    Re: My team got screwed 2020

    I know that I might get flamed for this, but Norwich really got screwed in this whole deal... #1 in the coaches poll since January 27, 20 of 20 first place votes in the latest poll, top seed in the NCAA tournament, no losses in 2020, last 9 games were consecutive shutouts.

    All in all on the precipice of a greatness and perhaps another National Championship.... and then this.

    WADR, My team got screwed!

    I wish they had played the games in empty arenas.

    What a tragedy.

      I doubt that anyone will flame you while we have much bigger fish yet to fry, but Genny/NU/UC all looked even-Steven on paper, over here in the East. And the Coach's poll was and is a complete non-factor, in any case.

      I was hoping for the empty-arena option as well, but with a critical 50-YO community-acquired case revealed just today a couple of miles from me in the Podunk where I currently reside, I'll actually go so far as to give the NCAA kudos on that call.

      This is going to get a lot worse before it gets better, and it's coming to your town.

      Take that to the bank.

            How do you tell a spring sport freshman/sophomore/junior that he's only going to get three years of eligibility instead of four? If you are going to say "tough luck" to those groups, I think you have to say the same to the seniors. They get an extra year because they lost their last one? Not really fair to the underclassmen.

            As for winter sports, I am really sorry for them, but they should not get another whole year of eligibility. A large number of them were already done (eliminated), many more only lost one game, and so forth.

              I donít see this having a big impact at the D3 level. How many athletes will be willing to pay an additional year of tuition just to play 1 more year of their sport? D1 is a different situation with athletic scholarships, so I would expect it to have a bigger impact there

                    It was more my 8U that was upset. My 11U just means more PS4 time. But what do you do in the mean time? Buy another goalie helmet ...why not?

                        A big factor may be what the job market has to offer for this yearís graduates as well. Putting-in another year of school may be an attractive option! When I graduated (in 1990), the job market was very limited. Didnít land a full time gig until July, and I considered myself quite lucky. Many classmates were still looking well into Autumn. I entertained the thought of continuing my education, but I was so far in-the-hole I had to start bringing-in a paycheck. Unfortunately, it wasnít as big as it could have been, but I was rather desperate at the time.

                          There is, however, a significant portion of college students (athletes or otherwise) who do not graduate in 4 years. Many SAs have an extra semester or year left after theyíve exhausted their eligibility...

                            This is incorrect.

                            ALL spring sports student-athletes are being granted an extra year of eligibility should they wish to use it. Itís basically a free pass for every spring sport student-athlete that this year will not count no matter if you are a freshman or a senior.

                                I think Norwich got screwed. They were 9 games into a streak likely to be never repeated. 9 games without giving up a goal and season ends
                                without validating how good this team is/was. With all due respect to WSP who went undefeated last year and one of the best D3 teams of all eras,
                                this Norwich team took them to OT at WSP home barn. NU got screwed.
