    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.

    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.

    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.”

    RPI is the first team that really counts.

    There is another nasty virus spreading sucking the logic out of people's brains. Not directed at you but the powers that be at the time.

    It's really a dead discussion now because even if they had played last weekend and got to a final 4 teams, there's no way as of today the FF was going to happen.

    Their leadership in doing this is admirable. They will be looked upon, as the leader they are, to continue to put saftey first and opt out early on an annual basis going forward.
    And don't forget, each year making opting out easier by contributing one or two top tier players to the NC$$ transfer portal.

    For scholarship players, the school has fulfilled its commitment to the student athlete to pay for the student to attend school this year. So I could see schools saying- ok you have another year of eligibility but we already gave you the money so if you want to use your eligibility next year it’s on your dime. That will severely limit the number of students who return. And it’s not unfair from that perspective except that it totally sucks for them as an athlete.
    FWIW, apparently the NCAA is discussing temporarily increasing scholarship limits in affected sports.

    Which means you really can't continue with classes, because you have thousands of students mingling in the same lecture rooms, hallways, unions, etc. Once the classes are canceled, what sort of message would it send to have practices and games continuing? I don't like it, but I fully support it.
