  1. NCAA doesn't count wins and losses at all other than to do the stats for that given years event.
  2. In having worked the event for 20 years I did hear something about the D1/2/3 event sizes. Around 30 years ago D1 downsized slightly from 360 to 330 by eliminating the D2/3 qualifiers. Reason given was that no other sports allows 2 bites at the apple. But D2/3 also downsized- fairly significantly as I recall. Perhaps JB or PT can confirm what I am about to say. Reason for D2/3 downsizing was to bring the ratio of qualifiers versus total starters inline with other sports. Why didn't D1 do the same? D1 has almost 50% (33/~70). The reason I was given was that the D1 event was one of the best attended of all sports beyond football/bball and I assume Hockey. Might be a few others but ... So they didn't want to play with it.
  3. I agree that only one tournament (or at least one series including the qualifiers) are well attended. I've said this earlier but will try to say in another way. Duals are great at home. At the NCAA duals events, pretty much only those schools drew and largely only schools within a reasonable distance. I'm sure there were a few pure fans but nothing like at the NCAAs. Duals are very parochial (not using the religious definition) and mainly only help those schools. And there aren't that many schools at the duals events. Plus having two national events would likely limit a lot of people to choosing just one in so far as travel and vacation are concerned.
  4. In Fargo, he was DC. Kind of all over the place but could lift and throw with ease. One year (after soph year I think) his ticket brought him out for greco. He didn't know about it and didn't know greco. The coaches taught him on the plane. I think he placed 5th.
  5. It's full bore but I like the symbolism invoked.
  6. There are a couple of committees at USAW that end up making the decision. Bender and Gutches might make a proposal to said committees but they don't make the decisions.
  7. You can't see the real clock. I do think the graphic was slightly off (not as much as I had previously thought) but the tapper reaches for the ref before DC flips and you can see the ref trying to stop BM before also.
  8. Lehigh men's rowing is a club. Women's is varsity.
  9. I was thinking the Ivies consider similar. Just an Ivy schedule. My reasoning for this was that at least as we speak now the Ivy states are in better shape than the rest.
  10. Wouldn't that be a reason to keep it since they aren't spending the money?
  11. That's right. Total deaths for the year have indicated that what is reported is at least 20% below what it likely actually is.
  12. I'm surprised you would defend someone named PinFall!
  13. Yes and no. Sure, duals attract interest. But do they at remote and often neutral sites? Plus generally those duals were often rematches.
  14. Flu last year - 34k. Murders- ~17k. Traffic fatalities - ~38k Why worry about any of these?
  15. Maybe people want to get rid of Trump because we knew before the election he couldn't handle the job. Especially, if there was a crisis. Now he's proven that to be more correct than we could ever have known.
  16. I didn't notice that you could live on campus but still had to take online. Weird.
  17. I was responding to your saying all classes were online. I guess you meant all classes COULD be online not that every kid had to be online which is how I took your statement.
  18. Also pro mask where needed - not sure that grocery store workers are necessarily close to each other that much. Stockers are usually off by themselves (relative to other workers) and checkers have their own aisles. But both sets end up coming close to patrons so they are likely to interact with someone infectious. This might depend on the size of the store. I do my main shopping at Wegmans but supplement at Wawas (east coast convenience store). I could see the workers closer to each other at Wawa than at Wegmans. Not sure here (I don't think anyone is)
  19. https://news.harvard.edu/gazette/story/2020/07/harvard-to-bring-up-to-40-of-undergrads-to-campus-this-fall/
  20. Simple google- not the exact report he was referring to but similar numbers https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation/2019/05/14/military-service-most-young-people-dont-qualify-careers/3665840002/\ https://www.heritage.org/defense/report/the-looming-national-security-crisis-young-americans-unable-serve-the-military
  21. We know what he thinks about for his kid!
  22. Looks like he's calling the local lawn mowers for stalling!
  23. Initially, people were thinking of wearing masks to protect themselves (with good reason). That reason didn't hold up super well with most masks other than n95s. At the time, the country's inaction left us with too few of them so don't wear was to make sure health care people had enough. Eventually, we realized the majority of masks for the public did a decent job (not 100%) of preventing the spread FROM the wearer.
  24. You're the one missing the whole point. Nothing to do with a narrative on my part. You said Republicans aren't dismissing but are taking a wait and see attitude. That is in and of itself dismissing the science. The science was telling us DON'T wait and see- ACT!
