It’s getting worse. The EKU wide receivers walked out of practice and will not return until everyone is tested for Covid.

Wow.

This is not good ( as the other thread says ). I’m bothered that the AD’s statement sounded like “circling the wagons.” That’s hard to do when the wheels are coming off.

Should fire Wells and bring Danny Hope in to salvage the season

Updated story says they met with Wells beforehand and wanted tests. Supposedly they were told if they had concerns about health could stay away from practice and many took him up on it.

Makes firing the past coach look like a huge mistake. This guy has lost the locker room before one game.

We are in uncharted territory here. No precedent to guide us. That said, it doesn’t look like players’ concerns are being met very well. I’m going to be very surprised if there is an EKU football season this year.

I can’t disagree. However I also know that we often only hear one side of a story or a ver parsed version. So I am just going to wait and see.

But it seems the coach and AD story is sweep it under the rug. IF they were innocent they woukd be out there making sure everyone knew. Instead they release a weak statement and refuse to talk to media while other players leave.
