My daughter is at U of I, she is only going to have 1 in person class this semester, a chemistry lab. And, she could have done that remotely too, if she chose. Before anyone asks, labs last semester were done where one person did the lab, and the students had to figure out the mistakes that they made from reviewing the data. I would think going bubble after Christmas, could work. 2 week quarantine, push all conference games to 2021, play games every 3-4 days starting 1/10. By 3/6, that is 17 games. Just spit-balling here.
That's a fair point, though it only accounts for this semester. If the spring semester is the same as the fall, not big deal, but if the spring semester is more heavily in-person, that makes it much more complicated.
