    That's where I am now. You can have all the best intentions and follow all the guidelines, but if you put large numbers of people in close proximity, you're playing Russian Roulette. Sooner or later the chamber will be loaded.

          With their recent history of harboring child rapists on the staff you'd think they'd be happy to have anyone show up for a game . . .

            • Sally Jenkins in the Post.

              College sports embraced reckless greed. With the coronavirus crisis, the bill has come due.

              The coronavirus crisis is an incredible diagnostic tool. The excesses have never been so sharply delineated: The $50 million stadium upgrades, the indoor waterfalls, the ballooning salaries, the locker rooms designed like first-class luxury airliner cabins now look like protruding, tumorous distortions, worthy of recoil and disgust. Institutions have laid themselves bare, with their desperate insistence on trying to make unpaid kids play football in a viral outbreak simply to meet their overextended bills.

              “Schools have spent money recklessly for years,” says attorney Tim Nevius, a former NCAA investigator who is now an advocate for athletes. “Now they’re in a position where if the season doesn’t go forward, they’re on the hook for millions. … There has just been an extraordinary amount of spending on things that have very little resemblance to a university’s mission to educate and develop people.”

              Understand this: These schools don’t have a money problem. They have a shopping addiction. From 2004 to 2018, NCAA revenue exploded from $3 billion to $14 billion thanks largely to media rights, licensing, and sponsorship deals. Yet some schools are so financially distressed that a single canceled football season could be catastrophic. Stanford has cut 11 sports, and Wisconsin informed donors that it could face a $100 million shortfall. Where’d the money go? The answer is, to compulsive spending and gross misallocation. Hundreds of millions disappeared into the pockets of deputy assistant associate athletic directors for administration; conference commissioners for the commission of commissions; and Nick Saban’s corporate-welfare army of “football analysts.”

              The rest went into buildings that look like a Kardashian’s closet. Clemson’s arcade of a football complex includes miniature golf, bowling, laser tag and a movie theater.

                    • <<The Marlins, who had their season suspended for over a week due to a team-wide outbreak, will finish the season playing 27 games in 23 days, a stretch featuring no days off and four doubleheaders in a 10-day span.>>

                      busy boys! (and it can only get worse)

                      • I read that if a majority of NCAA Division 1 teams cancel a sport for the season, then no championship can be held in that sport.

                          Yeah no D2 or D3 championships in any sports and FCS just dropped below the 50%, so only domino left is FBS.

                              The SEC won't go down without a bitter (and I do mean ACRIMONIOUS) fight.

                                Or to Dabo. Health of the players mean nothing to coaches of that ilk (Dabo and SEC coaches) - they are just gladiators to them, using them to make sure they can justify their multi-million dollar salaries.
