    I'm just starting a thread so we can move these arguments away from the Providence game thread, the conference tournament thread, the NCAAT thread, and I'm assuming this has infiltrated the Other Sports Butler Baseball thread or something by now as well.

    This describes a bunch of you...

    “There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there has always been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that 'my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge.’”

    - Isaac Asimov

    This is going to take away from about 6 other threads. Because it is trumping (no pun intended) any tourney plans at the moment.

    I want to say that the Coronavirus is overrated, but then again I don't want to give it any bulletin board material. However, until it starts dominating on the road like it has in China, I'm not willing to say that it is an elite virus.

    https://butlerhoops.com/forum/index.php?threads/navigating-covid-19.2786/ already existed and had discussion (thanks Stax), and for that I'm sorry for creating a duplicate thread.
    I'm not sorry for asking a few of you to take your arguments about the stock market and Chinese consumer goods and savings accounts to a different thread of a basketball message board.
    Game thread is starting to look like the Facebook comments on a local news page.

    My NYC trip is being cut short not by coronavirus, but my aunt passing this morning. Only catching the Thursday game before I have to leave.

    Damn dude, sorry to hear that. Try and enjoy Thursday, you'll be able to do up NYC about as cheap as you'll ever get to. Thoughts to your family.

    Quad 3 win at best, would have been quad 2 if they had Evan Turner.

    The April NAB (National Assoc. of Broadcasters) Convention in in Las Vegas has just been cancelled. I have attended every NAB since 1978...

    With 1,000 exhibitors, over 100,000 people attend this show from 60 countries.

    This is a big deal.

    I work in hotels, we scrubbed $1M out of our forecast for the next 90 days yesterday. We're about to start having conversations about people's livelihoods. Regardless of how deadly the disease is or isn't, it's affecting peoples lives.

    Sorry
    Sorry you will miss your event, you were probably looking forward to it. Probably an appropriate decision in light of the global attendees.

    Coronavirus with the upset for the National Championship. Move aside '85 Villanova.

    Thanks, BUcheer. I appreciate your comment, and I also agree with the decision to cancel it.

    Last year the Dawgs sucked, and I knew this year Cleveland would host the first two rounds. What a surprise, the Dawgs will be in, and since it is fans only they will probably get sent here to Cleveland. I have waited many years for this to happen, and finally it could happen. My wife and I will be the only two standing in front of their assigned Holiday Inn with our welcome to Cleveland sign. Perhaps the field houses will put up wide screen TV's like they do for the world series or football playoffs? I understand the seriousness of the Corona Virus, I just wonder how strange the Tournament could be this year. Stay well to all of you.

    Posting here as it might fall under stupid—but if we’ve reached the point when gatherings of 15,000 people shouldn’t take place, then why aren’t other actions being taken such as closing public schools, no recreational air travel, concerts, etc. This just seems so selective. Just lower the boom on everything non-essential if that’s what it takes?

    Too bad the final four isn’t in Indy this year as they may have changed the venue to Hinkle.
