    The Ivy League has cancelled all sports until 2021. Not a shock. Probably the first domino to fall in the chain.

    In today's Albany Times Union, the article covering the Ivy League decision stated that fall sports may be moved to Spring 2021.  Unless the COVID-19 virus tests for participating fall sports athletes at Division 1 schools is virtually nothing, I can see this concept taking off quickly.

    Not sure where to put this but Stanford just eliminated 11 sports including field hockey


    According to the Stamford University press release; the eleven sports will compete during the 2020 - 2021 season.  Other sports eliminated include men's and women's fencing, wrestling, men's volleyball, rowing (two types), and sailing (two types).  Other than the previously mentioned field hockey, none of these sports are currently offered at UAlbany.

    Just for clarity, that is how this country was designed. It is not "becoming" that way. We have 50 independent states, joined together to regulate commerce between the states, and to plan for the common defense. 

    This is why each state has a governor and legislature. It's why the electoral college exists.

    Unfortunately, godanesgo99, at best you have no clue about modern tribalism in American society.  Further, you took my comment out of context, leaving out a much broader statement, that had nothing to do with on how this country was formed. Shame on you.  Sadly, you likely never had the opportunity to take classes from Dr. Catherine Newbold or Dr. Harry Price.  With that said, I do not need a lesson on Constitutional law from you.

    While I still do believe that COVID-19 is more than a flu, I will say that my trust in the gubberment has deteriorated considerably, regardless of aisle. CDC/WHO can't seem to agree on guidelines, Cuomo sends thousands of seniors to their death thanks to his nursing home fiasco, we have reports that for every 1 confirmed case there is likely 10 not confirmed but for sure sick, we keep hearing that labs are screwing up results which is leading to false positives or false negatives (which is doing who knows what to the numbers which are then used to dictate policy), protests are allowed to go on (I realize it is a constitution right and all) with virtually ZERO social distancing (so what if they are wearing masks?) yet people can't have funerals for loved ones or up until recently graduations, etc....what are we doing here? The whole thing has been completely and utterly mismanaged. I'm not surprised that people are fed up and not being patient...the leadership has done a terrible job of having a unified message or maintaining order...they are using it for their various agendas.

    For my/our part, we only go out for groceries or drive thru (honestly, I've had drive thru probably more now than I did during non-COVID times lol) and use hand sanitizer/masks every single time. My wife works in retail (and was furloughed until like a month ago) while I work from home (have been for 5 years) and neither of us have shown a single sign throughout the whole thing (I did have a VERY bad case of the flu while in Vegas the first week of February at a work conference before stuff really hit the fan - 103 fever, all of that - ER doc said it wasn't Corona but who knows, maybe I did have it already).

    I don't think sports should be cancelled, personally...just televise it and keep teams somewhat under wraps! But I'm 95% of them expecting to be.

    I respect your opinion, I don't agree whether one person can be blamed for one aspect of this pandemic that went horrible wrong.  What I do know that instead of acting as one nation, we are acting as 50 independent states, 3000 plus counties and countless other municipal units.  With the exception of finding a vaccine, everything was piece meal.  The Albany Times Union pointed out how Saratoga Health and Sheriff's office gave approvals against Phase 4 guidelines.

    The United States of America has become a country of tribal factions.  Political, Social, Economic, Health Issues and throw in sports for good measure.

    I would love to see fall sports.  My neighbor is a DIII Offensive Coordinator stated the odds of a team getting through the season without an issue are long.  He reminded me not only are you worried about your team; you need to be worried about your opponent.  He and I agree that keeping all student-athletes under wraps is a next to impossible task.

    T-U reports the SIena will have athletes report August  17,  MAAC competition to begin Sept. 11.

    OTOH RPI has cancelled all fall intercollegiate competition. No decision yet on winter and spring sports.

    Additional note: Union College is expected to make a decision on or about July 15 for fall sports.  RPI  was not the first DIII school to forgo competing this fall.

    Early 20-21 season projections are updated on the Bart Torvik site. His projections aren't that high on UA. That said, he still has Malachai on the team and hasn't added NJIT to the league yet.




    At least, we have a starting point.  Albeit, not accurate when comes to NJIT  being part of the conference.  I wonder if Bart Torvik will update his projections in the near future.
