    The Ivies are selling tickets for football in the fall, but I could see them (and RPI) banning fans indoors for winter sports if current trends continue. IMHO that would have long-term damaging effects. Given the great effort schools like RPI have made to keep the infection rates down, however, I can see a compromise scenario where attendance is limited to campus community members. I think I'd be OK with that if they (1) promote it heavily to students as a chance to support the program and get out of their rooms (hopefully increasing student attendance to levels we haven't see in the last decade); (2) utilize the full capacity of HFH so there is some distancing; and (3) continue to televise every home and away game via RPI TV and ESPN+.
    I can't make it to Troy very often, so I've relied upon WRPI and RPITV for live coverage of RPI sporting events for years.

    I look at the football schedule (first game is 11 days away) on the RPIathletics website, and I don't see the links to audio and video of home games, which usually appeared in the past.

    I'm hoping this means they're just waiting until closer to the date of the event before they post those links.

    I'm hoping it doesn't mean that WRPI announcers and RPITV camera operators are considered "external" and will not be allowed to attend the games for the purpose of broadcasting them.

And breakout whatever giveaways I have from previous seasons and cheer on the team. And let’s not forget the women. I will miss their games as well. They are not televised outside of RPITV I assume.
    ESPN+ televises all non-RPI ECAC home games for men and women.

    More upsetting is the fact that we are not even worthy of a response. Two years ago they changed our hard earned incredible season seating (just about on the red line) which we had for 40 years. Seemingly they decided to reserve those seats for their own alumni. We were offered alternative seating behind the goal which was simply not acceptable. i am not holding out any hope hearing from them. Our only hope is that RPI home games will be broad cast on YouTube as in the past and that we can find an occasional announcer willing to do the away games for WRPI.
    BTW I think this team will be OK to start but could come together extremely well over the season and perhaps approach being the beast of the East we became accustomed to years ago. This is a big team with a very good coach and I am looking forward to some real upside potential.

Jenny and I are still waiting here for some response from Princeton as to whether we will be "allowed" to attend any games at Baker Rink (actually only the visit by RPI). We have always been willing to purchase season tickets even if it was for only the one game and donated or gave away the tickets to just about every other game.
