NCAA Division I Council approves Nov. 25 start date for 2020-21 season


Expect there will be a LOT of announcements from conferences, events, teams, etc. about scheduling news coming in rapid fire in the coming days/weeks.


Full release.

This seems like the most likely path to sorting out Michigan’s non-conference…

Play the MSG games at Mohegan Sun and then play maybe a couple of extras.

It’ll be interesting to see what happens with the Big Ten/ACC Challenge.

Did those matchups ever get assigned? I can’t remember

No, not yet.

Can’t imagine there are any buy games this year.

With teams only playing 4-7 non conference games, I suspect that you won’t need much more than a blown out MTE if that’s what happens.

I suspect most high majors will go that route and smaller schools will just have to play regional/local smaller games of some sort.

I’d love to see the B1G and ACC double up the challenge this year … set up 3 or 4 bubble locations; play 2 in-conference and 2 B1G/ACC non-conference matchups within each bubble site.

Great for TV. Great for tourney resumes and NET rankings.

So on brand for Duke


One thing to note is that in addition to classes going fully remote after Thanksgiving. Winter term won’t start until Jan 19 (no Spring Break.)
