    It's not just about where we are now. And yes deaths have been minimal. But with this being transmitted so easily and the long incubation period, if people had just been moving about freely, there would have been many more cases, overwhelming the system, which then makes treatment for non virus cases more difficult too. As a country, the virus is now the number three killer behind heart disease and cancer. And that's just in 2 months, with...

    Superintedent made his choice to move on. No need to release a statement a month later, right after the ex-coach finds another job.

    Many lenders are offering a 3 month suspension with no late fees, and just tacking the 3 payments onto the end of the loan. Student loans have also been suspended with no penalty. Like you say, though, you need to ask if you need help. Sooner than later.

    Does it really seem high? We are currently at 4k and we aren't anywhere near the peak. The problem is it looks like many people who carry it, don't know they have it, as it takes a couple weeks for it to kick in. We didn't get serious about quarantining until barely 2 weeks ago. And there are still some places that aren't on board. Florida is refusing to follow the lead, and with their older population, it could be a disaster down there. ...

    We are looking at possible 30% unemployment, with the entertainment, restaurant, and travel related industries possibly destroyed. Think about Las Vegas for example. That whole economy depends on travel and the casinos. The stimulus is going to just be enough to get through April/early May (assuming it lands in 3 weeks like they are promising). People are going to be right back in the hole 30-45 days later. It's pretty clear this isn't...

    Well, they haven't said cancelled yet. So while it's tough, coaches have to stay positive, and prepare as if things will get started again. Those that do, will be in the best position if the season does resume.

    I don't really see all that much of a difference between the two statements, outside of the mention that Florida may extend the season out to 6/30. Doesn't change any of the uncertainity with the situation.

    Host schools normally pay for the officials. I'd imagine the KHSAA pays for the tournament/Championship officials.

    $3.2 million in 2015. Probably has gone up since then. Roughly 1/2 their total expenses are Admin Costs. I found an annual report from 2007/2008 which gives a little insight into what their revenues look like vs expenses. https://khsaa.org/annualmeeting/20082009/khsaaannualreport2008.pdf

    Aside from getting some fried chicken from Kroger, we have not done any take out since hunkering down. As a guy who eats out everyday for lunch normally, it's been a big change. Some of it is an effort to cut out unnecessary spending, some is just trying to avoid contact with people.

    I really wonder how many will take advantage of the extra year, especially for those that will graduate in the spring. The way I'm reading it, schools can pull some of the aid from those students taking advantage of the extra year, which is almost certainly going to happen at many schools, especially smaller schools whose programs aren't fully funded, and in sports where full athletic free rides are rarely given. I'd have to think there will...

    I think there's a strong chance there will be no further athletic activity through the end of the dead regular dead period. If we hit the peak by May as expected, and we don't have any further set backs, I think there's a strong chance everything get started as normal. However, there should at least be a plan in place should this not resolve quickly.

    Without the media, we wouldnít have any idea what is going. And while the media may have contributed to some of the panic, I canít imagine the fear, and panic that would result from us not knowing anything at all. Yes, media is a business. But itís a much scarier society without the media.

    I've said this before, but I was at this game. A few friends and I took the 40 minute drive from West Chester, PA to Philly, and bought scalped tickets for $25. Never thought for a minute I'd end up living in Kentucky at that time, or the impact this game had on this area.

    The thing is, it's clear based on looking at how this thing has spread in Italy, Spain, and places like New York, that we aren't wrong. The only way we look stupid is by going normally about our business.

    So apparently, you are ok and willing to sacrifice a few (and potentially many) lives for a few extra weeks of fun. In the short term, yes things would have been ok. But the long term effect of not shutting things down early, could have had huge negative ramifications. I can deal with losing some money. I can deal with missing sports. I cannot deal as well with people I know, or even myself getting sick and possibly dying. The method of...

    All you have to do is look at Italy. Or if you’d like to stay closer to home, New York. Even if it’s not killing at a high rate, it’s clear this is a huge strain on resources. It’s Spreading even with the measures we’ve taken. Just imagine what things would have been like had we not shut things down. There’s no question lives were saved and the willingness to trade those lives and resources for “two weeks we will never get back” is selfish...

    The stimulus package I'm sure has a lot to do with it, as there is still negative news on the virus front with the issues in NY, and the growing issue in NOLA, which is starting to look like another area that is going to be hit really hard. These next two to 3 weeks will be big. If things can stabilize, we might start to see growth accelerate. I've been staying in the market, making my normal weekly small buys.

    My mother is a pharm tech at Walmart, and she said they are installing Plexiglass at her pharmacy. Which in hindsight, makes me wonder why that wasn't more common to begin with? Also just found my nephew, who is in the army, was just diagnosed. He's 22, and healthy, and doing fine.

    I have a few friends around my age (45-55) that are still hold the belief that we shouldn't be shutting down because this is just a cold, and the flu kills way more people. At this point if people don't believe, I'm not sure what can be done to make them believe.

    Last I saw, is the NY is at the point where there are telling people to assume they have it now. They are only testing if you are hospitalized and a diagnosis is necessary for your care. So if your symptoms are mild, stay home. You can find the NY disease guide here Coronavirus Disease 219 (COVID-19) - NYC Health. Here is their testing "requirements" It would seem they aren't necessarily testing more, as unlimited testing would...

    Many football players are deep into conditioning and lifting in the offseason. You can't do that if you're playing soccer. Track is the natural offseason fit for most serious football players, and in schools that have it, Lacrosse is where a lot of football players are ending up. I just don't see football players gravitating toward soccer at all.
