    Re: Coronavirus

    Uw Chancellor Becky Blank at a press conference just now (as best I can quote) "the game at Labahn this weekend will, as of now, almost certainly be played... with some form of limited audience attendance".

    Lots of wiggle room and vague language. But that sounds like no fans to me. :-(

      Why the two opposite opinions by Northeastern and the NHL when both say they've been in contact with the CDC?
      Here's the Jacket's release

      These type of inconsistencies don’t help anybody. Pro sports should be taking the lead on this stuff as there crowds are typically larger than the college crowds.

            I think we're on the brink of some big announcements here. The Ivy is cancelling all athletic competition for the academic year. So......

              Looks like we can jump right to the semifinal round:
              Mercyhurst vs. Wisconsin
              Northeastern vs. Minnesota/Ohio State winner
              Minnesota Golden Gopher Hockey

                This is getting fricking ridiculous! Schools are showing how much they follow/promote the liberal agenda!

                  Christ, shut up, seriously. We all think the other side is stupid. We get it. Let's stick to facts regarding these events in this thread please.

                  The Ivy thing appears to for now only apply to spring sports, however the NCAA announced that all tournament events for all sports are going to be played with no fans: https://twitter.com/marcatracy/statu...38884848852992

                    Clarkson isn't an Ivy, so it wouldn't be bound by an Ivy League decision.

                      There is no crying emoji available, otherwise I would have just posted that. My apologies for offending your delicate sensibilities!

                        Holy crap! No fans for March Madness. Crazy! (But likely the right decision)

                          Yes, it's sad that someone's one shining moment has to take place in an empty arena. But you're right, sports isn't life and death, much as we try to make it so.

                              Watts are you talking about!? Speak for yourself. Some famous old dude said, "Give me hockey or give me death". I subscribe to his thinking.

                                Not me. We need Arlen, or Grant, or Nicole to make that happen! No question they'll come through... right? :-)
