Noticeably, Division I is absent from the decision. It is unfortunate for student athletes to miss out on these opportunities, but it is a much easier decision for the leagues to make when less money is at stake. Division I sports, namely football and basketball, make up the majority of revenue in an athletic department's budget. The amount of money tied to broadcast rights makes cancelations at that level much harder because so much more is on the line. It would not be surprising to see any decisions on that front pushed back as long as possible.

The next big question is what will Division I do. There is much, much more money at stake if conferences and the National Championship committee close down championships for this fall.

Hopefully the decision by UConn is not going to be a trend (or necessity) for this coming fall.

The checks have been dropped off in the mail. A big thank you to everyone who participated in the Pioneer Day fundraising drive, and gave to their favorite team.

The disruption in college sports continues, this time with a group of student athletes from the Pac-12 demanding changes in order for them to play this season. Change has to, and will happen, but I hope that it does not come at the expense of the sports I love. Also, I hope they will make it all fit into the college athletic model where the revenue sports allow for other sports to financially exist.

Happy Pioneer Day and thank you so much to those that participated in the fundraising drive! BYU came in tops with 5 fans raising $78. We raised a small amount for each Utah program and I will be working on getting the money sent out to each school in the coming week. Here's to the rest of the summer. Stay safe, have fun, and good luck to all of our favorite teams out there as they prepare for the fall.

This is very good news. It's crazy that student athletes could not qualify for merit scholarships before, without impacting team limits for athletic scholarships offered. The NCAA tries to focus on treating student athletes like any other student, but the old policy restricted players from earned merit scholarship money without hurting their team. This policy change is good news for smaller sports with only partial scholarships available for their athletes.

Non-revenue sports, which encompass most of the college sport teams out there, are in a serious bind. They are having to look for new ways to fund their programs, especially as the money crunch is hitting the big revenue sports, football and basketball. The economic disruption is real, and Pivvt exists to provide a new means of revenue for these teams and athletic programs.

The primary focus of this article is basketball, but even at this point in July, it's hard to say that we will even see football in the fall. The Big Ten and Pac-12 have reduced their schedules to conference only, but that does not guarantee that the country will even be ready to have sporting events happen "on time." There is still so much uncertainty, and that same uncertainty is guaranteed to hurt all athletic departments this year.

Wow. This is really sad to see, and will be a huge disappointment for a bunch of student athletes. I have memories of watching a very talented Men's Volleyball team over the years. If Stanford is struggling financially to keep athletics viable, imagine the turmoil smaller universities around the country must be going through right now.
