  1. Do these refs not know how to count to 2? So obvious...wasn't even close
  2. Wow. terrible call..that danger for sure
  3. Lugo looks confident. Gonna be tough for Sammy I think...
  4. Classy fans booing Luke Pletcher during his interview..sumfin
  5. Nick Lee gassed himself out...wow
  6. Is he rooming with Kyle Snyder in Cael's basement?
  7. Curious about Nick Lee's Semi match vs Chad Red as I did not watch it. Sometimes the score 7-5 doesn't tell the whole story. How did that match go?
  8. He may never be "ready" imo....
  9. Lydy is the human stall machine. His only offense is on counters.
  10. Huge for Ohio State next year as long as he can remain qualified. Seems to me he has the flexibility to go several different weights allowing their lineup to slot in around him. Good article detailing the process for him and where he may slot in next year. https://www.elevenwarriors.com/ohio-state-wrestling/2020/03/112608/wrestling-highly-anticipated-recruit-anthony-echemendia-officially-admitted-to-ohio-state
  11. Actually it is useful because you can use it to compare it to other virus's and their virulence. Total number of infected is impossible to tell for any virus. That's why you get such wide ranging statistics for influenza. It's why the CDC says "that influenza has resulted in between 9 million – 45 million illnesses, between 140,000 – 810,000 hospitalizations and between 12,000 – 61,000 deaths annually since 2010" for the common flu? Why? Because they don't know the true number of infected and never will.
  12. You can't include all those people whose true outcome is unknown which is what the 1-2% figure does. Deaths/Deaths+Recovery = 6% currently. Will this number change? Of course and it has been trending downward as more people recover. But it's likely to be higher than the 1-2% figure when all is said and done. Look at China who already have 50K recoveries and their death rate is still hovering around 6% currently. https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/ https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2019–20_coronavirus_outbreak
  13. Says negotiating...doubt they will win. Big money fat cats don't have a leg to stand on versus a serious threat to public health.
  14. I'm guessing this is what you are referring to. 4K spectators will be allowed in the finals. That's still a lot better than the 200K that usually are around. https://www.foxnews.com/us/ohio-arnold-sports-festival-closed-to-spectators-coronavirus Interesting sidenote... Around 20 athletes from five countries impacted by the coronavirus -- China, Iran, South Korea, Japan and Italy -- will be excluded. All other athletes will be asked if they have traveled to affected countries. Seems like a good compromise IMO
  15. Anyone that trusts anything that China does is probably from China.
  16. If you are referring to me I am just going by statistics not predictions or estimations which can be wildly off in both directions and subject to bias. China has almost 50K cases that have already recovered and their mortality rate is still hovering around 6%. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2019–20_coronavirus_outbreak_by_country_and_territory Here is a good article by leading experts explaining why the 3.4% is incomplete at best. https://www.sciencemediacentre.org/expert-reaction-to-who-director-generals-comments-that-3-4-of-reported-covid-19-cases-have-died-globally/
  17. "Fauci also made a point to note that the WHO fatality rate -- 3.4% -- is incomplete because the denominator of asymptomatic cases is currently unknown." ie unknown outcomes are included. It could very well be lower or higher than 3.4%. I have yet to see WHO disclose their methodology for that number. https://abcnews.go.com/International/coronavirus-live-updates-countries-scramble-outbreak-case-numbers/story?id=69381834 These are the 2 sites I use to track it. Based on TRUE endpoint outcomes...death or recovery the mortality rate is currently 6% but dropping daily and will likely end up below 5% IMO. I think it's important to use true outcomes in able to properly compare it to other virus's such as influenza and SARS. Yes it's true that we are under testing people but the same can be said for influenza and other virus's https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/ https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2019–20_coronavirus_outbreak The site below is good to track US cases. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2020_coronavirus_outbreak_in_the_United_States
  18. That 1.4% is not correct as the VAST majority of cases are currently unresolved. The current death rate is 6% based on know outcomes of death or recovery although this is likely to fall. He's also wrong about the 0.6% Flu death rate which is much closer to 0.1% according to the CDC. BTW that 1.4% comes from a study done by Chinese doctors and officials at Chinese hospitals and only based on 1000 cases. https://www.nejm.org/doi/full/10.1056/NEJMoa2002032
  19. Also FWIW the decision to ban spectators seems to have come directly from Governor DeWine after consulting with the CDC. https://www.wkyc.com/article/news/health/coronavirus/mike-dewine-athletes-can-compete-at-arnold-classic-no-spectators-or-expo/95-558e65c3-8d82-4f54-9fe5-62f1bac3fcb1
  20. So only Track is broadcasting it? Please no...
  21. College football games are a completely different type of event. It is not an international gathering. That being said if the outbreak gets worse you will see US sporting events get cancelled or played in empty stadiums. They are already playing soccer in Italy and baseball in Japan to empty stadiums.
  22. It may get there but it is currently 6% based on KNOWN outcomes.
  23. Death rate is between 20X-60X more deadly than the common flu with current death rate at 6% overall and for 80+ year old people its about 20%. Flu death date is about 0.1% https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/
  24. Disagree. This is an international gathering with 22,00+ Athletes alone from almost 100 nations with very close contact between people and athletes and meet and greets. It's the right thing to do. That's very different from a US based sporting event.
