Dan Patrick: “My source says ‘The 21-day isolation in the Big Ten was an overreaction to myocarditis, and they did this when there wasn’t any data known.’ My source says ‘I can’t imagine the Wisconsin-Purdue game will be played.’ Now there is a report that debunks the cardiac concerns, and I believe that Wisconsin is saying that with this 21-day window before players can come back from a positive virus test – that testing may not be needed for many. They’re going to try and limit the number of days you have to sit out. If you’re out 21 days, and let’s say you lose 30 players, that’s half your season basically. It’s three games that you’re going to have to sit out, and then your coach is going to have to sit out. Wisconsin may have put the entire Big Ten season in jeopardy.” (Full Segment Above)
