MEAC Suspends Fall Sports Season Due to COVID-19

NORFOLK, Va., July 16, 2020 – The Council of Presidents and Chancellors of the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference (MEAC) announces that the league will suspend all sports competition, championship and non-championship segments, for the 2020 fall season, as a result of the continuing COVID-19 pandemic.  A decision is yet to be made on whether fall sports schedules will be moved to the 2021 spring semester.

There goes USF's home opener with Bethune Cookman. It's starting to sound like the season opener at Texas is probably in jeopardy as well.

Why are they in such a rush to decide? 

If I am the athletic director of a college, and I'm trying to make travel plans for all of my athletes to get to games in various different states throughout the regular seasons....figuring out buses or flights, making hotel reservations, and figuring out when and where to feed them...I'm figuring that out well ahead of time. Like months.

Then if the conference turns around and cancels all of that with only days to go before the season starts, there's a good chance I'm going to be losing a lot of money, if not just based on deposits.

The teams aren't even in camps yet they are just conditioning. and its the conference that's canceling seasons or moving to spring at least get to camp lets get a semblance of football activity and then make a decision.

Looking like all of the smaller conferences that are primary in the northeast or the east coast are all doing the same thing and cancelling their fall sports.
