  1. Incorrect. 99.2% of Italy's deaths came from people with ONE or more pre-existing condition. IIRC, the split was about 25% had one condition, 25% had two, and 50% had three or more. BTW, the pre-existing conditions included high blood pressure and diabetes. By this metric, 40-50% of adult Americans would fall into one of these categories.
  2. Goddammit. Beat me to it. lol
  3. The following were some of many articles about the reduction that I found with a 30sec Google search, and it was from 4 days ago. And I went to the website you got your source from. Holy !@#$. If that's what you consider a credible news source, I don't know what to tell you other than lay off the crack pipe. Here's an article talking about the reduction and cancellation of parts of Defender-20 from 4 days ago: https://thehill.com/policy/defense/487138-us-military-cuts-back-troops-to-participate-in-european-exercise-over-virus Or this article from 2 days ago: https://www.military.com/daily-news/2020/03/12/troops-europe-face-limbo-following-canceled-exercise-travel-ban.html We'll see if any part of Defender-20 will still be a go by Monday night. I'm betting it will be reduced to pretty much just a cargo transport exercise by that point. But maybe it was too far gone to stop, and they will quarantine in place either in Europe or back on American bases.
  4. It was 20k, not 30k, and it was reduced last week to less than that. It still might not happen, and those troops might come back or hunker in place to assist if needed. And the most important part of the exercise is actually practicing getting everything there and getting it back. The military rarely gets a chance to practice moving large amounts of men and equipment to Europe at the same time as if it were a war scenario. They might decide to trim the exercise to just that.
  5. ESPN and others reporting that he was sent home from the hospital after an influenza A diagnosis. The team is no longer quarantined.
  6. Yes(mostly). HS principal and district superintendent during that time at three different schools.
  7. Spoke too soon. Now leaking that they're going with Doug Phillips. Who knows if true, but some insiders saying the HS coach wanted more money for assistants, so they went with the other guy. Phillips's resume: COACHING CAREER YEAR: SCHOOL - POSITION 1991-92: Youngstown State - Graduate Assistant 1997-2000: Springfield Local HS - Head Coach 2001-05: Salem HS - Head Coach 2006: Ohio State - Quality Control (Defense) 2007-08: Bowling Green - DE/Recruiting Coord. 2016: Iowa State - Director of Player Personnel 2017: Cincinnati - Special Teams Coordinator/Tight Ends 2018-: Cincinnati - Running Backs
  8. Word is they're going with the high school coach.
  9. You have it correct. If Moody/UND can prove that he was injured during his true freshman season, then he'll have a shot at a replacement year of competition. But if he redshirted that first year for developmental reasons, it shouldn't matter whether they designate this a medical redshirt year or not. OTOH, I guess it's useful to declare it a medical redshirt year in case he gets injured again; then he could at least get three full seasons of competition.

  11. The full yard back comment wasn't directed at you. Couple other posters here were saying that. Here's a comment from an actual official about the play and the philosophy. The guy is a HS, DII & DIII official that tries to explain things to BV rubes that are as bad about understanding officiating calls as the rubes here(or any other fan site).
  12. LMAO. Dude, you are one of the posters on here that gives graduate classes in that subject.
  13. The replay is now available on ESPN. It wasn't a low throw, and it is super tough to tell if it went backward or not. If it was backwards, it was by about 3 inches over 20 yards.The play is at 1:14:45. Lance threw it with his back foot just in front of the 45 on the near hash. His throwing arm was slightly behind his foot because of the direction he was throwing the ball, so the ball was released either directly over the 45 or maybe an inch or two in front of it. The receiver was about five yards beyond the far hash, facing towards Lance and with both of his feet close together just barely behind the 45 and his body leaning slightly forward. The ball hit him right in the gut, which was directly over the 45. The idea that the ball was a full yard back is idiotic, and mostly due to misremembering and some moron announcers that think they know the rules but don't. If this was a higher profile game with a rules specialist on standby(like NFL or big college games), the official would have said that the officiating philosophy for situations like this is that the ball must be clearly moving backwards before it becomes a fumble. This throw might have been ever so slightly backwards, but that wouldn't be enough; especially on review. Very close call, but ruled correctly on the field.
  14. The clock starts with either the first day of practice or the first day of class, whichever comes first.
  15. It's less about Vraa and more about how the NCAA administers hardship waivers. There always seems to be confusion from fans whether an injured player can get a 6th year or not. The fan confusion normally seems to happen with a UND player at least every other year, which is typical. jdub was thinking Vraa was a case where the NCAA went against their own rules, the rest of us were trying to show that they didn't. That's not to say the NCAA has never gone against their own rules(in this matter), but it happens far more rarely than people think. We tend to focus on and remember the handful of outliers, and never hear about or forget the dozens upon dozens of regular cases.
