Welp, the scenario discussed in the pod of who wins the B1G where Michigan is 12-1 and Iowa is 16-4 just became a lot more realistic.
@ Penn State
vs. Michigan State
4 extremely winnable games will be delayed/cancelled. Ugh.
I don’t mean this in any condescending way whatsoever so I apologize if it sounds that way, but what is a “presumed” positive test?
Known exposure to a positive and symptoms, I believe.
Yeah just doesn’t really make a ton of sense for a blanket AD shutdown…
Also sounds like it was a student athlete who went overseas in presumably a personal trip caused this…
They could conceivably make up these games but if they did I would prefer they not play in the Big Ten tournament. Asking them to play a max of 13 games in a month before the NCAA Tournament isn’t the best idea.
I’m sort of in shock. This feels like that Utah-OKC game that kicked off the whole thing last year
If that’s the case, I’m glad we played yesterday if we were going to get shut down anyway.
Making up five games would be incredibly difficult. Four is borderline already.
am I right to assume that that State public health actually pretty much does have complete power over UM athletics as UM requires an exception that allows it to conduct indoor contact sports, which are otherwise banned for now?
I said this earlier. This is total bullshit
Didn’t high school football just play their championship games at Ford Field today?
It’s great that Michigan’s 1 seed season is getting derailed because of blatant negligence in either the women’s water polo or field hockey program… Awesome.
This is really the heart of the matter. And it just sux.
How was a U-M athlete allowed to go to a foreign country and then return to the state completely unchecked?!
Can we not find a work around for the basketball team?
Man I hate this state
This is such a gut punch, I know so many programs have had to deal with this. Nova just came back after about a month, and teams in the big ten have had their issues to but this season has been one of the few bright spots as a Michigan sports fan and this feels the same as watching our kids get pulled off the court in Indy during warm ups last year😡
