UA gets the shaft again by covid and the AmEast. Hartford game Saturday canceled due to covid; but I wonder if it has more to do with their rumored drop to DIII??????? So if UA wins today @ vmont, the only way we can host the tournament is if UMBC loses to last place NJIT at home---NOT going to happen. No matter what brook & vmont do against each other Saturday; UA will come one win short of the crown, even though they will have only 2 loses.

Scott was incensed that the AmEast made the Hartford cancel announcement before today's key game, giving a not needed added distraction for his team. He wanted the league to wait until Thursday; but IMHO the cancel rumor was already out there, might as well make it official and deal. But IMHO this late in the season, the league should have declared the canceled game a forfeit , especially because it has so many ramifications at this juncture. {and because IMHO there is more than covid behind Hartford's cancel.} In the TU article, Scott played diplomat about the cancel/reasons and only was "upset" with the timing.

@72 my memory is getting a little vague; but I recall a similar incident years ago when UA lax lost out on a host opportunity due to some sort of similar late season incident? Maybe I'm wrong but I think it had something to due with the year we had to go to Denver, but should have hosted??????

Assuming there is one, some major rule changes approved: The article said due to the unusual timing and loss of 2020 season; the rules ARE official; but an additional comment period "may be" al

Sorry to disagree; but donors and ticket buying fans absolutely have the right and in fact obligation to evaluate the AD. I won't bore you all and list ALL the reasons I feel he has done a terrib

Bing just beat Vermont, so, the top 4 teams each have 2 losses

The only "incident" in 2013 was that we lost to $iena in April, when one of the Thompsons missed the game for a childbirth or something.

Sorry I still don't agree that Big 10 and ACC should have that many teams in the tournament.   BTW Rutgers is playing really well.... 

I'm sure they're using the same metric as the basketball tournament; if a power conference team has a  .500 record they're in, other schools suck it.

Or we could go back to 1970, when only one team per conference got in, and a lot more schools can  decide to be independent.

Hopefully after a win over Vermont, Marr and Benson will raise hell with the conference and Hartford if this costs us the regular season championship and ability to host.  This is pure BS, Hartford should forfeit or show up with 12 guys and play. UA has done everything right.
