    That's crazy. If anything can be learned from football this year is that you are better off playing and if cancellations/postponements happen, so be it. I don't see how players are any safer not playing than they would be by playing. It's a disconnect to me as they will still be living in the same environment as everyone else is.

    Assume the ivy is looking at all distant learning after thanksgiving. Just a guess. They march to their own drummer. Billion dollar endowments enable independent thinking.

    Except of course for those who get Covid and then have long term lung or heart damage.

    Less about player safety and more about player spreading and older coaches safety.
    Plus basketball being an indoor sport is worse..
    Not a good sign. The Ivy League was the albatross earlier.

    Albatross? I think they’d say exemplar.

    A $200k+ online degree sounds nice.

    Worth every penny from those schools.

    I'm worried about this season. The issues in this thread and the geography our members occupy increase the chances of cancellations.

    Will the WCC let schools who want to play get creative?

    There are multiple quotes from BYU football saying "if anyone plays this year we are playing." Independence is different than conference membership though. BYU values the WCC so I imagine they will quietly ask to play games, but they will live with what is approved.

    Pitino is calling for the NCAA to postpone the season.

    Is everyone just going to leave this meatball hanging over the plate? I wonder why he wants to postpone because he has almost nothing scheduled or he needs more time to source the apropriate amount of hookers and blow that a Patino team needs? Sorry for the classless comment but I couldnt resist.

    This is funny, yet exactly what I was thinking.
