    Yup, read that statement but had not seen an official UM statement until I posted. The wife and I fall into the high risk category and had already decided against attending. This way, though, we might get our tickets refunded.

    ESPN just predicted all college sports' games will be cancelled after tonight. Just a guess based on the NBA, and Hoiberg looking terrible on the Nebraska bench, but ESPN's announcers get paid for their opinion.

    I would assume that pertains to commercial travel. Women's hockey and men's basketball, I am sure, travel on charter flights, such that this will likely not apply. But we should know soon; at least by the end of the day.

    Again, I predict the NCAA will not fund private charter flights.

    Fairly sure UW wouldn't care. (And it is quite possible that NCAA says to a school "here's your flight money, spend it how you want." Cannot imagine them saying "no, we require you to fly commercial.")

    I'll see if I can find any photos etc, on the UW Women's team twitter account of their travel last year etc. They love posting photos and videos of the team travelling.

    Adding: a video on their instagram of them getting on the plane headed for 2019 Frozen Four. Quite obviously a private, chartered plane; quite obviously not a commercial flight.

    When it gets to NCAA Championship events the NCAA has chartered jets to move all the Basketball teams around the country. Hockey teams (Both Men and Women) I know for DIII are moved around with idle jets as available. Any school that wants to travel at a different time than when the jets are available needs to pay the difference which 10+ years ago was $ 30,000 or more.
