"College athletics. Big money, but we're dealing with players, many of whom are still teenagers technically under someone else's care, and many have said that at the college level Coaches, athletic director's school presidents. They're the adults in the room. Wednesday, the Ivy League ruled out sports for the fall. They're the first D one conference to cancel sports for the upcoming semester due, of course to the Corona virus pandemic. Earlier on ESPN radio Robin Harris, the executive director of the Ivy League, so what the president wanted to do was decide what needed to be decided right now. And it's similar to the approach is most of them have taken regarding campus policies that the campus policies are subject to change based on how the virus changes in how our ability To treat or combat the by the virus changes. So as campus policies change, then we can modify what's happening in athletic. So if the situation gets better that will allow more athletic activities and hopefully competition to occur, and conversely, if it were to get worse. Then you know, we might have to go the other way many schools that are bringing students back for the fall semester, of course, doing so, with restrictions. On where students can go and who can come visit and that Was a factor in the decision for the Ivy League about sports where the campus policies impacted. Our decisions about athletics really has to do with the competition piece, because when you have restrictions on travel and restrictions on Who can visit your campus. It's hard, Tio manage. How are we gonna have athletics competition with a team from another location? How are we going to send our student athletes? To another location, even though we are fortunate that were geographically compact, and we're we travel by bus and most of our trip there day trips, it became complicated. We are athletic directors looked at a variety of options. To try and figure out. Are there ways Tio Really limit the travel, and it just became difficult. Robin Harris that our executive director of the Ivy League earlier on ESPN radio Harris, saying the decision was not easy. Justice Hard, in fact, is making the call a few months ago for spring sports. No decision's been made about winter or spring sports in the Ivy League, or whether fall sports could be played in the spring of 2021. So the Ivy League making its decision when, say, some folks feeling They're the first domino to fall and others will follow. Earlier on ESPN Radio SEC Commissioner Gregg thank you saying Not necessarily, but it doesn't create any pressure for me and and I watched. I read some news that links decisions back in March. So the reality is that dinner when the Ivy League announcement came out? I said, You know, we're playing basketball with fans that we did on Wednesday, but Wednesday information change so our decisions in March or not about another league. Waded across the autonomy. Five group collaborate, communicate, So we knew where people were headed. But we weren't stopping because someone else stopped on. We weren't stopping in March because the Ivy League stop and so today. The pressure on me has changed. I think the pressure on these of man no matter what happens on other conferences, and what we're going to do is listen to our medical personnel as we have We're gonna listen to our campus leadership and fully engaged them. I'm going to visit with my colleagues because we've worked more closely across the Tommy five. But I don't think that the announcement today is is any inflection point for decision Making Now when you look at what's happening from the trend line with With virus testing with hospitalizations with supplies and treatments. Those are the real inflection points for us and Greg sank, he's saying as they had to the fall. All of their dates at the moment, continue to be fluid. But how about moving those dates potentially to the spring? Well, it seems to me the questions that have to be asked and answered our Can We start football? Um, at the time schedule this Labour Day weekend, and that's a yes or no answer. Based on criteria. The answer is no. That you're then into you know, when can you start football and Go back to April. The potential for spring is on this long. That's the contingencies. What will you have to evaluate or the criteria would cause you to not be ableto participate in the baller or have football in the fall? And then well, those criteria be present when you want to play in the spring. And that's a difficult question to answer. So if you've got 45 reasons why you have to stop Are those 45 reasons still going to be there? Come February or March when you contemplate the start of spring football and what? I have not heard his clarity that Oh, no. You know, the circumstances will be very different. And I know that's the answer. That's the information that's really needed to inform that decision. Possibly could that ever happen. I would never be the one to say no, but you have to think about The evaluation points that lead you in that direction. And will you have substantially different information that informed that decision making, um six months from now? So the bottom line what we're hearing from SEC Commissioner Greg Frankie. If things aren't good in the fall, there's no saying things will be any better in time for the spring. So the key question What is Sang Ki feeling about SEC football happening this fall? I want to be optimistic, but the reality is publicly. We have to discipline ourselves. To remain healthy as a culture. And that relates to some of the behaviours we've seen that have caused the spread to accelerate. And I've been optimistic. But I'm prepared that that optimism is not reality. And what I'm concerned about is that reality has been changing and has caused me to not be as optimistic as I may have been 30 days ago, but throughout it all, we've been prayer, preparing and planning and thinking about Pivots we may have to make and those were the important decisions over the next 345 weeks that are going to be in front of us, given what's happening in the public health, SEC Commissioner Greg Sancti earlier on ESPN radio saying. Is optimism is not as high as it was a month ago when it comes to college football. And at Stanford.

