    Only time will tell if playing in the fall was the right decision.

    Colorado HS football is a go as of last night for fall games starting in Oct. Just 6 games only with a minimum of 4 games to make the playoffs. only 8 teams will make the playoffs in each division. Or they can play in the spring with the same rules applying. Championships in both the spring and fall.

    Just got another email from the USAFA that the Army game will be on Nov. 11 at West Point.

    And the sequel is as good as the original. For your morning entertainment. Caution: if you are a PAC fan you might be triggered.

What a win over ISU. Enjoy the season everyone. Faith and hope, doom and gloomers can start another thread somewhere else.
    And nOw the PAC is preparing for a vote to restart, and the Mountain West and MAC are mulling it over,

    Looks like at least 4 teams in the RMAC have scheduled 5 games to play this fall, with a Oct. - Nov time frame. Colorado Mesa has one game scheduled against West Texas. The others stayed close to home with home and home games like the GNAC.

    I guess it depends. Most of the services were still being offered but in different formats (at least at NW)
    - not switching from full-time faculty to TA/adjunct
    - tutoring available via Zoom
    - student programming available online
    - etc

    Almost every school refunded housing and dining costs in the spring, and obviously so. Interesting enough, with no sports being played, one of the areas students have the most validity in wanting a refund would be fees associated with athletics.If they're not playing then I can see why students would want refunds on that.

    Everything I have read is those lawsuits are a shot in the dark. There is no contracted guarantee that classes will be in person. If you listened to most administrators over the summer, they stated they "intended to be on-campus in the fall".

    Additionally, as was mentioned above, if students want a different rate for taking online courses then they should be aware that most schools charge MORE for online courses.

    Now I am wondering how many schools will drop down a division because of the virus, or will any D2 schools drop down to NAIA to save on costs and travel. This may be only a temporary move in some cases for schools to save money, then move back up. Students got to be wondering why they are paying full tuition to learn in a classroom but have on-line learning at home. I am hearing some gripes about it.
    Minnesota State charges a fee for online courses - so you have to pay more to take the class online. I've argued online classes should be less since they use fewer university resources by default. That's during a normal school year.

    I would never be comfortable paying the same (or more) for a full year on online courses from a four-year university, especially without the option to be in-person. As a recent graduate with some experience in online courses, I would strongly recommend anyone faced with the reality of a full year of online school do one of three things:

    1. Take the duration of the online-only period off and work/pursue a hobby/volunteer/build a resume/intern/etc.
    2. Transfer to a community college and take the same courses at a steep discount and transfer them back in.
    3. Go to school half time, spend the other half doing #1.

    I say half time because I believe FAFSA requires 50% enrollment for financial aid. Scholarships are obviously a bit different but I got permission to use one for part time enrollment once. Any student pursuing #1 or #3 should also be working on CLEP tests. No reason not to take that route.

    The current situation in which college administrators find themselves is a real life graduate level course in strategic planning and decision making. Almost every direction puts them in an over the cliff position. Professors in these areas can sit back, observe and their next case study text book nearly writes itself. What a time to be alive.
    That aspect is interesting - and I certainly don't have the answers myself. I've just come across a couple instances where administrators seemed to just think that the students would have the self control/awareness to not party for a year - which isn't going to happen.

    I am not surprised by the lawsuits. And the schools say they are hurting for monies.
