  1. Why is Japan testing so few people? Are they purposely under testing to try and save the Olympics? Some sketchy stuff here... https://www.nytimes.com/2020/02/29/world/asia/japan-elderly-coronavirus.html https://www.japantimes.co.jp/news/2020/03/02/national/limited-virus-testing-japan/#.Xl52-y3MyBs
  2. That's true but most countries are at least 2-3 months behind China as far as the peak of their epidemic. Countries like South Korea, Iran and Italy are all on the upslope of peak contagion right now. CDC just said yesterday that US will likely see an outbreak as well.
  3. It's likely much higher than that when all is said and done. The 2.3% includes all unknown outcomes. When you look at true outcomes, deaths vs recoveries, it's 8% right now. Will likely settle out closer to 5% when all is said and done though. This is a great site for statistics https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/
  4. Not sure about his sources but he is dating Carlos Beltran's niece.
  5. Wow...some really shady stuff going on there.
  6. IOC senior member: 3 months to decide fate of Tokyo Olympics https://www.foxnews.com/sports/ioc-senior-member-3-months-to-decide-fate-of-tokyo-olympics
  7. Damn Italy doubled it's total to 224 in 1 day and they still have not found patient zero.. South Korea over 800 now. Deaths up to 12 now in Iran (news outlets reporting 50 new dead in Qom, Iran but Iran disputing this), 8 in South Korea, 6 in Italy. https://www.cnn.com/2020/02/23/europe/italy-novel-coronavirus-spike-intl/index.html BTW for those interested CNBC has a daily show with updates on the Coronavirus that I have been watching daily at 7pm.
  8. The time off between the first and second matches will work against him.
  9. Mini out breaks happening in Japan, South Korea and Italy now. All 3 countries have over 100 cases with over 600 each in South Korea and Japan. Iran spiking to with 48 cases and 8 dead (highest death rate in the world). That could be a troubling hotspot. Also the death rate originally thought to be around 2% seems to be climbing as more true outcomes of deaths vs recoveries are being reported. If you go by true outcomes the death rate is around 10%. However there are still a vast amount of unknown outcomes. I suspect it will settle around 5% in the end. Here are a couple of good sites to track the numbers... https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/ https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2019–20_coronavirus_outbreak
  10. Japan's handling of the Diamond Princess crisis is an absolute disaster and textbook for what NOT to do. Japan is likely 2 months behind China from an epidemiology standpoint. I have little confidence in Japan's ability to control this outbreak based on their actions so far. Only positive is warm weather, time and history are generally in their favor in terms of previous epidemics. https://www.reuters.com/article/us-china-health-japan-response/with-stricken-cruise-ship-japan-draws-criticism-over-coronavirus-response-idUSKBN20D0HE
  11. Are you serious? Each team usually has at least 2-3 wrestlers at every weight. These are the guys that Colleges send to these in season tournaments instead of duals. Plus there are many more programs that aren't D1 that have wrestling.
  12. A very prominent Japanese Virologist who worked with the WHO on SARS was recently asked this question and he couldn't give an answer. FWIW Japan has by far the most cases after China when you include the Diamond Princess Cruise ship docked in Yokohama, Japan which has some 630+ cases. Yokohama is only about 30 miles from the heart of Tokyo BTW. https://apnews.com/1ad2e02527c563db3c35d81c063a9568 https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/
  13. Kinner just got beat by someone outside the top 100 at 157 according to Wrestlestat. If Berge can't beat Kinner then it's best not to run him out for Big Ten's IMO. He's clearly nowhere near 100%
  14. Great athletes can be soft. I've said the same thing for a lot of Ohio State football players I cheered for and been criticized for it. Beanie Well, Braxton Miller, Devier Posey, Dwayne Haskins...all soft. None of those guys could take a hit and when they did they went down like a Mike Tyson hit them.
  15. Ref was awful tonight. How did he miss an obvious Pin??
  16. PSU has more holes than I thought they did. 125 we already knew about. Berge clearly is nowhere near ready and Shak is a shell of himself. Neville got gassed bad by a walk-on guy 50 lbs lighter than him. I'd be smiling if I was Iowa right now.
  17. Sad but Shak is a shell of himself. That was a close match 2 years ago. Not sure he makes rd of 16
  18. First stall on PSU all dual!!!!
