I understand the point of bringing up the model.
Maybe I should have been clearer. When talking about health - Some of the smaller schools were saying they didn't have the resources to test multiple times or as much as needed. Among other complaints.
If they can't properly test a football team there's no way they're keeping up with 40-50K kids on campuses.
I'm not saying they'll let these kids die on the field but yea I'm cynical if someone is saying these guys are worried about their health.
Sure that's part of it, a small part imo. They're much, much more concerned with lawsuits & keeping the amateur status on these kids.
I don't think they'll be ready in the spring but 2 seasons in 8 seasons seems like a labor issues to me? Would any parent really want that more their kid?
I've spoke to several and they all bring up how EVERYONE is freelancing to a degree. There's no decisive voice and that's exactly where the NCAA failed. Sure there's things that aren't in their reach but not much. They could've handled this a lot better. I can't imagine that being up for debate?
More of these kids will test positive not playing football.Agreed. After a few hundred positive cases because of this decision, the season will close down.
More of these kids will test positive not playing football.
College aged kids will be less conscious about the interactions they have with others if they aren’t under the pressure of playing.
