    Smile With PAC-12 playing '20-'21 b-ball after all, with the same start date as the WCC,...

    ...can we somehow get UW and Arizona to our house as originally scheduled? Or would a better scenario be to bump those games to next year (at GU) with a likely packed & rabid MAC? Kind of like them playing before our fans, but hate not playing them this year.




    :]
    Yeah, we're "The Champs," uh-huh!

    Hopefully we can play them this year. Even without fans, the Joke-12 and the WCC can still have a viable college basketball season.

    I am kind of hoping that Gonzaga can work out a couple more games in the Orlando bubble while they are there. The kids will be in a good environment, they can use remote learning (which I think they may be doing at least partially now), and they could get a couple other marquee games. We know they have the Baylor matchup (likely there), the multi team event, and the one game showcase already.

    Would prefer to pick up the extra games in the Orlando bubble and bump the Pac games to next year when we can see them in person and get the home crowd to fire up the team.

    I don’t know if this is considered a forbidden form of Covid-19 commentary, but I hope that they start listing cycle threshold on these tests that they are proposing in the NCAA. They are proposing testing 3 times a week and any positive test would result in a 14-day quarantine for the entire team. The problem with this is that these tests are so sensitive that they can pick up dead virus RNA fragments from prior infection for a very long time, or could be positive for a sub-infectious level of virus in someone who could fight it off without ever developing symptoms.

    JP, the pac 12 is doing the Quidel Sofia antigen testing, not PCR. It only picks up at viral levels that are contagious. Same test our practice has been using for 3 months. We have detected 8 positives in 1500 tests, screening all patients before allowing entry to our endoscopy center.

    That's great news for multiple reasons. Thanks.

    Agreed.
    It's not funny.
