    Nothing has changed in the virus since late August. B1G saw the other conferences not following them and playing football, and were pressured into playing by players, donors, coaches, sponsors, fans.. I think they are doing the right thing. Will a few games be postponed along the way? maybe, but the ways to mitigate risks and keep the virus from spreading among teams is known. There's a blueprint. Also, the demographic who are being affected the most are not college football players and staff. It's elderly and immunocompromised with co-morbidities. Those folks should stay clear of college campuses and anywhere else for that matter. All this is my opinion of course. The MAC should be following the B1G and playing Oct-Dec when things are somewhat level and before the Flu season is in high swing. No one plays spring (or late winter) college football. I think it's just a way to appease players and coaches for now.

    Thank you to the donors that made it happen.

    They should not be playing this year. And likely neither should any sports for the entire ACADEMIC year.

    If players are tested consistently and there are no fans, it would be pretty safe. A lot of these bigger conferences are ignoring that a bit. If the Mac can find a plan for testing and to play a conference schedule, I’d definitely be for it

    Nothing is likely to be learned about the long-term effects by February, either....yet basketball is on track to start by Thanksgiving. The world has to go on while taking precautions and mitigating to the best of ones ability...but things must go on.

    Perhaps just the promise of its completion has already made an impact on this years class?

Personally I don't think we can trust the numbers anymore since so much of this is politicized. But hey, it's your life. I'll watch.

    Nationwide low positivity testing and slower spread. Shut downs for flare ups. State by state mandatory mask requirements. An ok from the CDC and FDA doctors that it is safe to play. Winter sports may have to be canceled as well, the above are not met. Remember people are only as safe as the least safe person they meet. If the entire 2020-2021 academic year has no collegiate sports I am fine with that. The health and safety of students is more important than the money they generate or the entertainment they provide.

    I guess somebody did something to have an ice cream named after them.

    According to the Game Book (aka stats) he did make it onto the field. Probably on Special Teams.

    I agree, I could see him starting and only playing like 10mpg. We have a tendency to do that.

    https://twitter.com/zsmart3/status/1303850192261779458?s=20 Word is we are pursuing him hard along with FGC, FIU and East Carolina.

    And he stabbed someone over a basketball game. Not like it was self defense. It looks like he already was kicked off the team but has not been expelled. Could we fill the empty scholarship?

    Kick him off the team and get it over and done with. That kind of behavior is inexcusable. STABBING someone??? Utter stupidity.

    I spent Labor Day weekend in isolation, researching the current recruits in the entire conference. In case you haven't already seen it on UBBullRun, this is what I found... https://www.ubbullrun.com/2020/9/8/21428248/preview-who-else-wants-the-macs-football-recruits-2021-edition

    Here is a bit more on the idea: https://richmond.com/sports/college/reports-ncaa-will-consider-including-all-teams-in-2021-basketball-tournament/article_7e0904b0-a08b-53b5-86dd-38014c7849e7.html From the article: "The week of conference tournaments would serve as the first week of the NCAA Tournament, with the field trimmed to 64 or 68 teams in the following week." Does this mean that the conference championships would be eliminated in favor of this plan? Another article mentions at-large bids - so doe not seem like proposal is strictly a play in. Will be interested in seeing more details.

    The ACC and NCAA have floated the idea of having every team play in the tournament. Not sure how’d that exactly work, an out there idea for sure. Would help UB if they can’t get any non conference games this season

    Should help with recruitment a bit, that room is nicer than some big name schools

    #76, very respectable. They have us as the second highest 13 seed, just ahead of projected 13's, Yale and Furman. https://www.collegesportsmadness.com/article/18707

    This is much more complicated than you think. If people stay for an extra year, how many new scholarships can you bring in? Do you have extra scholarships for 5 years? Do people automatically get a 6thyear to play their 4th season? Depending on the answers this can be brutally expensive. Also why are the students at any school? Are they there to get a degree and possibly start a masters or are they there to stay "forever" and to play a sport? I am in the degree column. How many of the students need another to show they can go pro? If after 4/5 years they do not know, that 6th year is not going to get them noticed.
