Well at least no ICU nurses or docs have kids...oh wait

What about those patients that need ongoing chronic management? Departments like pulmonology, nephrology, endocrinology, ophthalmology, cardiology, orthopedics.........they will all lose staff as well.

NCAA cancels remaining winter and spring championships

Today, NCAA President Mark Emmert and the Board of Governors canceled the Division I men’s and women’s 2020 basketball tournaments, as well as all remaining winter and spring NCAA championships. This decision is based on the evolving COVID-19 public health threat, our ability to ensure the events do not contribute to spread of the pandemic, and the impracticality of hosting such events at any time during this academic year given ongoing decisions by other entities.

Spring too?  Good grief are some drunk on the Kool-Aid.

So are all HS athletes going to get robbed of the rest of their seasons as well this school year?

This is f-n insane.

When do any of us get our lives back? Seriously.

Solid point, lets stop wasting time and money on cancer, aids ebola, etc.

Clearly I am being facetious, but again, it does not all have to be so black and white. I'm willing to put my trust in medical and economic experts over the public opinion. Doesn't make it fun or convenient, but would you feel different if this affected a different grouping of people? Babies, Children, Young Adults?

My point is there is no perfect answer to how to handle this. Do nothing? Do Everything? Somewhere in between?

I'm not expert, I'm just saying some people need to temper their anger over sporting events, when there are bigger things at stake.

I agree not black and white...the reaction right now IS extreme.  I’m disappointed about the NCAAs, but I am more concerned about the financial markets and societal breakdown that we seem to be on the precipice of.

Pretty sure that I haven't been this depressed about Hockey since the whole .6 second thing.  Good thing there is no bourbon at my desk.

As a fan, its tough to describe the level of disappointment. The last two season of UND hockey were tough to watch, so to witness a season like this, was pretty special.

If there is a silver lining at all, hopefully it makes any early flight risks consider coming back to get the chance they missed out on. Sadly, this is 3 years in a row without watching UND play in an NCAA tourney game. Our current Jr. class will likely, and hopefully, only play in one NCAA tourney in their career; let that one sink in for second.

The season that these boys just had was special indeed.  Seasons like this one don't come around often.  Would they have won the national title...who knows, but they were certainly one of the frontrunners.  Really have to feel for the players, especially the seniors.  Great season, team.

Seriously, no champion this year?  Has that ever happened before, for any reason?

This team will be a National Champion in my mind.  Would they have won?  Who knows.  They had it all and would have certainly been one to beat in the Frozen Four.  I, too feel bad for the seniors.  They played their hearts out and had a great season.  Way to go guys.

I realize this is the hockey thread but this goes waaaaaayyyyy beyond sports.  Just got a call from my brother, Des Moines Public Schools shutting everything down for 17 days.  Not one confirmed case of coronavirus in Polk County.  That's 17 days of parents getting pulled out of the workforce to take care of their kids.

Other cities will follow.

Productivity is going to grind to a standstill.  I thought Dow 17,000 was a joke, at this point I hope it stops there.  We are heading for a massive recession.

The train is completely off the rails.......just have to wait for the crash to bring all of this nonsense to a stop.

No "if" there......it's a given.

Perspective you won't hear from the MSM

Worldwide Coronavirus stats:

 

128,000 cases

4718 deaths

69,000 FULLY RECOVERED (So far)

A 3% death rate is nothing to scoff at though.    

People keep comparing this to the 2009 pandemic, but H1N1,'s fatality rate was  .01-.08%

Terrible terrible way to end the season, not sure if it’s right or wrong. Just feel bad for the boys and Berry. This years team was solid.

Although it’s very difficult to find positives during this strange, unprecedented time, one positive is the possibility that the NCAA structure may be forced to change based on the uncoordinated leadership and delayed decision-making over the past 48 hours. 

For posters on this site, I can’t imagine there are many delightful thoughts regarding Mark Emmert.

It's not 3%.

Based on recent literature. Slightly over a 1%...and dropping.
