    "The CDC is warning that asymptomatic people are contributing largely to the spread of COVID-19.

    In new guidance issued this week, the agency noted that in most coronavirus cases, people don’t begin showing symptoms for about six days after they are infected."

    Right..if they aren't wearing masks...asymptomatics CAN be a cause of spread.

    However, when I am around known COVID patients, I am not considered exposed or at risk when I am wearing a mask per the CDC. I don't even have to gown up or wear a N95 anymore to enter a room with a COVID patient as long as I am not performing a procedure.
    So it either is or isn't..not both.

    I'm guessing the higher your level of D-1 ball, the lesser the likelihood you ref and have other gigs.

    My dad was a college referee for softball and basketball (D1-D3 softball), D3 and high school basketball. made good money but definitely had a full time career. He was even the assignor for high school and college softball in our area and that wasn't fully paying the bills. Most of these guys have other jobs. 30x2.5k isn't exactly payingg for their kids colleges

    If Stony Brook and Bryant wanted to move forward with the game and only use the 2 refs who havent tested positive, could they? Or are there NCAA rules against playing with only 2 refs?

    Assuming they can't find a replacement ref at the last minute

    Yeah, I ump high school baseball and softball and know some guys that do college ball. Mostly junior college, D-3 and lower level D-1. They all have other jobs, and with all the travel they do during the season it doesn't seem worth it to me.

    Over 86% of Division 1 college basketball programs are still up and running despite a once-in-a-century global pandemic.

    Have a great Monday!

    Gonzaga had a positive before the Auburn game and held player out of that game.

    Baylor's coach tested positive and missed first two games of the season.

    How are these games allowed and others get cancelled?

    Might as well cancel our season.

    Could be one of two things:

    1) the number of close contacts the positive case came in contact with or

    2) some schools are following protocols and some aren’t.

    So Richmond paused for five days and Mason canceled everything through the 16th?

    Or the fact this is the third positive for Gonzaga and their first time pausing their program. None of this seems to make any sense. The minimum is 10 days best case and Richmond is good in 5 maybe 6?!

    Who knows...chaos, like I've been saying.

    Looks like JMU was also in quarantine and is looking to resume practice on Dec. 14th, which is why that game was cancelled. Not really sure why we had to give up the ODU game as well, unless the schools didn't think it was worth it traveling to Richmond for one game.

    Multiple programs already moving to the 10-day pause instead of 14 due to the CDC’s new quarantining guidelines, per source.

    I mean this COVID pausing program scenario is just as odd as the fact that some teams have more than the limit on scholarship players each year... maybe mason is just playing too much by the rules. Heck Richmond paused what 1 or 2 days before us and they play tonight?!?

    still never going to get me think that your tournament idea is even close to a decent idea but you are right here :) JMU also about to be back up and running and they paused slightly before us too

    Games getting shut down left and right, teams on pause, come back and go back on pause.

    Would be awesome to have someone in a leadership position at the NCAA. Maybe even, say, an NCAA commissioner.

    I can’t remember the last time I saw Emmert.

    Sources: The basketball oversight committee expected to recommend that the NCAA allow ALL transfers to get waiver to play this season. This would be proposed to the D-1 Council — which next meets on Dec. 16. There is a chance it could be voted on prior to the 16th.

    LONG OVERDUE

    There are 33 teams currently shut down due to COVID testing in program (with return date): * This list does not include the teams such as Vermont (12-19) and Alabama State (1-2), in addition to the Ivy League, Bethune Cookman and UMES - who aren’t playing this season.
