NAIA released their Fall sports guidelines.

The return to play threshold is interesting and they'll have  reduced seasons.

The "specificity" in this statement  ::) ::) ::)

"The threshold goal is for about half the participating institutions in each sport to receive clearance from local authorities to return to competition before the season can begin."

With a nod to TitanQ for the idea (he tweeted about IWUs record for the 1918-1919 season - coming out of a pandemic),  I set about to look at Hope's record that season.  Some interesting opponents for sure. 

Not too many season you see Hope go 4-0 versus Michigan State (Michigan Agricultural College) and Western Michigan (Western State), but 2-2 versus YMCA teams...

1918-19 (8-4) Clarence Lokker
 Grand YMCA 34, Hope 12
 Camp Custer 22, Hope 15
 Hope 27, Muskegon 26 (ot)
 Hope 29, Western State 25
 Hope 21, Michigan Agricultural College 18
 Hope 29, Northwestern Naperville, Ill. 19
 Hope 62, Grand Rapids YMCA 17
 Hope 26, Michigan Agricultural College 20
 Hope 34, Western State 26
 Hope 31, Holland YMCA 23
 Muskegon YMCA 38, Hope 23
 Detroit Rayles 26, Hope 17

Apparently, North Central was founded as North Central College in Plainfield in 1861, then they changed the name to North-Western College, then they changed it back to North Central in 1926.

Two wins over Michigan State too.

I think Albion is now 1-11 against MSU.  There's not a 1918-1919 season listed on gobrits.com.  :(  It skips from 1915-1916 (1-3) to 1919-1920 (3-13).

Also, another Albion recruit:

In October, 1918, the local board of health decreed that every non-essential public meeting was prohibited in an effort to stamp out the Spanish influenza. That action included the public schools, churches, theatres, conventions, fraternal societies, dances. Even Albion College complied with the order and no classes were held there for a time.[/b]

MAC (Michigan State) was a founding member of the MIAA.  The older buildings on MSU's campus on the North side of the Red Ceder River have a very MIAA feel to them.

While we're on the topic of responses to epidemics, you might read this interesting link about how Grand Rapids tried to deal with the 1918 Spanish flu:

https://www.influenzaarchive.org/cities/city-grandrapids.html#

It's a long article, but worth the read if you have the time. My favorite part is this paragraph which rings true to me, and which contains themes that resonates today as well:

On the other side of the debate where those who held that the closure order was an onerous burden, or who simply believed that it provided little or no protection against the spread of epidemic influenza. Members of the city’s seventeen Christian Reformed churches, with their emphasis on regular church attendance, were particularly upset by the closure order. They argued that schools, which met five days a week and contained physically undeveloped children more susceptible to disease, were kept open while churches, which met only once a week, were ordered closed. 14 High school football teams continued to practice, but bemoaned that their games had been cancelled. They even offered to play spectator-less games, to no avail.

According to the article, Grand Rapids had two closure orders in effect in late 1918--one lasting from October 20 to November 7, and the second running from December 14 through Christmas Eve of that year. That's a total of 28 days, a number we blasted past this year by mid-April.

I read through some of Albion’s archives of The Pleiad, and Albion did cancel classes for a week in October 1918: https://archives.albion.edu/items/show/1553#?c=0&m=0&s=0&cv=0

I also found a mention of basketball in the February 20, 1919 edition (https://archives.albion.edu/items/show/1565#?c=0&m=0&s=0&cv=0) saying,

“During the series of the inter-fraternity basketball schedule which has just been completed close observers of the game were impressed with the wealth of basketball material on Albion’s campus this year, and regrets were constantly exchanged that it was impossible for Albion to have been represented in the M. I. A. A. race of this winter.

Only the lack of a suitable playing floor kept Albion from putting out an all-college team this season, and this same condition has prevailed here for several years past, and probably will continue until such time as a new gymnasium is added to the present equipment of buildings.”

Kresge was built in 1925 (first game in 1926), but I believe that Albion played games at Albion High School during at least some of the seasons between 1919 and 1925.

Interestingly, on the same page, there’s an article about changing the school colors from pink and green to purple and gold.  I didn’t realize that maroon and gold was also in consideration, but I’m glad the students ultimately voted for purple-- no confusion with future conference opponents!

Do any of these uniforms still exist? Or a color photo of some?

Not that I've seen, but it seems like there must be something somewhere.  I'll have to check my Albion sesquicentennial history book, though I think all of the photos are black and white.
