Multiple SEC schools have earnings from the summit deducted as a consequence of not following appropriate COVID-19 protocols, sources told ESPN.
According to a memo issued by SEC commissioner Greg Sankey a week, colleges will have their seminar earnings distribution cut $100,000 for every week that they don’t follow protocols.
The memo, which was acquired by ESPN, also stated that suspensions will be regarded as a failure to comply.
Underlined and bolded for emphasis, Sankey wrote, “Don’t unwind — and don’t let people around you unwind — due to a couple of weeks of succeeding.”
However, this week was anything but effective for the summit, as two matches — Vanderbilt vs. Missouri and LSU vs. Florida — were postponed as a consequence of coronavirus outbreaks.
Additionally, Alabama coach Nick Saban and athletic director Greg Byrne declared Wednesday which they had tested positive for the virus.
