pave her own way. (3) the gal from Sioux Falls Washington (Ndjakalenga Mwenentanda). arguably, one of SD's most athletic recruits in some time. stated the "buzz" on her has been kinda quiet for whatever reason. her mother played at Old Dominion and professionally. at one time, there were rumors she would probably head south for the warmer weather---but, he said those were just "rumors". he said a number of area P5 schools have shown interest not to mention others nationally.

    OT: Live Sports Are Back!

    MLS has come a very long ways. A league that was the laughing stock of paying for near-retired international athletes, now to building a very solid pipeline for South American and CONCACAF athletes to build their talent and get traded to European clubs for big money. Miggy Almiron came from Paraguay, played in the MLS, then was transferred to Newcastle for $24M. Tyler Adams came from the Red Bulls academy and transferred to Leipzig for $3M with a 33% sell-on fee which will pay massive dividends. Alphonso Davies was transferred to Bayern for $13.5M with a potential $8.5M in bonuses. All three of those transfers occurred in 2019, alone. So a handful of that talent you're starting to watch in the European leagues are either US-based talent or has been going through the MLS pipeline. Also Liga MX (Mexican soccer) has always been the top league in the western hemisphere, but MLS is very quickly overtaking the reigns. Note the recent commentary from owners and players in the league about losing the battle to MLS.

    she is a jewel. I saw her play a few times this year - and all three of her games at the state tourney. In my non-pro opinion she, along with JH, JS and MI of course, will go down as one of the four best girl's hoopsters this state has ever produced. She looked to me to have it all .... physical structure, composure, reflexes & body control, court movement, teamwork, and endurance. Of all those, i would stress composure. She just looks as tho she is totally in control of what happens in the lane. It is a quiet confidence that she will dictate what happens. And she can back it up. IMO, on athletic ability, she belongs in a P5 conference. But i am sure she has her reasons for having chosen SoDak and i hope everyone respects her choice

    I'm not here for a big debate, nor do I think there's a clear right or wrong answer in these uncertain times; there's still so much to learn. But there is one thing that I do want to add to your point on simply looking at the death rate. More about that in a minute. Based on what I've read about previous pandemics, patterns, and behaviors of the virus (no, I'm not an expert at all; I encourage you to read up on it as well) this pandemic will be defined by the number of deaths that result. And at this point in time the number of tests really don't mean anything other than to help with contact tracing, which we've failed miserably at. Part of that is just due in part with the way our freedoms and protections are set up in this country versus some other countries who have been very successful at it. I've also seen that previous pandemics saw the worst of it in the first six months and the virus itself lasted a couple of years. But back to my point on deaths. Although the percentage may be low for actual deaths, I have personally started to hear from friends, and have started to see more and more studies being published, that a large majority of people who have had COVID are still exhibiting symptoms 60+ days after contracting it. Whether that's losing sense of taste and/or smell that entire time, having major migraines, seizures, etc. And there's also studies out there on previous SARS outbreaks with this being a big area of focus. I'm not saying I'm bought into it at this moment, but the growing number of empirical research on the topic is becoming more pronounced. So when you start talking about long term respiratory effects, and long term brain effects, I'm going to take more precautions beyond "the death rate is low" until more research comes out debunking that. https://www.forbes.com/sites/victoriaforster/2020/07/08/brain-damage-and-hallucinations-associated-with-even-mild-covid-19-coronavirus-infection/
