COVID-19 / Re: Vaccine/Antibody updates
« Last post by Fluffy Blue Monster on Today at 07:44:26 PM »
The article mentioned it, and I “get” fear sells and gets more clicks, but the vaccine work is a modern day miracle. I don’t think people appreciate how quickly and how decisively strong these vaccines are against Covid-19.

If these vaccines hadn’t arrived until late 2021, I can’t imagine how miserable I’d be. Without supply chain issues, anyone who wants a vaccine should be able to almost have both doses by Memorial Day. That’s eff’n amazing.

Right. Growing weary of the “but is a third way coming?” ...when there is no real indication one is actually coming.

Sorry I'm such a rube with more questions.  I honestly gave these a quick google but reached that tipping point where if anyone has quick answers, its probably more efficient than me spending more time trying to blindly figure these out:

Are VPNs per device, or do I get login credentials that I can use across devices?

Are all devices VPN compatible? I'm sure its pretty inuitive to set up a VPN on a computer, but say (hypothetically) a frustrated gentleman wanted to stream MLB.TV though his Samsung smart TV to get local games otherwise only available with a cable subscription.  Is there a way to run the TV's internet access through the VPN?

Any recs for VPNs that folks have tried and liked? In particular and in light of Topper's comment, anyone ever used one with MLB.TV?

I was a member of Athletic Board.it was never our job to hire or fire. It was all budget work. Hires were done by AD and Administration.

You didn't interview potential coaches? Turn down Hank's return?

What happened back in April already that led to such a shocking drop in case mortality and hospitalization rate? 

Just more testing being performed so the denominator was getting larger?  Really is stunning to see how low the case fatality rate is if you’re under 60.

COVID-19 / Re: Vaccine/Antibody updates

I can’t find a written story, but I just heard on the NBC news that CDC is actively studying whether people who previously had Covid only need a single dose of the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine.

If this strategy is ultimately approved, it would accelerate the rollout even further.

Wasn't the NIT considered a big disappointment too? I feel like that's been mentioned a lot from people who were there around then.

They lost Key, McIlvaine and Logterman but did have Eford, Pieper and Miller back.  FWIW, Sporting News picked them to finish 6th in the Great Midwest that year and finished t-3.

Had losses to Illinois-Chicago and UWGB and not one of the better UWGB teams (though they made the tournament).

Sam Houston also lived with a Cherokee tribe in his teens.  Andrew Jackson put him in charge of trying to remove Cherokee's from lands.  He sided with the Cherokee and once wore Native American garb to a meeting between them and that old racist POS John Calhoun.  Which infuriated Calhoun and Houston left the army.  Then he later got accused of fraud for trying to get rations to Native Americans who were being resettled...he responded by beating the hell out of the accusing senator with a cane.

Sam Houston...certified non-racist and general badass.

I feel like I just watched a drunk history vignette

No rewriting needed. He peaked in year 2 with KOs players and slid downward for three years. We were in a negative trajectory for over half of Deanes tenure.

I see no way they make a move unless something behind the scenes going on. Message board smoke if anything “There is actually some trouble brewing in Madison that i am not at liberty to go into right now.”

Curious where you’ve seen or heard this

Disagree, you can look back and say that based on recruiting but the team on the court went from an NIT team to a 4 seed in the NCAA tourney in year 2.  Also won a conference tourney in year 3.   I wasn’t a Deane fan and thought he should be fired but not going to rewrite history in order to make Wojo look better.
