We’re still knee-deep amidst the COVID-19 pandemic that’s affected nearly ever aspect of life as we know it. Certainly, sports are no different.
While the NHL, NBA, and NFL have all begun tentative preparations to finish and start their seasons (MLB 2020 season is now underway), there remains discussion regarding the playing of fall NCAA sports.
Here in the Mitten State, both the University of Michigan and Michigan State University have announced that if there is indeed college football in the fall, stadium capacity will be either greatly reduced or simply played without fans. A final decision in consultation with medical experts and government officials is still pending.
However, one member of the Spartans doesn’t sound like he’s chomping at the bit to get back out onto the football field.
Michigan State offensive tackle Jordan Reid may wear green, but it sure looks like he’s referring to a different kind of green as he wondered aloud on his social media account as to why the season hasn’t been cancelled despite COVID-19 cases shooting up across the country:
Reid enters 2020 with the longest active starting streak on the team at 26 games, and is also the recipient of the MSU Up Front Award as an outstanding offensive lineman.
College football fans, are you with Reid on this one?
Ex-Buckeyes coach Urban Meyer says he respects Michigan
It’s no secret that the rivalry between the Michigan Wolverines and the Ohio State Buckeyes is one of the most legendary and fierce not only in the collegiate world, but in sports as a whole.
But beneath even the most bitter rivalries can lay a healthy respect.
Former Buckeyes head coach Urban Meyer, who went undefeated against the Wolverines during all seven matchups against the maize and blue during his tenure in Columbus, appeared on Big Noon Kickoff and described what he feels whenever he sees the block M – and it’s probably not what anyone expected to hear.
