Re: How will Covid-19 affect the season?

For what its worth, I am not certain we see Bradley playing in front of crowds for awhile, so I don't think its something I will be too concerned about. Just so we're all clear here, Bradley can probably cobble together an athletic department budget without having fans in attendance this year. I th...

Re: How will Covid-19 affect the season?

I’d let the entire venue spit in my mouth at a BU final 4 appearance. Kind of disgusting :gagl , but I think I'd be in line right next to you. :shock: I genuinely like you boys, but I'm gonna take a hard pass on any and all of that. It was enough for me realizing several days later that I was huggi...

Re: TAS and Squirrel Re-Construct DI

La Salle has cut 7 programs: baseball softball volleyball men's tennis women's tennis men's swimming & diving men's water polo Which, considering volleyball is on the list, it is perhaps surprising that they are still at 18 varsity sports (from 25), as volleyball seems pretty core. Schools like La ...

Re: Doc Rivers

Doc reminds me of Doug Collins. They both can pull 25-30 win talent to 42-40, but they can also pull 60 win talent to 45-37. Doc at least won the title with 3 hall of famers in Boston, but only got 1 title out of the group.

Re: Season starts November 25th

Washington DC for the paradise jam. Apparently they were looking for a location that was the exact opposite of Paradise. Yuck. Do you know if fans will be allowed at this tournament? DC is only a 5-6 hour drive from me. It probably depends which locale of the DC area it winds up in. You have 3 diff...

Re: WSCR Dan McNeil Gone...Again!

All of this aside, the more I think about it, I am wondering if McNeil should have been fired? Suspended - yes. Again, we can all agree he should not have said comment. It was wrong. But he did remove it within thirty minutes, apparently realizing it was wrong. He didn't comment on the woman's phys...

Re: Season starts November 25th

I wonder if teams will have bigger practice squads/more walk-ons in order to be prepared for multiple player COVID outbreaks during the season? Has the NCAA made any recommendations to teams on how to handle this scenario? That’s a double edged sword. I don’t know the right answer but the pessimist...

Re: WSCR Dan McNeil Gone...Again!

The Score is toast folks. The whole station sounds like a weekend and holiday broadcast from years past. Bernstein is washed - succumbed to his super-wokeness. Parkins is ok, but skewed a little to Bernstein. Holmes is a snoozefest.

Re: How will Covid-19 affect the season?

I would assume the vast majority of schools would be against it as well. The majority of coaches have bonuses or triggers based on NCAA tournament appearances. How do you pay out some dude that gets *** pounded by Duke as the #350 seed?

Re: How will Covid-19 affect the season?

Players might be safer with sports and everything structured than without sports and left on their own. I read today where Wake Forest is spending $75,000/week to test their athletes twice each week. Once the football season starts the ACC is also requiring a third gameday test onsite. That's how i...

Honest question... Would Delany have done things any differently if he were still in charge? Jim Delany was arguably the most powerful guy in the NCAA.
