RE: MAC football season cancelled.
I think Coach will be able to retain our talent. They would most likely be immediately eligible if they transfer. The question I would be asking as a player that wanted to transfer is what happens if the school I transfer to plays 6 or 7 games before cancelling? Do they still get an additional year of eligibility or would your career be over if you're a senior?

I would think being immediately eligible would be a deterrent for players to transfer. Trying to pick up with a new team in August is a recipe for a disaster of a year. Then as you mentioned it could be a wasted year anyways if the football season doesn't work out.

RE: MAC football season cancelled.
I hear from the proponents of playing that a vast majority (probably 99%+) of 20 years olds get mild cases so why not play. Kinda of makes sense but then I got to thinking (always a bit dangerous) about the chicken pox. Everybody got them when I was a kid. Not a big deal right. Of course no one knew that when those kids turned 60 and 70 something called shingles would happen. New diseases are always a bit worrisome. The doctors obviously aren’t comfortable yet. All those ventilators Cuomo was yelling about don’t even get used much anymore. They actually caused more harm then good. I am not an alarmist. I go to restaurants, coffee shops, gyms, golf courses every day but I avoid crowds of greater than 5 with a passion. A football game is a crowd in my opinion. I don’t see this happening until there is a vaccine. Pro sports can plug along with bubbles and constant testing (although baseball is testing the limit). College and high school are just not capable of that.

The MAC needs to get a conference schedule set for spring ASAP. That way when P5's season gets put off to the spring they will scramble for non-conference games. That gives us a decent bargaining chip.

Any thoughts what a bowl season could look like is the spring season succeeds?

Heard Coach Lewis on the radio today discussion went to players transferring to Power 5 school. Coach Lewis said he fully understood if players elected to leave

We wont play in the Spring and if we do there will not be out of conference games. It will be a shortened season so it doesnt impact the NFL draft

Ian Rapport reported this morning that the NFL would switch their schedule and be flexible if spring football happens. Seeing how they are getting a free minor league they have no reason not to be flexible.

Yeah I figured that was a foregone conclusion. It's August 10th and we haven't even had the draft lottery in the NBA.

There could be a vaccine by then.

We're five months in and they're making progress. A spring season start date could be another 6 months out so it seems possible healthwise. Scheduling logistics would be another story.

We lost our first transfer, Antwan Dixon. Sad to see him go, best of luck to him.

I just wonder what these players will do if they transfer out and then the conference they join cancels their season too. It seems short sighted to me but wish them the best of luck.

Dixon in particular should avoid playing this year as he could be immuno compromised.

Agreed, I also found it odd that they stuck by him while he battled back and then he’s bolting. I get it that he doesn’t want the special 6th season to turn into a 7th season, but I’m not quite sure where he thinks he’ll be able to play this fall. FCS is out and I can’t see him getting on the field for the only schools playing.

This sucks. I hate 2020. I was feeling good today when they posted photos of the team getting their championship rings.
