Not that we didn't pretty much know before, but now it's official. All the conferences jointly made the decision to delay, and each individual conference will announce its own plans for the season.

[www.uscho.com]

"For the 2020-21 academic year, prospective student-athletes who turn 21 years old during the season (i.e., early 2000 birthdates) will not lose a year of Division I eligibility if they play a junior hockey game after their birthday. Typically, those players would have to enroll full-time in a post-secondary institution in order to retain their four years of Division I eligibility."

Also,

"Current student-athletes whose institutions will not be playing hockey during the fall semester will be permitted to participate in non-collegiate, amateur competition i.e. junior hockey on an outside team during the fall 2020 term (subject to school and conference approval). These student-athletes may compete on an outside team while remaining enrolled in their NCAA institution, which typically would not be allowed.

"An institution or conference may not provide expenses for such competition and the student-athlete must be in good academic standing. A student-athlete who remains enrolled at the institution may not miss class to participate in outside competition. All competition should adhere to federal, state, local and other applicable guidelines related to COVID-19."



Those are the changes listed in the article that are relevant. If I read those right, stienbirg will have to still be enrolled and taking classes, which the online class situation will let him do?

Here's the teams announcement.

Money shot:

The West Kelowna Junior ‘A’ Hockey Club is excited to announce forward Matthew Stienburg(‘00) will join the Warriors until the Cornell season restarts. The commitment comes with the news that NCAA Ivy League will not be running their hockey programs until after the first semester. Matt is still enrolled in Cornell and will be attending classes online during his short time with the Warriors.

so 10 games over 21 days ? that seems like a lot?

most of the ecac could play games from mid Dec to mid Jan with few kids around and testing.. but a bubble might work too.. play 3 games someplace over a week and do it couple times..

It tells about the time in which we're living that the only mention of fans was after they said that all NCHC games will be on NCHC.tv.

That begs a question I've been meaning to ask, since I can't figure out any obvious answer. Why are schools going out of there way to play sports when probably everything except power conference men's hoop and football are going to cost even more to run under covid than before without any care revenues at all to somewhat reduce the costs?

IDK, maybe it's no different than pre-covid?

Don't believe any nonsense about "herd immunity" or how it will protect hockey teams. If you or a hockey team are worried about being infected by Covid 19 you/they should immediately see your favorite politician for advice and treatment.

I understand why professional sports, even those very dependent on fans like European hockey, are trying to play however they can this year, since if they skip a whole season they might not come back. But most college sports could take the year off (from games at least) and then start up again in 2021-2022. It's an interruption for the student athletes, but then no college student(*) is having a typical college experience this year, whether their campus is open or not.

(*) Except the ones I'm teaching, who were mostly taking their courses online already anyway.

Now the 2020 - 2021 season starts in 2021?! That appears to violate our traditional concept of time, or the definition of the verb "starts"? Or maybe it's just Orwellian "newspeak" jumping over from politics to athletics.

Tangentially related only:
WBNG News
The American Hockey League announced Wednesday the targeted start date for the 2020-21 season is now February 5, 2021.
No details yet.

There probably won't be any details in February either.

Good luck to the rest of the ECAC for cobbling together a season. Guessing they won't be far behind in opting out.

Will be interesting to see if there is any change to the Lynah atmosphere due to an entire missed season. Assuming an equal distribution by class (probably not the case) a full half of the student section will have never been to a game next season as opposed to the usual 25%. Have to think there’s a learning curve for the cheers and all that. Still others may not be warm to the idea of being crammed into a student section even if these vaccines prove effective.

I hardly think students will be concerned about this once we get past the pandemic.

OTOH maybe we can use this break to untrain the next batch of students in some of the worse crap that has accumulated. A Constitutional Amendment prohibiting remote control goaltender, for example.

Some new things are good. Some need to, so to speak, diiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiie.

It's definitely going down in the Ow My Balls Hall of Fame that Mike built a national championship caliber squad, only to see a once-per-century event melt it away.

But it's a fucking game and this is health and life.

Why the Ivy League couldn't suspend this particular rule is just beyond me. It's not like any grad program in the Ivies is going to just keep some athlete around so he or she can play one more year. In just this one, absolutely unique situation, what could possibly be the harm!

Argh! Let it go, Scersk. Let it go.

What is the harm in kicking it altogether? Why encourage athletes to play for another school?

Big East is playing, Big 10. Why not ECAC? College football is playing with fits and starts. Games cancelled or rescheduled. But they're managing.

I don't know if a hockey program is like a train that you can just hop on and hop off and it just keeps going. Once players start going somewhere else they keep going there. Programs become places to be or to consider. Others also with good coaches, facilities fall off the radar.

Programs are either rising of falling. BU, Michigan, us, etc., have had stretches of glory and stretches of gloom. Times have been good lately, each year better than the last. It would a shame for it to peter out for what turns out to be no reason.

Beyond forcing them to enter the transfer portal to play as grad students, it limits their grad school educational opportunities. With a few exceptions, most of the schools with college hockey teams, other than the Ivys, are not exceptional institutions when it comes to graduate programs. Perhaps Michagan, Wisconsin, Notre Dame are exceptions here. If education is truly a priority, then allow successful student athletes to use their final year of eligibility as grad students at any institution, including an Ivy institution.

this underrates a lot of good graduate programs across the country and overrates how important the grad program is to the player looking to play as a grad student

"No reason" doesn't refer to covid per se. It means the impact of canceling hockey (and other sports) on reducing its spread. That it may be an overreaction and that less extreme measures may be just as good.

Good work by Mike not just giving rote answers. He considers what he is saying. Professional throughout and a good balance between facts and a feel for how difficult this has been for his players and their families.

Well done by both interviewer and subject.
