No worries towards executing a “fall ball” plan.I'm a political moderate and I tend to sit on the fence with regard to the NCAA playing football this fall. At the same time, I don't really want the Illini (and Big 10) to get left out of the party if everyone else plays and participates. As such, I've spent the last hour catching up on college football news over the past 48 hours, including the pending Big 10 vote by the Presidents/Chancellors. It was very interesting reading. In all that I saw and read, the sentence below was the ONE thing that bothered me......
"If massive outbreaks happen, and other conferences shut down their season, no worries. Shelve any “fall” plans and go back the winter plan."
Really? NO WORRIES? I don't think we can say NO WORRIES after watching what happened in metro NYC and various other hot spots this past spring. I believe the university decision makers are trying to keep things safe for their students and faculty, and don't want to walk into a hornets nest and be responsible for loss of life and/or severe illness. I trust their judgement, regardless of how the Big 10 votes.
Not no worries that “outbreaks happened” and the potential damage that could ensue.
