  1. If the SEC does it,bye, bye, Nevada @ Arkansas.
  2. My guess is college football will be played, however I could see conferences following some NFL teams and play without fans.. There are still some potential plans for reduced fan seating in some MWC stadiums, but I believe that will change very soon.
  3. There a many here that won't ever forget the BYU pompous money ego grab. I'm over it, if they help attendance and then revert back to their old ways trying to become a P5 school big F--- deal. Bottom I love to hate them, bring them back they bring fans and $$$.
  4. A couple more weeks and who knows what happens by football season assuming there is one.? This might turn into an even worse cluster. At this point I don't see fans in many stadiums either by university social distancing requirements in stadiums or by fan choice.
  5. You are probably correct regarding the P5 and G5 conferences, I was thinking more about some FCS conferences
  6. The first domino has toppled.Who knows what schools and conferences will follow?
  7. It's probably to early to tell what the universities will actually do with fan seating arrangements. According to the news reports, with the virus starting to spike again in some states including Nevada, I fear they may back track their preliminary plans and play the games at Mackay Stadium without fans. In Northern Nevada most events have been canceled that involves people gathering together going into Summer and Fall, 4th of July events, Hot August Nights, the Labor Day Rib cook Off and Reno Air Races, I haven't heard anything about t Street Vibrations yet but my guess is they are doomed as well.At least the restaurants, bars and casinos and businesses are back open to hopefully start a path back to normal.
  8. I'm not so sure that it mattered if it was a Trump or Biden rally that people are comfortable going to an inside venue with this virus still very active. Maybe for Trump or Biden a better option is some type of outdoor event with social distancing.Personally I would stay away from any indoor stadium event right now, be it a rally or concert.
  9. It will be interesting of how they social distance the fans on the west side of Mackay. Some to the east side, a new breed of zonies? Another thread on this board talks about CFB players coming down with the virus. Who knows how much impact from the universities that will have on even putting fans back in the stadium. Way to early to know what happens for sure.
  10. Mackay Stadium at Nevada is looking at 50% or less seating capacity with priority for 2019 season ticket holders.No general admission? They are looking at options to social distance for safety still to be determined.I have no idea of how they enforce that policy, usher police, tape off seats? Anyone not renewing this season because of the situation will continue to have their rights to their same seats in 2021.Any news on how other MWC schools potential plan for stadium seating?
  11. Unofficial Update from Reno, I was watching the morning news,today June 4th, a reporter was at the Nugget Casino in Sparks as the casinos are opening. The General Manager was asked if the Labor Day Rib cook off was still scheduled. he said they are waiting as long as possible until mid June to make the decision, but it's not looking good to hold the event because of social distancing. That's the same time as Wolf Pack football, I get the feeling there will be no fans allowed in the stands as the same social distancing measures may still be in place.
  12. I just don't get why curfews are not put in place at an earlier time. Rep or Dem in charge of your city you would think they would give law enforcement a better chance to at least try to stop the looting and burning. Just look at the news and NYC tonight, it's again being looted. I may be wrong but I think their mayor imposed a 11pm curfew?
  13. My motto used to be in Muss we trust. Now its in Alford I trust, I think Harris will be missed,but Alford knows how to coach and recruit. I would not be surprised to see a graduate transfer with very good talent show up.
  14. Larger groups of people together can potentially cause a spike in the # of virus cases and that probably includes football players and coaching staff.. It will be interesting to see if there is a large spike in cases nationwide after Memorial Day.
  15. Like it or not as fans, we are all stuck in a wait and see mode.
  16. You make a decent point about MWC football attendance" crowds". However schools should be prepared to see even more empty seats than in the past and potential loss of season ticket sales.
  17. Even if the MWC plays football, there still is the stadium crowd in person fan issues that may or may not be allowed to attend games. No in person fans and no TV for G 5 games = potential financial disaster.
  18. I listened to part of Thompson's MWC interview on the Reno news. he seemed concerned that not all states would be open and some coaches and schools would be left out of practice.As far as the Wolf Pack if the Reno Mayor still has things on lock down just rent a part of the driving range at a golf course outside the Reno city limits and bus the team there for practice assuming the NV Governor eases his restrictions. SDSU buses over the border to TJ and gets away from social distancing restrictions in Ca?
  19. Sorry i posted in this topic. For the record I think most in the WHO do a good job. I just think the top of the WHO too close to China connections need to go away. My rant last night was not aimed at the WHO just top brass and I was pissed.. FYI last night I was venting because of the three late night hosts and other Hollywood mouths that always bash Trump. Heck i didn't even vote for Trump in 2016. This time I will and no he's an ass but better than anyone left running on the Dem side.
  20. I'm retired and my wife is still working for a few more years. She's working from home and has my routine been changed. Her yard work routine has changed my whole concept of sweat equity.
  21. Once this is over I hope the WHO, if they can, cleans house with the bulk of the China connection WHO officials eliminated. I'm not anti WHO just against the corruption starting at the top..
  22. Maybe I quit watching right after the three stooges kicked off the show.I support the workers not the Hollywood mouths.
  23. You're correct. My opinion is the head of the WHO is in China pockets and any facts you present probably won't change my mind since this was going on for many years. .
  24. Sorry I was pissed off when I posted. all the major networks an their three marquee late night host aka the three stooges are doing a support the WHO tonight. That doesn't change what a ploitical hit job this is. IMO, the WHO and it's corrupt China ties helped let the virus loose.
