Big 10 and Pac 12 will cancel season tomorrow, per the Dan Patrick show. Big 12 and ACC are on the fence, and SEC is trying to get teams to join them for a season.

Dan Patrick says the Big 10 and Pac 12 will cancel their seasons on Tuesday. All but 2 (Iowa and Nebraska) Big 10 Presidents have voted to cancel.

That will be big. I wonder if SEC will step up to NFL.

Looks like the Big 10 has cancelled.

Interesting article and issue. So, while death possible, 3 months to recover from the heart thing is what the article said.

The heart issue comes from the Covid, not football. So, any person or college kid or college athlete who gets covid, has the risk, as small or not-small as it may be.

I wonder how the risk compares to CTE, or to lingering issues from multiple concussions, or from dying on the field from heat exhaustion and various heart conditions, or injuries causing paralysis, or just plain bad injuries that take way longer than 3 months to recover from. Or from dying from an accident driving to school. Heck, I wonder how many college kids die from the flu that they get at college.

Not to minimize anything, but risk should always be quantified, as best as can be done at the time, and put into perspective.

Yet some big time CFB players are begging to play and saying they would be a lot safer in a controlled environment like if a football team versus having no football and kids just running wild.

You and Choate should both read the article; the real risk of COVID-caused myocarditis, which doesn't just go away.

I suspect the risk is less than that of CTE, which is largely swept under the rug because it does not have the political appeal that COVID presents. Neither CTE nor myocarditis are something that just goes away without damage.

Liability is a big issue.

Interesting read...

Interesting, the writer seems to underplay the role of social distancing in Sweden, when its population density is closer to MT than to CA or NY.

Any doubts that most colleges and universities go to remote learning once football is cancelled...

I also believe this will be the final straw that has the P5 schools break from the NCAA.
