No word yet on Green Bay, Marquette spring sports athletes

While the University of Wisconsin-Madison is advising its senior spring sports athletes to seek additional options, Green Bay and Marquette have not shut the door yet.


The NCAA announced two weeks ago that it would grant spring sports athletes an extra year of eligibility because the COVID-19 pandemic canceled their season. They left the scholarship part of the equation up to the individual schools though. Each school lost money they were expecting to get as a part of revenue sharing with the NCAA because of canceled events including the NCAA Division 1 basketball tournament. According to Milwaukee's CBS affiliate, Marquette athletic director Bill Scholl said two weeks ago he agreed with the decision but it raised a lot of questions like what to do with squads with full rosters and an incoming recruiting class coming into the fold. Green Bay's FOX affiliate talked to Green Bay athletic director Charles Guthrie two weeks ago as well as he said the school will welcome any of the 10 affected seniors back, though some of the players may be moving on with their future on their own accord.
