I doubt those sports have a season, but at least NYSPHAA hasn't completely pulled the plug yet. What was SUNYAC's (and other conferences) rush?
    There rush was so they didn't have any stress or responsibility to deal with,or just straight up cowardess,or all of the above.....Follow the Norwich example ,play and see what the future brings.

    RIT reconsidering is wild to me...They were the first D1 program to announce...eight more join them and then they announce they are considering walking it back. Just completely shocked me.

    Agreed. A needed adjustment IMO. Last year's results notwithstanding, I felt that Hobart has been able to "bully" the Cadets a little bit, physically, since their arrival. Increased size, with the retention of the speed you mentioned, should make the Cadets even more dangerous. It's going to be exciting to watch...whenever it is.

    Its not like watching from my corner, but it is way more fun than having none at all (even listening to Tanner....)

    As you can see things change daily if not hourly right now. Vermont has seen a very large spike in cases that has caused the State to lock things down pretty tightly here to include multi-household gatherings are suspended, even for Thanksgiving...unless you live alone.

    Univ. of Vermont just announced basketball and hockey schedules won't begin until Dec. 18 at the earliest. Men's hockey was supposed to open up this weekend and just announced last night they won't be anymore, and that first game was five days away.

    The only thing that is official right now is Norwich won't play until 2021. Other than that, nothing else is decided.

    Will be really interesting to see how that position works out. Obviously big pads (Aubrun's) to fill.
