      That would be great from a fan perspective. I miss the days where media timeouts didn't exist.

      From a business perspective, the smaller radio stations need every media timeout to pay their bills.

        Some of it goes back to the CCHA days. Televised games had one set of timeout rules and non televised had another. Which meant that games at Michigan or State were played differently that games at NMU or the Soo. So the move was made to have all games played under the same standards.

        • Can games still be played if the local hospitals happened to be at full capacity? What if a player, coach or ref has medical issues?

          • Great question. I don't think they have thought about it and even if true they are going to play regardless.

              There would be an absolute zero chance that games are still happening if we reached hospital saturation.

              • Contagious disease cases aren't kept in the same wings of hospitals as injury cases. I am concerned with reports that Governor Walz is going to order suspension of all youth sports tomorrow. That doesn't cover college sports at the moment, but...

                  Michigan has just suspended youth/high school sports for 3 weeks. Ohio isn't far behind as Gov DeWine has been signaling shutting down/restricting business operations again.

                    That may be true with larger hospitals that can have wings, but with a lot of the smaller, outstate critical access hospital, there are no wings. They do try to keep the contagious cases at one end of the hall and the injury cases at another end of the hall, but right now, that is getting to be near impossible. I talked with a nurse the other day who had to transfer a patient and she had to call seven hospitals before they finally found the patient a bed.

                    • Has anyone modified their projected standings based on last weekend's games? How are people with mid week games this year?

                        I am waiting to see another game, but I really like what I'm seeing out of Lake State in goal and on defense. I am worried about fatigue with the schedule being what it is, especially at goal so it was nice to see LSSU play the backup in the 3rd of game 2 and not miss a beat. We'll see how they look on Wednesday against Northern, but I'm pretty happy seeing them only give up one goal over the weekend.

                          Not only mid-week games, but staggered starting times lets me check out all kinds of live action I'd normally miss. This week there are college hockey games 6 out of 7 afternoons/evenings which allows for viewing lots of different teams.

                              Well that blows on multiple levels. I suppose this means Bemidji also has to quarantine?

                                Also, next weekend's series with the Beavers at Mankato is up in the air right now.
