Give Geo a follow, folks. He has something to say. And Rutgers should be proud of him for having the courage to say it.
The # of followers I’ve lost for speaking out about people wanting equality is so sad. Acknowledging change is needed is the 1st step. it goes way beyond police brutality! Educational inequalities, access to credit, workplace discrimination. The list goes on. Enough is enough 💔
Another big-time guest on Birminology as @CoachJeffHafley chats with @LettermenRow. There is always something to learn when Hafley speaks, and this conversation doesn’t disappoint.
I'll be interested to see what comes of this. I hope part of it is this: Encourage the many smart Rutgers athletes to speak out and share their experiences about race. Too often in college athletics, that's discouraged.
With another extension of the dead period through July, starting to get the feeling NCAA might just wind up banning on-campus visits all season. Considering how attendance is likely to be limited, adding bodies and more travel is probably an issue it won’t want to deal with now.
The #CBJ will return -- whenever exactly that may be -- with a five-game Stanley Cup Playoffs qualifying series vs. the Toronto Maple Leafs. The Blue Jackets will be the ninth seed, with Toronto the No. 8 seed.
No decisions have to be made until July, and it's certainly possible that the schedule could be played in its entirety. But there is some growing momentum for conference-only seasons in college football this year, and the plans make sense as a solution. https://t.co/9Hb8oEWGq5
Good news for Rutgers.
UPDATE: Professional sports teams in NJ may return to training and even competition – if their leagues choose to move in that direction. We have been in constant discussions with teams about necessary protocols to protect the health and safety of players, coaches, and personnel. https://t.co/yMrCFtSyqY
Peter DeBoer's @SanJoseSharks defeated Vegas in the 2019 playoffs. In January of 2020 DeBoer became the HC of the Golden Knights. "It was a little awkward!" -@GoldenKnights HC Peter DeBoer on his first team meeting in Vegas. Full Chat Here: https://t.co/L2nemQjdgd (@ZachGelb)
Consider me in the camp that conference media days have outlived their usefulness. My hope would this leads to change for future with an emphasis on more players/coaches available for local media days — and if some need to appear for a wider audience, there’s technology for that.
The 2020 Big Ten Football Media Days and Kickoff Luncheon scheduled to take place July 22-23 will not be held as scheduled in order to ensure the health, safety and wellness of our student-athletes, coaches, administrators, fans, partners and media. https://t.co/6zcTQVbxoi
