Ivy League Cancels All Fall Sports (not postponed...cancelled)

Recommended Posts

Per Dana O'Neil there's hopes for a Spring Season

Going to Spring would be a bit easier for The Ivy's than most league because they kinda do their own thing. They don't participate in The FCS Playoffs so churning out 7 league games would be very doable if it's safe to do so by spring (which is no sure thing).

I do expect this to be the first domino though to no fall sports

Most of Boise's roster just breathed a sigh of relief that they made the right choice. #ivyoffers

I don't think so.  Ivy league isn't dependent on TV money like the rest of us.

Per Forbes:

How much each conference gets for football from the networks.

Some if not all of the ivy’s individually have more money than our schools put together.

Yale was replacing too many seniors this year.  It was a rebuild year for them anyway.  Everything I’ve read on ESPN says this was projected to be Dartmouth’s best team ever.

Poops.  Dartmouth does something potentially grand in the croquet land of Ivy League and there's no ESPN for it.  The Ivy League is shut down for the fall.  Time to see Harry Potter movies and whatnot instead to get our fix.

Am I reading this right? The Big East is making more than the MW the entire contract we just inked? lol

I think its premature to say this is a harbinger. I think most schools are planning to go forward until the very moment (if and when) they are told they can't. There's too much money, too much pride, and too much desire to compete.

Ivy League has its historic rivalries and not much else. They don't need the TV money because they're already rich and the athletes are there for their degrees as a priority.

Yeah.  Says football media rights on the graphic, but should be combined fb/bb as Big East doesn't have a football conference. $500 million divided by 12 years is about $42 million per year.  So yeah.

You are probably correct regarding the P5 and G5 conferences, I was thinking more about some FCS conferences

I’m not sure about all of them, but FCS conferences like the Big West and Big Sky sign TV contracts where they have to PAY the networks to do their games. That sucks.

Yeah, you can get all the streamed Big Sky games on their Pluto TV channel. Pluto is free as long as you have a smart TV or Roku or whatever and an internet connection. Similar to Facebook doing some MW games basically for free. I’d honestly rather have that availability than just shown on the local channels in their region.

I figured this would be posted.   I think some other smaller conferences will cancel as well.
