    ...but they’re getting a “free” education, aren’t they? That is the basis of Barkley’s argument for why the players should be content to allow the NCAA to reap all of the proceeds from using the...

    It's like I said earlier this week (and for some reason the post was pulled), it can take a week or longer for positive test results to manifest following exposure. These positives could well be...

    Brazil is suffering from the same malaise as the U.S. In fact, he’s known as “Trump of the Tropics”. So not only do we have first-hand experience with this kind of “leadership”, we are seeing it...

    So even this board has plunged to the seedy depths of partisan BS? Far left libs? (FYI, “far left” should be hyphenated.) China (i.e., Chinese) are no longer welcome here? WTF? And I don’t care that...

    You and I are in similar boats; although, I have not been formally diagnosed Type II (although my glucose levels have typically been on the high side all of my adult life).

    Back in the day we didn't have disposable diaper wipes. It was toilet paper (also a bit of a commodity these days) and wash cloths. I was one of 7 (2nd oldest), so I learned at an early age how to...

    Most planes are equipped with HEPA filtration, so recirculated air is not likely an issue. However, all you need is one selfish infected p_ick with mild to no symptoms to decide that they feel well...

    I have no direct experience with UPS, but the endless stream of self-promoting emails about what these retail establishments are doing to "protect" us, needs to end. This idea that they are...

    One of the primary goals of social distancing or containment is to slow the spread of the disease so it does not overwhelm the medical community's capacity to treat it. If too many people get sick at...

    I believe most people in decision-making positions realize that it's not just the severity (or lack thereof) with healthy youth, it's that if infected, they become carriers, who will in turn spread...

    So who decides what constitutes exploitation, those being exploited, or those doing the exploiting? Perceptions do create a sense of reality, whether everyone can agree, or not. This issue has been...

    Although I’ve always wanted to, I’ve never been able to join a Zag watch party with the DFW crowd. For one reason or another, it just hasn’t worked out. Such is the case again this year as I am stuck...

    Is this a shot at liberal arts education, misguided as that would be? ;) To the point of Newton, I’d almost be willing to bet that his education would have been in the liberal arts.

    If you had read what I wrote, then this question would have never been asked. To paraphrase, what I said was that a situation that affords Filip more playing time early on against high-caliber...

    Apparently, I'm of a different mindset than that of the lifers, but such is life. Anyway, I tend to see no issue with it. He's a student-athlete, not a pro. And competitive college basketball, while...

    Practice and conference play plays a role in preparing them for the post-season, obviously. I don't recall anyone saying that it was a TOTAL waste of time. But it's not always about who you are...

    There's a key variable being overlooked here. This issue has been beat to death here of late, so I'm not going here intentionally, but the MWC does not currently have a school named "Gonzaga" and all...

    It takes two to tango. Taking two games with bottom-feeders off of the conference schedule does not guarantee a better OOC schedule. To that point, why was our OOC so weak this year? As others have...
