  1. Hurry up, GlaxoSmithKline, and get us a vaccine already!
  2. Well, it was announced that the Eugene Emeralds' 2020 season would be cancelled a couple of days back (along with the rest of the Minor Leagues)...
  3. I believe Franklin & Marshall is slightly smaller...regardless, one or the other is fourth/fifth.
  4. Good thing this is TheMat.com and not TheDiamond.com, because there is a rule specific to college baseball that players have to be eligible in the fall in order to be eligible in the spring. That said, the only thing I could think of is if he's having trouble getting credits transferred from Missouri to Iowa, which is often an issue for people transferring late in their college undergrad careers.
  5. Thanks Pinnum...tried to look for it on the Fresno State athletics website, got nowhere...obviously because it was on the institutional website.
  6. The only thing I could think of is that it was a violation of institutional policy. Other than that, I'm stumped...a search of the three-letter word that's a synonym for gender came up with one completely unrelated match in the entire handbook. Edit to add: The restrictions relative to campus involves a 30-mile radius from campus where they can go. 30 miles from Fresno is Visalia, Lemoore, and not very much else.
  7. http://www.ncaapublications.com/productdownloads/D120.pdf If somebody can point me to where in here such a thing is against the rules, please let me know, because I'm not seeing it.
  8. Lock Haven would compete in Division II for women's wrestling if it grew to that point.
  9. https://www.postandcourier.com/sports/citadel-dismisses-longtime-wrestling-coach/article_a4a55c60-af3f-11ea-a38b-232c88ef5ae5.html
  10. Pretty sure it already has...if you don't believe me, just ask the esteemed Jason Bryant.
  11. You said 19 days after the NCAA basketball championship game, which would've put the Championships as April 23-25th this year. The NBA and NHL Playoffs would've been very much in full swing by that point (the NHL playoffs would have started on roughly April 7th, meaning any NHL arena is out even for the weekend after the orangeball Championships, and the NBA playoffs on roughly April 18th).
  12. During the leagues' regular seasons, that's totally manageable, they can definitely schedule around it. During the NBA/NHL/AHL playoffs, it's totally not manageable at all. Nobody (not even the Knicks and Rangers) are going to plan on not making the playoffs two, three, four, five years in advance so the NCAA can host the wrestling championships there.
  13. Good luck getting arenas several years in advance when you have to fight with NBA and NHL playoffs...
  14. Hey...if anybody from Texas starts talking trash about you, you can always threaten to subdivide, and then Texas will fall down a spot on the list of largest states!
  15. Are you comparing Mr. Moveurfeet to Aaron Burr?
  16. Would expect conferences to be more likely to go to divisions, rather than less, as a cost-saving measure.
  17. In many team sports, they did. They didn't touch anything with respect to wrestling.
  18. FWIW, New York is floating a pilot proposal to go to 13 weights (from 15), but a different 13 than Pennsylvania, namely 102-110-118-126-132-138-145-152-160-172-189-215-285...but New York also has seventh-grade eligibility.
  19. But were either of them members of this message board?
  20. I know I'm linking to a Wikipedia article here, which is dangerous, but allow me to go through the numbers: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/COVID-19_pandemic 71,921 deaths, 1,233,146 cases equates to a 5.8% mortality rate. If I'm off by an order of magnitude on the mortality rate, the issue in this case is that the number of actual cases is 10x higher, not my calculations being off.
  21. No, that's not the threshold before the deaths are important, but the threshold we recently (in the last week) hit with COVID-19. As for me, somebody I work with tested positive for the disease (don't worry, he's back healthy). We're looking at, as of right now, about a 5% mortality rate for COVID-19, which is at least an order of magnitude higher than the flu most years (in most years, it's about .1 to .2%), which is why we're doing all of this social distancing, something we haven't done in my lifetime, or (most likely) anybody's lifetime on this message board (was anybody on this board around during World War I?)
  22. Sorry man...but I'm not about to lie to make us happy. I just don't see a 2020-21 wrestling season barring a vaccine.
