I’ll put all college sports resumption at zero percent chance.  

Interesting enough, the MAAC announced their teams are resuming play after September, 12, 2020.  I do not see any fall sports, winter sports have just little more time.  Interesting, Rick Pitino, the new Iona basketball coach, stated he would go along with a conference only schedule.

I sort of think the CAA proposal makes the most sense. I posted the proposal before, but will recap. All CAA teams (football excluded), will play a regional ONLY schedule. Some teams may play only in conference  teams, some may play only out-of conference teams and others may play a mix. ALL teams no matter who or what mix they play will qualify for the CAA conference tournament, so ALL CAA athletes ultimately have a chance to play for an NCAA championship. The locations for the CAA/NCAA qualifying tournaments will be worked out at a later date, when regional or one location covid options are better understood. 

By letting each team originally stay regional/close to home playing all or NO conference opponents, with still having NCAA possibilities may give the CAA a fair chance of getting a good portion of their teams the most amount of play?

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.

I mean when it comes to Stanford field hockey, even making the NCAA Tournament, it was unsustainable. They were going to leave the AE in the sport and those 4 west coast schools were hanging on by a thread anyway.
