Big East COVID Updates
« on: November 19, 2020, 03:34:57 PM »
DePaul is shutting down for 2 weeks due to COVID test results. Their first three games on November 25, 28, and December 1 will be cancelled.

Seton Hall is also shut down currently. That started on November 11th and their originally planned season opener against Winthrop on November 25th has been cancelled.

Connecticut is back to full activities today after having shut down on November 5th.

As a DePaw season ticket holder (in a normal season) I got your inside scoop. Via marketing email blast.

Statement from Head Coach Dave Leitao
"We have been able to sustain a level of productivity while facing the COVID-19 pandemic during the preseason, but unfortunately as positive cases have been increasing all around us, we now have to deal with it directly in our program. The attentiveness and understanding of the situation by our players and staff have been a priority since we all returned to campus this summer. We'll get through this together. We'll return to the practice floor and competition after we complete all mandated protocols and procedures."

Statement from Director of Athletics DeWayne Peevy
"We are disappointed the men's basketball program will be unable to start the season as planned after all the hard work our student-athletes, coaches, and staff have put into preparing for these games. Flexibility and patience will continue to be paramount this season as we navigate these unique times. I appreciate the hard work and support of our medical staff and athletic trainers as they work closely with each of our programs to ensure a safe and healthy environment to study, train, practice and compete."

If this whole 1 person tests positive shut down for 2 weeks things carries on. THere is a 0% chance we can complete this season.

It is legit not possible.

Sure it is. Every Big East team enters a bubble on January 2. Quarantine for 2 weeks. January 16-February 11, teams play approximately every 2 days to insure at least 13 games each.

It will be messy, but there are ways to do it.

Yeah a bubble would definitely work. But until its announced that it something they are going to legitamately aim for, this current plan is doomed to fail.

I actually think the opposite is true.  Criteria written today may look pretty ridiculous four months from now.

It's going to be messy and imperfect.  We are just going to have to live with that.

I guess that is fair, but then they should make a statement saying just that.  So that people don't cry (ha!) when the field is announced.

Getting basketball games played right now is a logistical nightmare. It may be possible (in a strictly enforced bubble), but it will require hard work, focus, frequent games, and some good luck.

Getting a proper education right now is a logistical nightmare. Colleges are opening, closing, switching back and forth between in-person and virtual, and uncertain what next semester will look like. A good education may be possible, but it will require hard work, focus, and flexibility to change learning method at a moment's notice.

The expectation that they will be able to do both at the same time - essentially hitting two differently moving targets simultaneously - seems pretty unrealistic.

Marquette starts its second semester January 25.  If they are in a bubble til mid February, I don't think it would be much of a problem.  Furthermore, what else are these players going to do when not playing / practicing?

Or you just give college basketball first dibs on the vaccine
By time the vaccine is approved and you go through two doses the basketball season will be over with.
You have to wait 30 days after the first dose to get the second dose. You are not considered safe until 14 days after second dose.

Pfizer said they’d have 50 million doses ready in December alone. Seems like they’ll get approval too. December 1st give everyone in college basketball the shot and then again on January 1st. Conference season and post season saved. Final Four here we come

It's more likely that we have a final four of us and three small schools that were the only teams able to actually participate in the tournament than a vaccine being prioritized for student athletes, in the second most profitable sport, in the 6th most important conference.

Remember that most of these vaccines require two doses, so 50 million doses only covers 25 million people.

Yup. And I'm guessing they will have two weeks between the end of the season and start of the tournament to get everyone into Indy and quarantined so the tourney goes off without a hitch.

So how much interaction is there between the UCONN Men's and Women's programs?  I know that at least for MU, in social media videos posted of the team lifting weights and such you can occasionally see members of the women's team, or men's lacrosse etc. in the background.  Would/could they have have purposely separated all teams to avoid an all sports suspension?

Yeah a bubble would definitely work. But until its announced that it something they are going to legitamately aim for, this current plan is doomed to fail.

They work but conferences are hurting financially which is why none have set one up yet. The loss of tourney revenue from 2020 (NCAA and BET) is really hitting them hard. harder than member institutions. For the BE to bubble 20+ people, per school, for a month, and put on 200+ games (if they are looking at a full schedule) would be ridiculously expensive and conferences have recognized it.

