Proud of both these guys. Getting a chance to call both of them broadcast correspondents and work with them on the radio network has been a privilege. 💪⚔️
RT @BennettConlin: Mendenhall says adding recent transfers feels NFL-like, almost like free agency with leagues dropping out this fall. Adds that he’s liked Central Michigan Tony Poljan so far. They hope for an answer this week on Ronnie Walker Jr.’s waiver.
#UVa’s Bronco Mendenhall says that they have no update on RB Ronnie Walker’s waiver request to play right away. It has been submitted but they have not heard back. “Hopefully an answer this week, that’s the normal time frame,” he said.
#UVa’s Bronco Mendenhall has not been told anything about where the ACC stands. The coaches, though, is what he’s plugged into. “Turbulent” is the way he described things, adding that the numbers nationally right now do not reflect “progress” to him.
RT @BennettConlin: Mendenhall says football is secondary to the pandemic. He says until the COVID-19 numbers are controlled, there’s a lot of work that still needs to be done. No positive test results in latest round of testing, which will be released officially later today.
Asked about rumors of the season being canceled, #UVa’s Bronco Mendenhall says that he wants to control what they can control and his program has done a great job of that. "This to me isn't a football-only issue,” he added. He believes “healthy and safety first and foremost.”
RT @JonSolomonAspen: More from Power 5 official: "College athletics is the only multibillion-dollar business in the world with no leadership structure or decision-making apparatus, and it's been catastrophically exposed. I'm embarrassed to have been part of this exercise in failed leadership."
This is just such a perfect encapsulation: The NCAA can’t/won’t say—despite years of schools treating them as such— that its student-athletes are workers. Meanwhile, the place where the workers technically are is poised to gobble up the TV slots so as to make more money.
The NFL is watching what unfolds with college with interest. They remain highly intrigued by the Saturday television real estate with the potential absence of college.
