Ohio State opens camp
COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Ohio State opened preseason training camp Thursday with strict coronavirus protocols in place and under a cloud of uncertainty about whether the revised 10-game season will even be played at all.
Rules requiring testing, masks, frequent disinfecting of equipment and social distancing — at least as much as is possible with around 120 players on the field — were observed at the Woody Hayes Athletic Center as the Buckeyes gathered for the first of 24 practices leading up to their Sept. 3 opener at Illinois.
With schools already having abandoned their nonconference schedules because of the pandemic, the Big Ten released a schedule — along with a long list of required medical protocols — that includes 10 games per school, evenly split between home and away. Whether there will be any fans in 105,000-seat Ohio Stadium is still an open question.
And there’s still a chance the season will be scrapped, depending upon virus trends and consultations with government officials. That will be determined in the coming weeks. Some smaller conferences have already done away with fall sports.
Coach Ryan Day said he talked to his team about all those issues.
“We don’t know what’s coming tomorrow,” Day said after practice. “Certainly anything’s possible. We all know that, but we’re really not focused on that.”
