College Football in the Spring: When? How Much? Who Plays?
08/12/2020 4:43pm

Back in April, not long after the NCAA basketball tournament was canceled because of the coronavirus pandemic, the idea of moving the 2020 college football to the spring of 2021 already was being tossed around.A last resort is what it was called by conference commissioners and athletic directors.When it looked as if the U.S. might be winning its fight against COVID-19, the idea of a spring season mostly fell by the wayside.We broached it very little in our AD meetings and really havent gotten serious about it at all, Wisconsin athletic director Barry Alvarez said Tuesday. I had one AD from another league call and just talk about it a little bit.Time to start talking about it a lot.The Big Ten and Pac-12 postponed fall football on Tuesday, hoping to salvage a spring season like the Mid-American Conference and Mountain West plan to do.What that looks like is anybodys guess, but officials in those conferences need to figure out everything from how to prepare in the fall to how much to play in the spring, where in the calendar it could fit and who exactly is going to be suiting up for these teamsWisconsin coach Paul Chryst said before a spring football season is planned, there has to be a discussion about fall 2021.I think the two have to be tied together. In my mind, weve made the decision and weve canceled the 2020 season, Chryst said. Now how do we want to do 2021Todd Berry is the executive director of the American Football Coaches Association and a member of the NCAAs football oversight committee. He said conversations about a spring football season have been minimal, but there has been a theme.We would all like to go into next fall with some kind of normalcy, he said. Protecting next fall becomes pretty significant.So its safe to assume any spring season is going to be substantially shorter than the usual 12 regular-season games.Chryst played in what was known at the time as the World League of American Football and later become NFL Europe. Occasionally players from that spring league would end up on NFL rosters the following fall.Its a long season, Chryst said.Former NCAA executive and college football player Mark Lewis said playing two full seasons or even close to that should be a nonstarter.If you look back to the last 20 years of college football, theres been a de-emphasis of spring activity, spring practice, the number of days you can practice, the number of days you can practice with pads, the number of contact practices you can have. All those have been reduced with purpose, Lewis said.What are you gaining by playing in spring if youre trying to add more games I dont think thats necessarily a good idea.Before football can be played in the spring there has to be a plan for a fall without games.Berry said teams are not likely to send players home.Schools have generally done a good job mitigating the viruss spread during voluntary workouts and noncontact practices over the last month. Whether that keeps up when schools starts remains to be seen, even with some schools doing most or all of their classes online.Still, the schools have a blueprint. Berry said its possible to have a modified spring football format in the fall.Exactly when a season could be played in the spring is likely to be determined by the virus on the front end and the NCAA mens basketball tournament on the back. Would anybody in college sports want football treading on basketballs main eventKeeping the players in shape might be easier than simply keeping them around.More than two dozen FBS players, including some big stars from the Big Ten such as Penn State linebacker Micah Parsons and receivers Rondale Moore of Purdue and Rashod Bateman of Minnesota, opted out of the 2020 season even before the conference postponed.Will other highly regarded future NFL players such as Ohio State quarterback Justin Fields, Oregon offensive lineman Penei Sewell and Penn State tight end Pat Freiermuth bother participating in a spring seasonThe NFL scouting combine is in late February and the draft is in late April. If the NFL does nothing to accommodate spring college football, some of the sure-thing players are almost certain to leave. The players who needed another year to improve their stock might be more inclined to stay and play. But an injury in the spring could be an even bigger problem when it comes time to earn a spot on an NFL roster in the summer.Maybe players will still try to play in the fall but in another conference. The Southeastern Conference, Atlantic Coast Conference, Big 12, American Athletic Conference, Conference USA and Sun Belt are all still on track to start their seasons in September.With a few weeks to go before classes start at most schools, there is still time for a player to transfer, apply for a waiver from the NCAA and be eligible by opening day.I know when the MAC made their decision, the phones were ringing in a lot of places, many of them quite honestly from other MAC coaches saying weve got a kid here, he wants to go, do you have a spot Chryst said. To think thats not happening would probably be naive.FBS teams are allowed to sign 25 players per year, recruits or transfers, and at this point in the year most teams will be full or really close to it.Teams that lose players before a spring season could replace them with next years signing class. Early enrollment is common for many football players who want to get on campus in time for spring practice. Now, maybe they can get game experience.There is so much to sort out, including the NCAA signing off on a spring football season.Well start diving into that more, Big Ten Commissioner Kevin Warren said. At this point in time, well see.

