    Euro 2020 day 2 game thread: Waiting for Lukaku

    my wife rolled her eyes at that. She said the medics did a fantastic job. I asked the question about CPR and the AED. She said the assumption in the question was wrong and gave a 10 minute explantion, of which I understood about 9 words. I think the responses upthread more or less correspond.

    Euro 2020 day 2 game thread: Waiting for Lukaku

    I showed my wife the picture and she is overjoyed. The mask he is wearing can only be used when he is breathing on his own. She assumed he was intubated. He is not. He has an IV. She said they must have gotten him back quickly and then were working to stabilize him, which is very good news...

    Euro 2020 day 2 game thread: Waiting for Lukaku

    I asked her many of the questions that have been asked here. She said it isn't that they can't do CPR during transport. The issue is that stopping CPR while they turn him on his side, get the board/stretcher under him, and positioned - just those few seconds of stopping CPR is enough to have...

    Euro 2020 day 2 game thread: Waiting for Lukaku

    My wife is a paramedic. She is an on field paramedic for a major D1 football school with several years of experience. She is watching this with me. What they are doing is the best medical practice. It used to be that they would extract the patient ASAP, but research has shown that any gaps...

    Euro 2020 day 2 game thread: Waiting for Lukaku

    my wife and I are watching this. She is a paramedic. She said modern best practice is to not extricate and to keep working the patient for up to 40 minutes, even if it is in front of the crowd.

    Non-revenue college sports thread

    It is hard to underestimate what a complete and total disaster the Patterson hire was, pretty much from Day 1. CDC isn't perfect and had some missteps around the EOT drama and some self inflicted wounds with the handling of Herman's job situation, but he is a competent administrator who...

    Non-revenue college sports thread

    women's volleyball finished national runner up. Men's and Women's track won the Big 12 in both indoors and outdoors conference championships. Women's golf finished #5 in the country and went to the wire during stroke play losing to the eventual national champion. Men's tennis lost in the...

    Bubblicious - The Syracuse Basketball Thread

    With that lineup, their ceiling is fringe top 25 team with upset potential on nights they get hot from 3. As long as Boeheim and Girard are the starting backcourt, Syracuse has a low ceiling. Those two simply are not athletically capable of beating anyone off the dribble or creating for anyone...

    Texas Football: Tom Herman Out, Steve Sarkisian In

    No taxpayer or tuition money is being used for the DKR expansion. My spouse works for the UT athletic department.

    2020 NCAA Football

    yes, they were. The players came in three phases. Upperclassmen in the Austin area reported for testing on 6/8. The rest of the players from outside the Austin area reported 6/15. The newly enrolled freshmen came 6/18. Every morning they are required to fill out a screening assessment and...

    The Last Dance

    The P-L-O chant was at Arizona State. It's still one of the first things I associate with that school. Every last one of those students should have been kicked out of school.

    Bubblicious - The Syracuse Basketball Thread

    The game has passed Boeheim by in that Bowden at Florida State way. The program is stale and sliding into irrelevancy. Recruiting has gone down, development has stalled out, and the guy who should be coaching the team is racking up McDonald's All Americans at Washington. It's gonna be an ugly...

    2019 Longhorns Football

    I went to the fair last year during the game, but didn't get inside the stadium. I had my grade school aged kids with me, and it was hot as hell, but I managed to catch a good chunk of the game (and pretty much the entire 4th quarter) in between doing fair stuff. I enjoyed the experience, and...
