Basketball season was originally slated to begin with games on Nov. 10, but is likely to move to Nov. 25 based upon a joint recommendation from the NCAA committees that oversee men's and women's basketball. The rationale makes sense. Most campuses are scheduled to clear out at Thanksgiving, so disruption for basketball teams will be limited.

As for football, the CAA soon will finalize a schedule for the spring. We do know that the regular season will end on April 17, with selections for the FCS playoffs taking place the following day. The team has been working hard and looking forward to "fall ball" in October.

The spring season, which will be limited to a maximum of eight regular-season games, is going to be a springboard for the fall.

A total **** show!

I disagree. I was against a spring season because it throws off the 2021 season, however if we use it in place of Spring football, limit it to 8 games, and then start the 2021 season in October as it seems to be the plan then I think this could work out well. Plus we get football year round from now until early 2022 basically in one form or another. I'm down.

If Biden wins the Presidency this will all change again. He will mostly shut the country down and sports, entertainment, concerts and all recreation events will be on hold. He sais it himself...I say the CAA should have played this Fall and do in conference games only. Or, play other D1 teams in your own state. We have many football teams between the  FCS and FBS in States where the CAA partisapates.

The NCAA Division I Board of Directors approved shifting the first date of competition for basketball from Nov. 10 to Nov. 25, and our teams could not be more excited to get the season underway. From the time our teams returned to campus, progressing from individual workouts (one ball with one coach on one basket) to full-team practices, the energy has been off the charts.

 It has been a mad scramble to rebuild the nonconference schedules, but everything is finally coming together. Sharing a state with a large number of Division I programs certainly has provided tremendous scheduling flexibility.

I would be so overjoyed if the athletic department is just overexaggerating their "financial problems" in order to gain even more money from people and lead to actual constructive changes.

townhall- FB will have two non-conf games, one is set (says we should be excited for it- maybe RuTgers?!?!?) and the other is pending.

i'm so glad we have heilbron to build our athletics dept- and also to pull us through the pandemic.  so so so many sports fans hate their AD.  we have the opposite- this is the right guy for our program.  he has the right message.  the goal is the same.  pandemic or not.  win championships. 

he actually welcomes the higher expectations.  its the way to win.

PS- $130k raised by 7:30pm, just today, and still going
