    When Will The College Hockey Season Start?

    The thing is in New England it is probably feasible to have inter league play with other New England schools. I mean is Yale going to have a weaker testing protocol than Providence? Is the Boston side of the BU Bridge safer than the Cambridge side? Much different for the western leagues though

    When Will The College Hockey Season Start?

    I sort of think that the ECAC plan makes some sense if you play. A different alternative would be scrap leagues entirely for this season and play strictly local as much as possible. Metro Army Sared Heart QU Yale I91 UCONN UMass VT Holy Cross Northeast Merrimack UNH Maine Bentley. You get the...

    UConn Survey on Attending Games

    Not a chance. Just shut it down. A bubble might be ok for the NBA but for college sports it is a terrible idea and playing without fans in some unspecified arena just makes it worse. Plus the CCSUs of the world will not get equal treatment. So it destroys the excitement of the tournament. If it...

    Louisville Answers Notice of Allegations

    The NCAA will probably vacate a bunch of games. BFD. But you are correct that they won’t want to anger the ACC. Or weaken it. And so they will pretend that there are mitigating factors. Oh, and Eastern Kentucky will probably get the death penalty

    Can Top Prep Schools Beat A Good College Team?

    I seriously doubt those teams would beat any D1 team. Over he course of a game I think strength and conditioning as well as coaching would eventually take a toll. And probably defense too. Few of those prep teams really play any defense to speak of. I’ve heard a number of college coaches say the...

    When Will The College Hockey Season Start?

    I think a bigger question is when will it end. If there is a 2nd wave which some expect around November/December combined with the seasonal flu which is largely being ignored it is entirely possible that play will start in November and end in January.

    Can Top Prep Schools Beat A Good College Team?

    Physically they would take a beating and they are not going to be as well coached either. Ask Hurley or Calhoun

    The Pac-12 is reportedly targeting a return in mid to late November...

    They were probably the biggest loser among the top leagues in the reorganization of college football. Even more so than the B12. The teams they added are meh. Their games are played so late most of the county misses them and they Really have not had a great team in a while. Plus everybody plays...

    B1G is likely Back

    You still don’t get it do you? Or at least you pretend not to. This puts faculty , staff, janitors, cafeteria workers parents, friends, just regular folks all at risk. This is NOT just the flu. NOT a minor inconvienience. It has already killed more Americans than died in World War I, Korea and...

    ACC propses every D1 team makes tournament

    That is obviously nonsense. If every league got 1 you’d be right but conference tournaments are and have always been about money first, money second and money 3rd. Back in the day they might have been the first round but as soon as you took an at-large team from a league (back in the day there...

    ACC propses every D1 team makes tournament

    Special circumstances demand special solutions. Baseball and the NBA are following different protocols this year. It is very likely that major conferences will play in bubbles but lower leagues can’t so will play fewer games, are more likely to play fewer if any majors and are more likely to...

    Battle in the Bubble - Rothstein

    Athletic talent does not equate to sound judgement necessarily. The incidents I cited support my position. Or are you saying they did not happen? Or that they were evidence of mature judgement? In either case you would be wrong ...

    Battle in the Bubble - Rothstein

    Hmmm, somebody should call UNC NC State, Michigan State, Notre Dame, Minnesota. All have either sent students home or delayed allowing them back. But don’t let facts get in the way of that big game with Creighton. As to forcing, how many players are willing to stand up to their coach do you...

    Battle in the Bubble - Rothstein

    No John. That is a reason why this is dumb. No students on campus. But we force a bunch of college kids to live in a bubble in Omaha for our entertainment. Oh, and so the NCAA can collect its check from CBS. And I’m just guessing but I bet leagues like the MEAC, NEC, you know, the 16 seed...

    Battle in the Bubble - Rothstein

    Maybe they can do cut out fans too! Or like that Korean (?) baseball team they can put blow up dolls in the seats. It is an awful idea which is being done for the money. Not for the players. Certainly not for the schools in any way other than financial. Not for 5he students. There is an old...

