    Will only play in-conference football games. I think this is the first shoe to drop and the CFB season is now probably only 50-50 to occur at all. You will have conferences playing different schedules in states that have different rules and, for any team, as soon as one player or even staff member tests positive, I think that means quarantine for all. Trying to stay optimistic, but I think we lose the year.

    Big Ten football teams had been scheduled to play 33 nonconference games at home.
    The MAC conference will be hit especially hard financially with the cancelation of these
    games. For example, Bowling Green will lose $2.2 million for not playing Ohio State and
    Illinois. Other schools like Toledo, Central Michigan will lose over a million. App State
    and Florida Atlantic were also guaranteed one million for games.

    Lawsuits....I'm guessing yes.

    U MUST limit the travel!!!

    So Rutgers cancels Monmouth, Syracuse, and Temple which is a combined 340 miles of travel but they will travel to Purdue which is 748 miles and Nebraska which is 1,286 miles.

    Huh??

    There is no logic to this...just fear. Pac10 is rumored to be the next conference to go with conference games only. In their case, there is the added bonus of not being embarrassed by the overwhelming number of non-conference losses.

    If we play conference games only, couldnt we then have an 8 team playoff?

    Each 5 conference winners, the best group of 5 team, and then 2 teams voted by a committee?

    What would be the problem?

    What's the end point? The flu vaccine hardly ever reaches 50% effective plus you have a growing number of morons who won't get any vaccine. That all means the virus is here for a long time and it really gets messy when covid and the flu are both occurring later this year.

    Sorry to see the Iowa/Iowa State game canceled.

    That's a big deal each year for the Iowa folks.

    Big deal for the state!

    Ducks had a real good chance of knocking off Ohio St this year.. A great defense and a fired up home base would give us a helluva shot

    I believe the lack of early action by the NCAA brought this on. Every conference is on their own to create uniform rules for the virus. Therefore they fear playing non-con teams who may not follow the same rules. Also buys them a month.

    The H1N1 virus of 2009 was much less deadly but did attack the college student age and younger the worse. CDC estimates are that 60 million Americans were infected. They were testing early on in 2009 and then abruptly stopped when it went out of control. Death rates from H1N1 have been estimated between 9000-18000 dead.
    That 60 million H1N1 infected really bothers me. Are we going to see that again? Only at 3 mil now! Lord, I hope not!

    NCAA; The NCAA Sport Science Institute released updated guidelines for college sports in regards to COVID-19 testing and protocols on Thursday.

    The guidelines are intended to give schools instruction on how to return to athletic competition as safely as possible. The recommendations include:


    • Conducting and getting results from COVID-19 tests within 72 hours of competition in high contact risk sports (basketball, field hockey, football, ice hockey, lacrosse, rowing, rugby, soccer, squash, volleyball, water polo, wrestling).
    • Checking athletes and athletic personnel wellness is required before entering athletics facilities.
    • Isolating asymptomatic carriers for 10 days.
    • Isolating symptomatic carriers for at least 10 days since symptoms first appeared and at least 72 hours since recovery.
    • Quarantining individuals with high-risk exposure for 14 days.
    • Using Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) testing is preferred, but others will be considered as testing evolves.



    Conferences can add to these guidelines should they chose to, but they are the minimum required.

    However, fall sports still may be canceled or postponed this season.

    “Any recommendation on a pathway toward a safe return to sport will depend on the national trajectory of COVID-19 spread,” NCAA chief medical officer Brian Hainline said in the release. “The idea of sport resocialization is predicated on a scenario of reduced or flattened infection rates.”


    Isolating individuals for 14 days if they’ve had high risk of exposure — being within 6 feet of someone with COVID-19 for at least 15 minutes, having direct physical contact with an infected person, etc. — could cause large groups of players or entire teams to sit out of practice and competition for that time.
