      Some neighboring schools to Ivy members are preparing to play some games, but it seems like concern regarding current COVID-related statistics in the Northeast is the bigger immediate threat to college sports.

        11% of college hockey teams have been shut down before the season gets started.

          Hey now, let's give credit where credit is due. RIT canceled its schedule long before the Ivy League erased its schedule. RIT was the first domino, not the Ivy League.

            True, but it was only two days before the Ivy League announcement. Also, keep in mind that, unlike the Ivies, RIT is Division III in its other sports. Another Division III conference, NESCAC (Amherst, Wesleyan, Williams, etc.) canceled all winter sports in early October, weeks before the league RIT's other sports are in.

                Harvard Basketball had 3 kids on campus this fall....tough to have a team with numbers that low.

                Cal State Northridge Women's Hoops players opted out from the season. https://gomatadors.com/news/2020/11/...n-2020-21.aspx

                  I am going to look at this selfishly. Let schools and conferences cancel until there are only 16 teams left as long as one is LSSU. I really want the Lakers NCAA tourney drought to end.

                    That's assuming a 16 team tournament. I doubt we see that this year. Probably a modified tournament with maybe 12 teams for a year. Waiting on NCAA for that. If you did that you could have 2 sites. Easier to manage than 4. If no fans maybe they do on campus.

                      Agreed 100%. I wouldn't have expected anything less.

                          Many D-III conferences (6 or 8, I can't remember) have already cancelled winter sports, now including the Liberty League. RIT chose not to exempt the hockey programs from that cancellation. There is a petition from the players to re-instate the team, but I can't see that happening the way things are going in Upsate New York right now.
                          Another potential wrinkle for the ECAC is that 4 of their remaining 6 schools are also Liberty League members (RPI, CC, StL, Union). Have we heard any official word from any of those schools about whether the hockey teams can continue to compete? If something happened to them, the ECAC regular season may get a little monotonous with Colgate playing Quinnipiac every weekend. Not much suspense for who makes it to the championship game.
                          Can't we all just get along?
                          Always remember... This is just a game we're talking about here. Let's not take it all too seriously.

                            As a Harvard season ticket holder this is disappointing, as you could space all the fans that attend by 6 feet and have plenty of space left over.
