America East cancels Spring sports season

Recommended Posts

I must have had my head buried in my work today.  America East has joined the growing list of conferences cancelling all sport seasons for the rest of the academic year.  Further, the NCAA has also cancel all winter and spring championship events.  I am wondering why UAlbany has not placed a statement on the ualbanysports.com

SPRING ATHLETES GRANTED EXTRA YEAR OF ELIGIBILITY BY NCAA

I could see that for Spring sports although TV sports shows were mentioning that seniors in basketball would like the same deal with the NCAA tourney being missed.  That would not work as those players played an entire season already unlike spring sports and affects players on only 68 teams out of 351 D1 teams.  Do Hansen, Clark, Lauderdale deserve another year after already eliminated from post season play?  Of course not.  The NCAA has to stick to Spring only or they are opening a can of worms.

   Scholarships are the other problem.  If a school has 5 seniors graduating, they already gave 5 schollies to incoming freshmen.  Is the extra year on players dime?  Does NCAA increase allowable scholarships for one season?  Many issues.

I have seen nor heard any information about refunding for the cancelled home lacrosse matches.  I image the single game purchasers for the Syracuse game are particularly interested in receiving a refund.

Options other than refund? Could convert to a donation, credit to next years games

I agree, cancellation of the 'Cuse hurts big time.

That is what I was going to do if given the option.

What would others want for options?... With restaurants suggesting buying gift cards to use later, perhaps crediting to next year's tickets could be best option for UAlbany sports.

Not sure.  I was just going to use it as a donation to the program.

I already donate plenty [more than enough to qualify for Gold seating in football & lacrosse, Chairback--but not courtside for basketball and Sefcu parking all around.] Not looking for a refund; but some $s applied to next years seating seems appropriate to me.

Especially if Neulion already charged them for processing the tickets, giving a full cash refund would mean taking a loss

I would not expect an update until mid-April considering everyone is likely working from home.
