S.Weinberg listed three kinds of microscopic resonances:
(The Quantum Theory of Fields, Cambridge Univ. Press, 1995, Vol. I, p.159.)
(1) Strong interaction particles decay through electroweak interaction, neutron, hyperons, pion, kion, etc.;
(2) Potential barrier tunnel, alpha decay;
(3) Statistical fluctuation, compound nucleus.
S. Weinberg did not discuss these resonance,
such as rho, omega, Delta, etc. in his book.
I think the slow down of the decay of these
resonances are due to creation in their decay

Suppose these lattice QCD results are qualitatively correct, then multi-quark system is a many body interaction multi-channel coupling problem.
A comparative calculation of the ground state energy of 2,4,6,9,12 quark systems by two body confinement and color string are shown below.(n=3 baryon masses of N and ∆ has been used to fix model parameters, Nuovo Cimento, 86A(1985) 283.)

from the string ones. So the two body confinement interaction
might be a good approximation to be used to calculate the
diagonal matrix elements of multi quark systems.

Based on the above understanding, we take Isgur model as our starting point, but modify it for multi quark systems by two new ingredients:
1. The confinement interaction is re-parameterized aimed to take into account the effect of multi channel coupling,
especially the genuine color channels coupling;
2. The quark delocalization, similar to the electron delocalization in molecule, is introduced to describe the effect of mutual distortion.

πtensor interaction in N channel, one quark must be
exchanged to form from N. These factors all suppress
the decay rate and make N quite a narrow resonance.
