No Bruins will take the field for the remainder of 2020, and two of the most powerful figures in UCLA Athletics said they still don’t have all the answers.
All fall Pac-12 sports have been postponed for the rest of the calendar year because of the COVID-19 pandemic, the conference announced Tuesday.
“The health, safety and well-being of our student-athletes and all those connected to Pac-12 sports has been our number one priority since the start of this current crisis,” said Pac-12 Commissioner Larry Scott. “Our student-athletes, fans, staff and all those who love college sports would like to have seen the season played this calendar year as originally planned, and we know how disappointing this is.”
In the official announcement, the conference also released the medical recommendations that went into its decision.
UCLA women’s soccer has long been an advocate for social justice – from players kneeling for the national anthem in 2017 to leading the Women’s March Los Angeles in 2019.
That number is plastered on signs all along Bruin Walk, with UCLA claiming itself as “the No. 1 public university in the U.S.”
It is also where the state of California finds itself on the list of total COVID-19 cases, in the middle of a pandemic killing a reported roughly 1,000 Americans daily.
UCLA football coach Chip Kelly tested positive for coronavirus in March, according to the Los Angeles Times.
No official sources could be cited as Kelly’s health records are private, but the report says that multiple people close to the team, who remained anonymous, confirmed the story.
UCLA has chosen not to disclose cases except for UCLA’s official COVID-19 tracker.

At least eight UCLA football players have tested positive for COVID-19, the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health director told reporters Wednesday.
College football is happening.
Well, at least for now.
When the Pac-12 announced its full football schedule Friday, the conference grounded a fall season in reality after months of bad news and speculation.
Fall sports have been given a road map to a return.
The NCAA Board of Governors released Wednesday a list of requirements for schools and conferences to conduct fall sports, as well as implemented an Aug.
