When is the rest of the BE schedule going to be announced? 
I would take the Rick SLU program right now.

That's been a frustration. I like to release previews in the order we play teams, but the lack of a full schedule means it's just kind of random now.

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

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

It's pretty clear to me that the BE will be bubbling in January.

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.

You actually have a degree from Marquette?

Quote from: muguru
No...and after reading many many psosts from people on this board that do...I have to say I'm MUCH better off, if this is the type of "intelligence" a degree from MU gets you. It sure is on full display I will say that.

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.

What, you still throwing up bricks? What is this, a Masons convention? Clank, clank! I need, like, a welding torch to play in this league! I got an idea, let's just stop right now and gather up all these bricks and let's build a shelter for the homeless so maybe your mother will have a place to stay

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.

Well, the players could get this if they really get sick, but it will more likely go to folks like me who are over 65.

Butler has placed all basketball activities on hold after a positive test from Wednesday following their opener with Western Michigan. Their Sunday game against Eastern Illinois has been postponed. No additional timetable yet.

If out for 14 days. NKY would be canceled. Leaves then one day to get ready for Kansas State.

And now Creighton released a statement they are shutting down and will not be playing in the Crossover Classic in Sioux Falls (Battle for Atlantis replacement). Not sure how many games they will be missing or when they will resume play.
They never did indicate how long they would be shutdown for but the shutdown appears to be over as they just announced they'll be playing NDSU on Sunday, FS1.

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.

The announcement of NDST came out days ago. Was update in the TV thread.

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.

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?
