    Start Oct 24...Looks like it was a unanimous vote.

    He and I had virtually nothing in common LOL. He had no interest in sports (not even football or baseball), fishing or muscle cars. I like Ford, he was a Chevy guy. He was a dem due to his work/union stuff, I'm typically not a union guy/republican. He lived at home until he was 93. My wife did his shopping and I took care of the homestead for him. His legend status was in regards to his involvement in the local fire dept. Him and his wife were/are fantastic people. Sadly his wife had an awful stroke 7 years ago and her brain is scrambled. She's been in a long term high care facility ever since. God works in mysterious ways.

    Covid stories......

    A very upstanding fellow from church has close family friend to them where the mom has tested positive for covid, the case is mild. The husband has tested negative (so far), though they were not social distancing at all being a married couple right up to her positive test if you know what I mean. The kids both signed up online to get tested but did not make it to the test. They both got letters saying they tested positive. YEP. The source is very credible. Lots to digest on this one.

    My father in law passed away 8 days ago. It was so sad not to give him a proper sendoff, he was a legend type of a guy in a small town. He deserved more than 40 people to pay their last respects. We had the wake/service outside, in the rain. What really sucked was his last 3 months in the old folks home he was shut off from us due to this stupid thing. We couldn't even call him on his phone and stand outside his window and chat. FINALLY they figured out how to regulate the visits/calls, but they were still limited. It had to be that way, but it doesn't mean we all had to like it. Not much to digest on this one.

    I was curious about myocarditis. As I read this article, it looks like several factors (meaning, before C-19) can cause this issue.

There are cases from Influenza, the common cold, bacteria (I'm sure many of you have seen the places these students live).

    I would imagine any student-athlete that has been diagnosed with C-19 should have a cardiac checkup as well. They are recommending it in the office my wife works. Potentially (maybe) setting the stage for getting checked after having influenza, or any other seasonal cold. I saw a statistic from a UofM Medicine article that stated about 20 percent of sudden deaths in young adults are linked to myocarditis. Interesting for sure. Again, just wondering why it is being considered big news now.

    You should be curious about myocarditis since it has now become clear that the article posted earlier about one third of Covid1984 positive Big Ten athletes having myocarditis was just a tad inaccurate.

    I have not been following the discussions here. We have a cottage off the grid that was hit by a bad storm three or four weeks ago, and I have been busy getting power restored and cleaning up down trees and broken branches. I feel like I have been living in a Hemingway novel: The Old Man and the Pole Saw. Most years, I would have spread the work over several seasons, but we have friends and relatives who want to use the cottage for self quarantine as they flee back to Minnesota to escape brutal heat in Arizona and California.

    However, DDad asks a question that I actually can answer. I mentioned in a post about a month ago that my wife's cardiologist chatted extensively with her during an annual visit. The doctor works at U of Mn hospitals, and she may well have participated in the study DDad mentions. The doctor was mentioning her concern about the fact that C-19 (I like this abbreviation) was causing myocarditis in patients, and that it was causing it at a rate higher than the other diseases that cause myocarditis.

    So now we have a population of previously healthy people who have preexisting conditions caused by C-19. When next these folks get C-19, which looks like it may be around Christmas, they will be at greater risk of dying. I wonder how the bulltweeters will spin those deaths, since the underlying conditions were caused by C-19.

    There was a vote 11-3 against. Why it was hidden and denied is the question.

There's no way to bubble like the nba and nhl. They could have set up team specific dorms to keep them together and also limit their outside contacts.

    Sounds like we have common ground! It sounds like my grandmother's sage advice of don't cry over spilled milk with a modem twist.

    I happened to see an interview with Barry Alvarez last night, and he addressed this very idea.

    He told the interviewer that he was in a meeting recently with other Big Ten coaches and ADs. And what he told them was "It is Sunday, You lost your game on Saturday, It's over. There's no point in worrying about that game and that loss. Time to make a plan for the next game. Time to make a plan to move forward."

    I've seen articles that said the vote was 11-to-3, and I've seen articles that say 'there was no vote... but the outcome was 11-to-3'. Irrelevant semantic games. IMO.
