Middlebury is the first to postpone ALL athletics..who will be next?
Cornell and Princeton.
If the Ivy's and NESCAC's do this again, they will damaged their hockey programs permanetly. This virus isn't going away, move on with your lives, just like the flu.
Maybe they will grant them a 6th year so kids can play college hockey until they are 30!
Funny but honestly if they do all the 02s and 03s will get screwed even more than they already have. What a mess.
Based on the C19 trends cannot see Ivy or NESCAC resuming in early January
Even a hockey east team got affected already.
Northeastern U was to play several games in Switzerland in December. That tournament/ event got cancelled due all the new noise and now they have to sit idle for about a month. Their last game was December 4th.
Their nxt gm is not slated until Jan 7th.
There is no good reason to pause or suspend hockey ... but it's going to happen on a wide scale. There's a election coming in 2022.
