    Regarding the western DIII conferences; sounds like the NCHA will have an AD/Presidents meeting next Friday. The Midwest Conference -- who St. Norberts, Lake Forest, and Lawrence University are members of -- just canceled winter sports. Rumor is that those ADs are saying they highly doubt that they can allow hockey to play if none of the other sports are allowed to play.

    WIAC is meeting soon as well and expectation is they will cancel. Finally, the MIAC leadership is meeting in the next two weeks and, if expected, Walz extends the current pause on athletics through Jan. 1 and possibly even later, the MIAC will likely cancel as well.

    For those that haven't seen it yet, here's an article from the Washington Post on the probability that hockey is likely the riskiest of all sports to play from a Covid standpoint. It's a very interesting read and I highly recommend reading it.

    can always count on the washington COMPOST for their unbias opinion....

    St Norbert recently left the Midwest Conference after 38 years. They are now members of the Northern Athletic Collegiate Conference (NACC.) Not sure this changes anything regarding Net Presence’s most recent post, but it should be noted that SNC won’t necessarily fall in line with other AD’s from the Midwest Conference.

    Assuming you are in Utica, this is not true. First your insurance should cover the test.

Ive heard this "limited test" rumor too. But I can assure you that they have at least 274...
    We go for testing some miles East, and it is indeed limited to 100 per day @ $100 a pop for asymptomatic people. We've already spent over 1K on it, and we have hospital-grade insurance. (That doesn't mean much, granted... We'd be far better off on Medicaid.)

    This country's response to the pandemic has been uneven, to be polite, and a complete disaster, to be frank.

    I don't think this is behind a pay wall........but please don't give me a hard time if it is.

    I have been away from here most of the fall, just trying to survive this very strange higher education landscape. I am teaching 2 smaller groups of upper level students this fall....so my exposure to students is somewhat limited as far as number of contacts, but I am teaching on-ground, face-to-face. UC has been testing all students and all employees once a week since mid August. We are using pool testing where 12-24 samples are mixed together and sent in for testing. If the pool comes back "hot" the pool members are contacted and sent for rapid testing. I have been informed that on two instances I had COVID positive students in my classes. They went into quarantine and I hoped to stay negative in the next two weeks testing. The 2nd time, where I was exposed to the student more than I might have wished (in 2 different labs in a two day period), after being informed of the exposure, my pool came back hot.....good greif! Fortunately, I was not the positive one in the pool. Things were starting to blow up just before Thanksgiving as the virus had gotten into the residence halls (earlier student cases were predominately off campus students). There were 4 positive pools the night I was called in for further testing.

    The Utica Jr Comets had to pay $50 each test the other day to play hockey but any first responder or essential worker is deemed free at 99% of the testing sites. I will say this, we've had officers from Buffalo who have been quarantined and had to get a test (symptom free) and they were pushed behind (rightfully so) those with symptoms. My 10U daughter had a 101.7 fever, called Urgent Care and was given a rapid test with in 30 minutes (Finger Lakes Region).

    I have a co worker who's inlaws all came down with it. (5 of them) 4 of them with ALL different symptoms and 1 with none. I had a fellow coach who had it and was at SUNY Upstate for 4 days but was more for observation. All lived. All fine.

    Now Bak, as far as SUNYAC goes. While I agree we should be playing, keep in mind New York is the ONLY state that has YET to allow hockey since the original shut down in March. If you think the all mighty is going to let College play when A. He won't even let kids play and B. There's no money to be made in hockey (especially DIII) ...just saying. And yes, this was probably 95% financial based why they aren't playing. It will cost me about $150 every weekend to get myself and my two players tested to just be able to DRIVE 3-4 hours to Pa to play a hockey game...normally against the same team you'd play in league...makes sense right $$

    Not sure what your point is, but this administration has hung us out to dry, and D-3 hockey is truly the least of our worries right about now. Nobody is coming after your guns -and I own three myself- but this virus is going to take down a lot more Americans before Easter. A lot more.
    If you're paying out of pocket for testing at work, you either need better representation, or negotiating skills.

    I work for a company that runs nursing homes, I just got tested for free. Oh and the death numbers are not as bad as is being suggested. The percentage is low. Yes it is a lot of people in total but it is a low percentage of those who contract the virus.

Hey Prez you guys laying out 200k for the season at Norwich????

    Looked close on the scoresheet as well. Any thoughst to the fact that a top team like Adrian,who IS playing,will get more looks from recruits in the upcoming recruiting battles??
    I wonder. It’s such a polarizing topic I bet it’s a wash.

    Adrian was the better team on Sunday. I missed the 1st period, but I feel they controlled the tempo and zone time in the 2nd and 3rd.

There are so many guys out there right now without teams (due to shutdowns).
    I would be shocked if the coast had a season. Its not looking like the AHL will even have a season at this point
