Today, there was a major announcement saying the SIAC conference may suspend football, but that decision has not yet been made, according to a statement from the AD.
On March 12, 2020, the Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (SIAC) announced the decision to cancel the remainder of the Spring 2020 sports season. The SIAC and Council of Presidents continue to monitor national, regional, and municipal health and safety guidance in an ongoing process assessing the feasibility of intercollegiate athletic contest, particularly during COVID-19. However, contrary to published reports, no formal or final decisions have been made with respect to status of Fall 2020 sports. As a responsible intercollegiate sport sponsoring institution, the SIAC will continue to evaluate the feasibility of close-contact athletic competition amid the national pandemic.
This would be crazy news right here. There are some great players in the SIAC who could be greatly affected by this decision.
The following colleges could lose their season: Savannah State, Albany State, Fort Valley State, Morehouse, Benedict, Clark Atlanta, Miles, Tuskegee, Kentucky State, Lane, and Central State.
