And finally, Brown is adding two varsity sports, women's sailing and coed sailing.

    Correct... I just figured this was the more appropriate thread for the article. No "misdirection" intended. Just an article about a school and that they are keeping hockey which, according to the thoughts of many on this thread, would be one of the first sports to go. That is all.

    Dawn Staley, South Carolina BBall coach, was on EsPN radio this morning and the school is bringing back basketball players July 1 and listening to the steps they will take is going to be interesting and complicated. But, they are going to try it out. Football goes back on June 8. It is interesting how basketball can go back, but not hockey since they are the same season.

    Love the Charlie Vincent information. I was watching Santa Anita Horsetrack today for one race and the Track Personnel are quarantining together. I'm interested in seeing how the model works and maybe other sports can copy it if it goes okay.

    Re: Coronavirus

    Memorial Day weekend. Funny how all those guys are still so young in my memories, even Vincent Charlie. For those of you who have not been in a war zone, this is not a bad approximation. You know you will probably die, just not when or how. The next person you see – if you see him - might be the one who carries your death, and there is no place to hide with no end in sight. Watching the mobs on the beaches, in the parks, and in the bars doesn’t show me anyone whom I would have at my back. No problem, though. They have all volunteered to walk point and Charlie Vincent will sort them out for me.

    Tim, I’m sure you realize that the only age group with any testing at all for “underlying conditions” is seniors. Generally, no one gets tested until they have a BHE (bad health event, my term), and so no one has any idea how long the condition has existed. Twenty years ago, during a BHE, my wife discovered she had celiac sprue. Did that just kick in when she hit 50? Of course not. She can look back at events in her life that were obvious signs of the disease, but she was never tested for it. Ten years ago, during another BHE, she discovered she has heart disease. Again, she is able to look back at events from even her early life and realize that they were signs of the disease. When you think about it, how often does a baby go to sleep and never wake up, or a kid drop dead playing a sport? When your doctor describes these as rare, she’s not saying the disease is rare (they don’t know without testing), only that deaths attributable to the disease are rare. Those people thinking they are immune to dying from Charlie Vincent because of their age are just whistling in the dark. I hope they are correct, but I don’t believe it. In fact, you can determine what doctors think by watching what they do. The fact that they are taking extraordinary steps to keep their family members of all ages from getting CV tells you all you need to know.

    Stay safe and enjoy your family!

    Now we know why Northern Michigan is open plus boating...the governor has a second home and a boat. The Gov's husband called a boat company and said he was the Gov's husband and wanted to go-to the front of the line and they said you can goto the end of the line since we are three weeks behind because of the lockdown.

All of this leads me to believe that more likely than not, assuming no catastrophic explosion of cases, most schools and sports will start in the fall in one form or another. Crossed fingers.
    First the good news (assuming you want hockey): The Belmont Stakes are on without fans June 20th. Northern Michigan will be open for the summer including restaurants and bars. The Same with Put-in Bay. University of Southern Maine is bringing kids back in the third week of August. Virginia opened the Beaches for this weekend after restrictions last weekend were all but ignored.

    Now the bad news: Ithaca College says they are returning for the fall on Oct 5. Hmmmm.
    Colgate and Cornell are in that vicinity.

    The Canadian border is closed to at least June 21.

    After reading the above, holy mackerel on the amount of hoops that will have to be jumped through in order to have sports.

    Scholarships are year to year unless you are Big Ten which is for four years. This could get ugly in a hurry. I know of a player at the D 3 level last year who got hurt over the summer and was told to stay home as they had no money for her this past year and come back in a year.

    Furman University in S Carolina just cut their D1 baseball & men’s lacrosse programs. Students will continue to be on scholarship as long as they are enrolled. Dominoes may be starting to fall, sadly.
