the U.S. has probably had the WORST response of any major country.

I think you should ask the folks in Italy or Spain or China if they agree with you.  I don't think we're in a position yet to judge who had better responses or not, to be honest.

Well, itís starting to break down here. People are getting sick of the stay at home measures (and losing their jobs and life savings) when only 48 people in the whole country have died of the virus and the recovery rate is running better than 50:1, for every person who succumbs to pneumonia from this bug, 53 are recovering.  And that, of course, is just for those people sick enough to be tested.  And only 2% of those being tested are coming back with Ďrona, the other 98% having some other bug.  So patience is starting to run very short.  The overwhelming majority of infections, over 70%, are directly traceable to international and cruise travellers who entered the country improperly when the govt failed to enforce/follow itís own travel and quarantine rules. The bureaucrats arenít covering themselves in glory.

On the good news side, Denmark, Austria and Norway have announced they are starting to relax stay at home measures to various degrees including reopening schools next week or the week after, depending on the country. Even Italy announced they are looking to reopen now but havenít given timings yet. Australian politicians are particularly stubborn, a$$-covering weaklings so they will stay locked down for two weeks longer than anyone else despite the Australian health system barely being inconvenienced by the bug, the whole purpose of the lockdown in the first place.

The straw that may have broken the camelís back here was when the police pulled over a 16-year-old out practicing driving with her mum and gave the girl a $1600 fine for unnecessarily leaving her house.  The premier soon intervened and dismissed the fine to prevent pitchfork and torch riots but then said they would continue to hand out fines to people learning to drive.  Mindlessness rules the roost at Parliament House and soon must give way to better sense.

Anyways, hereís hoping the US soon eases restrictions, particularly outside of NYC so that the rest of the world feels safe to follow and do the same.

https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2020-04-06/denmark-joins-austria-in-easing-virus-curbs-as-europe-cases-slow

A couple of points:

NYC may have already maxed out - the numbers seem to have plateaued or even begun to decline.  But other hot spots are still sky-rocketing - e.g., New Orleans and Detroit are still climbing and may well pass NYC on a per capita basis.  (In Michigan, Governor Whitmer is hopeful that we'll turn the corner in late April/early May, but predictions are still iffy.)

OMG, I sure hope the rest of the world is not looking to the US for leadership on this!  Memos recently leaked from the White House that as early as January they knew how bad it could get, yet they were still down-playing the whole thing well into March - not JUST publicly (which was bad enough), but doing absolutely nothing to get equipment ready.  The result has been dozens of first-responder deaths, due to no protection.  Aside from China's early (and continuing?) cover-up, and Brazil's total dismissal of the whole pandemic, the U.S. has probably had the WORST response of any major country.

As far as recruiting goes, there doesn't seem to be a dropoff in quality players. I like the way Dartt is focusing on good Online (no surprise), QBs and LBs.

I "kinda" remember in the past where LK would recruit a LOT of QBs and then convert them to other positions when they got to MTU.  Safeties, LBs, WRs, etc.

That applies to far more college coaches than just LK.  At many (most?) high schools, aside from the big bruisers on the lines, the best athlete (regardless of specific talents) would automatically play QB.

Stout schedule is up.
https://athletics.uwstout.edu/schedule.aspx?path=mbball

Good news out of Menomonie: Jackson Noll of undefeated Cuba City and son of Mark Noll and grandson of AAU's Keith Noll is coming to UWStout. Great shooter, great work ethic and just an outstanding young man.  Lots of friends in Menomonie who will enjoy watching Jackson play here.

I believe Hope is hosting the Hope, Calvin, Aquinas, Cornerstone thing this year.

I think Hope will have done well to arrive at that date with more than 0 wins and 4 losses.  ;) :-X
