Multi-Regional Topics / Re: Covid Impact on Conference Scheduling
« on: August 10, 2020, 04:24:38 pm »
in the minutes of the July 30 D3 championships committee meeting, I found this towards the bottom. Dave has probably touched on it in a podcast, but for the visual learners among us:

Quote
One area of continued discussion is the minimum level of sport sponsorship to merit a championship this year. On this topic, members continued an analysis based on varying sponsorship percentages by sport to determine how best to provide a quality championship experience and suggested the following guideline (to be finalized during a future meeting): sports with fewer than 50 sponsors require 90% participation; sports with between 51 and 200 sponsors require 70% participation, and sports with more than 200 sponsors require 60% participation.

we have so many in the SUNY system too, and I would hate to lose any of them down to the community college level, but I just don't know anymore what may happen.

the P5 conferences and the rest of FBS will all fold up shop for the fall within 48 hours, and that will be that.

or maybe the #WeWantToPlay movement that got hot on social media last night will give administrators the cover to keep going and allow themselves to keep making millions and bazillions of dollars. I don't know anymore! Everything changes every 10 seconds!!

Despite trying my best to understand the rules and hierarchy of college football, I remain confused.  In order to play an intercollegiate football game, it seems that there must be some level of approval from the state government, the NCAA board of governors, the individual league, and the school itself.  Am I correct that every entity in this chain has the option of cancelling the game?

the NCAA BOG can only determine whether or not the playoffs happen. We have a small handful of D3 institutions still planning on fall football/sports despite everyone else postponing/cancelling and the playoffs cancelled.

"The league" is just the schools themselves making a series of decisions. For example, there is almost no such entity as "the Liberty League." It's two people in an office on the RPI campus, one of which is replaced every two years and the other has next to no executive powers.

The state government can, if it chooses, set conditions under which a contest may or may not go forward depending on the meeting of those conditions, sure. Isn't that obvious by this point?

Maybe I don't understand the question.

Fall Championships Canceled: https://www.d3sports.com/notables/2020/08/fall-championships-cancelled-whats-next

It's strange, I always believed this would be the path, I even advocated as such, but now that it's happened it doesn't feel any easier to take.

Dave, would you say now begins the time to get well and truly concerned for the future of many (a handful, a dozen, a few dozen, 100 or more?) Division III athletic departments/institutions?

Indeed.

SUNYAC, maybe?  I haven't seen an announcement from Buff St football yet.  Although it may be inevitable

BSC's release made it pretty clear that there will be no sports there in the fall.

Empire 8 is entirely out for the fall. Time for the LL to pack it in already.

yup, Union is out. Maybe a move to the spring. I have to think that's where we're going in total...there isn't going to be any LL football or LL anything else this fall. Time to accept that.

as I see it, these are the possible paths for athletics at Wesley and DSU.

Door #1 - DSU (D1 FCS) and DSU-Wesley (D3) remain separate campuses and athletic departments.

Door #2 - they merge together into one DSU athletic department in the MEAC. DSU could add any or all of the four sports that Wesley sponsors but they do not (field hockey, men's golf, men's lacrosse, men's soccer). So call that 2A if they do and 2B if they don't.

but have we considered the outside possibility of Door #3? They merge...into Wesley's existing D3 status. Maybe the athletic department rebrands and maybe it doesn't, maybe one or more of DSU's unique sports (bowling, equestrian and women's tennis) gets added to Wesley's portfolio.
