This proposal originated from NABC Committee on Racial Reconciliation, formed last month to address issues related to racism and injustice in college athletics. Committee is co-chaired by Harvard’s Tommy Amaker and South Carolina’s Frank Martin.
NABC just proposed that SAT and ACT requirements be permanently eliminated from NCAA initial-eligibility standards, effective immediately.
Now, in a pandemic, college athletes are “heroes.” Not students like any other student, but heroes. Unpaid heroes. Can’t make this stuff up.
"We need heroes right now. We need heroes through sports. We're missing that. But I don't know when it's going to come, and we have to make sure to do it safely." --MAC Commissioner Jon Steinbrecher
RT @rodger: If a sportswriter says a sporting event shouldn't take place, it's not because they hate sports or are "rooting for the virus." It's because they're genuinely concerned in spite of the fact that the loss of sports could result in them losing their job https://t.co/4G8EqQSeww https://t.co/I0xOpq2GYe

RT @BruceFeldmanCFB: The SEC announced it will postpone the start of volleyball, soccer and cross country competition thru at least Aug 31. The decision will provide additional time to prepare for the safe return of competition on an adjusted timeline. This includes all exhibition & non-conf. games.
