On Thursday, the Big Ten announced its schools, including Maryland, would play conference-only schedules in football and other fall sports. On Wednesday, the Ivy League postponed its entire fall athletic schedule, with hopes — but no promise — of pushing games to the spring. That announcement came a few hours after Stanford, one of the wealthiest universities in the country, said it would cut 11 programs from its highly successful athletic department. Another college sports titan, Ohio State, suspended workouts for its fall teams. The ACC postponed the start of Olympic sports (men’s and women’s cross country, field hockey, men’s and women’s soccer and volleyball) until Sept. 1.
