Good video godanesgo99. It's nice to actually hear something not laced with politics and with no agenda other than to inform and offer possible solutions. There is no perfect solution to this problem and all choices present uncertainty and danger. I'm certain there will be much discussed, analyzed and written over the next century regarding how this was handled. It's painful to see the unbridled politics being flung about. From my way of thinking this shutdown of the economy is not sustainable and may have already caused irreparable damage. Everything in life has risks. It's time to take a chance and get as much of the economy going again as can be done while at the same time minimizing risk and protecting the vulnerable. People will still die from it, sure. But people die of all sorts of stuff all the time. Businesses, livelihoods, ability to support oneself and your family are all dead or dying too. I've heard predictions that 25 or 30% of businesses, especially restaurants, will never open again. That's scary.

I'm actually pretty happy to be in my blue state, thankyouverymuch and think that the safety of the many supersedes the rights of a few.    It's called the greater good. Maybe we should talk abou

I could see fall sports delayed or cancelled, but honestly, if we as a country aren't back to normal by the time winter sports start practice we will have much bigger issues than college sports. We wi

I’d have to see what the plan was and what the infection rates were at the time. If it can be done safely, sure. I was at some games last year where it looked like most of the upper deck was practicin

UA season going to be axed this coming year.  NY primary, secondary , and SUNY will all remotely operate.   Get ready parents to be screwed with finding a way to deal with your kids being home during normal school days.  Who’s lost their job or have had their small business destroyed so far up there?  Fatten everyone up with stimulus and supplemental unemployment, and prepare for getting the rug pulled out from under you when the governmental titties stop producing the monetary milk.   Can’t let a ‘crisis’ go to waste, right?   Have they released the contact tracing brown shirts up there yet?  Nanny State NY.   Going to the beach today and then heading out to Outback Steakhouse this evening.  Glad we don’t have your narcissistic governor down hear in FL.

Yeah this is going to be 2008 but worse, IMO, once everyone's bills start coming due. Completely mismanaged disaster.

Has this been announced? I have not heard anything official up here? Are you just speculating??? California governor has made his state U's strictly on-line in the fall. What has the NCAA SAID about that????????  Original NCAA said no students on campus--NO ATHLETICS??  Are they sticking to that??? Pac 12 power 5 loses a lot of TV revenue if so and "Rose Bowl?"

Cuomo said yesterday that he's not ready to make that decision.

My understanding is that colleges and universities need to present a plan for opening and operations including how the institution is going to maintain social distancing.  Many of the concerns are similar that New York school districts face including:  keeping the kids apart.  I am keeping my fingers crossed and there is sports in the fall.  Nothing is certain, particularly in the State of New York.

I do not believe the California governor asked the NCAA for their input....college sports impact likely did not come up and/or dismissed as a concern.

Worth noting this was the Cal-State system, not all the California public universities.  The UC system hasn't said anything yet, so not sure if this was at Newsom's level or the Cal State level.

This thread has tended to swerve into political nonsense that can be found on reddit, facebook or a zillion other sites that aren't about UAlbany athletics. If we could keep the topic to whether there will be a season next year or now, that would be awesome.

Thanks,

The steak was delicious and the restaurant was packed tonight.   Have been on vacation across the state of FL, a few weeks ago, and driving up to GA to buy a new car this week.  You guys haven’t even been released from house arrest.  Doesn’t look like your leaders want to bring things back to normal.  Let’s pray that the lunacy stops and UA Football is on the field this fall.   Then again, they probably won’t let fans in the stadium anyways.

So much for what DP asked for...

Whether or not there is a season IS political, don’t doubt that.

The people of NYS will decide the issue.  If you allow Cuomo to carry on as is, he will shut it down.  Living beachside here in FL, every time a hurricane churns near our coast, the local authorities announce a mandatory evacuation order.   It is not a legal directive, therefore it is not enforceable, and most stay in their homes.  Maybe if NYS pushes Cuomo aside and opens up on their own,  then maybe he won’t have an option to shut down college athletics in three months time.

When the sheep grow fangs the shepherd runs for cover....

There will reach a point where a growing number of people will not put up with it anymore. Anybody paying attention can see exactly what’s going on here. Multiple states and municipalities were on life support BEFORE all this happened and now their tax revenues are catastrophically reduced. Yes, people will get sick and yes people will die....but the country has to reopen soon or it’s all over. Football and basketball are the least of our worries. There’s disaster at the doorstep. IMHO.
