that’s exaclty what i was thinking too which is why I’m so frustrated. I see this is an effective cancellation of the entire season unless NCAA pushes basketball out to the spring.Least surprising news ever. Literally nothing is different today then it was March 11th 2020 with respect to COVID.
Here’s another newsflash: It’s also not going to be any safer on 12/18 for UVM to head to Lowell, MA to play basketball 12/19, either. In fact by then it will likely be even less safe.
The only surprise for me will be whether an AE game gets played this year.
If this is the case load that requires halting play then we’re never going to play. It’s different because the student-athletes are tested 3x weekly. Why bother testing this whole time anyway if you were just planning on cancelling the season anyway? literally nothing has deviated from the projections. Fauci himself (back in September) said we could expect to see 200,000 daily cases nationally in November.
now we are meeting, but not exceeding, the models and they go ahead and cancel NCAA sports anyway? Come on. Why bother teasing us if this was the risk tolerance threshold. Smh.
oh, and btw my discipline and solidarity in continuing to practice social distancing hasn’t been broken. I will have thanksgiving dinner with my in-state brother and his fiancé, that’s is. I will continue to follow the best practices etc SO WE CAN HAVE THINGS LIKE COLLEGE BASKETBALL AND FOOTBALL. So don’t blame this shit on me. I do my part.
