Boise State Football Team Pulls Out of Arizona Bowl Due to Covid-19

By • December 28, 2021

The Boise State Football team has dropped out of the Barstool Sports Arizona Bowl due to several athletes contracting Covid-19.

With Boise State dropping out of the game against Central Michigan, the Arizona Bowl would be the 5th college football bowl game to be canceled. Four other games had already been canceled, and hours after BSU pulled out of the game, the Barstool Sports Executive Director Kym Adair said the game would be canceled altogether.

Here is what Adair said in a news release,

We exhausted every option to find a replacement team to play, but unfortunately we could not make that happen.

Boise State said on Twitter that they consulted with their medical staff and public health officials, and because of the Covid-19 protocols in place, the team would not be able to participate. Jeremiah Dickey sain in a statement to the public,

We feel for the young men in our program who were very much looking forward to closing out their season, and for some, their football careers. I would personally like to thank Kym Adair and her team at the Arizona Bowl for putting together a first-class student-athlete and fan experience that we are extremely disappointed to miss.

Reactions on social media were mixed with the announcement.

Some citizens praised BSU for canceling the game and said it should have been canceled to prevent the further spread of Covid-19. However, other citizens questioned the decision and called on BSU to update its protocols for Covid-19 and said that BSU was overreacting.

What do you think of the cancellation of the game? Did BSU make the right or wrong call?

  1. There may have been another motive:
    Tromp vs Portnoy, Communism vs Freedom.
    Tromp knows she couldn’t win, so she sucker punched/sacrificed the team for her ego and threw in the towel.

  2. COVID SCHMOVID. Everyone’s going to get COVID and everyone’s going to acquire natural immunity. Can’t avoid it. Play on!

    1. Of course
      We’ve reached the point in the revolution where (see Eastern Europe) official lies are being put forth, with officials knowing they are lying, the people know they’re lying, and they know that we know they’re lying, and we know that they know that we know they’re lying, but it is a test to see who will submit and who won’t. All that matters is submission to the official lie, as the lies will continue getting bigger, and submission will become increasingly important.

  3. It is fairly safe to say that all the players involved in both teams were young and healthy and had an almost absolute zero chance of any serious side effects from Covid or it’s variables. Yet another in a string of ridiculous overreactions.

    1. Sorry for the double post, the first one did not appear for several minutes so I thought it was being rejected because of using the word Covid. I don’t see any way of removing one of my posts‍♂️

  5. WRONG MOVE! This Covid crap is getting ridiculous! BSU is becoming a Liberal BS campus. Really sad. Those kids missed a chance of a lifetime….and for no reason!

  6. Oh no, not the Barstool Sports Arizona Bowl. Where will the 50 fans go who were going to sit in the stands that day??
    What will we lose next, the Missing Persons Extra Strength Robitussin Bowl?
    Is there any bigger waste of time and money then these 50 meaningless bowl games between 5-7 teams in front of empty stadiums. (stadia)

  7. I’m sure they tested everyone and probably none of them had symptoms or were sick but a handful tested positive according to the fake pcr test. When will people wake up. PATHETIC.
