    Force118 reacted to Idaho in Documentary - Wrestle   
    I didn't see any other threads on this (because we all love 7 threads on the same topic). Watched it last night. The storylines are pretty good. The filming is excellent. The wrestling level itself was not real great but that wasn't the point of the doc. It has won several awards- came out about a year ago. Story of a wrestling team in Alabama from a failing high school. This was the school's last year in existence. Coach is working hard to keep these kids in school, graduate and get somewhere in life. Yes, it's high school and this is a college thread - I get it and don't care.

    When The Sopranos ended the way it did it was brilliant. We all got to figure out what was going to go down and that's why it was cool. Unanswered questions are part of life and sometime they're the most interesting part. So what will we never know?
    Would Spencer Lee have bonused his way through the bracket on his way to the Hodge?
    Who would have won the meat grinder that is 133? Four guys had a legit shot at the title but what about Chaz Tucker or Mickey Phillipi? You know it was never going to be the big four here, somebody was going to bust this bracket.
    Did Nick Lee learn from the B1G tournament or did Pletcher have it in him to gut it out in his senior year?
    Could Sammy "I have no offense but just try to score on me" Sasso win it all as a freshman?
    Who in the hell was going to win 157? Deakin looked like the favorite but Hidlay is known for showing up in March.
    Cenzo v Bull? There isn't a person alive who knows for sure how that turns out. Going into the B1G tourney I didn't want to see them go upper body but after the finals I'd love to see Cenzo just let it fly.
    Marky Mark v Kemmerer? I still feel like it was Mark's to lose but I have this feeling that he's HEW. We were all robbed by not seeing this and the 165 final.
    No Zahid so who is the man at 184? Nobody knows and nobody will ever know. We'll see Brooks and Hoagie Hidlay next year w/ the rest of the weight plus Dean but this weight was so up in the air that it will just remain a mystery
    I might feel the most sorry for Kollin Moore. No question at 197, he was always going to win. Just like MyMar last year.........
    Gable has now been denied twice and will be a junior who has never won a title. Will he be a two-timer or will Parris continue to jump levels? Can Kerkvleit be a player next year? He gave Gable all he could handle while bumping up a weight in HS so it's not out of the question.
     
    That's all I got. But I truly hope all of these questions remain unanswered.

    I wouldn’t deny that at all and I agree wholeheartedly with your post. Several threads have been hijacked by political posturing. I was actually kinda relieved when it got consolidated onto this one.

    The OP’s takeaway is hey it was fine for me, why is everyone worried? It’s terrible logic and it flies in the face of literally all the reports coming around the world. This is a “we” thing now. You decisions right now affect other people. If someone can’t handle a couple cancellations to protect the most vulnerable they are the biggest wuss bags in generations.

    About par for the course. There is a certain segment of the population that trusts idiots over experts. The experts are getting paid to do what they do, after all, so how can they be trustworthy? An idiot online giving his opinion for free has no reason to lie or deceive. One idiot rode this line of thinking all the way to the White House. And of course slashed funding the CDC and severely hampering their ability to respond to a situation like this.

    I'm with @Force118 on this; things still changed dramatically in 2016, and not for the better.
    Add incompetence, impulsivity and cruelty to the mix, and Clinton's Huey Long-esque corruption seems quaint in comparison.

    We arent a machine. There is more to humanity than being healthy and productive. 
    I have family who would likely not make it(I was mocked for saying this yesterday. Lets hope I have better luck this time) if we do not manage it. To me the extra precautions matter. Those family members add value to my life and make me a better person. I cant be alone in feeling that way and I fear the day when we view all people as cogs in a machine who are dispensable when they cant contribute.

    Sometimes being alarmed is appropriate. Instead of it being the media’s fault maybe the public’s anxiety of this is a direct result of distrust in the government’s message. After 3 plus years of eroding public trust and the integrity of our government institutions can we be surprised if the public does not trust the White House? At this point, even if the information spoken by Pence and *45 are true, it’s unlikely even his most fervent supporters will trust him. That’s scary stuff.

    The media doesn't make decisions for China, Italy, Germany, South Korea, France, UK, Iran. This is a worldwide thing and not just America.  This has everything to do with a virus, the World Health Orginization, and in our case, the CDC. Its maybe a once in a lifetime event and its hard to grasp the complexity of it all, but dont fall down conspiracy theory holes and simple explantations, because that ain't it.

    Force118 reacted to BigTimeFan in Will the NCAA test for COVID-19?   
    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.
