      At scholarship schools, there isn't something magical about senior seasons when it comes to granting redshirts. Harvard has rules all its own, that lead to injured student athletes withdrawing from school in order to retain a year of eligibility, and I'm not about to try to enter into that realm and make sense of it. For spring sports, the entire roster lost the year. It's not an analogy; it is simply what is.

      I'm not advocating that anything specific should be done. But at the point we're at right now, there isn't anything that can be done that will be fair to everyone. It simply isn't possible, because there is one fewer season of competition and no reduction in student athletes.
      Just saw on Twitter. NCAA Div 2 announcement: “ All spring sport student-athletes will be granted an additional season of eligibility as a result of the cancellation of the spring season. Senior spring sport student-athletes will qualify for an extension of their eligibility clock to use an additional season.”

        Have it on good authority that the odds are quite high that Minnesota will be in complete lock down within the next seven days...maximum.

        Just mentioning to a client four days ago that "who knows, a week from now if this thing starts spinning out of control it could be illegal to be walking the street and if caught you could end up in prison...assuming there's cops on the street to attempt to monitor and enforce such measures". A state of emergency was declared here effective yesterday at 4 P.M. and I just read that "anyone breaking state of emergency orders can face a fine up to $50K, 6 months in jail".

        A lot of this stuff is not difficult to anticipate.

        It would be wise to keep a decent amount of cash safely stored at home because a bank is about the most dangerous place that you can store it...they can be shut down any time...for any number of reasons...which has been the case for at least the last 7 years...(and it would be foolish to rely on electronics)...this virus just compounds the already existing systemic problems in global finances...putting them on steroids soaked in jet fuel and touched off with a match. And you don't want anyone or anything standing between you and your cash when you need it.

          What is a bit confusing as they are still having the boys 16 and 17s. But only keeping the girls 18s. Looking at calendar doesn’t make sense to me....

            First you cancel school, we will revisit it in two weeks, when they know full well that it is really to the end of the year. But, the school officials will say we will revisit this in a month. Same deal here.

              And the selections will be from the National Office.

              They're not happening anyway. Next thing to go will be the USAH annual congress in early June followed soon after by the festivals.

                Further to my last post I just got an email from one of my banks telling me that they, along with other competitor banks, are "temporarily" closing several of their branches.

                They have requested that we limit our visits to their operating branches for urgent services that can only be transacted in person.

                It is starting.

                Stay safe biologically.

                But also stay safe financially.

                      I think it's nuts that interstate flights are still being allowed. There's arrivals from the hot spots coming into Milwaukee every single day. It should be only allowed for medical types.

                      I'll say it right now that the start of the season is in jeopardy.

                      My niece was told she has it. They won't test her unless it gets to the point to where she needs to be hospitalized.

                        Yes, the season is in jeopardy. Kirk Herbstreit, the college football anchor, thinks both pro and college football will not happen this year. If college football does not happen, then hockey is not happening.

                        He was of the opinion that things cannot resume to normal until there is a vaccine. I'm not there yet.....

                          Glad to hear Herbstreit finished his medical degree. I wouldn't use him as any sort of definitive source - he has some history of saying pretty dramatic things for the media attention. I think we're a real long ways away from losing the football (or hockey) seasons.

                                When the number one college announcer is worried about the college season, I listen. For him to even say that means that it is being discussed at the highest levels. I would not go to him for medical advice. Comparing apples to oranges. As far as medical advice, a Chinese Medical Officer just said "it would be a grave mistake to not wear a mask out in public," contrary to what the US doctors say. I think I will listen to the Chinese guy.
