With the recent announcements that Bowdoin and Williams will be canceling all fall sports, the status of the fall football season remains in jeopardy for the Ancient Eight. Ivy League Presidents have been actively discussing the possibilities of an outright cancellation, a shortened Ivy-only fall season or a spring Ivy-only season. We are eagerly anticipating an official announcement from the Ivy League as to what the future may hold this fall.
The Patriot League has already placed restrictions on their out of conference contests, so don’t hold your breath for the Fordham at Hawaii matchup this season.
The Yale Bowl offers quite possibly the most social distancing friendly atmosphere in the entire country given the ample space and limited crowds for non-HYP contests. While the risk to the fans might be low, the true dangers would be for the coaches and Yale employees who interact with the diverse student body on a daily basis (assuming the players have adequate immune systems to fight the virus).
All we can do at this point is to hope and pray to see the Bulldogs in 2020.
