Iona withdraws from Mohegan Sun Bubbleville due to staff member testing positive for Covid. They were in the UMass pod with Siena, Delaware and South Florida. Not sure if they will try to add a different team or if they will split the remainder of that pod into other pods. Might mean we actually play Siena.
It will be a mixed bag like football. I can see schools like ours where there are no issues. Mainly because like Adaway said in the podcast, the players dont go out. Combine that with the fact students will be gone from Thanksgiving until almost the end of January, that is a large window of basically no exposure.
Will there be a lot of shuffling, postponements and other crap? Yes but I think they find a way to slog through a season.
With any luck, a vaccine will be out before the season ends, which could be a game changer.
Siena now has an open slot with Vermont backing out, perhaps they pull their head out of their ass and decide to play us? If that actually happens, its a good trade. Siena should be top 100 while Vermont I feel will be more in the 120-130 range.
