On the face of it the free year seems like a great bonus, but it's fraught with issues. You can't stop recruiting in order to be able to accommodate seniors who want to return, so where do you find scholarships for the returners? UVM is a pubic university and the slots in its student body are state assets which belong to the citizens of Vermont. They can't simply be given away as they could at a private school; funds have to be raised to pay for them. And the current roster has 16 players. If everyone returns and you add the two new frosh next year, that's 18. Do you want your young players to sit for a year while waiting for playing time to be freed up? This may be one of those situations in which you ought to be careful what you ask for.Exactly. My feeling is the seniors likely move on regardless. But, I'd add on that Schulman categorically said in a statement either to the Freep or one of the other local media earlier this year that spring sport athletes, who were granted waivers by the NCAA to stay on after their seasons were canceled need to move on as the university would not up or honor any scholarship commitments to them. While we know basketball gets preferential treatment and it's a possibility there could be some workarounds, I'm going to imagine the same thing applies here. Any "conversations" about it re: Becker's statements I am not reading too much into right now...but I'd argue if they were serious about it, they wouldn't be landing incoming freshman for 2021, right? I would just say everyone should commit now to knowing this is the last year of the current senior class and then be surprised if it's not. It's not worth the effort to envision otherwise.
