    Also, next weekend's series with the Beavers at Mankato is up in the air right now.
    Wonder if BSU and Tech could take a page from the Pac-12 and schedule each other for this upcoming weekend instead.

      Well that blows on multiple levels. I suppose this means Bemidji also has to quarantine?
      It should mean that but i'll wait and see if it does mean that.

        My Flo subscription is getting a workout.
        I watched the last 10ish minutes of the OSU-Minnesota game tonight. That "crowd noise" is annoying as *******. It's like they took the soundtrack from NHL 95 and play it on repeat.

        • It's sounding like Ferris may have to pull out of next weekend too.

            This isn’t looking good. Feels like the WCHA is going to have no choice but to shut things down.

              In one respect, yes. But if you're going to have these interruptions, it's better to have them in the non-conference schedule. Right now there is only one WCHA league game affected by these postponements/cancellations.

              • If they keep trying to play, there is no way these interruptions won't keep rolling through the winter until most players and staff have had COVID.

                It would almost be better for each team & staff to all get it at once and then quarantine together for 2-3 weeks, thereby getting it over with for the duration of the season (by which time it's likely they will no longer be immune, as studies are showing). However then you've got these "long-hauler" cases with recurring symptoms and who knows what that might mean for those unlucky enough to be stuck in that situation.

                • According to the Beaver Radio Network, this weekend's series BSU at Mankato has been postponed.

                  • Ferris called off their series with Lake State.

                    LSSU has arranged a home-and-home with Adrian College this weekend.

                      Since it's unlikely that any of the DIII conferences will end up playing, maybe we should just add Adrian to the league for this year Can't believe UAF hasn't called them to see if they wanted to come up there in December so that UAF can play a couple games before New Years...

                        Ha. I mentioned the same thing about Adrian on the BG message board yesterday.

                        • Per Joe Shawhan on his Monday radio show - this weekend's Minnesota State at Michigan Tech series will be played on Sunday and Monday.

                          • BSU and MSU will make up their postponed series from last weekend on Dec 18 and 19

                            • The tally increased to 8 games called off for Northern. They cancelled the December 11-12 series against Minnesota State.

                              • Appears UAF, FSU, and NMU are still in the running for the not-so-coveted WCHA Rust Belt, with FSU holding on to a tenuous 7 day cushion. FSU hasn’t played since Feb 29 while UAF and NMU both laced up March 7.

                                The Nook’s first scheduled game is on the road at LSSU January 1 with 18 underclassmen on the roster and probably with the Rust Belt in hand. But we’re still in 2020 so I’m not counting FSU or NMU out quite yet.
