Big Ten's cardiac registry aims to study effects of COVID-19

JOHN J. KLAIBER JR

But the cardiac registry was noted by Big Ten leadership. That is now being cut short as the team transitions into preparing for a fall season with workouts scheduled to ramp up into practice on Monday and full pads expected on September 30. That breakthrough was cited as one of the major reasons for the Big Ten's return.

Warren and the Big Ten presidents were faulted for poor communication of the reasons for shutting down the season in the days after the August 11 decision.

"This class is not done, but up to this point, we haven't gotten it done", Franklin said. "That's all behind us. We're in such a stronger place today than on August 11", Day said.

How will the Big Ten do it?

"It is my great honor to have helped!"tweeted Trump on Wednesday after the conference made its announcement".

"The Big Ten will require student-athletes, coaches, trainers and other individuals that are on the field for all practices and games to undergo daily antigen testing. We're just gonna have to be flexible and make the best of it we possibly can".

"Medical opinions changed", Schapiro said. If someone tests positive, they will need quarantine away from the rest of the team. The data obtained from that testing will go into a database created to "answer numerous unknowns regarding the cardiac manifestations in COVID-19 positive elite athletes". Gone from the highly productive offense are All-Big Ten receivers Tyler Johnson, now with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and Rashod Bateman, who announced a week before the Big Ten's original decision to postpone the season that he would forgo his final two seasons to concentrate on preparing for the National Football League draft.

Dr. Leslie Cooper, who chairs the cardiovascular department at the Mayo Clinic in Florida, said the Big Ten's cardiac registry can potentially close a gap in research when it comes to the new coronavirus.

"I appreciate the COP/C's vigilance in continually keeping the health and well-being of our student-athletes as the top priority and deciding to move forward to a return after determining we can do so safely". "And so I take that from a positive standpoint". But there was no plan in place and the reaction was sharp.

The Pac-12 followed the Big Ten in postponing, but was far more detailed in its explanation and also had more obvious hurdles to clear.

Day says he will give them some time to think about their plans.


The Pac-12's football working group plans to meet virtually Thursday, with the conference head coaches following on Friday.

He added: "Our California and OR universities will now each individually and immediately reach out to their relevant county public health officials to seek clarification on what is required to achieve the same clearance to resume contact practice and competition". The conference is also dealing with wildfires across the West. On Wednesday, Trump praised the Big Ten's decision to resume the college football season at the end of October. Games have started, with the Big 12 and Atlantic Coast Conference kicking off last week.

How many teams could play, and when, was one of the topics of discussion.

In Nebraska, the school president, athletic director and coach Scott Frost all expressed disappointment.

But with the Big Ten announcing Wednesday that it will play an eight-game regular season beginning in October, Swinney is all for the league being included in the CFP.

And how many schools would even be available to play?

"This is what a lot of people have been fighting pretty hard for", he said.

But he knows he'll have to continue to push his players - and they'll have to push each other - to make smart decisions in order to be able to play this fall.

Schill, via a spokesman, did not have an immediate response to the Big Ten's announcement Wednesday. The championship game week contests will be based on seeding, East vs. No. 2, No. 3 vs.

"I'm really excited about the season", Tucker said. The third Big Ten schedule of the year, Alvarez said, should be ready in about a week. "I think if they'd have started in November, I don't think that would've been feasible".
