    Big Ten Cancels Fall Football (CFB Thread)

    The good news is Illinois is the only school where the positivity rate is meaningful because they test everyone. Less than1% of nearly 88,000 tests

    Exactly. Football is just so unimportant as COVID-19 spreads basically uncontrolled through the SEC.

    Illinois is the only school in the B1G doing anything close to what's necessary to hold classes (The university represents 1-2% of the daily tests in the United States) in a pandemic and their leadership isn't interested. They, rightly, are focusing on the health and safety of the students.

    The bold makes no sense. They can leave, but they have to sit out a season. Assuming that season is 2020, they're going to be able to play in 2021 and not before.. ...so the same as staying in the B1G

    Illinois is one of the most prestigious and scientifically literate universities in the country. They're likely driving the decision not to play. Our President got a vote and he voted "no". It's clear Whitman and Smith respect that. We voted to cancel. We're not going anywhere.

    No B1G is going to have their program crumble

    CTE doesn't spread between players and immediately make them sick. Sorry, I get your point and it's not a horrible one, but let's not pretend COVID-19 myocarditis is anything like CTE. Also, it's not that uncommon.

    Not very far unless the NCAA changes transfer rules. They don’t just get to transfer and by the time they get to play the B1G will likely be back

    Definitely. The players are self-reporting at this point.

    Yeah, but if you're stuck by lightning, the strike doesn't spread to your family, or your at risk elders, or your teammates.

    Illini Football & CFB 2020

    Yeah probably. There may well be a vaccine, but it's probably not going to be widely available in January or February, and if college football players get priority over the rest of society, we have a problem. I could see nurses, doctors, and the elderly getting the vaccine early. We shall see.

    Illinois has no interest in joining the Big 12. There isn't very good evidence any of the big ten teams want to leave. The season will likely be dependent on whether or not the SEC decides it's had a change of heart and now values player safety. At this point, I'm betting no conferences play.

    The universities have a lot of ground to stand on here, though. It's arguable they can do the right thing for the wrong reasons. No one can blame them for not wanting to expose their players to COVID-19. Although, then again, it's arguable that all player safety efforts are about money in sports.

    The loss of money is happening regardless. Heart inflammation is a major side effect of COVID19 among healthy people. Linemen are likely high risk. The schools do not want to pay for players' chronic injuries. If the B1G schools can't survive one cancellation, the whole college football system...

    Yeah, but if baseball has taught us anything, if one player gets it from outside the locker room, 12 of them will get it from him in the locker room. Schools clearly have their legal experts saying "This is not okay, we can't do this".
