Mid-American Conference postpones fall sports season

And just like that, the first domino has fallen.

On Saturday morning, the Mid-American Conference announced the postponement of the 2020 fall sports season. The fall sports being affected are men’s and women’s cross-country, field hockey, football, men’s soccer, women’s soccer and women’s volleyball.

This decision is big around these parts as Central Michigan, Eastern Michigan, and Western Michigan are all part of the MAC.

The MAC become the first FBS school to cancel college football for the fall.

It has been a rough week for the family, friends, and anyone who listened to Jamie Samuelsen talk about Detroit Sports for the past 25 years as he passed away on Saturday following a long battle with colon cancer.

Since his death, Samuelsen’s co-workers, including his close friend Bob Wojnowski of 97.1 the ticket, have joined thousands of listeners as they have all remembered Jamie for being a great father and husband, and a great person overall.
