Mayor of Los Angeles just said in his daily press conference to "not expect any sporting events for the remainder of the year."


No borders for the virus.  Just ask the residents of South Dakota. 

Be safe!  Be smart!!  Be thoughtful!!!

Unless a vaccine and testing becomes common place , I believe there will be no school and  no "sport" of any kind.  

Some of the country's major sporting events like the Indy 500 have been moved to August and the Kentucky Derby to September. If they don't take place, would be another key indicator.

There is beginning to be a lot of information about employer duty of care and legal ramifications of known risks. Venue liability would have to be considered also. Insurance?

If classes are online only in the fall does that mean Garrett Sturtz doesn’t have to pay room and board and we can use that third scholarship :D

Illinois has only a Governor of Cook County.  Downstate Illinois counties are not currently recognized.   Outside of having to visit Springfield for his inauguration, I  am not sure he has left Cook County.

I'm with McB, its hard to understand how a state with 4x the population only projects to have 2x as many deaths with the only discernable difference between the two states is that one took action quicker than the other.  How is that at all possible?

Plus it shows Illinois has passed their peak resource date and IA's peak is May 5th. CRAZY!

Fact is, I'm pretty sure I had hang overs worse than the Corona-virus back in the day. At some point, IMO, we must open everything back up. As I heard someone say, "...  trying to burn down the village to save it is foolish. That’s a cold, hard truth. Yes, we shut down, but the shutdown did not stop the spread of the virus. I wish it had. But it’s too late for that.”  Is it really too late? I'm all about a couple more weeks if that is going to make a big difference. After that, phick it, ... the elderly, those with immunity issues, and hot spots need to handled. I think that really is the cold hard truth.

Your analogy of burning down a village to save it is awful.  Maybe worse than Kale Abrahamson's attitude while at Drake.  We are not setting fire to the United States we are simply limiting social contact in one of the most transmittable diseases of the last 80 years.  Also by saying "phick it" really is not a pro-life stance if we are putting money for sports team owners ahead of the health of United States citizens. But like they say to each their own.

Edit: I hope I'm wrong and this does "magically" go away

That's fair, free country and all. I guess we'll agree to disagree.

Iowa’s peak is coming later than Illinois’ because the virus started spreading in Illinois a couple weeks before it hit Iowa.

The lockdown wasn’t specifically to STOP the spread of the virus; it’s too late for that. It was meant to SLOW the spread. Has it been effective at that? Nobody knows, because we don’t know how much worse it would have been without these measures. I’m thinking it’s helped at least somewhat.

Having said that, I’m not in favor of continuing it long term (and I’m in the “high risk” demographic)

What would you consider long-term? If we stop what we're currently doing too early, we're undo a lot of the good we've done by helping slow the spread. I'm not a big fan of doing it long term either but if it helps others who are high risk, I'm OK with the sacrifice. The problem is, we don't really know how long "long term" is at this point. 

Also McBulldog, it's going to have to go a couple more weeks, especially if you consider the link you sent that I am too dumb to understand. 

Also also, I mean, I guess we could open up the economy in the next few weeks but we'd wipe out 80% of Drake's fan base ;)

Honest question on to ponder:  If President Maxwell was here would he use the virus as an excuse to cut football?  I obviously don't think it should be cut.  Just a curious what if.

The cost of putting a non-revenue sport in mothballs would be the coaches' salaries.  That's most of it, I think.

Wouldn't make any sense to formally cut a program, if the school wants to continue with it sometime down the road.  I don't care what Maxwell might have thought 20 years ago.

Related question:  does Drake athletics have any insurance against having to cease activities as the result of a government order?**  (I'm guessing the State of Iowa considers football games non-essential)


**-example:  2020 Big East men's basketball tournament.

I have no idea that for sure is a communication director question.  I would lean no.  I do think given the current situation of Iowa government there could be a (slight)  possibility of ruling it essential.  But I find this hard to imagine if they have a game at Kinnick and the slight possibility of people getting sick and overcrowding the hospital right next to stadium.  That would be PR nightmare 100x.  Obviously it will be interesting how all of this transpires but to say the least the way college sports are will be among the most interesting
