Heard that the NCAA is to meet April 6 to reconsider their actions concerning the Spring sports.

Anyone else hear anything like that?

So the Big 12 is removing itself from the postseason after cancelling all sports?

NCAA planning to grant additional year to some, discussing more https://247sports.com/Article/Coronavirus-NCAA-planning-to-grant-additional-year-of-eligibility-to-some-discussing-more-144994142/

"The NCAA’s Council Coordination Committee has agreed to grant relief for the use of a season of competition for student-athletes who have participated in spring sports," Goodman tweeted. "Committee will also discuss issues for winter sport student-athletes."

Goodman simplified his report in a quick follow up.

"Players in spring sports get another year of eligibility," he wrote. "NCAA looking into what to do with those who played winter sports."

The NCAA released a statement regarding the decision:

"The NCAA Board of Governors encourages conferences and schools to make decisions and take action in the best interest of student-athletes and their communities. In addition, the NCAA Board of Governors directs Divisions I, II and III to consider necessary adjustments to or waivers of rules where appropriate."

The Board of Governors for each division must pass the changes for them to be implemented.

While scholarships were the biggest obstacle (in terms of limits and incoming athletes), the NCAA allowed a path for athletes to regain a year of lost eligibility due to the coronavirus.

247Sports Chris Hummer wrote about the possibilities and questions the NCAA faces when granting extra eligibility due to the coronavirus.

"Roster size restrictions are a thing in college athletics," he wrote. "Division I baseball teams can only carry 35 players during the regular season. There are only 11.7 scholarships to go around among that group. Coaches allot those scholarships and roster spots based on impending graduations. But what happens if the seniors are granted an extra year of eligibility?

"That would create a pileup effect when it came to managing numbers. Scholarships would be restricted and difficult roster decisions would have to made. In many cases, high school athletes have already signed. What do you do when the numbers don't add up? The NCAA would need to find an elegant solution, which would likely mean temporarily expanding roster sizes."