And will you have substantially different information that informed that decision making, um six months from now? So the bottom line what we're hearing from SEC Commissioner Greg Frankie. If things aren't good in the fall, there's no saying things will be any better in time for the spring..

"J. Reynolds, ESPN radio ESPN have serious exam Channel 80 there, maybe students heading back to college campuses this summer, but None of them will be playing sports, at least in the Ivy League. Divey ruling out all sports for the fall that the first Division one conference to say it will not hold sports this upcoming semester. Robin Harris is the executive director of the Ivy League. You know, it definitely wasn't any easier to make a second time because we had been through it once before. But we also know again that it's the right decision for our schools, and our presidents have been meeting and talking frequently. And consistent theme throughout as they talked about how they were going, Tio approach academics and campus life generally for the fall is obviously that our student athletes should be treated like students. And that our campus policies For campuses, you know for the student body generally are going to apply Tio Athletics so as the Ivy League school started to announce the policies for campuses during the fall. It became clear as a result of the varying campus policies across our schools. That competition in athletics just wasn't going to be feasible. Among the campus policies would be a restriction on visitors to campus. They say. If you can't have visitors, how can you have teams coming in from other schools? There had been speculation of the Ivy League would move a sport like football to the spring. The Ivy League has not made any decisions about winter or spring sports or weather fall sports would be played or could be played. Next spring. Regardless, our Paul Finebaum says the Ivy League decision's going to get noticed. College presidents are paying attention to this in every ivory tower. In the country tonight. College presidents were going What do they know that we don't We understand that college football is seemingly too big to fail. But the Ivy League has put the pressure on everyone else. They clearly don't think it's safe. They don't think it's practical and they're not going to do it. And if you're the president of southern cow or Michigan or Alabama or anywhere else, you have to be asking yourself the very same question tonight. Why are we doing it? And they're not. I realized there's no correlation between the Ivy League And and the big 10 or there or anyone else, but but those people out there. Those eight presidents are among the most influential in academia, and this is still college students were talking about. This is the N B, A or the MLB or anything else. This is a I think this is a very significant story that a lot of people in college football wouldn't want to laugh at. But I don't think the people that matter in college football are laughing tonight. We just got news coming in that Ohio State is putting a pause on all voluntary work outs right now. Last week, you said that the chances for a college football season we're under 50% in your opinion after talking to so many people throughout the last couple of weeks. Where is that number right now that the season will start on time? At the end of August. Kevin I don't think you always hate to make absolute but I don't think there's any way the college football season is starting on time. I think it's impractical to think that right now. And I know what the commissioners are saying that they're watching the virus. But I mean, this thing is out of control, and everyone knows. Ah, and I think that makes it more difficult. I think they'll they'll move very cautiously. Through these next few weeks. They don't have to make a decision right now. And, quite frankly, at the end of July, they could say We're going to wait two more weeks and push it into September and truncate this season, But we're not going to see college football ATT the end of August. In my opinion, it's hard to hold anybody to any conclusion on July 8th, but just to get your opinion after talking to so many people, and you mentioned a season that is shortened, could we potentially see Have you talked about the spring season here on the college football level? And we're talking about the FBS. Nobody wants to do it. I think the idea of the Ivy League may consider it when when, when the dust settles, But there's nobody among 45 who wants to play it Now, if they have no choice. They will. Uh, this is about money. Don't forget in spite of what they try to convince you of Kevin, but if they have to play in the spring, they will, but but it's beyond the last resort. They don't want to do it. And they may not be able to depend on what the situation is in the nation in the coming months, including this summer because among the commissioners who are continuing to look at the landscape Through the summer and into the fall is SEC commissioner Greg Frankie. He's keeping an eye on the calendar, but admits Everything at this point written in pencil all all dates or are fungible if you will, so I look at this is a marathon. I've run 41 marathons in my lifetime, which will give you and inside some insight into what I think is interesting to do with my time. And what I learned is you never stood the finish line solely focused on there. She never started start solely focused on the finish. You had to break the race up into segments, and that's really what's happened here. So listen, when you ask about activities we got to Junaid that we started voluntary activities. I got into testing programs and the tracing programs isolation when you around people that may have tested positive, which supported the health of student athletes really, really well. And it's a point of pride. But that was a mile marker for us to get him back and then to get through the first few weeks the next mile markers on Monday when when we goto mandatory eight hours and much like voluntary, so not a huge change, but perhaps a little bit more in person meeting And the expectation that the young people are part of the conditioning program, which is done with medical supervision. Testing. Tracing all is going to be a part of that. Then you get to think it's July 24th. We elevate, so we're six weeks ahead of the season 20 hours of AH, activity. And some of that, Khun B. A lot of that strength conditioning, same sort of things where you're clearly spaced out, and then you go in tow walk throughs. No. No helmets, no pads, and so each of those or the mile markers and then you get like cross August 5th August 7th, which is the scheduled start of preseason practice. And so those air three really important points and I'd say before you get to about a week before the start of practice, and that's when the conversation's going to become very much focused on on time frame. But The ability to see the NFL start training camps. If you think about what's happening in in the month of July, you have major league baseball start playing and start traveling in BA is going to be in in their bubble, but they're going to be scrimmaging. You're gonna have sands in the NASCAR race. I think, uh, things continue. Probably next week. You're gonna have NFL training camp startup. And so we're gonna be able to learn even more and hopefully weaken can overcome some of the problematic trends we've seen in public health, and that allows us to get in the late July early August. Engaged in the next level of decision, but it's the need toe engage in and thoughtful analysis is taking place every day. We have medical advisory group that meets every week that's involved in oversight treatment care. And those air really important elements of information..

