Mizzou Athletics releases COVID-19 testing results

Mizzou Links for Thursday, July 9

Here are some COVID-19 updates from Mizzou...

Mizzou Athletics announced on Wednesday afternoon the latest COVID-19 test results from the athletic department. Of the 377 that were tested, only 10 were positive.

The testing involved players, coaches, and staff members, and Dave Matter reported that nine of the 10 that have been tested positive are athletes, but none of them have been hospitalized.

All things considered, that seems to be pretty decent news around the athletic program.

Also......as expected, The Ivy League has officially announced that they are postponing all Fall sports.

“As athletics is expected to operate consistent with campus policies, it will not be possible for Ivy League teams to participate in intercollegiate athletics competition prior to the end of the fall semester.”

So....what does this exactly mean for the FBS this upcoming season? Just don’t expect this to impact FBS and Power Five’s decision making, as Brett McMurphy explained:

However, let’s remember that the Ivy League was the first domino to fall back in March when they became the first league to cancel their conference tournament. The latest developments for this college football season just haven’t been all that great, and there is going to be some very difficult decisions to be made here fairly soon.

All I got to say is, wear a mask, people. It’s not that hard.
