Governor dewine makes everything sound like gloom and doom. Listening to him speak makes you want to jump off a bridge.

Excellent leadership being shown by Governor DeWine not like the Feds.
"They have scalelike barbless feathers, flipperlike wings, and webbed feet and by the way also excellent athletic teams"

I see where the Ohio Valley has cancelled all sports for the year. This tells me they know something regarding scholarships and such. Will be interesting.

I hope this does not happen in the Horizon, as baseball is improved this year.

FRISCO, TX – The Southland Conference announced Saturday that the league will cancel all remaining spring sports competitions and championship events, effective immediately.  The decision was reached by the Conference’s presidential Board of Directors, in consultation with campus athletic directors, in full consideration of the health, safety and well-being of the league’s student-athletes, coaches, administrators, support personnel and fans on the league’s 13 campuses.  Southland members have been monitoring national, regional and local developments related to the worldwide COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic, and its impact on U.S. professional and collegiate sports, including Thursday’s announcement that NCAA Championship events will be cancelled through the spring.   
 
The Southland had previously announced the cancellation of all competitions through March 30, including its Men’s and Women’s Basketball Tournaments this week.  Now, in addition to the new competition and championship changes, athletic departments have also agreed to prohibit all team activities, organized or voluntary, through March 30.  Beyond that date, campus leaders will make determinations on other immediate and longer-term issues, such as team practice opportunities and other activities.  Athletic departments and Conference office staff will address future NCAA eligibility issues for current spring sports student-athletes, and other matters of importance to the membership.   Further, as with any legislative action, the Conference’s Board of Directors reserves the right to reconsider previous decisions.
 
The Southland’s spring sports offerings include baseball, softball, beach volleyball, men’s and women’s golf, men’s and women’s tennis, men’s and women’s outdoor track and field.  The Southland Bowling League Championship, scheduled for March 19-22, has also been cancelled.

Although nothing is official, the MVFC is expected to announce soon, The MVC has already made the announcement. This will end all spring session, with a possible exception of smaller squad sessions. The surgeon general is expected to announce 11 of less so I could imagine something will take place in the spring, but there are no official sessions.

Don't kill the messenger, the government (state) and the media are just telling us the painful truth.
