NCAA releases statement on conference and individual institution COVID-19 decisions

It is now becoming clear that this fall is going to be drastically different than what we would normally see during a normal college football season. That was already going to be the case of course with the COVID-19 pandemic gripping this country anyway, but with the spike in cases, hospitalizations, and deaths, conferences are starting to take more drastic measures.

The IVY League voted to cancel fall sports on Wednesday — and now — the Big Ten has announced that it will move to a conference only schedule this fall.

So where does the NCAA stand on all of this? The official governing body of college athletics released a statement in support of its members on Thursday.

So what are we to take from this? This statement basically means the NCAA is going to stay out of the decision-making process with all of this and leave it up to the individual schools and conferences. However, it also means that the NCAA isn’t going to come in and make a blanket statement to shut everything down, which is indeed some good news.

This should get interesting. The good news is that we’re still at the point where games are being planned. Let’s hope that remains to be the case.
