    Right. Not disputing that. But in California right now there are ZERO sports for High School and College...regardless of the amount of contact.

    It’s like allowing Walmart to open as an essential business but not allowing other small businesses to open.

    Looks like COVID has started to clear up sooner than the B1G officials thought so it looks like it'll be safe to play football start in late October rather than waiting until Spring. I'd call it a miracle but it looks like the virus is still running rampant in WA/OR/CA so it's probably only safe for professional athletes to play football in those states (sorry PAC12).

    Larry Scott issued a release saying that the Puss12 will not be playing. Hope they all go bankrupt.

    I guess my season tickets will get used in some capacity this fall. My guess is Halloween weekend.

    LOL. How pathetic is the P12?

    They cancel the season right after the B10. PROTECT THE STUDENT ATHLETES!!

    Since then, nary a word.

    B10 realizes they were super dumb to protect the super athletes and want in on the action, so they announce they are back!

    P12: "UUUHHH... YEAH! US TOO! WE HAVE PROTECTED OUR ATHLETES SUFFICIENTLY! WE HAVE CONVINCED OUR GOVERNORS TO CHANGE THEIR RULES FOR US! WE ARE BACK!!!!"

    Seriously, so hilarious

    For the last few weeks lots of ute fans on twitter saying how irresponsible and dangerous BYU's decision to play has been. Can't wait to see their opinions change overnight.

    There is still the little matter of the NCAA cancelling all championships for the entire year.

    When they start suing, it will be the coaches, the ADs, the fitness staff, the conferences, and now the NCAA if they walk this back.

    The situation has changed with the rapid testing capability, but the PAC12 is in a tough situation. Stand by themselves and fall further behind the other conferences or about-face on health of athletes and bring in money to keep athletic departments afloat. Either way they will be laughed at (and probably sued).

    The rapid testing thing seems to be tho excuse used by P12 defenders. What a copout. They've known about rapid testing for weeks

    And apparently if you use the rapid test it mitigates the long term heart issues from the virus. Magic!

    Trevor Lawrence is smarter than the whole PAC12 leaders and schools. He was right that the athletes are better off in a football program, being monitored and responsible to something other than themselves. Covid will happen at college but it’s not happening on the football teams and instead is happening off campus.

    Totally agree. Gov. Newsom sounded like a moron in the espn article JiC linked.

    Roughly five hours after Scott's statement was released, Newsom said there is nothing in the state guidelines that prevents the Pac-12 from resuming. However, he cited a scenario that seemingly contradicted that assertion.
    "We put out, I think, thoughtful guidelines and again, in partnership with the NCAA, about cohorting during workouts and practices," Newsom said. "Now, this manifests very differently depending on the sport. Basketball cohorting of up to 12 may be a little easier than football up to 12, but offensive teams, defensive teams are able to coordinate and practice and the like."

    https://www.espn.com/college-football/story/_/id/29898469/wildfires-coronavirus-testing-complicate-pac-12-conference-possible-return-playing-football
    Either Newsom doesn't know the rules of football or he doesn't know the rules of the Covid measures in his own state.

    But, at the end of the day, it strikes me as really unfair to expect kids to practice & play games when their classes are all (or mostly) online.

    It has nothing to do with testing. I still think this was mostly about athletes threatening to unionize. Covid made an easy out. Really interested to see what happens next.
