  1. Went to the game. Lots of people left at the 8:00 mark in the second half, but many stayed through the end. Kotsar and Couisnard started arguing with each other in the second half and I think that was a big part of our problem in the second half. Maik had dark circles around his eyes and actually looked kinda sick for the game. He didn't have his usual energy and didn't attack the rim like he usually does. We came back back in the final minutes minutes but imploded and couldn't get the win. We were 28/75 from the field and couldn't make our FTs. The one silver lining is the crowd was into it from the beginning and and at the end. It was, of source, silent when things went flat for us, but that's human nature. On it's own, a two-game skid in the SEC isn't bad this time of year, but it's bad because of the other OOC losses earlier in the year.
  2. Is this something for those of us in the continental United States to worry about or is it more about the lack of health care and over-the-counter meds in other countries?
  3. South Carolina (16-10, 8-5 SEC) opens a two-game homestand on Saturday when it hosts (RV/RV) LSU (18-8, 9-4 SEC) for a 6 p.m. ET matchup at Colonial Life Arena.

  7. Supposed to get some wintry stuff up here tonight, so I didn't go to the game.

  9. The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) regulate and control what diagnosis codes physicians use to diagnose patients. CMS transitioned from the ICD-9 versions of diagnosis codes to those of ICD-10, which are intentionally more detailed and specific, in the 2015 fiscal year. In the ICD-9 system, a physician could just say someone had a broken left arm and that level of specificity was all that was required to get most insurance claims paid. The ICD-10 versions now require a physician to specify what specific part of the left arm was broken before a claim would be paid. My example is an oversimplification, but that is essentially what has caused traditional Medicare claim payments to drop off the past few years. CMS gave healthcare facilities and healthcare software companies a grace period for the 2015 fiscal year whereby only the top-level of the diagnosis tree was required for a claim to be paid, but for FY 2016 started requiring the more detailed levels of the diagnosis trees for claims to be paid. Ironically, the for-profit Medicare HMOs don't require the diagnosis code specificity like traditional Medicare now does. Same for commercial/private insurers. It's only traditional Medicare, but that can be up to 1/4 of a facility's patient mix. Add the uninsured in for another 1/4 and things get really bad from a cash flow standpoint. It has created both a financial and ethical nightmare for many healthcare facilities nationwide. Physicians can be forced into making diagnoses that are not necessarily supported by medical tests for the sake of getting Medicare claims paid. Many resent what they feel is excessive government regulation. CMS will release and mandate diagnosis codes only to be challenged by physician organizations. This can go on for months. The codes become a yo-yo that healthcare software developers struggle to keep up with. The current situation, in con-junction with other things, is causing smaller facilities to close and larger ones to make cuts. A single-payer system consisting of Medicare (universal healthcare/Medicare for all) would cause many healthcare facilities in this country to go under. It would be a worse nightmare than it already is now. I have always been an independent voter that's voted mainly Democratic, but there's no way I will vote for the current round of candidates. They don't have a clue about what's going on in healthcare money right now. Neither party has a clue because they have all been in Washington too long. Many politicians on both sides of the aisle need to go in November.
  10. ABOUT THIS GAME LSU leads the all-time series against the Gamecocks 22-13, but South Carolina is 10-5 against the Tigers in the Dawn Staley, including a current nine-game win streak. Forward Aliyah Boston is three blocks away from tying Alaina Coates' South Carolina freshman season record of 73. Senior Tyasha Harris is three steals away from moving into the program's all-time top 10 in career steals. Tonight is the Gamecocks' Play4Kay game to raise awareness and support for the fight against breast cancer. It is also Pet Appreciation Day with the first 500 fans getting a collapsible water bowl and the Flying Houndz Frizbee Dogs performing at halftime.

  11. Wasn't able to watch the game, but listened to the last few minutes. MSST is just a bad match-up for us and, all other things being equal, this wasn't a bad loss for us. The non-conference games that we should have won earlier in the season were the bad losses for us. Frank was win one, lose one, against Bill Self and the Jayhawks when he was at K State. Not necessarily worried about the home game with MSST down the road. Apparently no one else is, either, because there are only 2,700 tickets left for Saturday's LSU game. https://gamecocksonline.com/news/2020/2/18/mens-basketball-less-than-2-700-tickets-remain-for-saturdays-matchup-against-lsu.aspx
  12. I personally thought Ryan Newman was a goner after seeing the unique hit his car took. Not so the Rocketman. Best sight ever. He was released from the hospital today.
