And I could get struck by lightning or hit by a bus this afternoon. Not likely though. This is NOT about safety. This is solely about liability issues.
I agree about liability being the driving force here. What is the conference going to do now regarding the safety of athletes? or are they mostly on their own until further notice, or whatever individual schools decide to do? I used to be on the 'cancel the season already' train, but after reading about the stringent protocols the football team had put in place, I changed my mind. They're the safest of anyone on campus.
