    Ivy League posters on another site were saying that Harvard took the lead on all of this and that the tail wagged the dog. Also, if Harvard ever wanted to change the no playoff rule for football that it would change. Reminds me of Texas in the Big 12...........

        Yale has followed Harvard and forfeited in hockey. Cornell & Princeton are still in.

        Yes, Yale followed Harvard in withdrawing from hockey. Reseeding is being done. Cornell and Princeton are still in.

        • Can't find the NBA thread- but the Jazz-Thunder game has just been postponed. No reason given why, but the crowd there is really ticked.

          "Jazz-Thunder game has officially been postponed. Fans have been asked to leave Chesapeake Energy Arena."

            Ahh.

            If I went to Harvard then I might have learned how to fact check what I read on Twitter, haha.

              • So games in tournament won't have fans. Can you imagine that new dome empty in the Final Four in Atlanta? They should just move it to a gym for site lines and Chic-fil-a won't be open for the Final Four.

                  I heard Seattle radio talking about this and the KingCo High School conference thinking of doing the same. What they brought up, what about the seniors that will never play sports again and not getting a senior day?

                    We had one for football- our basketball coach was a dick, we didn't have one for that. Never had one for baseball or track. Not in my top 100 things to be concerned about during my sports career.

                      Just a depressing reminder that it’s almost over.

                        What i don't understand is what makes COVID 19 different from the other pandemic scares we go through every couple of years. Ebola, Zika, SARS, Bird Flu... the only one to pan out was H1N1 and while it royally sucked to be glued to the coach for a few days, it didn't end up being that bad overall.
                        Now if Ebola shows up in this country I will take notice. So far deaths on this one are dwarfed by typical mortality of seasonal flu but it is considerably harder on elderly. My understanding is death rate is about 1% overall pretty much, but not totally, isolated to elderly and other compromised. Why is this one so hyped? I think a lot of it is politics and media hype and then you to get mob mentality, businesses and government make drastic decisions, stock market tanks and it becomes self feeding. Now we shut travel from Europe. I suppose that will get chastised and God only knows if the southern border Is completely shut down. How will the market react tomorrow? You would think it would drop more over the Europe thing and affect on economy but who knows when it comes to the stock market? Now I just hear Tom Hanks and his wife have it and so maybe does a Utah Jazz player. NBA suspending and maybe cancelling rest of season. This deal is going totally viral.

                        • Hoiberg escorted off the court in the Nebraska game. No word as to what he is sick with, but I read security started to clear the area.

                          If it's COVID 19, I wouldn't be surprised if the NCAA shuts down the tournament.

                            Granted I'm not that old, but I've never seen such societal unrest. The closest thing I can compare this too is 9/11. I get it's a very serious issue and should be taken seriously, but the amount of sheer hysteria is baffling to me. I feel like I've seen this movie before.

                            COVID 19 was affecting my place of work when it was still fairly localized to China, so I'd kept an eye on it for the past couple months. It didn't really affect what I do, but it was interesting to see how it was affecting everything. I feel like we went from talking about it to shutting down society in a very, very short period of time.

                            • The game ended a while ago and Nebraska has not been allowed to leave their locker room. They are under quarantine. It hasn't yet been reported what the coach was sick with.

                              If he does have coronavirus, that's a wrap on the NCAA tournament.

                              It also looks like the Huskers had two football players on the roster tonight.

                                Yes, the Huskers left two players at home when they played the Gophers on Sunday. Sounded like disciplinary reasons. So they needed some bodies.
