Not so fast.
Now Army postpones it's first two games due to a suspension of Black Knight activities related to a small number of Covid cases at West Point.

Cases at AFA last week. If our military academies can't keep clean then the more open world of colleges can't possibly avoid the same outcome,

Those remaining ECAC teams will have a tough time finding games and fielding teams without the Ivies. The league cannot keep revising the schedule wholescale but filling in for RIT may w
Makes sense, maybe every Aha team should play an ECAC team 1 or 2 X.

BTW: The LIU/Army game was postponed over the weekend.

Happy NU has a Board that when we make a decision AND WELL THOUGHT OUGHT that it won't change a few days later due to a lack of due diligence, transparency and communication!

Union follows RPI in cancelling the season. ECAC down to 4 now: SLU, Clarkson, Colgate and Quinnipiac. The RIT reconsideration is unique in that the D-3 league they belong to in all other sports cancelled their winter sports seasons, yet since RIT is D-1 in Hockey they fall into a different category. Clarkson and SLU of the Liberty are still listed as playing while Liberty members RPI and Union are not. Better hope Clarkson and especially SLU stay in, for those account for the first 3 NU games with 2 this weekend with SLU.

Good news re RIT is back in the mix.

I can’t imagine the 4 remaining members of the ECAC hitting the ice. What the hell has happened to RPI?

Some on this site have to realize the health and well being of student athletes, staff, referees, etc is much more important than any games.
Take a deep breath and think! Please!
