2020 season and COVID-19

Postby Flip » Thu Mar 19, 2020 11:06 pm

Someone said something in a basketball thread that got me thinking. It is obvious this could take away fall sports or maybe even winter sports next year. But lets say there is a fall season. I could see smaller football programs struggling to kids out. There are already a number of parents that don't their kids to play because of concussions or other injuries, now throw this into the mix. I have too much free time to think of things now.

It is my belief football will be the next sport played in ND. I could see it from the other side as well, everyone is tired of being locked up and more kids come out for fall sports.
It is a little harder to motivate kids I guess because they’ve been pampered so much. We’re in the trophy generation, give ‘em a trophy for 23rd place, make ‘em feel good. Make mom and dad feel good.” Tom Izzo, Michigan State Basketball

Personally I see them playing the B in late May and no Spring sports as the most realistic thing. BUT more and more sounds like other states are planning to delay fall sports so who knows at this point?

There will not be any spring sports, summer sports, and don't be surprised if it's a shortened FB season. This isn't suppose to peak till June or July.

Agreed wishful hypothetical reasoning, some friends in the lower echelon of college coaching, Juco, D3, have mentioned their athletic departments and conferences already discussing the real possibilities of delayed start to fall seasons.

If you're talking about having a "delayed start" in the fall you have to at least entertain the idea that there won't be a season. Nothing will be "normal" until there is a vaccine IMO.

Barring a vaccine I got to believe were not going to have normal activities until we get cure or most of the population has had covid 19 which I believe is going to take a year. I could see by next winter where we might have basketball but I am getting to think the fall sports may be out. Some exceptions of course I could see is cross country where it spread out over large area and is not real big spectator sport. How are we going to get to where we have physical contact which could spread the virus and having large crowds or spectators grouped together in few short months. This pandemic is going to have such a big effect on sports it may take years to recover from it.

if you're only worried about spectators there is a really easy fix to that: no spectators.

It will be interesting to see how other countries handle getting back to "normal" life. I think Korea plans on starting baseball soon and China wants to start their biggest pro basketball league in May.
