Syracuse football players refused to practice on Thursday for the third time in eight days. The players are demanding more frequent in-house COVID-19 testing during preseason camp. In a bit of a bombshell, it was revealed the school is only testing its players once every two weeks, which is obviously woefully inadequate.
The fact that Syracuse hasn't upped its level of testing is simply incredible. In the middle of a global pandemic, where other programs have had to shut down as a result of outbreaks, the people in charge at the school seem to be asleep at the wheel.
Syracuse tested players on Thursday after they refused to practice and they will likely miss practice on Friday (or longer) as well as they wait for results to come back.
