Spring Practice

Normally Spring Practice is comprised of 15 days. Any reason the NCAA wouldn't allow them to be performed in the summer? Maybe allow practice to start earlier in the Fall?

Depends on how the coronavirus is tracking. Though right now, warm weather doesn't seem to be a deterrent, as its spreading pretty rapidly in a number of tropical countries.

I would imagine if things calm down, the NCAA might allow some exceptions to some spring or summer practices. Right now my concern is that I've seen some people saying there might not be a season at all. Hopefully it doesn't come to that.

Cancelled Season?

Some are projecting the 2020 season will be cancelled:

I will lose it if that happens.

Just today (or maybe yesterday?) the UK doctor that was widely cited to predict a very high number of deaths significantly lowered prediction based new information. It's welcoming news. This virus may be highly asymptomatic and many people may have already had it. I really hope this subsides soon and we can all get on with our lives INCLUDING Wyo football in the Fall.

Every day there’s more and more people that seem to be saying the doomsday scenario was a bit much. It felt like the tide is turning some on the dire predictions. Hopefully everyone was wrong and it isn’t so bad.

The US now has over 100,000 confirmed cases of Coronavirus. Hospitals in heavily affected areas are basically at the breaking point due to lack of supplies in the forms of face masks, ventilators, gowns, and face shields. And the rate of infection is startingly high amongst many age groups. Wyoming itself went from below 20, to over 70 in the span of a week. The only saving grace we have is how spread out the state is, but even that is only a temporary thing.
