Greg Sankey releases statement on Pac-12 and Big Ten postponements

Following the news of the Big Ten and Pac-12 deciding to postpone their fall sports seasons to the spring, SEC Commissioner Greg Sankey released a statement of his own on the two conference’s decisions.

“I look forward to learning more about the factors that led the Big Ten and Pac-12 leadership to take these actions today,” read Sankey’s statement. “I remain comfortable with the thorough and deliberate approach that the SEC and our 14 members are taking to support a healthy environment for our student-athletes.

“We will continue to further refine our policies and protocols for a safe return to sports as soon as we monitor developments around COVID-19 in a continued effort to support, educate and care for our student-athletes every day.