"His optimism waning a bit about College football this fall and an emotional return for MLS. On Wednesday from the expansive studio number one I'm J. Reynolds. Good to have you along SportsCenter all night. ESPN radio, ESPN app. Sirius X M Channel 80 Major League Baseball, of course, ramping up to get the season under way. In a couple of weeks. The NHL Heading to host cities, the MBA and during the bubble of Disney. MLS. Yes, has begun its tournament at Disney. Those of pro sports. Time for straight talk brought to you by straight talk Wireless when it comes to college athletics. Big money. What we're dealing with players, many of whom are still teenagers technically under someone else's care, and many have said that at the college level Coaches athletic director's school president. They're the adults in the room. Wednesday, the Ivy League ruled out sports for They're the first D one conference to cancel sports for the upcoming semester due, of course to the Corona virus pandemic. Earlier on ESPN radio Robin Harris, the executive director of the Ivy League, so what the president wanted to do was decide what needed to be decided right now. And it's similar to the approach is most of them have taken regarding campus policies that the campus policies are subject to change based on how the virus changes in how our ability To treat or combat the by the virus changes. So as campus policies change, then we can modify what's happening in athletic. So if the situation gets better that will allow more athletic activities and hopefully competition to occur, and conversely, if it were to get worse. Then you know, we might have to go the other way many schools that are bringing students back for the fall semester, of course, doing so, with restrictions. On where students can go and who can come visit and that Was a factor in the decision for the Ivy League about sports where the campus policies impacted. Our decisions about athletics really has to do with the competition piece, because when you have restrictions on travel and restrictions on Who can visit your campus. It's hard, Tio manage. How are we gonna have athletics competition with a team from another location? How are we going to send our student athletes? To another location, even though we are fortunate that were geographically compact, and we're we travel by bus and most of our trip there day trips, it became complicated. We are athletic directors looked at a variety of options. To try and figure out. Are there ways Tio Really limit the travel, and it just became difficult. Robin Harris that our executive director of the Ivy League earlier on ESPN radio Harris, saying the decision was not easy. Justice Hard, in fact, is making the call a few months ago for spring sports. No decision's been made about winter or spring sports in the Ivy League, or whether fall sports could be played in the spring of 2021. So the Ivy League making its decision Wednesday, some folks feeling They're the first domino to fall and others will follow. Earlier on ESPN Radio, SEC Commissioner Greg sank e saying. Not necessarily, but it doesn't create any pressure for Mei and and I watch. I read some news that links decisions back in March, so the reality is dinner when the Ivy League announcement came out I said, You know, we're playing basketball with fans that we did on Wednesday. But Wednesday information change so our decisions in March we're not about another league waded across the autonomy. Five group collaborate, communicate, so we knew where people were headed. But we weren't stopping because someone else stopped. Ah, and we weren't stopping in March because the Ivy League stopped And so today, the pressure on me has changed. I think the pressure on these events no matter What happens in other conferences, and what we're gonna do is listen to our medical personnel as we have. We're gonna listen to our campus leadership and fully engaged them. I'm going to visit with my colleagues because we've worked more closely across the atomic five. But I don't think that the announcement today is is any inflection point for decision making Now when you look at what's happening from the trend line with with virus testing with hospitalizations with supplies and treatments, those are the real inflection points for us and Greg sank. He's saying as they head to the fall. All of their dates at the moment, continue to be fluid. But how about moving those dates potentially to the spring? Well, it seems to me the questions that have to be asked and answered our Can We start football? Um, at the time schedule this Labour Day weekend, and that's a yes or no answer. Based on criteria. The answer is no. That you're then into you know, when can you start football and Go back to April. The potential for spring is on this long. That's the contingencies. What will you have to evaluate or the criteria would cause you to not be ableto participate in the fall ER or have football in the fall? And then well, those criteria be present when you want to play in the spring. And that's a difficult question to answer. So if you've got 45 reasons why you have to stop Are those 45 reasons still going to be there? Come February or March when you contemplate the start of spring football and what? I have not heard his clarity that Oh, no. You know, the circumstances will be very different. And I know that's the answer. That's the information that's really needed to inform that decision. Possibly could that ever happen. I would never be the one to say no, but you have to think about Evaluation points