    The colleges have a month to figure this out. The Santa Anita racetrack has pulled it off, but can kids this age adhere to whatever protocol is established? I'm not sure they can, but I am sure hoping. I'm encouraged by the reports coming out of Denmark regarding bringing the kids back to school and how Denmark took a chance this Spring in bringing the students back to school and it all worked out.

    Reports are appearing about college football players having COVID-19 at UCF, Florida State, Alabama, Texas Tech, Iowa, Iowa State, Arkansas State and Auburn. The articles don't give much in the way of details of when the players were tested vs when they arrived back on campus.

    I suspect many (like me) are taking a 'wait and see' approach, both with respect to the virus being under control and a final schedule that is committed to.

    That's the company line, the reality is that you can't keep summer in a box in NYC. I watched CNN and Fox over the weekend and there were thousands milling about and they were not protesting. There were even impromptu bands playing on the news.

    In contrast, UM sent out season ticket renewal notices in April without any information as to dates, times, or opponents. And yes, I did renew our tickets.

    FWIW (which is apparently how I start all my posts now) Duluth has posted half a schedule for 20-21. Dates and opponents for games to be played in Duluth, including a series against Robert Morris. No listing at all for any road series, conference or non-conference.

    Really an odd way to handle it, but as I said, FWIW.

    No restrictions leads to colleges reopening and college sports.

    It's looking good right now, but all these non-social distancing demonstrations are not doing us any favors on this front.

    Bemidji State announced today they are bringing everyone back to campus on schedule. Students will be one to a dorm in many of the dorms and many classes will be "remote". Hockey may indeed be right around the corner!

    Hockey Canada still hasn't decided what the regular season will look like for minor hockey (boys and girls), so far everything is on hold. No registrations for the fall, no tournaments approved.....nothing.

    The only thing we've heard from the OWHA (Ontario Women's Hockey Association) is that we will be able to register players sometime in June but without collecting any fees. Hoping to have more clarity on what the season might look like by the end of June.

    Following Canada's lead on National teams and camps. In addition, Canada has cancelled all stay over camps and still have not made a decision on day camps.
