Michigan Puts Sports On Hold For At Least Two Weeks

Michigan is pausing all athletics for at least 14 days following a recommendation from the state health department, according to an exclusive report from Ethan Sears of The Michigan Daily.

Sears added that a Michigan spokesperson confirmed the report, and that all Wolverines sports are indeed on pause.

“Canceling competitions is never something we want to do, but with so many unknowns about this variant of COVID-19, we must do everything we can to minimize the spread among student-athletes, coaches, staff, and to the student-athletes at other schools,” Michigan athletic director Warde Manuel said in a statement.

Per Sears:

“This past week 22 student-athletes tested positive for COVID-19 per release, 13 more than the week prior. No coaches or staff tested positive. … As of Sunday morning, 87.2% of Michigan’s athletic contests have been played. By the end of Jan. 6, that percentage will plummet to 59.6%.”

Nothing has yet been determined on how the school intends to move forward after the two-week suspension of all athletics.

  1. Democrat Timeline in last 48 hours:

    -Biden kills fossil fuels and Michigan Jobs

    -Biden stumbles to Microphone and says Virus is in control of us and nothing can be done but to change whats happening (nobody asks biden whats happening)

    -Govenor of Michigan cites zero science and announced rest can open for indoor dining.

    -Today U of Michigan (one of the most expensive liberal Colleges in America) shuts down all sports for 14 days. 14 is exactly 4 days more than the NBA quarantine period and 7 days more than the NFL quarantine.

    does any of the above make any sense?
    No, because Democrats.

    • We are getting dangerously close to politicians appointing their own horse for a senate seat. I mean a political lifetime of sexual degeneracy, selling out your country for fiat currency, being above the law by having the courts and judges on your side, and who knows what Satanic blood drinking gatherings they’ve gone to can make a leader lose their mind.
