FALL FOOTBALL SOME GOOD NEWS SOME NOT SO GOOD NEWS
The bad is that the Pac-12 Presidents voted unanimously to cancel all fall sports. Yup there will be no college football this fall. The conference stated through the Commissioner’s office that it would consider a return to competition for impacted sports in the spring. Tragic news for all student athletes involved and a major blow to college football fans. Fans aside the decision was about safety for the student athletes according to Pac-12 Commissioner Larry Scott.
“The health, safety and well-being of our student-athletes and all those connected to Pac-12 sports has been our number one priority since the start of this current crisis,” said Scott. “Our student-athletes, fans, staff and all those who love college sports would like to have seen the season played this calendar year as originally planned, and we know how disappointing this is.” As for the students eligibility Scott implored the NCAA to grant the players a year of eligibility.
“We know that this is a difficult day for our student-athletes, and our hearts go out to them and their families,” added Scott. “We have made clear that all of their scholarships will be guaranteed, and that as a Conference we are strongly encouraging the NCAA to grant them an additional year of eligibility.”
