Hope so.  Because chaos might ensue for hoops if they don't

Strange that the UC schools are being treated different than the Cal State schools. I’m surprised Newsom hasn’t put the kibosh on it. Money seems to be driving this decision. I wonder how many students have decided they are going to skip the fall semester and maybe even spring if things turn bad. Although as a young student your chances of recovering if you get the virus are very high. This is going to either work out well or could end up being a nightmare.

They are both saying it will be a hybrid of sorts. I don’t think Newsome would stop that.

I think SJSU, Fresno, and SDSU will be playing football and this will all be moot.

I agree They had Fresno State‘s president on the local sports radio station and he said that what the CSU Chancellor stated was very misleading. No final decision has been made, but it does sound very promising now that we hear more and more universities easing restrictions.

The announcement from the CS chancellor was 'mostly online'.

The CSU's are preparing for sports to be played on campus as scheduled in '20-'21. Nothing from their chancellor so far has explicitly suggested a lost season

It seems like when the announcement that the fall semester would be online (or mostly online) a lot of people just made the assumption that fall sports would be cancelled because of this. The all-CSU CCAA announcing the cancelation of their fall sports the same day probably had a lot to do with that.

Follow the money to find the "truth" out about this chinavirus stuff.  

The potential lawsuits for denial of services would have cost >>>>>>>>>> than any alleged health risks.

Follow the money is right.  One dead professor and the lawsuits will flow.  That is exactly what is driving the decisions.  Liability.

Teams don't play themselves.  Eight members means 7 opponents for each member which means a 14 game schedule.

Hopefully things will work out so it's not necessary, but if the MWC were to have only 8 members with active athletic programs and the BWC were to have only 6, some kind of temporary alliance could make sense.  As an example each school could play home-and-homes against the members of its own conference and single games (half home and half away) against the members of the other conference.  That would give the MWC schools 20 game schedules and the BWC schools 18 game schedules.

It was a joke and a play on my poor math skills.

Cal State schools are likewise opening. Most if not all schools will be opening across the country. They can't afford not to.

If this nonsense has any positive outcome at all it will be to speed up the inevitable transition to distance learning.

Many students do not learn well in distance learning, one of the outcomes I think that will be realized from the lockdowns. There will need to be a mix of educational styles.

But I agree there will be more distance learning offered in the future.

What does need to speed up is the NCAA's view of athletics and distance learning. The NCAA has been about school having to be reopened after coronavirus for athletics to operate.

But in a future scenario with more distance learning even without coronavirus, if a University has 75% or more of its classes online vs a school with only 25% online how is the definition of student-athlete impacted.
