  • The Crawfords

    Some fans at Miami basketball games treat it as a tennis match and even get mad when you yell and cheer. President Crawford was getting everyone to stand up and cheer the last few minutes of the game, something that almost takes a miracle to accomplish.


    I never get why current students, however limited they are, sit down and don't do anything to make for a decent atmosphere. It's like they've never seen a college hoops game, which is almost certainly not the case. From 2012-16 when I was at Miami the only times I recall a decent-sized student section standing and making noise was against OU one time and Dayton after we came back.
    The ushers used to actively discourage it.  That is not a joke or an exaggeration: they would tell students to sit down and be quiet because it upset the blue hairs to have them carrying on.

    I don't know if that's still the case, but it certainly was from 2000-05.

  • Attendance at Games?

    Should let anyone who was in attendance for 2013 come in for free as a make-good.
    Whoever attended in person in 2013 is immune to everything anyway.

  • Sibande Assist Watch

    Miami basketball posted a picture of the team having dinner at Greg Crawford's house, but the caption didn't say whether Nike passed the salt to anyone

    I'm drunk with power on this merging thing. I will soon merge all threads into one super-thread.

    THERE CAN BE ONLY ONE.

  • MAC football -- the re-MACTIONing

    Couple of good bits of news on the testing front (since really the key to managing this at colleges--and hopefully allowing football to go forward without incident--is testing, testing, testing):

    1) The FDA approved a test from Abbott Labs that costs $5, takes 15 minutes to process, and requires no specialized equipment.  It isn't as accurate as the swab-your-brain tests, but the ease and price make it a lot easier to give them repeatedly, which may offset accuracy issues.

    2) The University of Arizona has good results from wastewater testing, which they used to stop a dorm outbreak in its tracks.  We know from Europe that COVID starts showing up in stool before people are symptomatic, so Arizona tests wastewater at all of its dorms.  Every student had to test negative before they moved in.  A few days ago, COVID showed up in wastewater from one dorm.  The school then tested every single student in the dorm, found two asymptomatic students out of about 300, and put them in an isolation dorm until they've gone through a quarantine.  The wastewater is once again running negative, suggesting that early detection through poop can help prevent mass outbreaks in dormitories.

  • MIAMI BOWL PICTURE

    Army is 9-2 and won’t get a bowl bid. Due to cancellations of some ESPN-owned bowls, slots guaranteed to losing teams from other conferences still have to be filled in the existing bowls. Army is shut out as a result.

  • More bad news coming

    I dunno.  I think showing up to a place with objects to be used as weapons is a clear starting point.  lol 


    The tumor on campus is the fraternity brothers pulled the weapons and the football players pulled a 180 by snatching them away and using them against the brothers. If that’s the case, they didn’t show up with weapons.
    IT'S NOT A TUMOR
