    Notice I mistakenly left Winona out of the fun above. Winona has a lot returning next year so I would put them in category 2. They may struggle to replace wagner’s offensive production, however. Also, Winona needs additional interior depth. Couple issues to address, but still plenty to work with going into next season.
    I wondered, after reading your opening post, whether I was delusional to think Winona showed some flashes of being a really good team. Glad you added them later. :)

    You're right. Losing Wagner is tough as he often would just put the team on his shoulders. The Warriors will still have that type of guy in Kevion Taylor. I'm excited to watch him play one more season. IF the coaching staff can find a transfer big man this offseason and that person can be impactful, the Warriors could be sleepers to win the conference.

      I’d like to see what an offseason at the 1 can do for Seales. I like the ball in his hands more. It isn’t his natural position, and he wasn’t expecting to play there this year. If after the offseason it’s apparent it won’t work/fit, then work Baumgardner back in there when he’s ready (if they don’t grab a PG transfer).

      If Mack doesn’t return, Jamal Nixon would be the lone senior. And Kramer would be the only junior (assuming Baumgardner gets medical redshirt - Quincy Anderson didn’t play at all due to injury and had a redshirt left anyway). Will be extremely sophomore heavy team next year, with a few freshmen mixed in as well.
      Looks like Baumgardner is transferring from Mankato.

        Any idea where he is going?

          Not surprised to see this become official. It’ll be a little bit of time before he’s ready to play again, it was a very bad injury. Hearing he was going closer to home (Columbus, Ohio)

          Looks like Kaedrick Williams is gone too. What gives?

            I have no idea. I'm out of the loop. My sources have dried up like a wadi in Saudi Arabia.

              Not sure on Williams. Guessing Moorhead was just too far from Louisiana.

                Even the driest wadi is replenished eventually. So, may a monsoon of sources find your bent ear!

                  While I understand winter sports seniors technically completed their regular season, the seniors aren’t playing just to play their 30 game regular season schedule and be satisfied. Most of the seniors did indeed play their seasons completely. However, the seniors that were in the playoffs got just as much out of their seasons as the spring sports seniors did. Since you likely can’t pick and choose which seniors get to come back (Northern being only one in NSIC), you let them all have another year.
                  I used to think giving the seniors another chance was the right thing to do until I saw this posted over on USCHO. Basically, this is no different the a senior getting a season ending injury in the middle of February. You can't control most injuries and you can't control when a pandemic is going to break out. Sometimes life just throws a wrench into things.

                  Also, is it fair to the recruits coming in next year to say, "sorry, we no longer have a roster spot for you as none of, or only a couple of our seniors are moving on". And what about scholarship planning for the rosters? "Yeah, I know I promised you some scholarship money for next year, but Jimmy is coming back next year, so I am giving it to him."

                    And BSU was on the path to make the NCAA Tournaement, their first since 2010.

                      This may have nothing to do with NSIC basketball- but it could. King is from Caledonia- could he be going to a conference team?

                      Jacks MBB sophomore guard Owen King has entered the transfer portal. After playing about 16 minutes per game in 33 as a freshman and averaging 4.1 PPG, He played in 17 last year averaging 7 minutes & 1.1 PPG

                        That would be quite the set of "gets" at the D2 level. Since the older King never used his redshirt year, I'd imagine they are both looking for a decent D1 landing place, but who knows?

                        That being said, if they end up in the NSIC, that's a backcourt that would rival even NWMSU's starting guards.

                          I haven't been able to check for awhile. Lots of new stuff to ponder.

                          1.. I think there are going to be a lot of transfers in the next few months and everything for all these kids in in complete limbo. There will be big surpises too in transfers. Just because it is so turbulent.

                          2. Does the market crash kill Augie going to the Summit? Curious.

                          3. How many fans don't return. ability to pay will be some of it, but how many are going to just say they don't miss it. I will be there with the NBA and NHL probably. I don't miss it so far.

                          4. I think some of these kids will be away from campus and get way too many people in their ears giving them bad advice. That will affect the conference more than we think.

                          5. I wonder how big this will all cause the NCAA rules to be changed regarding transfers etc. I could see a major revamp of all this.

                          6. How likely is college online classes to become the norm? That will change college athletics.

                          i could come up with about another 10 things, but I am too exahausted with all the news to think. Stay safe people

                            All this considered looking forward to Mustang football and basketball returning soon. Miss it. I was also excited about Mustang baseball as they were off to a solid start and the weather was actually decent.

                            Oh, and by the way, man some of this just sucks. Marshall Tigers (and my son) didn't get to play in the State Tournament after an epic battle with Mankato East who was on a 25 game winning streak. Gut punch. And the first game of the State on Wednesday , March 18 was my son's 17th birthday. That was going to be a memory of a lifetime getting to be on The Barn floor at the state tournament on his birthday. Crazy

                            Instead it was a birthday he won't forget for lots of other reasons.

                            So yeah sports matter and we miss them. a lot

                              In terms of the coronavirus shutdown, or in general?

                              SMSU has heavily expanded into online classes, even in the past couple of years. When I started, there were a few options - now there are entire majors that have been mirrored online. Sometime between 2012-2014, they adopted the idea that every class is a "hybrid" class. That's not necessarily true in practice, though the option is definitely there.

                                Great post Mr. Mustang

                                If Covid19 persists, I could see students wanting to be closer to home and transfers.

                                A recession is the last thing Augustana would want when they are trying to raise athletic capital. Could easily see the administration pulling the plug on D1.

                                My belief is that fans will stay loyal. Pro and big time D1 sports with outrageous ticket and concession prices certainly could suffer.

                                Do not see rule changes for transferring athletes.

                                Do not think Covid19 persists and expect vaccines will become available. No kid wants to take online classes when they could be on campus.

                                This was going to be a year where #1 AU softball had a chance to repeat as NC.Bummer.

                                Sports are a great diversion from the monotony of everyday life. Maybe cheap local HS. and small college sports will have a renaissance.
