First home game on the ledger: CCSU on December 15. I still can't see there being fans in the stands.

The NEC game.

Now, why we had to go on the road to play Wagner last year, I still don’t know.

Worth noting that we'll get American back at our place this season. The Eagles lost all-everything guard Saeed Nelson but have a nice nucleus coming back.

The Ivy League has canceled all sports for the fall and it won't hold any games in the winter season until after January. The Yale game seems highly unlikely. I could see there being a feeding frenzy now ... Yale was scheduled to play us and Siena, maybe we play Siena. Howard was supposed to play Harvard, Penn and Yale ... maybe we play Howard.

Yes, I realize that everything is in doubt. But if it's a go in the winter, maybe that's a way to fill the schedule.

Edit: Per D1Docket, "at least one other conference" is likely to follow suit. My bet's on the Patriot League. It begs the question: will tipoff be January 2021 for everyone?

I could see all OOC games being cancelled, and the conference slate pushed back several weeks to a month. That means conference play starts in February with the NCAA tournament coming in April, not March. That's an outcome I can be ok with and wouldn't mind all that much. The way college basketball works, any games before conference play (and really the conference tournament if we're being honest) are a total waste of time from a standings perspective.


I expect everybody but the SEC will cancel football this year, but that's another sport entirely.

Beginning of the end for college sports???   The Stanford news is huge.  If state monies are not included in the proposed next round of federal stimulus, then chop, chop, chop.   Fringe sports (non-revenue generating) will be cut all over the place.  I agree with VA, OOC hoops will be cut (possibly in their entirety), and maybe conference games will be played in front of empty arenas.  Reduced revenue stream for basketball, and expect some schools to drop basketball altogether moving forward.   Really sucks.  Starting to appreciate European soccer so much more though.
How old a Seawolf am I? I followed them during their Final 4 DIII hoops run in 1977-78 (they were called the Patriots then)

Speaking of soccer. if the Europeans can have a soccer league this year, why can the US do the same with Fall sports?? Players all get tested regularly, with no fans, but they are playing with no noticeable issues.

Say what you may but this Coronavirus is purely a political play, and that is wrong. it is affecting everybody in every political group..

Basketball is a required sport for D1 (and I'm pretty sure NCAA wide at all levels), teams must have a men's and women's basketball team. That cannot ever be cut.

I could see schools dropping down to the bare minimum of sports they need to have in order to sustain themselves as a D1 program (16 I believe for FBS schools) with the emphasis being put on sports that make money. I could see a world where schools have football, basketball, and then maybe hockey, baseball, or LAX depending on region (SBU is good at LAX so we keep that one, hockey is a money maker for the Big Ten schools so they keep that, Baseball is big for the SEC they keep that, etc.) with everything else being solo sports they need to bring themselves up to NCAA minimums (track, golf, etc) and the associated women's sports for Title IX compliance. All other sports  get dropped.  So say goodbye to soccer, baseball, tennis, a whole bunch of sports will get cut.

As far as SBU goes, I'm not exactly sure where/if we'll need to cut yet, but IMO, Soccer will be the first to go. Swimming and Diving, then Cross Country would be next, and if things got really bad, Baseball. Football is safe, basketball is essential, and LI is too good of an area for LAX to lose that.

Personally I love watching and playing volleyball. For selfish reason, I hope we keep women’s vb. May be we can even drop men’s soccer, women’s tennis, and add men’s vb ;D We can join EIVA and play Harvard, Princeton, GMU etc. It’s such a fun sports and so underrated. Requires only 4 schollies for men’s.

Women's VB is a headcount sport, so any partial aid given to an athlete in that sport will count towards the total as if it was a full scholarship (same rule applies to FBS football and men's/women's basketball). For that reason along with many others women's Volleyball at SBU is safe. The general proportion of men's to women's scholarship opportunities must remain intact though, so I don't see us adding any men's sports anytime soon. Any pipe dreams of varsity hockey will be gone for quite a while. I contend an FBS move makes sense, but only if it's to a suitable conference. No pulling a Liberty or UMass and moving up just to stay independent.
