  • How would you describe what it is this year, what it is about and how what what the most important things are.

  • It's day today.

  • I mean, today we might be playing tomorrow.

  • We won't be.

  • It's, uh, you know, the CDC and this one test and you're out.

  • The team is out.

  • I don't think it made sense for basketball teams.

  • I think you have to look at each case individually.

  • We try to isolate our players so that if one gets positive, the other players have been around that much.

  • That's hard to do.

  • But if we don't get some balance in this, you're going Every week there's going to be 10 games changed and then the biggest concern.

  • Once you quarantine, which happened to us, you didn't practice for 14 days.

  • Well, any semblance of what you're doing and the players can't work out.

  • You know they can't come into gym workout, so it's really 14 days off and now you gotta play basketball and, uh, you know, we played a good team.

  • So Bryant was a very good thing.

  • We could have lost to them any time, but it just being out of sync completely.

  • It's hard to play basketball.

  • And then if you're in the season and you get 14 days sabbatical and for us, we could come back the second day and play it Duke.

  • I mean, we can't probably be, too if we practice for 14 days, but if you have 14 days off, you're not going.

  • You probably can't be competitive in that situation.

  • I noticed the CDC has said something about, well, maybe only a seven day or 10 day quarantine that that would be a little better, but I haven't seen any movement on that.

  • But this is a very difficult time.

  • Our players have worked hard.

  • We've had 700 tests since we got back in school and we've had just two positives.

  • So really, our players air doing well.

  • They're taking care of themselves and their staying away from social gatherings.

  • But still it can happen and two of our coaches, including me, I went out to dinner a couple nights and that's where you know I got.

  • I mean, all of our are positives has come from outside the program in town or someplace, and it's just, you know, I felt great.

  • It's just one of those things.

  • Some people that are healthy just don't have any effect by this.

  • And the thousands of athletes across the country who have tested positive in in college sports have all come back strong.

  • All the professional golfers and the professional football players who tested positive have come back strong.

  • So this obviously is something that really affect older people and people with conditions, and it kind of touches younger people.

  • But it seems like they're they're able to bounce right back and be good, so but the only solution is a vaccine, because this is such a communicable disease.

  • Get it anywhere, anytime and spreads like wild flower.

  • So until we get everybody just treated and get the vaccine and established that, I mean we're looking till next year, all before we can get back to normal.

  • In the meantime, we're gonna try to play like footballs doing play as many games as we can.

  • The players want to play, and there don't seem to be any negative results if they are tested positive.

  • So I think we should try to play and try to get the season in.

  • But it's gonna be challenging.

  • Uh, will be very difficult something's may play 20 years.

  • Some might play 25.

  • Some may play 15 or 12, and, uh, we just have to get through the double.

  • A was very good to the players.

  • They can all come back if they want to and play next year, which I think is good.

  • There's gonna be some things coming in the future for players in college basketball, the ability to transfer and play right away.

  • It will be chaotic, but it'll be good for players.

  • The N I l of the players being able to get endorsement money will be chaotic, but it will be good for players.

  • So I think a lot of good things they're gonna happen for players moving forward in college basketball.

  • And I think that Za good thing is there will be some problems.

  • But you know, we'll have to adjust to it.

  • Players not happen.

  • He wants to leave.

  • He has that ability to go someplace and play right away.

  • Um and coaches will adjust to it like they've adjusted to everything, but certainly it will cause some chaos.

  • You know, if you're not playing or playing a little bit, you can play someplace else.

  • You're gonna, you know, leave.

  • But I think it will work out.

  • I think it will be difficult, but I think it will work out.

  • My main concern is trying to get this team through this year as best as we can and they've been great.

  • They've worked hard.

  • They've done everything we've asked and, uh, you know, they're trying to play this season.

  • Onda, Uh, that's all you can ask of players today.

  • They their biggest fear is not being able to play.

  • Yeah, they they want to play.

  • That's what they want to dio.

  • And I know there's thoughts out there by everybody.

  • Well, it's stuff that you shouldn't do this or you should pause.

  • I don't think there's any solution other than to try to play through this.

  • Um, schools have been a no unbelievable amount of money testing players.

  • We test our players three days a week and some more, and I think that we're trying to get people in school.

  • It was great to see the CD should come out and say Kids are better in school.

  • And I think that's true at all levels of school right through college.

  • I know my son is a Cornell.

  • He had to be home a lot this year.

  • He's sick about it.

  • He's a senior, he wants to be in school.

  • And Cornell is one of the few schools in the outer.

  • Really, I think it's just, too that he was at school the whole semester.

  • He was down there on uh, they survived.

  • But I believe we have to get kids in school at all ages and there's challenges.

  • But what kids are missing.

  • I know in the city of Syracuse, 50% of the kids in the city schools don't have computers and WiFi Ah, what's happening to them and in kids their age will aren't dying from this, but I think they're dying by not being able to go to school.

  • It's been a year, almost a full year now, without being in classes and how long can that last and kids that be suffer irreparable harm.

  • Thank you for watching ESPN on YouTube for live streaming sports and premium content.
