NSN Podcast: Sad to see PSAC, small-college athletes losing opportunities to play

On this edition of the Nittany Sports Now podcast, Cory Giger is joined by Joe Lodanosky of the Pennsylvania Sports Network to discuss the impact of the coronavirus pandemic on PSAC and small college programs and athletes.

While major-college programs can keep playing sports because of lucrative TV deals and overall finances, small-college programs don’t have the resources to do the kind of testing it takes to keep playing safely. Therefore, athletes at these schools are missing out on their seasons, and that can have an impact on high school kids, as well, with regards to recruiting if the college programs don’t have the roster space to add new players as they usually would from year to year.

Joe joined me on my radio show, “Sports Central,” Thursday on WRTA in Altoona and offers some tremendous insight into how things work on that level. Check out our podcast here:
