  1. Great post as usual Mustang. We've both been around a long time and have seen some interesting things.....but nothing like from last March until the present.
  2. Seems to me this is to placate folks. We are 5 minutes across the bridge, but we begin 3 weeks later. KY has about 1/3 the number of football schools as Ohio. Seems that the chance for contacting the virus is secondary. All some school needs is for a staph outbreak... happens somewhere every season. Stay tuned sports fans!! Lol
  3. Can anyone explain the logic of this proposal as it relates to player safety/health due to the Coronavirus? Seems backwards to me unless they are expecting a spike with a shutdown. Glad I'm not a coach....but especially not an administrator. Talked a long time last night with a former Ohio coach of 40+ seasons. We were both speculating on this one.
  4. So does everyone get paid the same? Does the second team punter at OSU get the same money as Justin Fields? Will players be allowed an agent or representative to "negotiate" their deal? Will athletic departments be forced to hire people to monitor the payment, etc.? If they want to pay athletes fine. BIG can of worms. I think this will lead to more schools dropping programs and the Power 5 leaving the NCAA.
  5. Would seem to me that anyone not in uniform or an actual coach or medical personnel and perhaps a few managers should NOT be on sideline. Also heard coaching box is from 10 yard line to 10 yard line! The "get back" coach will become the "where are you?" coach lol.
  6. Have heard Bellevue will NOT begin school year on site but remote instruction. Would seem they could not begin practicing if that's the case.
  7. I'm still trying to figure out how a school district can opt to not be in the building for safety concerns but can sanction practice or play. Seems contradictory to me as a retired teacher/coach. As a long time football official (now retired) I wonder about safety issues? Masks, gloves, water, towels, sideline crews, medical personnel? Who enforces the 60 player limit and chases all the "sidelines"? AD? Principal? Math teacher? WOW!!
  8. Always interests me that a program that prides itself on having 5 or 6 of the best players in basketball coming in each year is now resorting to bringing in grad transfers that other coaches and programs have developed. Travis and Sestina weren't on UK's radar as high schoolers. Any one think the "model" could be tweaked? Maybe 3 all world guys and 2 guys that develop over four seasons? There are no trophies given for NCAA Recruiting Championships. I'm not a huge Calipari or UK fan....but I bet if he had players for four years they would be very good MATURE players.
  9. Don't see that happening. He'll be pretty old and the BBN is like a spurned lover....turn your back on them and there's he// to pay.... FOREVER lol.
  10. No matter what you accomplish as a coach it will pale to that "God Moment" as my pastor calls them. Good things happen to good people.....and at your lowest most difficult time God provided for you....and it helped you keep on keeping on!! The people you teach, coach, and interact with daily are fortunate to have you as part of their lives!!
  11. The Dayton sub-regional(First 4) has always had outstanding attendance. The NCAA likes the venue and apparently has a good relationship with management of facility. When we hosted DII Elite 8 at NKU the NCAA was very happy.....but we moved to DI after that and lost our hosting for the next season.
  12. I would say some of your law enforcement buddies from days gone by will have an interesting weekend lol.
  13. Especially with no Big Blue Nation in the stands! Think they might be in play in game in Dayton, or is that only for teams that were not conference/tournament champions?
  14. Sumo I truly appreciate the class you exhibited with your post. It's a shame more fans don't behave that way! Two good teams. Wish they could both be in the NCAA tournament!!
  15. That Imhoff led team defeated Cincinnati (Oscar Robertson) and West Virginia (Jerry West) the previous year to win it. Pete Newell also served as the Olympic Team coach in 1960 I believe.
