In the absence of games to watch, one can enjoy a few minutes of this :

If they stick with the 14-round time frame, four teams will* play 13 and five teams will play 12.
With a 9 team league, 9 rounds of 4 games yield 8 played by each team.
And of course 18 rounds yield the normal full 16 game conference schedule.
No quantity between 9 and 18 will produce a balanced schedule.
*barring cancellations, obviously

My previous post is defective, specifically "No quantity (of rounds) between 9 and 18 will produce a balanced schedule."
If six teams play in a round and three get a bye, each team could have one home and one road game during a three-round segment.
So let's say 9 rounds are played with only one team getting a bye. This yields 8 games (4 home 4 away) played per team, as in the first half of a regular conference schedule.
In round 10, teams A B and C get a bye, round 11 has D E and F on bye, round 12 G H and I.
After 12 rounds, each team would total 5 home and 5 road games.
The "bye teams" in rounds 10-12 could possibly make up a game or two postponed during earlier rounds.

Rose has their first positive test for a player today.  They were going to keep players during break but now practices have been cancelled.   Their game on dec 5 against Adrian is still on at this point

Wheaton just announced that they will begin Spring Semester remote only and not until Jan 19.  Best case scenario maybe students back on campus Feb 1st?  8th?  Obviously athletes could possibly return sooner.

With positivity at 15% or so in Illinois ( and much higher in neighboring states) right now, probably the best we could hope for in December/January is that things are about the same.  But even in that very optimistic circumstance, I find it hard to believe the CCIW President's would vote for competition to begin.  I hope I'm wrong on all that.

The new Elmhurst roster :

Kween Jean is the most prominent of those eligible to return but are not listed.
And now I go back to the tv and a Barnaby Jones rerun.
