Big East COVID Updates
« on: November 19, 2020, 03:34:57 PM »
DePaul is shutting down for 2 weeks due to COVID test results. Their first three games on November 25, 28, and December 1 will be cancelled.

Seton Hall is also shut down currently. That started on November 11th and their originally planned season opener against Winthrop on November 25th has been cancelled.

Connecticut is back to full activities today after having shut down on November 5th.

On the bright side, that'll be their best start for the last two decades!

This would've been so much funnier prior to their 13-1 start a bit ago.

But props for the joke

And now Creighton released a statement they are shutting down and will not be playing in the Crossover Classic in Sioux Falls (Battle for Atlantis replacement). Not sure how many games they will be missing or when they will resume play.

As a DePaw season ticket holder (in a normal season) I got your inside scoop. Via marketing email blast.

Statement from Head Coach Dave Leitao
"We have been able to sustain a level of productivity while facing the COVID-19 pandemic during the preseason, but unfortunately as positive cases have been increasing all around us, we now have to deal with it directly in our program. The attentiveness and understanding of the situation by our players and staff have been a priority since we all returned to campus this summer. We'll get through this together. We'll return to the practice floor and competition after we complete all mandated protocols and procedures."

Statement from Director of Athletics DeWayne Peevy
"We are disappointed the men's basketball program will be unable to start the season as planned after all the hard work our student-athletes, coaches, and staff have put into preparing for these games. Flexibility and patience will continue to be paramount this season as we navigate these unique times. I appreciate the hard work and support of our medical staff and athletic trainers as they work closely with each of our programs to ensure a safe and healthy environment to study, train, practice and compete."

Enjoy every we get.

Me thinks getting in 15 would be a win.
I would take the Rick SLU program right now.

Clearly with college athletics the mindset is different than the pros.

If this whole 1 person tests positive shut down for 2 weeks things carries on. THere is a 0% chance we can complete this season.

It is legit not possible.

I firmly believe that if there is going to be a tournament, they should release definitive criteria for it soon and stick to it.

Sure it is. Every Big East team enters a bubble on January 2. Quarantine for 2 weeks. January 16-February 11, teams play approximately every 2 days to insure at least 13 games each.

It will be messy, but there are ways to do it.

Yeah a bubble would definitely work. But until its announced that it something they are going to legitamately aim for, this current plan is doomed to fail.

I actually think the opposite is true.  Criteria written today may look pretty ridiculous four months from now.

It's going to be messy and imperfect.  We are just going to have to live with that.

I guess that is fair, but then they should make a statement saying just that.  So that people don't cry (ha!) when the field is announced.

Getting basketball games played right now is a logistical nightmare. It may be possible (in a strictly enforced bubble), but it will require hard work, focus, frequent games, and some good luck.

Getting a proper education right now is a logistical nightmare. Colleges are opening, closing, switching back and forth between in-person and virtual, and uncertain what next semester will look like. A good education may be possible, but it will require hard work, focus, and flexibility to change learning method at a moment's notice.

The expectation that they will be able to do both at the same time - essentially hitting two differently moving targets simultaneously - seems pretty unrealistic.

Marquette starts its second semester January 25.  If they are in a bubble til mid February, I don't think it would be much of a problem.  Furthermore, what else are these players going to do when not playing / practicing?

Or you just give college basketball first dibs on the vaccine
By time the vaccine is approved and you go through two doses the basketball season will be over with.
You have to wait 30 days after the first dose to get the second dose. You are not considered safe until 14 days after second dose.

Pfizer said they’d have 50 million doses ready in December alone. Seems like they’ll get approval too. December 1st give everyone in college basketball the shot and then again on January 1st. Conference season and post season saved. Final Four here we come

Exactly.  Screw the frontline workers and those with pre-existing health issues.  WE NEED TO BE ENTERTAINED!!!

It's more likely that we have a final four of us and three small schools that were the only teams able to actually participate in the tournament than a vaccine being prioritized for student athletes, in the second most profitable sport, in the 6th most important conference.
