Greg Schiano, Rutgers’ mother, about whether college football should be played



Greg Schiano, Rutgers' mother, about whether college football should be played

Greg Schiano refused to give his opinion. He also could not answer whether the strengths in college football did the right thing by trying to go through the season amid the continuing chaos created by the new coronavirus pandemic in the country.

“I don’t know? You just put everything on permanent detention?” Soccer coach Rutgers said on a video call with reporters. “Those are all questions that are above my knowledge and I am trying to get knowledge about this.

“You try to gather as much information as possible, and that’s what I’m trying to do.”

When schools across the country have tried to take the first step to play in the fall by bringing players back to campus for voluntary training in recent weeks, positive cases have emerged in several prominent programs that have doubted the ability to start the season. at the time, or play in the fall altogether. Clemson has 28 positive tests for the virus. Texas has 13 positive players. At least 30 LSU players are placed in quarantine, either for positive tests or for contact with someone who has it, according to Sports Illustrated. Kansas State stopped training for 14 days after 14 positive tests and Houston temporarily stopped training. On Monday, Iowa announced nine positive tests from 40 student athletes, coaches and staff members in the past week.

Rutgers, who began training on June 15, has had two positive tests so far, with the other three in quarantine as a precaution to make contact with one positive case.

“You cannot reduce the risk to zero,” Schiano said. “How can you prepare for a season and eliminate as much risk as you can? You must foster understanding of the top three: social distance, masks and washing our hands. “

Formal training was permitted to begin in July, after the NCAA Division I Board approved the Football Supervisory Committee’s plan on Thursday. That allowed the team to start holding meetings and walk-throughs on July 24 and the preseason practiced no earlier than 7 August.

Schiano stressed repeatedly that Rutgers’ training was voluntary, and there were some players who chose not to return to school. Players, coaches, and staff members have been tested three times. One of the two players who tested positive never made it back to campus because the positive test was the result of a test order by mail sent by Rutgers to the players. Other players pass their first test and receive a positive test the second time.

Schiano will not let his opinion be known about what he believes the NCAA should do, other than to say that he feels comfortable enough to hold training and have players on campus. That can clearly change. At present, there are more questions than answers.

“What I say to my team is this: At the moment, we are told that we will have a season that will open on the 5th weekend. [of September] and we will prepare that date, “he said. “And if that date changes, we will turn around and make other plans. I think until there is some real substantive medical science, that we come with vaccines or with treatment plans that really limit the death of this virus, I think we will all try to find out when we go. “

Maestro de Braga is the first Portuguese in the National Symphony Orchestra of Cuba.

Maestro Filipe Cunha, Artistic Director of the Philharmonic Orchestra of Braga, has been invited to conduct the Cuban National Symphony Orchestra, as announced today.

According to a statement sent by O MINHO, “he will be the first Portuguese conductor to conduct this orchestra in its entire history.”

In addition to this orchestra, the maestro will also work with the Lyceo Mozarteum de la Habana Symphony Orchestra.

The concerts will take place on 4 and 12 March 2023 at the National Theater of Cuba in Havana.

In the words of the maestro, quoted in the statement, “these will be very beautiful concerts with difficult but very complex pieces” and therefore he feels “very motivated”.

From the very beginning, Rachmaninoff’s Piano Concerto No. 2 will be performed by an Italian pianist (Luigi Borzillo), whom the maestro wants to bring to Portugal later this year. In the same concert, Mendelshon’s First Symphony will be performed.

Then, at the second concert, in the company of the Mexican clarinetist Angel Zedillo, he will perform the Louis Sfora Concerto No. 2. In this concert, the maestro also conducts Tchaikovsky’s Fifth Symphony.

“This is an international recognition of my work. An invitation that I accept with humility and great responsibility. I was surprised to learn that I would be the first Portuguese member of the Cuban National Symphony Orchestra. This is a very great honor,” the maestro said in a statement.

“I take with me the name of the city of Braga and Portugal with all the responsibility that goes with it, and I hope to do a good job there, leaving a good image and putting on great concerts. These will be very special concerts because, in addition to performing pieces that I love, especially Rachmaninov and Tchaikovsky, I will be directing two wonderful soloists who are also my friends. It will be very beautiful,” concludes Filipe Cunha.
