    Jared has summoned me to provide you fine folks with a mailbag to read at home as we all kill time during this pandemic. I'll shoot for a Friday publish and worst-case scenario will wrap it up over the weekend.

    Let's make this a fun one. Now accepting questions!

    In order of most, to least controversial:

    Did Garza lose POY because he's white?

    Is Space Jam a good movie?

    What are you spending your stimulus money on?

    Better idea, who would win in winner take all fight to the death bracket with the star from each movie?

    how would they be seeded? Predator and Robocop are 1 seeds, right?

    Is Bret Oberg the best least-talked about QB in ISU history? His teams were dynamic on offense but had some of the most miserable defenses of all-time.

    Value was on the floor in February and went subterranean in the last three weeks. It was a no-brainer.

    First, to be real, we are not killing time, rather it is killing us! Now, on that peachy note, for some questions:

    Iowa State Sports Related:
    1. Any known cases of coronavirus amoung our athletes or coaches?
    2. Any insights you can offer about how our coaches go about recruiting with the current restrictions/travel issues?
    3. Any planning in place for delayed football season?
    4. Where are the best places to find reruns of epic ISU past sporting events?
    5. Feedback from the experiment with ISU basketball games on ESPN+ (for the record I didn't get the service)?
    6. Insights on how our athletes are working on conditioning with campus and public gyms shut down?
    Non-ISU Sports Related:
    1. Is this virus situation more likely to kill Corona as a beer brand, or alternatively have it rebound and steal market share from Busch Lite?
    2. What old movie have you dug up and watched an actually enjoyed?
    3. What one item are you out of and missing, or most concerned of running out of (besides TP) if we have lock down at home?
    4. With TP now worth it's weight in gold, will we ever go back to TP'ing trees outside someones home, or is there a new tradition to take over?
    5. Most creative ways you have found to invest free time at home?

    Building on @Gunnerclone --

    You must pick three to protect you. The other six will try to kill you.

    How do you pick and why?
