    I’ve said it before, but the biggest recruiting factor for the Zags moving forward will be NBA success of their alum. That means a great deal to high level HS players. Congrats to Brandon and Rui....

    The cost and logistics of any sort of bubble would be staggering. It's not just about isolating players, which is hard enough when they aren't being paid and have academic and family...

    You are right, and that was poorly stated on my part. My apologies. I should have said that creating a bubble like you talked about would take similar amounts of effort, albeit in a different form. ...

    Hoops is a winter sport, sure. But creating the type of bubble the OP is talking about took months of planning for 22 teams, with a centralized governing body, in one city, with adult professional...

    It's not happening.

    I've believed this for about 2-3 months, and my glimmer of hope has now disappeared with multiple college FB conferences cancelling their season. There is simply no way to...

    I didn't mean to suggest his exit was the source of disdain. "Season long tantrums" is absolute hyperbole, though. He had his moments, sure, but he was the WCC player of the year for a reason. I...

    Really disappointing to read this thread. A guy travels over 5,000 miles to come and play basketball for Gonzaga, and from a handful of bad moments on TV gets thrown under the bus the minute he...

    I keep going back to this: The NBA, with only 22 teams, one location, a centralized commissioner, and millionaire adult professionals, is barely holding together a plan to play a brief tournament.

    If there is a season, it's likely going to look quite different. Limited fans, some changes and restrictions with travel, and players probably more quarantined. Maybe fewer practices, maybe just...

    Thank you. I've never heard this argument fully fleshed out. If you just isolate the "elderly and vulnerable" you first have to define those groups. What age are we talking about? Does this...

    I wish I had more optimism. I just canít see it. This isnít really about how worrisome (or not) one thinks COVID-19 is as a public health threat. Itís just the implausible scenario in which 347 D1...
