Since several of us have been at the mercy of Mr. Jobs minions regarding the what we type originally may be changed in cyber as it is posted on Crossports, here is a recent article from the Washington Post. The article is titled
“Ask Help Desk: Stop auto-correct from ducking up”
I got an E-mail blast from the school about Winter Homecoming. The date is Feb 26. Men's basketball and hockey are listed on the slate of events for Homecoming. The E-mail talks about vaccine requirements and the new mask requirements. Not a word in this promo about only letting season ticket holders only. Either there is a reasonable expectation that the policy will be changed or one hand doesn't know what the other hand is doing. I do know that Homecoming was originally scheduled for last Saturday vs Bucknell and that had been changed a while ago, so maybe there is a reasonable expectation the current admission policy will be loosened before the end of the season
In alignment with College policy, proof of vaccination will be required for anyone of eligible age attending an event indoors. In addition, masks (surgical-style masks, KN95, KF94 or N95 masks) are required indoors for all students, faculty, staff and visitors regardless of vaccination status (with the exception of during eating or drinking). Visit our COVID-19 website for the most up to date information.
Schedule of Events
Our full schedule of events will continue to be updated here as our plans progress. Events listed are subject to change.
That's the proverbial asterisk usually in small print that circumstances might change.

I still say you don't advertise something you don't have a reasonable expectation of delivering.
You don't send out a list of events with an asterisk saying check out our COVID policy that says this event isn't really a homecoming event because basically no one who got this E-mail notice can go
the disclaimer that things are subject to change means that right now we believe this to be true, but some things are beyond our control. It does not mean right now you can't go to this thing we're inviting you to, but if there is a change, you can go
Watching two Jesuit schools on FS1 - Looks like a big crowd with raucous fans in Milwaukee for Marquette and Xavier. My son says the place is rock in’. I sent him our status for the Hart Center…. Just sad. We are a joke - bad coach, bad team, bad environment- I am planning on going to Providence next Saturday to watch Marquette. Kit, happy to take You so you can see what is possible ….
Providence Civic Center was rocking today for the PC-Butler game.
If I was having surgery, I wouldn't be happy to see my surgeon and nurses wearing these. Fortunately, it's been about 3 years since my last surgery and about a year and a half since having my last colonoscopy and in neither case were the doctors and nurses wearing these types of masks. But maybe that's just a Rhode island thing? Lower standards in Massachusetts with their lousy Mass General and other world renown hospitals?
This article may answer your question regarding required covid vaccines boosters at colleges and universities nationwide. Regarding admission to athletic events, a review of each colleges athletic home page will provide an updated banner regarding current policy.
I quickly reviewed several athletic sites in the Patriot League and several schools that have been on the schedule. Holy Cross is the only school that has updated its policy within the last four weeks regarding a booster. Many of the schools have outdated pages regarding policy for indoor athletic events that are over 3 months old.

HC already have had issues this season with both the Men’s and Women’s basketball teams. Seems reasonable to try to protect the teams and their schedules over the next four weeks.
The schedule is jammed packed with three games a week during this month. No room for additional games to be cancelled, or key players to be unavailable due to a positive test. At this point, the priority is to complete the schedule without health issues that require mitigation.
