Looks like the Corona will be driving all our convo for the foreseeable future and we're all gonna have a shit load of free time. Minus well breakout a few different threads.

IMO the sports cancellations really started the ball rolling for people to start waking up to the issue.  I don't listen to 97.1 religiously, but it has been really good and on the forefront of conversation the last two weeks. Valenti has done a great job; going for 'every relax' to 'hole lee fuq'.

I wonder if the NCAA will give winter/spring sports an extra year of eligibility? Seems far fetched, but a lot of kids are getting robbed of postseason play.

Spring football?

Recruiting?

WTF is ESPN, Fox Sports, etc. going to do for the next 4 weeks? I wonder if this could be a death blow to one of them. ESPN was already struggling.

If this happens, do you think Cash would come back? I have no idea what his draft stock is. With everything he has been through this year, I could see him wanting a do over.

Supposedly that was his thing throughout the year, thinking to the NBA since he was being told her was a top 20 prospect.... Certainly didn't play like that

MSU Spring Game cancelled

https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.mlive.com/sports/2020/03/michigan-state-football-spring-game-canceled.html%3foutputType=amp

Michigan State football’s spring practice is on hold and the spring game is now off amid concerns about the coronavirus.

The annual Green-White game, scheduled for 4 p.m. on April 18 at Spartan Stadium, is canceled, a program spokesman said on Friday afternoon. That news came after the Big Ten on Friday morning announced it suspended all organized team activities until April 6 and the situation will be re-evaluated at that time.

If you need a Sports fix, America’s Day at the Races is on FS2 today from 3-7pm. Stakes races and a Derby prep race or two. Plus you can bet on the races via sports books. BOOM. Oaklawn, Aqueduct, Turfway, and Santa Anita I believe.

Big Ten suspends all team activities... no organized team activities will be held by schools until April 6. The policy will be evaluated after that.

Pro basketball reemerging in Asia amid coronavirus recovery

"Professional basketball appears set to return to the first countries in Asia inflicted with the coronavirus, though it likely will be played without spectators.

Games in South Korea, which drew worldwide praise for its success in containing the virus, seem closest to returning. South Korea's league, the KBL, has games scheduled at the end of March, though in empty arenas. Many teams will see their American players landing in airports around the country over the next week, several agents told ESPN....."

NFL Free Agency is happening. That's something to talk about.

Vikings resigned Cousins for 2 years and 66 mil.

The Texans are trading DeAndre Hopkins to the Cardinals for David Johnson. That seems fucked up.

Saw a tweet that that trade would get vetoed in 100% of fantasy leagues and probably get the owners booted out, at that. Coronavirius - Sports Related 502811600

Each team needs to elect one player representative and finish these seasons in E-Sports. Can't wait to see Jeremy Lin (is he still on the team?) talking cash shit to Lebron as the Raptors are decimating the Lakers in their next matchup this season.

What the hell is this bullshit?

Bestowing national title to Kansas 'would be great,' Bill Self says

If the NCAA decides to use the final polls to identify a national champion after canceling the NCAA tournament amid coronavirus concerns, Bill Self will gladly accept the trophy.

The head coach at Kansas, the projected No. 1 overall seed had the 68-team field been announced, said he understands that using the polls -- Kansas is No. 1 in the final USA Today Coaches' Poll -- to decide a champion wouldn't be the typical way to do it but also said he'd be "in favor" of an alternate process in a unique season.
