As of an SI article uploaded not 10 minutes ago, the latest official statement this afternoon from them indicates that the ACC is still set to play.
" ...The ACC will continue to make decisions based on medical advice, inclusive of our Medical Advisory Group, local and state health guidelines, and do so in a way that appropriately coincides with our universities' academic missions.
The safety of our students, staff, and overall campus communities will always be our top priority, and we are pleased with the protocols being administered on our 15 campuses. We will continue to follow our process that has been in place for months and has served us well.
We understand the need to stay flexible and be prepared to adjust as medical information and the landscape evolves ..." - Statement from the Atlantic Coast Conference
High School ball is still on here in Georgia too ...
Kevin Warren is a turd ...I will always love my Buckeyes, but the fact of the matter is that we have a lot of people in this country (myself included) looking at us as the B1G Pussy Conference right now. What has happened is that the league has cut off it's nose to spite it's face here.
A potential delay and wait and see strategy could be understandable. A full on cancellation of the season was extreme and very short-sighted. Kevin Warren is in over his head. And I think we would not be doing our due diligence if we didn't at least explore the possibility leaving the conference for good in the wake of all of this.
I am still waiting for Warren to hold his kid out of any Mississippi State football team activities until he feels personally safe that this conference that he is supposed to be a steward of can play in it's own right. Otherwise, he won't be able to escape his own hypocrisy.
CJ Stroud!!! - Man, this class is stacked! Lets get Phillips and Martinez signed and then get ready to roll!
I was wondering if anybody else saw that ...Every 50/50 out of bounds call went Cincy's way even with clear video evidence to the contrary. Pretty poorly officiated game in my opinion. I'm glad we were able to weather the "8 on 5" storm and pull out the victory in a hostile environment.
I feel like this is the type of team a guy like Tom Izzo made his name with. Starting off slow with the integration of new players and then hitting on all cylinders and peaking come March when it is time to make a run.
There is talent on this squad. How it all fits together is yet to be seen, but I think (despite early season ups and downs) they will be ready to make some noise come tourney time. It will be fun to watch and see how they all grow together along the way.
This is Urban being confident that he did nothing wrong, probably has evidence to that effect, and knowing that he should not have been suspended in the first place ...
I hope Brett McMurphy has a lawyer lined up.
Why was this article written???
I would add Aaron Craft's name somewhere in that "The Rest" grouping ...He was an important catalyst for those Buckeye teams from 2010 to 2014. He was a lockdown defender for us at the point guard position. Probably one of the best we had on defense there during the Thad Matta era.
