Unfortunately, I think that there isn't likely to be a "safe" place where a student-athlete can transfer to and really guarantee they will have fall sports in 2020. Everything will have an element of doubt.
I suspect it's less about going somewhere else to play as it is "if I'm not playing football anyway, I would have gone to [OTHER SCHOOL/STATE U]

As I understand the rules for D3 football, until you show up for the first day of practice, you are not "committed" to a school. If my understanding is correct, how many student athletes will/might "jump ship" and go to another D3 school that is having fall sports to stay playing with continuity? Germinareo(sp) did that a season or two back. Are schools being reluctant to pull the trigger on calling the season to try to limit this kind of activity? As the season grows closer I suspect we'll see a lot of strange decisions being reached by both students and administrations, so much so that we all end up collectively scratching our heads.

I'm much less bullish on the idea that there is going to be some great migration of student athletes moving from schools that have opted out of fall sports to places that haven't (so far).  I have lots of reasons, but a big one is that application deadlines for Fall 2020 are WAY gone.  The Joe G. transfer that you mentioned was done by mid April 2019 for the Fall 2019 semester.  Now, given the cash hemorrhage from Spring 2020 and schools really needing as many students enrolled as possible, some warp speed processing of transfer applications, aid packages, course and housing registration could happen (and will in spots, I'm sure), but I just can't see it happening this late on a grand scale.

Just came across this Twitter thread discussing some of the approaches and considerations for campuses in re-integrating students, based on conversations with various students. Reminded me of some recent discussions on here about what infrastructure and planning schools need to have in place

I see that Carleton has cancelled all fall sports.  That's worrisome to say the least.  Of course, Carleton is not nearly so dependent upon intercollegiate athletics to achieve its enrollment goals, but it will be interesting to see if other MIAC colleges follow suit.  I understand the conference presidents are meeting next week.

As you say, Carleton (and their almost $900 million endowment) will have an easier time weathering the storm than your typical ARC school.  Iowa Covid stats have been looking strong for a resumption of fall school and sports.  Hopefully we can stay on tract for that.  At a minimum conference-only games.

New HC for Amherst.  Anyone know anything about Coach Sears?

For ephoops' research on the Sears hire - https://www.amherststudent.com/article/amherst-names-four-new-head-coaches-as-college-prepares-for-canceled-fall-sports-season

Curious to get d-mac's sheepish take on the fact that returning volleyball and squash players were part of the hiring process, but seemingly not the hoops players.

Is this because of some other facts discussed and supported elsewhere, or is this a conclusion you've drawn from the fact that the article did not specify that players were consulted?

Some other facts discussed and supported elsewhere.

So ... to revisit this ... not actual facts.
