The NCAA overreacted in restoring a year of eligibility to spring sports students amid the coronavirus-related shutdown, University of Wisconsin athletic director Barry Alvarez said.
And UW won't be allowing those seniors to pursue another year with their teams in 2021, according to an athletic department statement Thursday that cited "a time of unprecedented uncertainty in college athletics."
"What we tried to do was encourage our seniors to go ahead and, if you're going to graduate, graduate and move on with your life," Alvarez said Wednesday on his monthly radio show on 1310 WIBA and Learfield/IMG College. "We appreciate everything that you've done. But move forward. The future is in question, and we can't promise you anything."
What the hell is Wisconsin doing? This is a a stupid and unnecessary step. I hope this comes back to bite them.