You have to cut down travel. I wouldn’t go as far as the Patriot League has but doing 2 game weekends (e.g., MU hosts PC Friday and Sunday) instead of the normal home and homes is probably the best scheduling model.

The optimism I hold is for what Rothstein calls “the Golden Window.,” during breaks when other students are not around over break. Then we have the closest thing to a bubble.

I agree with you Billy.  The NBA had the money to make it work.  I doubt the conferences make enough with basketball to make it worth their while.  (BTW, a full schedule of BE games only equals 110.)

Think about it this way.  The BE makes $40 million a year through its television contract with Fox.  For teams to get adequate rest AND play a full time schedule, that would require a bubble of six weeks.  Probably more like 7 or 8 if you include a BET too.  Also, Fox is going to have to agree to this.  Do they want all those games shoved into a six to eight week timeframe when they have three months of programming to fill?

The other option is that the BE does what it might do now.  Hope for the best.  And if 1/3 of the games get cancelled, that is still a more profitable option than a bubble with a full schedule.

Not a new Covid case in the BE...but an example of Nova showing scheduling creativity when a near future opponent announces a Covid issue. A few other teams around the NCAA have done this, and I suspect it will be the 'new normal' for this season.

Villanova wins Empire Classic, extends stay in 'Bubbleville' by adding game vs. Virginia Tech on Saturday

https://www.cbssports.com/college-basketball/news/villanova-wins-empire-classic-extends-stay-in-bubbleville-by-adding-game-vs-virginia-tech-on-saturday/

Temple was scheduled to play Virginia Tech on Saturday at Mohegan Sun, but that game could no longer happen. Plus: Villanova was scheduled to play at home vs. Temple on Dec. 3. The Wildcats and Hokies both needed to fill a game on the schedule. They could both be in Uncasville. The stars aligned.

So, according to a source, at 8 p.m. Saturday, Virginia Tech will play No. 3 Villanova at Mohegan Sun Arena. Due to the volume of football games on the slate, Villanova-Virginia Tech is scheduled to be played on ESPNews.

This seems like great real time thinking.  If a pair of games get cancelled because one of each games team tests positive, it would leave the two unaffected team available to play each other.  Only issue may be travel to get to the site quickly enough.  Makes for interesting game preparation.

Not a new Covid case in the BE...but an example of Nova showing scheduling creativity when a near future opponent announces a Covid issue. A few other teams around the NCAA have done this, and I suspect it will be the 'new normal' for this season.

Villanova wins Empire Classic, extends stay in 'Bubbleville' by adding game vs. Virginia Tech on Saturday

Temple was scheduled to play Virginia Tech on Saturday at Mohegan Sun, but that game could no longer happen. Plus: Villanova was scheduled to play at home vs. Temple on Dec. 3. The Wildcats and Hokies both needed to fill a game on the schedule. They could both be in Uncasville. The stars aligned.

So, according to a source, at 8 p.m. Saturday, Virginia Tech will play No. 3 Villanova at Mohegan Sun Arena. Due to the volume of football games on the slate, Villanova-Virginia Tech is scheduled to be played on ESPNews.

FS1 is not showing the Xavier game due to health guidelines?   I apologize if this has been addressed but what is the reason behind that?

Butler back on COVID protocol break. Game with SJU postponed. DePaul is still on break too.

Quote from: @BrianHamilton
Another Big East postponement, this time due to Butler continuing to follow protocols after its COVID-related pause. Monday's game against St. John's is pushed back to a later date TBD. Butler still plans to play Villanova next Wednesday (Dec. 16).

It's obviously going to be tough to get close to all these games in. Hopefully they extend the season by a couple of weeks. The CDC officially did reduce their recommendation to 7 days of quarantine and a negative test, so hopefully the shutdowns are shorter moving forward assuming everyone is healthy.

If out for 14 days. NKY would be canceled. Leaves then one day to get ready for Kansas State.
Apparently that's about 23 hours more than necessary to prep for K State

X pausing.

So as of today, X, Butler, DePaul and UConn? Have I missed any?

This is getting silly. Get in a real bubble, or give it up (right after MU beats UCLA).
