ESPN’s Doris Burke opens up about COVID-19 struggle, NBA’s resumption concerns

  ESPN’s Doris Burke opens up about COVID-19 struggle, NBA’s resumption concerns When asked about the challenges the NBA will face as it attempts to mount a comeback next month, Burke didn’t mince words.“The thing that I felt the most was fatigue and headache,” Burke said about having coronavirus. “So for a good stretch of the first two weeks of that, I was just thinking I had a bad flu, because my symptoms were not aligning with what was being told were the main symptoms — the shortness of breath, the pressure on the chest — I didn’t have those scary symptoms. So for a good stretch of time, I didn’t think I had it. But then I finally decided to get tested.

When the NCAA lifted its moratorium on voluntary workouts and student-athletes started returning to campus in June, things looked promising for the college football season. Now with spikes in the coronavirus across the country, including top universities, hope for football seems to be dwindling.

Pac-12 commissioner Larry Scott has expressed optimism about delivering college football in the fall for months. The conference was preparing in May for a normal season and Scott offered a timetable for the game’s return a few weeks later.

Pac - 12 Conference commissioner Larry Scott said Thursday that college athletics officials will need to begin deciding whether they are prepared to go forward with sports amid the COVID-19 pandemic without all schools being able to field teams, even within the same conference.

As schools started discussing plans to bring football players back to campus in June, Scott expressed even more confidence that fans wouldn’t miss out on college football this fall. Unfortunately, things have taken a turn for the worse.

“Unless we see a change in the trajectory of the spread of the virus and its impact pretty quickly, I think the situation’s a lot more perilous than it was a few weeks ago,”  Scott said, via the NCAA.

The situation has changed dramatically for the United States and the sports world. In May, many expected the number of COVID-19 cases would drop and things would slow down in the summer before a potential second wave hit late in the fall.

Instead, the country is seeking a massive spike in positive tests for the coronavirus. Florida, which has been shattering daily records for new cases, announced Saturday that it had more than 11,000 new positive COVID-19 tests and the Untied States set a new record with 55,000 cases on Thursday.

The Pac - 12 Conference is a collegiate athletic conference that operates in the Western United States, participating in 24 sports at the NCAA Division I level.

The spike has also been seen across college campuses, especially for college football programs. More than 100 football players have test positive for the coronavirus and the number continues to soar every few days. Given all of this is happening with only select student-athletes on campus, it raises immediate concerns for what will take place when more students return.

“I think what we’ve seen over the last few weeks gives us reason to be concerned that when campuses open up, there could be real spikes and pressures on the health care system,” Scott said. “From my perspective, that’s really the biggest risk to college sports in the fall.”

Pac-12 athletic directors reportedly went behind Scott’s back in May to discuss their own plans for college football. As part of that conversation, some schools admitted they would accept if other programs within their conference played football while others didn’t.

The league’s plan to play the final three months of the season at Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando will cost it over $150 million, according to Brian Windhorst of ESPN. That includes the cost of housing all 22 teams at three resorts. It also includes three arenas, seven practice courts, meals, and security, among other costs.

Given the COVID-19 pandemic is now getting worse at a moment when many expected it to slow down, things don’t look promising for college football.

Since the NCAA lifted its moratorium on voluntary workouts and student-athletes returned to campus, there has been a massive spike in COVID-19 cases across campuses.
