Tulane vs. USF series cancelled due to COVID

Post by randymc »

USF has COVID issues and that has led to cancellation of the games vs. the Bulls Friday, Saturday and Sun.

American Conf twitter uses term "postponed" but no word on rescheduling at this point, if at all.

I don’t know if there is a break between the last weekend and the tournament that can be used for make up games.

Our schedule says that the last regular season game is at Cincinnati on May 22nd. Tournament starts on May 25th

One suspects that, like they did in basketball, they may do some late-season schedule changing depending upon how many games folks have and availability.

I could see that happening if they have a team they think is on the bubble of making a regional.

It’s A lot different than basketball though.
The only way I see us playing USF this year is
A) if we shuffle opponents which will still result in us missing out on 4 scheduled games.
B) Tulane and USF both have opponents cancel for COVID in the same weekend

I don’t see this being made up in the midweek

May have worked if they scheduled the repeat opponents on the same weekend. If it had been done that way, we could swap USF for Memphis and let Memphis play USF’s partner school.

Minder was going to be resting this week whether we played or not. We needed to play these games and win them.

Wright state also had their next 2 series postponed. maybe salvage 2 games with someone like this?? probably too hard to do on short notice

There's no way it gets made up midweek. Only happens if one or the other is on the bubble and/or has other COVID cancellations that line up.

Bbbbbut there's no COVID in Florida! Cheerleader said so!

Nevermind the millions of high school and college kids who have descended on the state in the past month for Spring Break. I'm sure that had nothing to do with this whatsoever.

I'm sure the AAC is all about testing the wrong people, getting the results wrong, and having teams pay for travel and lodging for canceled games. :roll:

So just so I get this straight, you are saying that no one should be tested unless they have a fever?

I’ve been saying that for over a year. It’s like going to a doctor and asking him to run tests for no reason.
