    What Dr. Robbins said:

    "I am pleased to publicly announce today our intention to return to in-person classes at the University of Arizona for the fall semester. We will honor all local, state and federal protective measures that apply, and, of course, there are many factors that remain beyond our control. However, we are tackling what is within our control to ensure our students have the opportunity for a full on-campus experience.

    "We have launched antibody testing for the county and will soon begin antibody testing 250,000 health care workers and first responders for the state of Arizona in partnership with the Governor’s Office. Next, we will test our own students, faculty and staff. We are expanding our diagnostic testing capability for COVID-19 infection. In short, we are working with local and national experts to create best-in-class strategies to reopen the campus.

    "Our plan is to Test, Trace and Treat to present our campus community a flexible and adaptive teaching and learning environment."
    This should help everyone.

    I probably should have put that at the end of my statement! Thank you for teeing that up. Gotta shake things up a bit. But its bad in California. Gov. Grewsome said that counties can't get to the next stage of reopening (dine in restaurants etc) until a county has 14 days in a row of no Covid deaths. That may never happen. Ever. They keep moving the goalposts. The original excuse was to "flatten the curve" to allow hospitals to ramp up. Well, they did. Now they are ramping down and some are going out of business. Then it was until we have a vaccine. Recently it is until we have multiple vaccines and those may not even work. Then there is the testing and tracing. Well, there is plenty of testing capability but no one uses it.

    For those Cal State sports programs (and any schools that don't reopen or have sports) the transfer portal will fill up fast as players move to schools that are open and playing. It could decimate sports programs at those schools that don't open.

    More specifically for us on this site, women's hockey, I would venture to guess that many if not most women's hockey college students in the north east, especially in the New York region, have already had it based on the people I know.

    What they should do is test all of the players for antibodies. There likely is herd immunity already in that confined group.
    I hear ya!

    They're leaving wiggle room to be able to still have sports in some fashion. https://www.usatoday.com/story/sport...ll/3121272001/

    Hmmm. After spending March to August with the parents at home in quarantine or kids taking a chance and going back to school even with social distancing ....

    Yes, it is unfortunate for the Seniors, who now maybe at home even longer.

Professional sports will be able to start back up without fans at some point, I hope in this fall. College I'm not so sure.
    I'm betting the WCHA may only play a conference schedule the next two seasons. This year they'll do it to minimize travel and exposure (I've already heard teams are considering canceling their trips out East this season) and in 2021-2022 they'll have to do it due to budget cuts created by lower enrollments in 2020-2021. This year's budgets are set but '21-'22 will be set based on predicted/actual '20-'21 financials.

    Yesterday, Purdue said the students are coming back in the fall. That's big news. The Pres of Purdue says "students of this age are almost zero risk." That's a huge school.

    Unlike fantasy football, which depends on the results of actual games played, fantasy women’s hockey is likely to remain true fantasy, untethered to the results of any actual games played.
