  1. Thanks
    BigTimeFan got a reaction from Peso in Lee Kemp   
    Great thread for a group that should be talking about NCAAs and the Olympic team trials. Sigh. 
     
    I watched the documentary a few weeks ago as well. I loved it. Who knew about his crazy first wife? Not me. Really unfortunate. Here’s a few things 
     
    1. I looked up his son at Fresno State. He had a winning record his freshman year but not a world beater. But I have faith. I love to see him develop into a force. I have this hope that he’s a late starter because of the nonsense with his mother and that he’s going to crush it. 
     
    2. Kemp’s match with Gable could be compared to when Sanderson came out of retirement and wrestled in the world team trials. Sanderson won and took fifth in the worlds but imagine if some eighteen year old beat him. That’s how fantastic Kemp’s win was. Instead Sanderson wrestled two time NCAA champ, hodge winner and world silver medalist Jake Herbert and crushed him.

    Maybe 3 stalling calls on Gable?

    Congrats on your impending nuptials. It sounds like you really love her and you found a great woman. For me my wedding was a blessed event because all my good friends and my family and my wife’s good friends and family were there. We cherish that memory because they were there. It sounds like it will he the same for you and so you absolutely made the right call.

    There’s got to be some ways to ease some of the pain for wrestlers if they want. 
     
    1. They should (and likely will) award the Hodge. 
     
    2. How about an all star meet in the spring if / when things settle back to normal. Three or four mats. The 1-2 seeds wrestling center mat, 3-4 seeds on another mat and so on. Add a weight allowance and make it a non-official match so records don’t matter. Many wrestlers will stay in shape because of the Olympic trials so people might be game.
    What else ?

    BigTimeFan got a reaction from Katie in Will the NCAA test for COVID-19?   
    They absolutely should but the issue is there aren’t enough tests available to test every athlete. The criteria right now in some places is you have to have a fever and then have to get a flu test and only then can you get the test. 
     
    EDIT: It would seem unfair to test a bunch of college athletes who aren’t at risk when you could use those tests to test elderly and truly at risk folks. The tests are in short supply.

    Well put. And the estimates right now are they have the capacity to test 15,000 people per day. Maybe that’s true. That sounds like a lot but there are fifty stares so that’s 300 per state and a backlog of people who need to be tested, loads of people who may have it and are truly at risk. Not a chance they would test a bunch of insanely healthy athletes in the prime of their lives.

    Because of the bottleneck at testing facilities and lack of tests nationwide, it’s unlikely they would do any tests as a precautionary measure or even get them back in time if they did. You have to be showing severe symptoms to be tested at all.

    Here’s a quote from an infectious disease specialist who attended a recent conference discussing cases and their presentation  
    It is an average of 8 days to development of dyspnea (dyspnea = shortness of breath) and average 9 days to onset of pneumonia/pneumonitis. It is not like Influenza, which has a classically sudden onset. Fever was not very prominent in several cases
