    Maricopa (Arizona) community college league has suspended all athletics for the 2020-21 season. This is a high quality JC basketball league that we see kids come into the GNAC from.

    *update The College Presidents of the 10 schools now say they have only recommended that Athletics be suspended but no formal action has been ratified.

    CCCAA (California Community Colleges) have announced they will have a athletics seasons under all the scenarios in their plans for reopening.

    “We are very encouraged by the news of today’s CCCAA Board of Directors meetings,” said Bakersfield College Athletic Director Sandi Taylor, who is retiring effective June 25. “While there remain challenges, it is great news for all our coaches and student athletes to know that the 2020-21 year of sports are still on”

    Looks like the CSU system might have been right: California had its worst day yet yesterday. People need to quit taking this lightly, starting with universities and their desperate athletic departments.

    The UA President had a press conference with the governor this afternoon. Johnson said the UA is a 5 step plan to reopen (A-E). He said UA would move to step B shortly and expected to be at Step C in time for fall classes to start. Step C is 50% reopening of classes and “athletics and events will resume using safety and capacity precautions, Johnsen said.”

    But yes I specifically was only talking about Alaska and Alaska only. Not speaking about where other states are with this was on purpose, I assure you. It’s clear that many states are on a much different time schedule with all of this and they should be. Perhaps we are being too aggressive in opening, time will surely tell. But for now, in a wave of bad news, just a little optimism that things are headed back to normal isn’t a bad thing.

    I’ve already gone on record that sports in general, at the high school and college level, should probably all be pushed back to the spring. I still believe that. A delayed season is far Preferable to a cancelled season.

    Alaska is opening up almost completely this Friday, and that includes large gatherings such as concerts, festivals and sporting events provided the venue is in contact with state advisors. Alaska still has a 14 day quarantine for people entering the state from outside but that is to be reviewed on June 2nd.

    Provided there is no major relapse in cases/deaths, it appears the Alaska teams will be ready to open the college basketball season on October 15th.
    1. There will be more cases now, that's for sure. It'll be interesting to see what human behavior is going to do with everything being thrown open pretty wide. We're lucky to live in a place that's pretty physically distanced without having to sacrifice too much daily.
    2. Alaska's teams won't be ready to go if UAA and UAF don't open their campuses to in person classes and remain online, because most of our players don't live in Alaska.
    3. Even if Alaska has college students on campus this fall and things are awesome in Alaska, that won't matter if the rest of the GNAC or the NCAA makes the call that things aren't swimmingly awesome everywhere else. Our league's headquarters are in Portland and the center of the league revolves around Seattle. I don't think the league is going to weigh Fairbanks and Anchorage too closely in their analysis of how to move forward with sports.
    4. There is still so much to figure out and evolve before October, just cause we're opening up this Friday doesn't mean mid October is going to be all things normal. I know you got a kid on the team and thus need to be optimistic about the season, but what Dunleavy announces today has almost no bearing on what will be happening in October, especially since he doesn't have any say in what college athletics will look like. That said, I appreciate the optimism and continually feel like a Debbie Downer in my responses to you; sorry for that. I would be only too happy to have you be right on this one. Let's hope so.

    Oregon has a no-big-crowds rule through September. Where I live in Idaho, they're slowly opening up in phases, but our number of cases and death keep going up rather rapidly every day. They'll probably have to shut it down again as most people around don't practice the guidelines and get all whiny when they're told to do so. At the beginning, Idaho was doing well, we're now percentage-wise in relation to our population, one of the worst in the nation for slowing the spread of the virus.

    I think college basketball ball will be played this year; I'm skeptical sbout college football. Oxford University is moving pretty quickly on a vaccine by the end of September or October or November. The NCAA should just move college football to the spring and call it a day.

    I think they can start college basketball in January and extend the season a little bit, maybe play some more non-conference tournaments at one site to save money.

    CSU Dominguez Hills just got a big commit from 6'10" San Bernardino Valley College transfer Cam Butler. Interesting he committed to a CSU program given what is going on. He even passed up like 3 Division 1 offers including Cal Poly. Also held an offer from CWU. Highlights: https://twitter.com/camm2x/status/1244404374140416000

    You think online classes would work better for athletes, considering how little they are actually in class due to travelling for away games. Weird.

    I just think whole NCAA should cancel fall sports, otherwise it should be a school by school decision, or at least the CCAA members should have the chance to play the season as an independent (though it would be hard to find games to schedule)

    You'll be hearing something soon. San Jose State, Fresno State, and San Diego State are part of the CSU system and the NCAA says no on-campus classes, no football. This affects the Mountain West. Sac State and Cal Poly are in the CSU system and in the Big Sky for football and that hampers that conference. Most junior and senior athletes are deep into their academic program, some will transfer, many won't. I saw some cool senior update videos on WOU spring athletes, most were moving on in life even with being granted another year. WOU's best softball player, I believe earned some national honors last year and would've been up for similar honors this year, said she was happy to be moving on towards her career. One senior said she was coming back, three said they were moving on; similar in track and baseball, too.

    The CCAA is very wrong to make this decision so early, with 4 months before the season even begins. This is terrible for all of the athletes. However, maybe it is for the best to make this call now, so that those athletes can have time to transfer to other programs, perhaps in Texas which is already reopening things.
    This is a public health decision as the United States had 17,000 new cases of the virus found yesterday. Texas maybe opening things up right now, they will be closing things in August. It's better to make the decision early so the campuses can prepare for the fall. The NCAA is stupid to be dragging out the college football season decision into May. That decision should have been done yesterday.

    Oxford University is in the lead to find a vaccine and they say the earliest would be the end of September and that's probably not going to happen. They know a little bit about science at Oxford.
