      Well, hopefully see a few of your folks at Lubbers next season (barring some post season game. :-) )

        The RMAC will go with a report date of August 24 for fall sports and play a conference schedule only, which most likely means games will be starting on September 19th or 26th if all goes well.

          Cisco and I are planning to be there. Hopefully you can point us to some good Allendale/Grand Rapids places to visit.

                Well the RMAC Presidents have given themselves until Aug. 24 to make a final decision. With what's happened with the Miami Marlins, I don't see a season happening, even a shortened season. But I hope I am wrong for the players.

                  Excited about potentially playing a few RMAC games with basically no shot at there being any sort of playoffs? I would hate to be a college kid using 25% of my eligibility for this joke.

                    I think they should move D2 to the spring this year for this very reason. Even if there are playoffs, the winner would have a giant asterisk by that title.

                      I won’t disagree here but just totally ****canning the whole season sucks. My son has busted his ass and I’d love to see him be on the field this fall even if that means it wastes a year of eligibility. He’s on track to graduated early (thankfully he got his moms brains) and I don’t know that he’d stick around another year if they give him another year anyway. Maybe he would I don’t know.

                        Congrats to your son, I hope the season can take place. Not sure there's a good solution at the moment, just hope the NCAA has eligibility solutions in case this season gets cut even shorter.

                          It not going to be ideal but I’d love to see any kind of football even if they keep all eligibility and basically scrimmage or something.

                            Honestly...I agree with how they are going about it. They pushed the start back to get the students back into school August 17th. That gives them some time to see if there will be any outbreaks before the 1st game is to be played. There is also a NCAA rule in place that says 50% of the season must be played in order to call it a complete season. If less than 50% is played, all players will get another year of eligibility. Once it gets into week 6 and that game is played, it counts as a season. So....give them credit they are trying for all the players sake, we'll just see what happens and hope for the best!!! It might just be a preseason season, but at least its a start.

                              That 50% could be only 4 games this fall. 4 versus a full season of 11 games plus playoffs. I would take the year off and play next year.

                                Or even if they do manage to play, say, 6 conference games. Is that worth a year of eligibility? I guess it depends on the individual but you work your ass off for much of your life and have 4 seasons to play. As said, there isn't a good solution here but hopefully the NCAA steps in and figures out the eligibility issue if the season winds up being a handful of games and no chance of playoffs.
