Northeast Conference cancelled fall sports for 2020. Will miss it but it was the right decision.

Tough call, but prudent at this time, plus nice statement from Tom P.

Well it was a nice try (resuming sports), but this was inevitable. it was the safe decision. Given the present environment, attempting to resume fall sports would have a huge downside and not much of an upside.

CIAC can do it, why can't the NEC?

Why is HS sports safe, or has an acceptable risk, and college sports does not?

Our comish penned a lot of words to basically say nothing but one thing she kind of alludes to is fall sports in the spring. At this point I think it’s a bad idea for football, not due to the virus rather the quick turnaround that would be required to start back up in the fall. Guess we’ll wait and see but considering she alludes to financial burden, not too hopefull for hoops at the moment.

Holy kick the can down the road Batman. Why does she keep doing this? Just cancel them. Why would spring football be an option when other leagues are playing now?! By the time they finish they will be getting ready for September. Makes no sense just call it already. 🙄🤦🏻‍♂️

Meanwhile there is a full schedule of college football games every Saturday. Why is that?
