SEC announces extension of sports suspensions, including football practices and meetings
We aren’t any closer to the return to normalcy in the Southeastern Conference. In fact, we just took a step further away from it.
While that’s unwanted news, the league is doing what it believes is best for all involved in announcing the league’s suspension of all sporting activities has been pushed back to April 15. This suspension now includes spring football across the SEC as practices, meetings and everything in between are now prohibited for the next month.
Here’s the statement released by the SEC on Friday afternoon:
“The SEC today announced that all organized team activities, including competitions, team and individual practices, meetings and other organized gatherings, will be suspended through Apr. 15. The SEC had previously announced all competition was suspended through Mar. 30.”
This news comes a day after the SEC announced all sporting events were to be pushed back until March 30. The school’s 14 ADs held a teleconference on Friday to discuss their next steps with several league ADs set to hold press conferences around the SEC to discuss the latest news Friday evening.
