    NCAA Football has lost another conference that has cancelled the 2020 season due to pandemic concens. The MAC (Mid-America Conference) is the latest to fall.

    The Cardinals haven't played a game since July 29.

    The COVID19 nightmare for the Cardinals continues, as their 3-game set with the Pirates (8/10-12) has been postponed to allow the team to conduct further Coronavirus testing of their employees.

    Their next scheduled games after these would be a twin-bill with Detroit on 8/13. Assuming that St. Louis is given clearance to resume playing games in time for Thursday's twin-bill, in order to complete the entire 60-game, the team would have to play their remaining 55 games in 49 days.

    The never ending story continues for the poor baseball Cardinals. The doubleheader against Detroit mentioned in my previous update has now been postponed as well, and again due to the team pursing addition COVID19 testing on their employees.

    For the third straight week, the NHL has announced that there have been no members of the league who have tested positive for COVID 19. This pleasant string of success is the same as during the week prior, and which actually began before the resumption of games, during the time frame in which players and other traveling personnel headed for the hub cities were all postseason games are being played.

    Another NCAA sports conference has pulled the plug on their 2020 football season, this time being the Mountain West Conference.

    Something worse could become reality in as little as a few days. While no official decision has made yet, the possibility of the Big 10 joining the list of conferences to shut down football in 2020 has become stronger over the last few days. While it isn't the first college FB entity to declare 2020 football to be DOA, they would be the first household name conference to do so.

    The hammer has fallen again. The Big Ten deciding to cancel their 2020 football season is no longer rumor, but is now fact. The only possible saving grace is the Big Ten, like a few of the FB conferences that have already written of a fall college football season, hasn't ruled out playing the "2020" season in spring of 2021.

    A second Power 5 NCAA football conference has followed the lead of the Big Ten and put the kibosh on their 2020 season. Joining the Big 10 in that group now is the Pac-12.

    COVID-19 concerns have now postponed the Cardinals game on Friday in Chicago against the White Sox. However, there may now be some light at the end of the tunnel. Word comes that if the Redbirds can avoid any new positive tests related to team personnel, then they may be cleared to resume games, which would start with a twin-bill at Comiskey Park against the Chisox on Saturday.

    Unhappy Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame postponement.

    It was announced this weekend that the HOF induction ceremonies scheduled for later this year have been postponed, with the induction ceremonies being moved to May 2021.

    The class of 2020-21 includes three of the greatest NBA superstars of their era: the late Kobe Bryant, Tim Duncan and Kevin Garnett.

    Canceled sports seasons have not ventured north of our border due to COVID19. The Canadian Football League has announced a shutdown of the upcoming campaign.
