    Coronavirus and Sports Only - PLEASE and THANK YOU

    SI.COM - Indiana reported its first positive COVID-19 test results on Friday afternoon, saying that in its second wave of testing on athletes, coaches and staff that there were four positive results. There have been 299 tests done thus far, so the four positive results account for a rate of just 1.3 percent. Testing began on June 8 when a portion of the football team returned. Basketball players — both men and women — returned a week later, and the university reported on June 23 that no one had tested positive during the first 187 test. The second wave of test from June 24 to July accounted for the four positive results out of 112 tests. The school does not announce who tested positive, and they also will not say if it was an athlete, coach or staff member who tested positive. Indiana's athletics department established the IU Athletics Medical Advisory Group on March 10 to provide expert medical advice. Per its recommendations, each positive test results in isolation until further notice and contact tracing measures are established to detect additional individuals who are considered close contacts and may have been exposed to the virus. These close contact individuals are also quarantined until further notice.

    Expendable IU sports

    Can anyone locate a breakdown of the overall athletic dept. budget by individual sports program? I have no idea what we spend on field hockey vs. water polo vs. golf vs any other sport. With no frame of reference, I would expect baseball and softball to be big expense items based on numbers of participants, uniforms/equipment and lots of road trips with multiple overnight stays. Not advocating that by any means but do you look to cut as few programs as possible to save the others or eliminate much lesser profile programs but in greater numbers? I certainly hope we don't have to reach that point. What would be the impact if McRobbie didn't suck B1G money for other purposes? Bet Glass is counting his blessings every morning that he's no longer AD.

    Sounding like the Pac 12 is going to follow the B1G and shortly announce conference only games and the other major conference dominoes will quickly fall. This is going to financially kill the low and mid-majors and will only lead to further reductions in college sports programs.

    Saw this tweet in reaction to the B1G announcement earlier today about conference only football games: And if this new B1G rule extends to all fall sports, that just wiped out about half of #iumsoc's schedule.

    Here is the official B1G statement -- We are facing uncertain and unprecedented times, and the health, safety and wellness of our student-athletes, coaches, game officials, and others associated with our sports programs and campuses remain our number one priority. To that end, the Big Ten Conference announced today that if the Conference is able to participate in fall sports (men’s and women’s cross country, field hockey, football, men’s and women’s soccer, and women’s volleyball) based on medical advice, it will move to Conference-only schedules in those sports. Details for these sports will be released at a later date, while decisions on sports not listed above will continue to be evaluated. By limiting competition to other Big Ten institutions, the Conference will have the greatest flexibility to adjust its own operations throughout the season and make quick decisions in real-time based on the most current evolving medical advice and the fluid nature of the pandemic. This decision was made following many thoughtful conversations over several months between the Big Ten Council of Presidents and Chancellors, Directors of Athletics, Conference Office staff, and medical experts including the Big Ten Task Force for Emerging Infectious Diseases and the Big Ten Sports Medicine Committee. In addition, the Conference announced that summer athletic activities will continue to be voluntary in all sports currently permitted to engage in such activities. Furthermore, Big Ten student-athletes who choose not to participate in intercollegiate athletics at any time during the summer and/or the 2020-21 academic year due to concerns about COVID-19 will continue to have their scholarship honored by their institution and will remain in good standing with their team. While Big Ten member institutions continue to rely on the most up-to-date medical information to establish the best protocols for voluntary workouts on their campuses, in compliance with local and state regulations, the Conference is working with the Big Ten Task Force for Emerging Infectious Diseases and the Big Ten Sports Medicine Committee to finalize Conference-wide protocols. As we continue to focus on how to play this season in a safe and responsible way, based on the best advice of medical experts, we are also prepared not to play in order to ensure the health, safety and wellness of our student-athletes should the circumstances so dictate.

    Great comment but wrong conference. ACC has already implied such an event as ND apparently already has 6 ACC schools on its schedule.
