So, how do you tell the difference from any other season?
Will be interesting to see if more one-bid leagues follow in suit.
BTW I’m told the MAAC is requiring the four teams that make the league semis to remain in Atlantic City, test daily and quarantine as a safeguard so there are backup teams, should the champ and the runner-up both wind up being incapable of traveling to Indy for the NCAAT. twitter.com/MattNorlander/…
To sum it up: Richmond had a staff member test positive 2 days before the game, no close contacts. Then an injured player test positive before the game, Richmond said no close contacts, SLU pulled out, PR war ensued. Then 2 days after the game, multiple UR players test positive
Really important read on Richmond's protocols and exactly what happened with the SLU-Richmond game that never was and a vital work of student journalism from the @URCollegian twitter.com/URCollegian/st…

A COVID shutdown at this point can be a season-ender, as has now happened to Charleston Southern MBB; their WBB team can't return to competition until March 4, which is two days before the Big South tourney is scheduled to begin
Just contacted CSU about 2 things. Answers to my questions.
1- Big South basketball tourney game won’t be rescheduled, so it’s in essence a forfeit for CSU- season over.
2- Baseball not listed on here, but included in the shutdown. twitter.com/seisbergwciv/s…
J.D. Collins also told me that the restrictions for the officials in Indianapolis next month for the NCAA tournament will be “as tight or tighter than everybody else.”
Just talked to NCAA National Coordinator of Officials J.D. Collins - who said that there have been fewer than 10 games canceled or postponed due to referees this ENTIRE SEASON. He praised both officials and league coordinators, and rightfully so. Incredible job by officials.
No fans allowed for Spiders football or other spring sports, in or out of facilities. During first two men's lacrosse games at Robins Stadium, fans observed from outside stadium, some in hammocks.

The University of Richmond announced this week that attendance at all spring sports events, including Spiders football, is limited to guests of Richmond student-athletes and coaches, due to school and
Interesting document here. To oversimplify: there will be four "standby" teams that didn't make the field that will be at the ready to step in for a team that can't' play. So we kinda/sorta have a field of 72 this year.

NCAA announces contingency plans for tournament teams forced to withdraw due to issues related to COVID-19: http://on.ncaa.com/yjxkw
"Bronx, N.Y. – Fordham women's basketball, George Washington, and the Atlantic 10 have announced a nonconference match-up between the Rams and Colonials for next Thursday, March 4, in Washington, D.C. Tip-off from the Smith Center is set for 5 p.m. with ESPN+ carry live coverage.
Owners of five straight league victories, including its most recent at home against Saint Joseph's on February 12, Fordham had to pause all team activities due to a campus-wide pause due to New York state's COVID-19 protocols. The Rams' five remaining conference contests were all postponed as a result. Fordham is currently tied for second place in the Atlantic 10 standings with an 8-2 in-conference record, 11-3 overall.
This will be the first time the two schools have ever met in nonconference action."
Would someone please enlighten me on this being a nonconference match-up.