that leads you in that direction. And will you have substantially different information have informed that decision making, um, six months from now? So the bottom line what we're hearing from SEC Commissioner Greg Frankie. If things aren't good in the fall, there's no saying things will be any better in time for the spring. So the key question What is Sang Ki feeling about SEC football happening this fall? I want to be optimistic, but the reality is publicly. We have to discipline ourselves to remain healthy as a culture. And that relates to some of the behaviours we've seen that have caused the spread to accelerate. And I've been optimistic. But I'm prepared that that optimism is not reality. And what I'm concerned about is that reality has been changing and has caused me to not be as optimistic as I may have been 30 days ago, but throughout it all we've been preparing and planning and I'm thinking about what pivots we may have to make and those were the important decisions over the next know 345 weeks that are going to be in front of us, given what's happening in the public health, SEC Commissioner Greg's Anke earlier on ESPN radio saying. Is optimism is not as high as it was a month ago when it comes to college football. And at Stanford. School has made the decision to cut 11 varsity sports after the upcoming school year, including field hockey, men's volleyball and wrestling the school, eliminating 11 of its 36 varsity programs. It'll affect more than 240 student athletes and 22 Coaches straight talk wireless, no contract. No compromise SportsCenter all night, ESPN radio..

"Vacation with a slope later on this week. Lot to digest, man. We were about to call it a night last night getting ready. Look going over the show. We'll talk this. Talk this and then wait a minute Being Cam Newton damn signs with the Patriots. And that has been ah, sporting gift that we will gladly take and run with for the next few days. Yeah, it really, really is. It's Ah, and again. He was one of the teams we had talked about when Cam Had been available out there and he hadn't signed head inside and don't know what's going to happen is we're gonna have to wait until an injury once training camp starts because nobody can work him out. It's one thing to get a physical. We've seen players get physicals, but it's another thing. Where you going to be able to work him out in any kind of situation, and the answer was going to be no right. So we thought he was gonna have to wait until camp started, and maybe another quarterback got hurt. But then there's Bill Belichick. Doing? Bill Belichick things where everybody else just goes. Okay. Why did you do that? Why did you do that before? Why did you do it now? Well, he's done it now. So Cam Newton and while we had Mike Reese on our our Patriots reporter said, it's going to be considered an open competition. And you know that's what you'll get from Bill's Sure, you know, Best player wins and all that, but I can do is going to be starting a new angle Patriots. He doesn't have to pick up a new offense and a very limited officer very limited time. The first time we'll be together physically will be that July 28th when they report to camp. So from that part of it, I could see that being You know a bit of a process shortened preseason as well. But you know, it'll be a lot of time on the practice field and in the film room and how they do their business there, and I can understand what this is all about, as well. What I need term. It's a one year deal. So prove you can stay healthy proving and still play well and see what happens from there and again. We'll have Matt Cassel, former Patriots quarterback on in just about 1/2 an hour to talk about that what he is, he thinks his expectations are for Cam Newton in New England. But we're also continuing to see Mike how rapidly things can change in this country and how Muchmore players specifically, college players are understanding the power they have and the platform available to them. What happened last week, Cailan Hill, the running back from Mississippi State, basically said, I can't represent this state anymore if we have a state flag. That has the Confederate symbol on it On loan. Behold, the eight major universities, all in the state of Mississippi. All went together last week, I believe was on Thursday to petition the state legislator that we've got to remove that symbol that symbol and that Confederate flag from the state flag of Mississippi and Lo and behold, Guess what happened over the weekend that legislation passed and that emblem will be removed the Confederate flag emblem. Will be removed from Mississippi State flag. So for more on this, and how quickly all of this has changed. We're delighted to be joined by Kermit Davis, the old Ms Men's basketball coach, Kermit Thanks for being with us this morning. First of all, were you surprised at how quickly this thing which has been a part of the state flag for a long time, There's been discussion about it. How quickly this move to resolution. Trails that was a welcoming sight. You know, the native Mississippian born and raised in the state and to see you know Young People Athletic administration's legislation. The House and Senate acted real quickly. So it was. It was a great day for our state that because everyone knew we knew that we need a flag to represent all of our citizens need a flag. To represent our students and stayed out of state applied the representative student athletes and itwas you know, we've We've all done some different things and college coaching