    With their entire state budget in shambles, they’re in a unique situation compared to other schools. I believe one of the solutions to their budget problem is merging campuses/athletic departments. It’s possible both programs fold and a new, third program rises, or since Fairbanks is the flagship their history may be the successor for any combined team in that situation.

    But Jim probably has better insight into that.
    The smart thing would be to fold all athletics at UAF and keep most stuff at UAA. UAF sucks hardcore at all sports not named hockey or riflery and trying to keep sports in a tiny market like Fairbanks is a recipe for disaster.

    But this is the UA system so they’ll do something stupid.

    The one thing to note is that UAA is already at the minimum of sports so who knows.

        The midpoint is Cantwell. Merge them and move them there.

            So Michigan President Mark Schlissel has come out and said the elephant in the room- no students = no sports https://www.freep.com/story/sports/c...us/5252621002/

            Which makes sense, since the athletes are students, not professionals. So they should not be forced to go back w/o other students.

            Although, if there are students on campus, Harbaugh is ok playing in front of nobody.

            (Get Up this morning also mentioned he pointed out that college football is a small part of the university, less than 10%, and the university would be fine w/o sports for a year- but I can't find a quote. I thought that was interesting because it's been posted many more than once that all sports, including football, is a small part of a University's budget. And for most, it's completely independently funded. So university presidents need to focus on the big picture, not football)

              There is some precedent with LIU in merging campuses and splitting the hosting duties for sports, but distance throws a huge wrench into that. 350 miles is a lot different than 25.

              Do you get the feeling that people would unite behind a single Alaska team, or would whichever town that gets left out be resentful?

                Everyone is announcing their plans to come back with in-person classes and some schools are even changing their schedule to limit the time students can go home. But I don't know if I've yet seen a school come out with their proposals if there is an outbreak on campus. Shut it down and send everyone home? Quarantine a specific dorm if that's the source? What happens if it's an off campus student or a frat?

                If a school has to shut down in the middle of October, is that the end of the season? Forfeit the games? Or is the goal just to start with students and then if something happens try your hardest to keep student-athletes around to continue the season?

                  I’ve paid for my gopher football season tickets in full fir this coming fall. Not a peep yet from athletic office, which isn’t surprising.

                  What I’m not going to do is give a cent for hockey tickets until they communicate what they’re doing- I’ll be concerned about what money I get back and sure as heck not sending them more while they hold onto my football money

                    Football is barely a line item on a university’s income statement. Big ten schools get 10-25 times more in grants alone.

                      We have been told as ticket holders that we would either be reimbursed, moved to the next season, or donated- and it would be up to the ticket holder. So I'll be renewing.

                        The hard part is how to bring students to campus in a safe way- considering they are coming from all over the world. If you can find a method to bring in students safely, and then keep them among themselves- there can be on-campus learning. I'm sure schools are figuring out ways to test students to find carriers and separate them for some time.

                        If there are students, then there can be athletics, even without fans.

                        But the top priority for all schools is to get the research back going again and teaching- that's virtually all of the money on campus.

                          If they merge and put the hockey team in Fairbanks then the UA will never get another dime from me. And I’m someone who also attends plenty of volleyball and basketball games.

                          And I’m not the only one who feels that way.

                            Have you seen the vitriol over the years in UAA/UAF series threads? No way.
