We got a return visit to Fullerton.   We play at the Rangers new park with  Mississippi State, Ole Miss, and Arkansas.

We are on a four game winning streak.  

Fight me.

I like the implication that the coronavirus was God's judgement for playing an aggy football level OOC schedule. Make cool games happen.

Has the rest of 2020 season been cancelled or just suspended until a certain date?

Currently the big 12 suspended sports until 3/29. The NCAA cancelled postseason. The regular season can resume if the conferences want to.

NCAA announces spring sports seniors get an extra year of eligibility. 

Donny Diaz, Petrinsky, Austin Todd and Duke Ellis can come back if they want.

Brian Davis says Texas Athletics facilities are closing and student athletes are being released to go home.  They aren't going to be practicing as if the season will pick up again. It could, but seems unlikely at this point.

Wonder how they will handle the 11.7 next season with incoming freshman / 35 man roster

Potentially a temporary relaxation of the roster limit by not counting either incoming freshmen who RS or super seniors. 

Great time to discuss increasing the 11.7 bullshit.

More on that...

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."

This option might improve draft position and signing bonuses for some of those seniors. They have a choice unlock every other year.

The Council also increased the roster limit in baseball for student-athletes impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, the only spring sport with such a limit.
