NCAA with two statements this afternoon.

1. All D-I coaches are banned from conducting in-person recruiting until April 15th, at the earliest.

2. The NCAA is exploring "eligibility relief" for student athletes who participate in Spring sports. It is unknown what this relief will entail exactly, and if some Winter sports, like basketball, will be given this opportunity.

15,700 total cases in Florida . Not current cases. Total cases. As of this morning there are 14,000 plus deaths in the U S. . Social distancing has worked. A few more weeks will make all the difference. Don't let the media scare you.  This will coast to a stop and then we .ca. live our lives again. I hate the media. All lean one way or the other. Stay safe. Happy Passover to my Jewish friends. And happy Easter  to my Christian friends. Be smart.
