      Once upon a time, the MAC was a force in track and XC. Now members are dropping it like a hot potato to save money.

        Central Michigan may not be able to drop these two sports since it will drop them to below the minimum for D1 men's sports.

          I read that. The AD is hoping for the NCAA to give them a waiver. Must be hoping for sympathy from them- good luck with that.

          • When I started this thread I didn't think it would last near this long, but there's been a lot of bad news because of the coronavirus pandemic. I've lost track of all the sports programs that have been cut and seasons that have been cancelled. *On a positive note, Erskine College of Due West, South Carolina is supposed to begin playing football this coming fall after a 69 year hiatus. As far as I know they haven't changed their plans, so here's to Flying Fleet football (a D2 independent in 2020).

            Bring back Humboldt State football.

            • Talk about overcoming obstacles to start a football program-fly high Fleet!

              • While I wish them luck, a small school (@800 wiki) and a small town (@ 1300 wiki), I think it might be tough to pull in enough to support a program. Could it be a strategy to increase enrollment.

                • I missed this last week but I just saw that Owens CC in Toledo is suspending Fall and Winter sports with some hope for Spring 2021. I'm not super knowledgeable on them but I do know they are a pretty solid JUCO basketball program with a good record of moving players to NCAA DI and DII.

                  • Well this is completely opposite of the CSU system. U-Cal system to be open in the fall.

                        Any chance the CSU system may revisit their decision. The possibility of athletes in all sports being poached seems very real.

                          I wondered about that too. At the time I thought that the state system was jumping the gun and should have waited.

                            The University of Cambridge won't hold in-person classes until next summer. I think some of these schools are jumping the gun for the sake of being "aware" of the situation.

                              • The CFL won't start until September- or may not this year at all.

                                I saw my first CFL in person game last June in Winnipeg, not knowing that they would become the Grey Cup champs.

                                I have an invitation to see the Saskatchewan Roughriders but that will be delayed until at least 2021.
