Why haven't any of the Conn Sports writers reported that Uconn is not even using their own Locker room,showers etc? Also they had a walk though and 8 offensive linemen couldn'tPractice?? And we are reading it in a Virginia Newspaper? Gavin,Alex,D Borges,Neil where are you guys??Challenges exist (not insurmountable but steep challenges nonetheless). Obviously a very recent conversation.
UVa football: Cavaliers' shuffled schedule includes challenging road tests
>>The coach of the other September home opponent is skeptical his team will still be making its trip to Charlottesville.
“Oh, man, what a mess,” UConn head football coach Randy Edsall said Wednesday. “The problem [for us] is, the state of Virginia is on a list; if we went down there, we’d have to quarantine if we go and come back.”
Connecticut athletic director David Benedict received an email Wednesday from Virginia administrator Jim Booz that listed requirements with which UConn would have to concur before playing at UVa.
“Right now, they can’t even tell you when you’re going to play,” said Edsall, noting that the original date was no longer set.
“Are we going to be able to shower in there? We can’t even use our own locker room in [Connecticut] right now. Every state is different in terms of what you can do right now.“We knew this was coming down the pike.”
When one of Connecticut’s players had COVID-19 symptoms, seven players who had been in his vicinity were quarantined. “It’s taken 10 days to get a test back now,” Edsall said. “We had a walk-through out there the other day, and we had eight offensive linemen. You can’t even practice with eight offensive linemen. It’s taking 10 to 12 days to get a test back right now.
“I don’t know what’s going to happen [as far as a season], but I don’t see it. Right now, they’re not giving dates out. How do you prepare for anything like that?”<<