No Roars at Augusta as Masters to Be Played Without Fans
08/12/2020 3:26pm

The Masters, the major known as much for the roars of the crowd as the raw beauty of Augusta National, will be on mute this year. The club decided Wednesday there will be no spectators.That means all three majors in this year of COVID-19 will not have fans, and the silence figures to be most deafening at Augusta National when the Masters is played Nov. 12-15.From Amen Corner all the way through the back nine, players can often figure out whats happening with others just by listening. That will be missing this year, along with the azalea and dogwood blooms from having to move it from April.Golf is coming off its first major without fans last week at the PGA Championship. The U.S. Open, moved from June to Sept. 17-20 because of the pandemic, previously announced it wont have spectators at Winged Foot.The British Open announced in April it would be canceled this year.

Chargers Coach Anthony Lynn Reveals He Had Coronavirus on ‘Hard Knocks'
08/12/2020 7:21am

It didnt take long for Hard Knocks: Los Angeles to reveal its first major surprise of the season as Los Angeles Chargers coach Anthony Lynn said he had coronavirus during the offseason.Lynns admission came less than five minutes into Tuesdays season premiere of the show on HBO and produced by NFL Films. He was answering questions about protocols put in place during a videoconference call with his players.I cant promise you youre not going to get infected. I got infected, said Lynn, who has recovered from the virus.Lynns experience set the tone for the hour-long show in which the theme was how the Chargers and Rams were taking steps to protect players. The episode also showed the testing procedure for players, which include nasal swab and blood antibody tests.Players, coaches and some team staff members are tested daily for at least the first two weeks of training camps. It can be reduced to every other day after that depending on the rate of positive results. The league and NFL Players Association continue to discuss how long to continue daily tests.Lynn who is in his fourth season as Chargers coach said in a conversation with team psychologist Dr. Herb Martin that he had a slight cough and body aches. He didnt decide to get tested until watching a golf tournament when one of the competitors had to withdraw after testing positive. That golfer had symptoms similar to Lynns.I never even would have known it and probably got other people infected, Lynn said.Lynn later said that the emotional toll was worse than the physical effects.The first thing, you feel a little bit like an outcast. That was probably harder for me than the sickness, he said. I was feeling like, I cant go here or Im going to infect this person. When youre used to fixing the problem, now Im the problem.The Chargers are one of the few teams to not have any player on the covid/reserve list or have anyone opt out from playing this season.The episode later showed Rams rookie linebacker Terrell Lewis self quarantining and talking to teammates via videoconference after testing positive.

Manny Machado's Grand Slam Sends Padres Over Dodgers, 6-2
08/12/2020 4:51am

Manny Machado slugged a grand slam after two consecutive errors by the Dodgers in the third inning, Garrett Richards won for the first time in two years, and the San Diego Padres defeated Los Angeles 6-2 on Tuesday night.The Padres have taken the first two games of the series after dropping two of three to the Dodgers last week in San Diego, and have won a season-best three in a row overall.Richards 1-1 won his first game since July 4, 2018, shortly before having Tommy John surgery that delayed his readiness for the 2019 season. The right-hander allowed one run and six hits in six innings. He struck out three and walked two.Machados 10th career slam came off Ross Stripling 3-1 not long after the Padres acquired his brother-in-law, first baseman Yonder Alonso from Atlanta. Alonso returns to San Diego, where he played from 2012-15 and Machado and Alonsos sister make their offseason home.Jurickson Profar hit a solo shot on Striplings second pitch leading off the fifth, extending San Diegos lead to 6-1. The Padres 32 homers lead the majors.Jake Cronenworth doubled leading off the third. Austin Hedges laid down a sacrifice bunt and Striplings throw was too high for 6-foot-5 Cody Bellinger at first, allowing Cronenworth to score on the pitchers error. Profar followed with a sacrifice bunt picked up by third baseman Justin Turner, whose throw pulled Bellinger off the bag. The Dodgers had committed four errors this season until two in a row in the inning.Fernando Tatis Jr. singled to load the bases. Trent Grisham grounded into a fielders choice to third and Hedges was out at the plate. That set up Machados blast and gave the Padres a 5-1 lead.The Dodgers offensive woes continued, best illustrated by Bellinger. He bounced into two double plays that ended innings. Then fouled a ball off his right foot and fell down in the sixth before a flyout to left. The current NL MVP was 5 for 36 at the plate in July and is 7 for 36 this month. His .176 average is the lowest in the starting lineup.Turner scored on Chris Taylors RBI single with two outs in the second. The Dodgers didnt score again until Austin Barnes RBI single with two outs in the ninth.Stripling gave up six runs and six hits in 4 2/3 innings of his first loss of the season. He struck out four and walked two.TRAINERS ROOMDodgers: SS Corey Seager completed baseball activities for the second straight day. Hes been sidelined for nearly a week because of lower back discomfort. Its going to be a slow progression, manager Dave Roberts said. The team is still considering putting him on the IL, but hasnt made a decision yet.BACK TO CALIAlonso was on the Braves restricted list after not reporting to their alternate training site. He will report to the Padres alternate site at the University of San Diego. The Padres will send cash to the Braves to complete the deal.1,000 HITSTurner notched his 1,000th career base hit with a double off the wall in left leading off the second. He signaled to ask for the ball to be saved. Hes the first Dodger to reach that mark since Machado did so while with Los Angeles on Aug. 9, 2018. Turner is 16 RBI from reaching 500 for his career.UP NEXTPadres: RHP Zach Davies 2-1, 2.87 ERA retired his first 13 batters against the Diamondbacks last week. He allowed three singles in 5 2/3 innings and struck out six.Dodgers: LHP Julio Uras 1-0, 2.40 last started against the Padres in 2016, when he was 0-0 in two starts with a 2.16 ERA and 11 strikeouts.

