While some leagues have started their seasons again, college sports always faced an uphill battle amidst the Covid-19 pandemic, considering their players are unpaid student-athletes. Schools like Maryland have spent most of the summer creating as safe an environment as possible to prepare for the 2020 college football season, but on Tuesday afternoon the Big Ten officially postponed the fall season.

While many athletes had already opted not to play this season prior to the decision, there were plenty more that were ready to get back to a sense of normalcy on the field. As news leaked out early this week, Maryland's players and coaches alike shared their reactions on social media.
