Media notebook: Sandy Barbour discusses NCAA eligibility and Lasch Building renovations

The state of college athletics is constantly changing due to the coronavirus pandemic, as new questions and challenges are presented each day.

Sandy Barbour, the vice president of intercollegiate athletics, spoke to the media on Thursday to discuss some of these rapidly changing issues.

The NCAA has approved another year of eligibility for spring sport athletes following their seasons being cut well short due to coronavirus and it has created a lot of logistical questions.

Barbour admitted there are about “10,000 of those” but she is working very closely with Big Ten commissionar Kevin Warren to help them navigate an unprecedented decision by the NCAA.
