Despite being optimistic about conference-only play, Chris and Mya Hinton still have concerns. So, with two sons currently in college football programs — Myles at Stanford and sophomore defensive lineman Chris Jr. at Michigan — the Hintons have chosen to be vocal.
Thursday, March 12, 2020 was what Michigan softball coach Carol Hutchins described as “the worst day of every coach’s career.” The day COVID-19 brought the entire world of sports to a sudden stop.
That was 87 days ago. By now, the softball season would be over, the champions would have been crowned in Oklahoma City and someone would have carelessly asked Hutchins if she had any plans to retire after her 37th season as the head coach of Michigan softball.
On Monday, the University announced football, men’s basketball and women’s basketball teams can return for voluntary workouts. Before the athletes can participate, however, they will first have to go through the athletic department’s 14-day pre-report assessment, followed by a six-day resocialization period.
The process will include symptom surveys, both a COVID-19 test and an antibody test, periods for shelter-in-place and more.
