WYOMING — University of Wyoming Athletic Director, Tom Burman, responded on Facebook to the Mountain West conference and their decision to cancel fall sports.

“The sun did come up today! I am not pleased where we have landed as it relates to our fall sports, but we need to stay diligent about health and safety. I am blessed to work with so many great staff and students, who are struggling to determine how to go forward,” Burman said.

The Cowboys football team had planned to play ten games this season starting in September. They had also made plans to limit capacity at War Memorial Stadium on their home turf. These plans fell through the roof when MWC canceled all fall sports earlier this week.

“It is pretty simple – do the next right thing and mentor those around you to do the same. We will find a day when we are watching our athletes clad in Brown and Gold and competing – sooner than later. Also, please support the many businesses who have supported us for decades who are going to be struggling. This includes restaurants, hotels, bars, Brown & Gold, and so many others. They need us big time! #OneWyoming,” Burman stated.
