Every school, even an IVY, cancelling a sport increases the legal exposure for every school that goes forward with athletics. The number of schools that suspended athletics is going to figure prominently in the opening argument of every lawsuit filed by the family of anyone that gets critically ill or dies of COVID as a result of playing. And the AD's and Presidents of schools that chose not to play will be popular witnesses in those trials.College Football's scheduling approach is a runaway freight train to disaster. The P5 schools keeping their existing schedules because of the TV money is so staggeringly reckless and irresponsible that they are legally negligent on their face. It would take one COVID death for an athletic department to be sued into oblivion.
The smart play for UConn may be to take this season off and then see what is left of college football next year.
Ah yes the No True Scotsman argument.If we cancelled it would be putting $$$ ahead of athletes. Any athlete worth his salt wants to play.
Ah yes the No True Scotsman argument.
any REAL athlete would want to play. If you're afraid and 19 years old, you're not a REAL athlete. Never mind that many professional athlete have decided not to play despite giving up MILLIONS of dollars, but if you're a kid and you are afraid, you aren't a REAL athlete, you heard it here, from the safety of the BlueDogs Keyboard.