    They are not a COLLEGE team. Pros are really a different animal.

    Battle in the Bubble - Rothstein

    Well not exactly. They live play and practice in Connecticut. And even occasionally meet other students. But in a bubble in Omaha? Team B.

    Battle in the Bubble - Rothstein

    It makes a total mockery of COLLEGE basketball. Awful precedent and in a bubble in Omaha how pray tell is Team B UConn? They don’t play at UConn. They don’t practice at UConn. They don’t live at UConn. UConn students don’t attend the games. They don’t meet or hang out at UConn. They are just...

    Yeah. You were probably one of the guys who got excited because a recruit dunked against a chair. He was going to be the next Okafor or even better. LOL.

    Diggins intangibles.

    Yeah, I’m going to let him play maybe 4-5 games before I call him as good as Shabazz Napier. You know, just because I’m like that. I like to see guys play against college players. I’m old enough to remember when everyone got all excited ‘cause a guy kicked the $h;+ out of a chair.

    College football facing harsh reality with students returning to campus (Thamel)

    I don’t favor paying players but I absolutely agree with Fairfield 1st on this. It will be a very tough case to make that football players, or any athletes who are forced into a bubble (hi Val) so they can play while their classmates are sent home, are not in fact employees.

    Did you ever meet a celebrity that acted like a jerk?

    Back in the day before wives, kids, houses etc. I was a pretty good golfer. Got to play in a pro-am with a guy who won a few PGA tour events. He was absolutely miserable. Barely grunted. One guy in our group hit a shot into a really tough spot and asked the pro what he would do in that...

    State health officials suggest 7-on-7 high school football

    Yeah. There was this HUGE backup on 84 yesterday as the trucks with all the Connecticut kids leaving because they want to play high school football...oh wait, I’m being told it wasn’t moving trucks . It was a DOT crew mowing. Well, never mind.

    No excuse for losing to George Mason. That was the most embarrassing loss of the Calhoun era.

    Anyone Ever Attend a UConn BB True Road Game

    Actually now that I think of it, also BC and BU the night the bus crashed in an ice storm. Game started around 11 I think. And St Johns. I was a little kid but my first UConn-BC game was an NCAA tourney game played at URI. My father and uncle decided at the last minute to drive to Rhody because...

    Anyone Ever Attend a UConn BB True Road Game

    At PC, at UMass, at Georgetown, at Villanova, at Cincinatti. Wore UConn gear. Most people were fine. A little good natured back and forth mostly. Worst was Cincy Georgetown nobody really gave a darn about anything Totally a business crowd.

    College football facing harsh reality with students returning to campus (Thamel)

    And Florida State Prez says he will drive around Tallahassee yelling through a.bullhorn at students who are partying but of course FSU will allow tailgating at football games. Honestly if you made this up nobody would believe it.

    The end for Will Wade (maybe Sean Miller too)?

    College basketball is an absolute cesspool. Football is slime but basketball is an absolute pit of contaminated feces floating in slime. My guess is no high D 1 coach is untainted. These guys like Miller and Pitino and Wade are worse than most but as long as CBS is willing to pay billions for...

    College football facing harsh reality with students returning to campus (Thamel)

    Yeah because 18-21 year old guys are widely known for their wise judgement...one would like to think that adults would make sound decisions but apparently not.

    College football facing harsh reality with students returning to campus (Thamel)

    Student athletes...LOL. They are proposing to make them virtual prisoners in order to play football. But for that matter the Big East wants to do the same for basketball so we can’t complain I guess

    State health officials suggest 7-on-7 high school football

    In many ways most spring sports are better suited to this environment. Baseball, golf track & field softball. Lacrosse might be problematic.

    Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City to host winter B1G Football?

    They used to play a bowl game there. I think UMass played in it once. Oregon State did too though I have no idea why I know that.

    Now it hits the Big Boys wallets

    John While I agree with some of this, there was a great piece on the public university “business model” recently that I read. The New Yorker I think but could have been the Times. Most public universities were already under funded relative to where they where prior to the 2008 recession. As a...
