Yes you would have to allow for extra scholarships. Expand rosters etc.. It would be a giant pain in the ass.. There is also the little things like playing time that underclassmen would have received but then would not.. Kids will be out of shape etc etc...
I’m gonna guess that a lot of high profile players will just declare for the draft. They’ll just spend their time working out and prepping for a pro day. They won’t risk getting the virus and won’t bother with school.
Mac announced today that all fall sports are suspended till sept 3 which happens to be Footballs opening night... We are supposed to play Maine but Maine cancelled its season today.. So as of right now we are opponent less
I'm wondering what the trickle down effect of this will be. Will it reach the high school level. I know we have a k-5 board meeting Monday where we are going to vote on whether or not to play. Like most other board votes go we already know the outcome and its going to be 6-4 in favor of playing. I love coaching and watching my son play but I am voting no. I thought a lot about it and I can't have it my conscious should something happen to one of these kids or their family members. I am going to let my son play but I'm undecided if I am going to coach. It would be pretty hypocritical to vote no but then still coach a team
People are shooting craps with other’s wellbeing and even want to fight wearing a mask. The risk is fairly low for young kids, but they don’t operate in a parent less/teacher less/grandparent less/ coach less/any other more at risk group vacuum. Parents will be out with kids at their events and off it goes. Especially when folks think a mask is a shariah law abomination from the devil. (Yet somehow healthcare providers haven’t turned evil or given up liberty by wearing masks since how long?)
People in Utah are protesting their kids having to wear masks at school and are invoking Jesus as defense against it. Pretty sure Jesus would have been FOR loving thy neighbor and looking out for each other’s wellbeing.
So Rob, I respect you for trying take a more personally responsible path.
The battle lines are being drawn & it will be as usual the closed coasts & the middle/south wanting to stay open. I here in Colorado think the governor will keep schools closed unless a month from now their is a vaccine.

Much of the information we get about Covid is suspect, to say the least. College athletics and testing for Covid are mentioned in this article. Looking at the stats this article makes sense .
From the article:
"The professional and college athletics departments are making the same error. They are testing their athletes daily or every other day using a test that is no better than 70 percent sensitive. Eventually all the players will test positive. They will be isolated for fourteen days, after which they may again test positive, ad infinitum."
