We anticipated this challenge and had already put into place some cost svaing measures.

The university under the leadership of president curtis and stewardship of cfo diann mckee have allowed us to be ready to compete despite the challenges... however as we move forward we will need the support of all isu alumni and fans to offset the costs brought on by this virus" end quote... //////// today's decision by the m-v-c does not impact winter and spring sports..

They all remain scheduled at this time.
