  1. So Brown and Dartmouth at least have integrity. Columbia, conversely, can suck a fat one.
  2. Correct. It’s at the D-II level that you start dealing with partial scholarships.
  3. Let me put it this way: I put in vacation time (which was approved) in order to go to Hawaii the week that Nevada plays in Honolulu. I bought my plane ticket a week ago, and will be purchasing my game ticket as soon as possible.
  4. That’s assuming one of the ones now in testing makes it through. It’s a 12-18 month testing process, meaning it could potentially be years. That’s why I maintain that we can’t hold out for a vaccine. Life must resume despite the risk.
  5. Nevada is finally part of the same conference with UNLV. We may hate each other, but we still belong together in any paradigm.
  6. The marriage of Sandoval and his ex had been over for years before the actual divorce, to the point that they weren’t even living in the same city.
  7. Is there a way to ban Convert specifically from this thread? The relentlessly aggressive toxicity from him is real all of the time (and fine enough in most instances; hence the troll derby), but it would be nice to have a break from it with potentially great things like this.
  8. If you’re talking about a vaccine by the fall, that is an impossibility. There’s no miracle that can change that fact. Hell, stage 3 alone would probably take longer than the amount of time between now and fall, and we might not have even reached that stage. That said, it’s infeasible that life won’t start back up at least by the end of the summer. We can’t shut everything down until a vaccine is developed. It’s just not realistic. You’re talking late summer 2021 AT THE EARLIEST. So yes, I am predicting college football in 2020 with fans in the stands. I’ll even be bold and say a full schedule unless an individual school cancels games.
  9. The “April Fool’s” joke being that they’re really the new unis…
  10. That actually answers some things I was unsure of, and it looks like I might’ve had a few details wrong. Thanks.
  11. I have an aunt and uncle who were on an 18-month adult mission in NYC. Once it became a hot zone and the city started going into lockdown, they basically had under 48 hours to pack and leave. They ended up driving cross-country, and their state-mandated self-quarantine ends Tuesday. Not sports-related, I know, but…that IS what’s happening with some missions right now.
  12. Whatever number is “take it seriously, do what you need to do, don’t panic, don’t be an idiot, and we’ll all get through this soon enough.”
  13. Yes. I think the virus will have run its course by then. Keep in mind: as far as we know, there are no new cases in China for like a week now, and even the Wuhan province is getting back to work.
