    I'll see if I can find any photos etc, on the UW Women's team twitter account of their travel last year etc. They love posting photos and videos of the team travelling.

    Adding: a video on their instagram of them getting on the plane headed for 2019 Frozen Four. Quite obviously a private, chartered plane; quite obviously not a commercial flight.

    When it gets to NCAA Championship events the NCAA has chartered jets to move all the Basketball teams around the country. Hockey teams (Both Men and Women) I know for DIII are moved around with idle jets as available. Any school that wants to travel at a different time than when the jets are available needs to pay the difference which 10+ years ago was $ 30,000 or more.

          ESPN just predicted all college sports' games will be cancelled after tonight. Just a guess based on the NBA, and Hoiberg looking terrible on the Nebraska bench, but ESPN's announcers get paid for their opinion.

            Yup, read that statement but had not seen an official UM statement until I posted. The wife and I fall into the high risk category and had already decided against attending. This way, though, we might get our tickets refunded.

              Agree with TTT's endorsement. Too much of a powder keg for folks on here who have an axe to grind politically.

                And with some introspection and deletion above, I will take some of my own advice and apply it by offering you an apology for how hard I was on you in the other thread. We should be able disagree on things and keep it civil. I failed in doing that.

                    With all the panic over the virus I was wondering when we'll start seeing walkers appear?

                        It's not funny, but it was funny seeing that video of him looking terrible and the coach next to him and putting on the sanitizer. What a complete lack of proper judgement for him not to remove himself from the team let alone coach a game. I guess it shows the pressure of having to win at all costs to get your team into the ncaa's or get that higher seed. Not that he has it, but it's really a bad look.

                        This is an interesting topic, I don't like the quarantine the discussion idea, I believe that we can act as reasonable adults and have a civil discussion. If a person feels they cannot conduct themselves in a reasonable way, then they should use good judgement and not post. The problem with this country is we can't have civil discussions, we don't respect each other's right to their own opinion. I believe the little enclave of 17 posters can buck the trend and do the right thing.

                        I saw some really interesting stats on this event compared to other events, I will try and post a link at some point to it and we can discuss.

                              Great post Timothy, looking forward to your links. I read something briefly about the effect crowds have on refs to make certain calls, I believe the phrase used was “social pressure” and how it impacts refs. It will be interesting for the refs to only have the coaches yelling at them instead of crowds, and we’ll see how that affects makeup calls etc.

                                Well, than I stand corrected. Would that apply only to the Frozen Four? Or the semi’s as well? OSU is flying commercial this weekend and had to split their team up on to two different flights. My contact had said that was because the NCAA does not pay for private charters. Must have been more to it.
