Air Force Announces Resumption Of All Intercollegiate Athletics
The Air Force Academy today announced that it has resumed all intercollegiate athletics despite the feral government shutdown, although no appropriated funds will be used to fund athletic programs. Tomorrow night's home football game against San Diego State "will happen." Navy "also has resumed intercollegiate athletic activities as normally scheduled" but does not plan an announcement (USATODAY.com, 10/9). Air Force yesterday "cancelled its afternoon football press conference and did not make players or coaches available to media after practice" (Colorado Springs GAZETTE, 10/9).
