Pac-12 has canceled fall football season, source told @Stadium
. “We’re done,” source said. Official announcement at 4:30 p.m. ET
Breaking: The Pac-12 CEO group voted Tuesday to cancel fall sports, including football, and will look at options to play in the spring, first reported by Stadium and confirmed to ESPN.
If #medical experts for the Pac-12 and Big 10 #CollegeFootball conferences are using the very good @JAMACardio
paper on cardiac MRI findings in #COVID19 patients as compelling for cancellation, that is a big FOUL. The data does NOT support this at all! #WeWantToPlay #RefuseToFear
When the Big Ten (and later Pac-12) try to tell you they care about player safety, remember:
1. They are also allowing thousands of students to return to campus in coming weeks
2. They're now asking kids to play 20+ games in 2021
Never heard a bigger load of crap in my life
Power 5 AD on Big Ten & Pac-12 canceling fall football:
“You’ve got one pro guy with no background in the industry in Kevin Warren and a guy in Larry Scott who acts like he’s smarter than everyone else. We’re supposed to be about the players. This isn’t about the players.”
What would the Playoff even look like without the Big Ten and Pac-12?
If the conclusion of the Pac 12 and Big Ten medical experts is to shut down and the conclusion of the SEC and Big 12 medical experts is to keep going people better be willing to talk about it in detail and on the record
Big Ten becomes 1st Power 5 league to cancel fall football season, sources told @Stadium
. 1st reported by Yahoo. Now 41 of 130 FBS programs will not play in fall, pending decision by Pac-12 today
Sources: The Pac-12 has canceled ALL nonconference games in MEN’S BASKETBALL until at least January.
Pac-12 will try and play football in spring “if (COVID) conditions improve, we will try,” source told @Stadium
Lou Holtz UNLOADING on College AD’s at Big Ten and Pac-12 well done Coach!
Are the SEC and ACC hoping to find different scientists and doctors than the Big 10 and Pac 12?
After embarrassing outbursts by Scott Frost, other Big Ten coaches & Jim Jordan, DeSantis, Rubio & Sasse, Big Ten makes the difficult but smart decision to side with science and knowledge and postpone football and other fall sports. My @usatoday column: https://t.co/0paaZJDiWG
on his sons playing at Clemson: “I do not go to bed at night and worry that they may get this virus and they could die. I know it’s possible, but I don’t worry about it." Also notes "there are outliers who get real sick” as reason Big Ten, Pac-12 shut down.
BREAKING: The College Football Playoff will look exactly the same now that the big ten and pac-12 have opted out
Kentucky was ranked 29th in the initial preseason coaches poll.
However, 10 of the teams ahead of them were either in the Big Ten or Pac-12.
In other words, Kentucky is now in the top 20. https://t.co/8YrDLmJDYk
We just care about player safety so we are going to have them play 10 games in the spring then 12 games 3 months later
- The Big 10 and Pac 12
Watershed day in CF. I don’t expect it to ever be the same. Next spring, does the Big 10 champ play the Pac-12 champ in the Rose Bowl? And do they really expect the guys that remain on campus to play 2 seasons in 1 calendar year? #Crazy @680TheFan
The pandemic is too dangerous for Big Ten and Pac-12 football, but it’s OK for the ACC – and for high school kids in Indianapolis? What the hell is going on here?
It would be a good time for those schools plus the ACC the SEC & the Big 12 to dump out of the NCAA and start a new association of college teams. Call it the American Collegiate Athletic Association. See ya' Big10 & Pac 12. Wouldn't want to be ya.' https://t.co/VOrob8bYpL
So in the span of 3 hours today:
- Big Ten cancels season
- Pac-12 cancels season
- Army adds Georgia Southern for 2020
- Report that Big 12 May release their revised schedule tonight https://t.co/LwQQlM1Nd7
Couldn't have been an easy decision.
COVID - 2
College Football - 0
COVID may go undefeated this year. Thinking about all of the student-athletes, coaches & staff. Stay safe. 😷 https://t.co/ZVBMrHR7zp
Spokesperson for Oregon Gov. Kate Brown tells me, "In discussing the health and safety of college athletics, our primary conversations have been with representatives of Oregon's universities.
"We did not give input to the Pac-12 about their recent decision."
COLLEGE FOOTBALL CANCELLATIONS: @KayleeHartung
is in Baton Rouge with what’s next after a historic decision from the powerhouse Big Ten and Pac-12 conferences, cancelling all college sports this fall – including football and soccer – over COVID concerns. https://t.co/sdmyyTMiHx
JUST IN: Southeastern Conference statement on fall season cancellations from the Pac-12 and Big Ten today. https://t.co/LHg5Qv0SJ2
The #WeAreUnited movement players released a statement: "It is obvious that the Pac-12 was woefully
unprepared to protect college athlete safety in response to COVID-19 and could not address the basic and
essential safety demands made by #WeAreUnited."
I don't know for sure if the Big Ten and Pac-12 did the right thing.
And I'm just as confident you don't either.
