I think there is a 50/50 chance the season gets pushed to the spring.

Agree

2 month college football and 2 month college basketball in the Spring

Details worked out depending on health, vaccines etc. in Mid Fall

The nuclear alternative is all organized athletics pauses until the fall of 2021

RE: Memphis Football:Memphis 2020 Ticket and Donation Updates
I emailed today to find out what happens with the TSF basketball seat donations if THAT season is cancelled as well, or fans aren't allowed in the building. The representative told me that they will give the option of either taking a tax receipt for 100% donation, or you could apply those funds to the 2021 season to hold your seats.

No refunds were mentioned, although I'm sure if you were in a situation where your employment had changed or you were a squeaky wheel, they'd refund it.

I emailed asking again to try and up my donation level and buy more seats in the Stadium Club seating, but I may have to wait to see if people drop them. I want to give them more money, but the limited quantity prevents that.

Yeah, with the extension to encourage renewals, it will be a while before they open up additional seating.

What's going to happen when a player or coach tests positive for COVID? Do you isolate the entire team? Forfeit the next week? This season might happen, but it is going to be a logistical nightmare.

You test players and coaches every day before they enter the facility for a game or practice. If they test positive they aren't allowed in; no need to isolate anyone. Players are expected to be responsible, practice social distancing, and positive tests are treated the same as a sprained ankle.

Not even sure every day testing is necessary. Limit contacts through the week with normal curfews that are in place all season anyway, and with whatever distancing policies the universities come up with. The weekend is the exposure risk, test on Sunday/Monday as you enter the new week, and on Friday/Saturday heading into games.

And as we begin to get more data on these antibodies, it might not even be necessary to retest those with previous exposure.

Forfeit would only be necessary if infection rate hit a certain benchmark - which is unlikely following these conditions. We played a basketball game this year with 2 out of 11 guys out with stomach flu. 18% absenteeism is equivalent to ~15 football players. Some flu seasons, I've seen bb teams play with 8 guys healthy.

RE: Memphis Football:Memphis 2020 Ticket and Donation Updates
So, I have bought into the optimistic view. I ordered my football season tickets a couple of weeks ago. Yesterday I sent in my full TSF donation to cover football and basketball ticket purchases for the 2020-21 season.

If any 2020 football games are not played, I'll let the $$ for those roll over as a credit for 2021 tickets. I told the TSF guy I talked to that I'm fine sitting in the stadium for football, as long as the University keeps 3 vacant seats on each side of me. Ha! Seriously, I will cross that bridge when I come to it. With the temps we have at early season football games, I'm not willing to suit up in a full-face respirator with Tyvek coveralls to see a game. I had to wear that type of rig occasionally in a career I once had, and with temps in the 90's, you could not sit there for 3 to 4 hours without having a heat stroke.

I'm a firm believer that we have to move toward a normal life ASAP. It will be interesting to see how this develops.

I think it will be much easier with professional sports. Professional athletes will be much more socially isolated than collegiate athletes. The risk for exposure with collegiate athletes is everywhere-- in the classroom, at parties, from roommates. When one gets it, there will be a domino effect (like we saw in the last days of the NBA season).

Coaches are likely going to be draconian in their rules over athletes. No parties. No socializing with anyone outside of the team.

It also wouldn't surprise me to have a Mike Leach type that purposefully tries to expose the roster over the summer so that they're immune by the start of the season.

I agree, I'll be purchasing football/basketball season tix and donating to the TSF this coming week. Two Tiger lane spots already done.

I think the teams have to defer to medical advice and experts in infectious disease. If this is a virus which can lay dormant and spread before testing positive, then a positive test probably requires shutting the team down like it did the Jazz.

If the tests detect the virus early in the infection, while present in the body but dormant, or otherwise before it can spread to others, then isolating the individual only is probably responsible enough.

I wish the NCAA would announce their penalties for the basketball program before ticket $$ is due. If its a postseason ban (which I am thinking it will be - hope just 1 year and not 2), that will affect whether or not we buy. That's a lot of money to spend to watch a team playing for nothing.

NCAA Criteria for resuming athletics. They're calling it a "resocialization of sports".

Really? You would make the choice of whether to buy basketball tix or not based on NCAA penalties? Well, I suppose that it takes all kinds....

The Tigers have not been to the NCAA tourney in quite a number of years now, but I've enjoyed every basketball game that I have attended during that stretch. I think that making the tournament has been a long shot for quite a few of those years. To each his own, though.
