Red Bull Suggests F1 Drivers Get Coronavirus, NCAA Votes Extra Season Of Eligibility, Funny SEC Shorts


Helmut Marko, part of Red Bull motorsports’ management team, suggested the Formula 1 drivers for his team should join together so they all could get infected with the coronavirus. According to Marko, “They are all strong young men in good health. That way they would be prepared whenever the action starts.” The rest of the team’s management vehemently dismissed the idea.


The NCAA voted to grant an extra season of eligibility to spring sports athletes whose seasons were canceled because of the coronavirus. The waivers apply to athletes competing in spring sports including, baseball, softball, outdoor track and field, tennis, golf, rowing, lacrosse, men’s volleyball, beach volleyball, and women’s water polo.  The waivers do not include winter sports such as basketball. Athletes normally have four seasons out of a five-year time frame to compete in college sports, but this ruling will extend the eligibility for these athletes.  According to Council chair and the athletic director at the University of Pennsylvania, M. Grace Calhoun, “The council’s decision gives individual schools the flexibility to make decisions at a campus level. The board of governors encouraged conferences and schools to take action in the best interest of student-athletes and their communities, and now schools have the opportunity to do that.”

For a much-needed laugh this morning, check out SEC Shorts, a hilarious compilation of videos about football in the south. They recently put together a new video preparing fans (thanks to virtual reality headsets) for a year without football. Check it out.