Portland Timbers Defeat Orlando City, 2-1, to Claim MLS is Back Championship
08/12/2020 3:30am

Dario Zuparics first goal of the season gave Portland a 2-1 victory against Orlando in the MLS is Back finale Tuesday night.Orlando was slow to react to Diego Valeris corner kick in the 66th minute, allowing Eryk Williamson to collect the ball, change direction and take a shot that Jeremy Ebobisse deflected to Zuparics feet. Zuparic didnt have to do much to get it by Pedro The Octopus Gallese, who had made two fantastic saves in the lead-up to the corner kick.The goal set off a raucous celebration on the sideline and sent Orlando into panic mode. The Lions had a chance in the closing minutes, but failed to get the equalizer.The Timbers, who spent 39 days in the MLS bubble and remained on West Coast time, hugged, danced and doused each other with water after the final whistle. They later raised the silver trophy on the pitch.It provided a lasting memory for the MLS, which managed to play 51 matches in 45 days at ESPNs Wide World of Sports complex at Disney World.No family. No friends. No fans.But it was by most accounts a rousing success, especially considering how it started. FC Dallas and Nashville were forced to withdraw days before the start because of positive coronavirus tests.Players, coaches and support personnel were tested regularly inside the MLS bubble. The league reported just two positives out of nearly 35,000 tests following the initial setbacks that threatened to derail a tournament that came with a $1.1 million purse.Portland will get $328,000 in prize money to split. The Timbers also earned a berth in the CONCACAF Champions League, their first since 2016.Orlando settled for $150,000 to share.Orlandos appearance in the finale was a surprise considering the team finished 11th out of 12 in the East last season and fired coach James OConnor. Oscar Pareja took over in 2020 and has made an immediate impact.Pareja convinced his players, including star Nani, to settle into the bubble several days early. They won the tournament opener, a group-stage victory against Miami, and ended up spending nearly seven weeks quarantined in the bubble.Portlands experience the Timbers won the MLS title in 2015 and were runners-up two years ago showed in the finale.Portlands first shot on goal found the back of the net.Valeri delivered a perfectly placed free kick into the box that Larrys Mabiala headed past Gallese in the 27th minute. It was Valeris 93rd assist with the Timbers.But considering Portland has managed just three clean sheets in its last 23 matches, it was no surprise to see a defensive breakdown just a few minutes later.Nani worked the ball down the left side following a turnover and created enough room to get a crosser into the box. Mauricio Pereyra got a foot on the ball and then took advantage of a fallen defender to tie the match.The equalizer came shortly after Portlands Sebastian Blanco and Orlando coach Pareja exchanged words during a hydration break. Referees stepped between them, and they later apologized and hugged it out.The league resumes its regular season Wednesday night with Dallas playing at Nashville. The leagues 26 teams will play 18 games apiece. A majority of the games will be played without fans because of local regulations. Teams will be subject to a rigorous testing protocol and will use charter flights or buses to limit outside contact.We have to see if it works, MLS Commissioner Don Garber said. If it does, we go through with it. If it doesnt, well have to adjust.
