    Moody's wasn't optimistic regarding higher ed. in general given possible impacts on enrollment, etc.

    The other issue is that state governors may rescind stay-at-home orders on varied timeframes, so even traveling to those states to play in an empty stadium would be an issue.

      could help the airlines industry get back on track, provided proper precautions were put into place, ….sanitizing planes and arenas and testing before being allowed to board plane ( they have 5 min test?).

        We could see the teams return to campus on June1.
        Best to remember these are kids and they are doing everything they can to entertain us, be scholars, and all in all be great humans. Jackedforlife

          Looks like 'Yotes' game at ISU will likely be at half capacity.

          Wonder if similar strategy will be used in Brookings for Butler game.

            If this is a strategy to be able to play games it will be interesting to see what schools that have season ticket sales over 50% of their capacity will do.

              Ohio State has mentioned using their points system to prioritize access.

              A related question is what percentage of season ticket holders will opt not to attend.

                I'm guessing many will opt not to attend, but I would guess they'll be selling their tickets for a pretty penny with a limited number available. Crazy to think that someone with season tickets and lower priority may have to keep them in order to keep building priority, but purchase tickets on top of their season tickets just to go to the game.

                  I'd hope that those those having requisite priority level but not planning to attend due to COVID would have option of "tolling" their priority ranking until 2021 while opening up the seats for lower priority individuals who would attend.

                  An alternative would be to allow folks to forego any refund if they won't attend games this season due to safety concerns to allow receipt of a credit for 2021 tickets. Then their seats could be available for 2020 only.
