    Regrettably, I'm expecting it within the next day or two. I'm just glad we were able to get last night's game in.

    It's almost a certainty at this point.

    Unattended games is the best we can realistically expect.

    A lot of TV money out there.

    First NCAA player that tests positive will shut the whole thing down though.

    Wait and see I guess.

    Nebraska men’s basketball coach Fred Hoiberg has been fighting an illness and is coaching tonight’s game despite being in obvious discomfort.

    This could be it.

    March madness is done. I think it will be cancelled soon.

    Per Andy Katz:

    Nebraska men’s basketball team is not leaving Bankers Life Arena. They were brought their food outside the locker room. They are not letting people back to the area now. I just walked back to the area here and they told me no one from Nebraska will be made available.

    No, he is not a doctor, just a very concerned fan.

    Let’s all be more gentle.

    No need for personal attacks, Lightning. NCAA is going to be under heavy pressure to cancel the tournament in light of developments over the past 8-12 hours. Next shoe to fall will be cancellation of remaining conference tournaments. Ivy League comes off looking prescient IMO.

    ESPN reporting that all P5 tournaments will be without fans for the remainder of the games

    You beat me to it, kitz. I'm not a doctor, either, but we are definitely in unchartered territory. Reactions by pro sports leagues are setting the stage for the next wave of cancellations.

    I'm very disappointed with my current employer, UPS. There has been absolutely no guidance from management. I work part time in their hub at DFW airport, we process up to 20,000 packages an hour. Volume's picked up by roughly 15% over the past two weeks. I expect that increase to continue an upward path, as more people buy online/stay at home.

    NCAA will see what a dud that plan is, and suspend March Madness for at least a month. Just my $.02.

    I used to work at the usps. They didnt care(management). A guy came in super sick and they said we all should do that. He ended up getting half the post office sick. Others called off sick and rest of us who werent had to do double.

    Cant see how Mark Emert can expose players, staff, family to travel risks given NBA development and now an NCAA coach proceeding to put people at risk knowing he was unwell. I think seasons done. And FWIW, I am a physician.

    We appeared to be short handed today, though I attribute most of that to Spring Break in our area.

    I'm not worried about contracting the virus from a package that passes by on our conveyor belt. What I do worry about are the hundreds of employees that pass through a security checkpoint to enter and exit the hub.
