I think the process is generally OK, but there are some real issues around the timing of specific primaries and the unreasonable impact they can have.

I can't help but wonder how ESPN or the NCAA would handle this process?

We group the states by region and work our way up from the bottom by electoral college size.  5 regions of 10 states, with primaries every Saturday from February for 10 weeks.   The First primaries would include Vermont, Delaware, New Mexico, North Dakota and Alaska.  The final weekend would be NY, FL, TX, CA and IL.    Make politics fun again!

Bloomberg dropped out, threw his support behind Biden.  Warren taking time to access her campaign after "disappointing" Super Tuesday results.

Well the strategy failed miserably anyway.  Just reinforces the dissatisfaction with him and his message particularly with people of color and those over the age of 29 in the Democratic party.

We are all vote by mail, and now it's postage paid. Very civilized - you can vote in your underwear without causing a ruckus.

Cast my vote in the Colorado primary.  One of the options here is hold on to your mail-in ballot, then you can drop it off in dropboxes around town. I hiked up to the park about a mile away  with my pups where there's  dropbox.  Beautiful sunny warm day.

Super Tuesday got off to a rocky start in Travis County, Texas, where about 30 election judges and workers did not show up for work, called out sick or voiced concerns about catching the coronavirus, forcing several polling centers to open late, an election official said.

LOL, isn't it SELF EVIDENT you would have your own agenda if you were an exceptional anyone?

Here is the trouble with journalists.  They are rarely experts and typically generalists so ex ante inclined to make mistakes but they do read widely.  They tend to defer to academics, scientists and other experts.  Politicians did the same once upon a time too. 

These days, 'exceptional Americans' have their own agenda.

i don't necessarily have to do any winning (except maybe in the rp pigskin pickem')

it's the take all part that i fear

too much power concentrated in too few hands

My guess is he's only similar to trump in the eyes of the radical left/socialist crowd.
