    They might want to consider (as hard as it might be for them) the long-term and potentially permanent effects from exposure, regardless if their symptoms are mild or not. You don't get a do-over when you permanently injure your heart and/or lungs.

    Myocarditis, inflammation of the heart muscle, has been found in at least five Big Ten Conference athletes and among several other athletes in other conferences, according to two sources with knowledge of athletes' medical care.

    Me? I hate wearing a mask. I don't breathe well with a mask, it fogs up my glasses and I just don't like my airway being restricted in any way. But I wear a mask anyway. If these kids don't care about getting the virus, I can live with that. But I don't want it myself and would rather not unknowingly pass it on to someone else.

      Taking one for the team, stick tap. My wife found some plastic insert that goes inside the mask to push it out a bit from your face. I have figured out the distance my glasses have to be from my face to avoid the fogging.

      I saw a tweet, the ladies are working out right now, riveting news I know. Now that the Cup has been decided, with a former BADger getting is name on the cup, hockey, oh hockey where are you? If the season does ever start, and it's on the Flow hockey site, I'm all in. Unless I find a way to get into LaBahn to see all the games like usual. I just hope this big C19 spike finally flushes this thing out of the system with people following rules.

      • Well, the B16+1 men have a kinda hockey schedule, a very reduced 24 game plan. I assume the worst case is OSU, UM and UW only play eachother since they are all on the same page on the testing front. There's no way the little MN schools will be able to get on that ship. This is a depressing deal for women's hockey.

        I was twittering with Chris Dilks about the NHL draft last night and he mentioned to me Dara Greig is "very skilled with the puck". I'm drooling over a Webster/O'Brien/Greig line, if they ever play.

        • It’s widely known that Princeton, Harvard & Yale have told their players to defer this year and they’ll play next year with no loss of eligibility. (Really screws up recruiting for the next few grades)
          If WCHA teams can get a reduced schedule in then good for them. Youth Hockey is being played in MN, WI and other states so I don’t see why colleges shouldn’t give it a shot.

          • Per an article that I saw on USCHO's rival College Hockey News website, the ECAC plans to start league play in January with 2 divisions. One division would be for the NY schools and the other division would be made up of all the non-NY schools. The article was written 2 weeks ago on 9/24 and it's obviously not official yet - as was noted in the first sentence of the article. There is no mention of it at all on the ECAC hockey website. Just thought I'd post it here since there was some chatter here about Ivy League teams. Here's the link: https://www.collegehockeynews.com/ne...-Division-.php

              I think the rub is the B16 schools can better afford to do lots of testing and the little MN schools can't, so developing a testing protocol that works for all from a cost and thoroughness aspect will be/is difficult. The little MN schools could just play each other and maybe the B16 teams could just play each other, meaning PSU could play with UW MN and OSU since surely they are in the same boat as I have described above.

              • Of course WI just doesn't qualify for hosting a women's FF, but MN has 2 locations that do.

                • USWNT camp invitees:

                  Current players: Bowlby, LaMantia, Curl, O'Brien. No Webster?!?!?!!? She's maybe the best forward on the team! (maybe a little over-hyped yeah yeah, the downer comments are coming from me below). Her and O'Brien were always 1a and 1a if you get my drift. Awesome to see an incoming Fr going, very impressive. Great to see LaMantia get a look.

                  Past players: Rigsby, Decker, Knight, Roque. No Pankowski, SAD. She has always been on the edge of the team, so not a huge surprise, but sad. Duggan has retired from the team. Makes me sad too.

                  Future players: Harvey. SUPER STOKED! UW hasn't had a dominant, game changing D since.......?

                  The way Pankowski just willed UW to that title sure makes me think Roque was in line to do the same last year. I'll never fully recover from that team being denied the chance to repeat the title win with that group of Seniors. Sad. Sad. Sad.

                  Will I even get to see O'Brien and Webster this year? Sad.

                  • Harvey was probably the best player on the ice in Wednesday nights NAHA game vs Shattuck u19. That is saying something for a D

                      Love the insight! Could you expound on what you saw?

                      TDM did tweet out that Webster and Pankowski were in the pool for the USNT, but could not attend for some reason. I'm glad I didn't jump off the bridge last week, though the sedatives are slow to wear off.