that that we've enjoyed. I don't know about ever had a more gratifying day to be a small part of change in our state. And along those lines, as you said, you were born and raised there and neither at Mississippi State or old, Miss. That flag hasn't flown there since. I think 2015 or 2016. Why did this happen now? And why didn't this happen sooner? Yes, a great question. Like I think you just saw that. You know, our legislation was a big part that is the power of athletics. In our commissioner, Greg's Frankie came out and took a position. The other is going to be no SNC regionals. No SEC championships in our state flag was flying and then market within a light came out and said the same thing at regionals and then Colin hell came out and then I think 46 you know, coaches and administrators gives all the schools. It was almost state, Southern, Miss Jackson State, Mississippi Valley, all corn, state and others that I do. I just think it's the power of our voice and and what's going on in our country right now, But it was sure welcoming change for all of us. Kermit Davis wasn't the old MS basketball coach on the 2019 SEC coach of the year, we should point out part of the many people that lobbied and lobbied successfully for the state of Mississippi to change that flag. I'm just curious Coach. What did it mean? When you found out it was a former old Miss guard Blake Henson, who said the Confederate symbol on the state flag was one of the reasons he decided to transfer away from all this and go to Iowa State. You know, and after just great for us, and now we can just move followed, you know, and that the flied issue is behind this. You know Blake was with us for two years and we want every basketball player that comes told Miss and Oxford have a great experience on the basketball wives academically socially. That's our main concern and You know, Blake and I never had a discussion and probably a month that we're talking about. The possibility of transferring never had a discussion about the planet. I would have welcomed that. It was your strictly basketball. But we which Blake the best and, Ah, don't say it really was glad change of moving forward. Coach. We know nothing is 100% on one side all the time. And there are going to be people that are angry that this has happened as well. Have you heard from any of those and what are people saying? I'm sure there are my you know, I have nothing but positive response from tomorrow. Mitch Community Young getting has been great and throughout the state of just pals that whether someone this glad Mr ST Gran's just proud Mississippi that we're moving forward with the change, But it's like any decision like that. I'm sure there's there's different sides to it. But For me personally way needed change, and that was the main thing and we're moving forward. I think what you saw me whether the Senate yesterday, almost understanding ovation out excited that they work. Everybody knows trying to growing And let's just forget about athletics is trying to grow from a business stay employed and educational standpoint of growth. We had to have a flag that that unites people or not a flag. You said it. We haven't flown the flagpole miss since 2016 so I have a state flag not proud to fly. That's a great point. And again that the speed with which this happened was really amazing is Kermit Davis is with us and coach. It's sort of leads to the next question, which is the changing landscape of college sports, not only because of the pandemic, which will get into in a minute, but players are understanding the power they have. You know, we've seen this whether it was the running back at Oklahoma State with Cuba. Hubbard when he was upset with something that might Gundy, his football coach Wars, a shirt and this the The things that that network represented to him that it sparked real conversations. We saw linebacker Florida State have to have a sit down our former sit down with his new head football coach at Florida State because there was a misconception about how message that was put out there that he had spoken to all the players as a as a as a coach in a Power five conference. How important is it now for you to recognize that these college players are understanding that their platform is powerful and can lead to positive change? Yeah, I think it's one of the greatest things that I've seen. They just be my 38 year in college basketball is just the voice of young people and how I've been so proud of our student athletes at Ole Miss in all sports. We had unity march have spoken up. They've led rallies. They got very peaceful protest, but the strong powerful rallies. I think it's such a welcoming pain to see the young people around our country, both black and white, unite together in March and use their voice in the platform. And I think is we all get older guys. I mean, we hear all the time from coaches say it over and over and I'm one of them had become such a better listeners, players more knowledgeable about the process and what I am, and I'm proud of all the young student athletes use it because we welcome that. Kermit Davis joining us all Miss Head basketball coach. You mentioned 38 years. His first coaching gig, 1983 and assistant at Mississippi State born raised and leaks. Will Mississippi joining us here on Golic's window, and there's that side of it, and then Oh, by the way, there's a pandemic going on that the college college is everybody and then in our world of sports has to deal with So talk to us about We know football players have started to come back in..
