    I know all the uncertainty has to be extra hard for Mercyhurst fans in a season where Mercyhurst was set to host the national tournament. Penn State is hosting it next season and I know how disappointed I'll be if things aren't ironed out by then. I wonder if Mercyhurst would automatically get the next open slot for hosting the tournament if it doesn't go this season.

    That's been my thought for a while, too. Women's hockey in particular is not the money sport that football is, and I can't see schools working overtime to make a season for them.

    Yes, I do think it is possible to have a sixth year in regards to Brenneman. If they don't play.... that is.
    Penn State should retire her number if she comes back as a sixth-year senior!

    I'd assume would be the same for winter sports assuming it does not happen or is a shortened season, etc.

    This opens up a different problem - the logjam. What happens to incoming freshman recruits? The key thing that jumped out was that the seniors would not count against scholarship totals. Not sure if all schools could afford that but at least 'promises made' could be honoured.

    A serious roster logjam, for sure. With scholarships over for fifth-year seniors, I assume there would be no requirement for them to be officially enrolled academically...they just come back to play a season of hockey.

    College players last year did not get an extra year of eligibility because there were no championships. I'd have to see that in writing for sure before I bought into that rumor. As far as the rest, all seems plausible.


    Lots of questions remain unanswered - the Big Ten does not have a hockey conference, what happens when you play a non-Big Ten School. The Big Ten has oodles of protocols and others don't. The travel would be far and more costs and etc etc.

    Meanwhile, I hear lots of girls stayed home.. I looked at Harvard and they have six girls on their roster.

    Zamboni I hope you are right! To get started safely in November would be amazing. I truly hope the NCAA tourney can be played. WoHo has experienced so many set backs the past few years, dating back to the cancellation of the CWHL... it’s just been one thing after another. Nothing folks can do but keep going but wow it would be great to see a high level tourney happen.

    This is what I have heard and it is only rumor. There is going to be a season, originally it was supposed to start in January. Though things have changed a little bit with football coming back and Basketball not postponing.I am hearing rumors of a November start conference play only. If there is a full season with a NCAA tournament there will be no extension of eligibility. If there is no NCAA tournament then the players will get another year. Players who opt out due to covid do not lose any eligibility it is like taking a redshirt.

    If this season ends up being a wash, does the entire roster get a redshirt? I can't help thinking of Jenna Brenneman, who is already a fifth-year senior in this "maybe" season. Has there ever been a sixth-year senior?

    Pro football played tonight with some fans in the stand. The Big Ten is reviewing fall football. Meanwhile Penn State halted a couple of sports - not sure which ones, but it went by on a news stream. It's sure looking like a lost year for hockey.

    More of a real honor this way. And for those not named, they have reason to feel less disappointed.

    Penn State has announced the captains for the (maybe) 2020-21 season, and this season it's not half the team:

    What in this context is the difference between soccer and women's hockey in terms of contact? Is he being sexist in not recognizing the difference between men's and women's hockey?

    He has a BIG10 mentality and a BIG10 Ego.

    He is an idiot. USA hockey cleared hockey to resume and its being played everywhere in the US and Canada. He's more concerned about waiving his 14 day quarantine rules for California celebrity democrats for the VMAs than what his citizens need. Still the league leader in dead nursing home residents by a wide margin. Follow the science until it doesn't fit your narrative.
