    At least in pro sports someone is representing the player's interests. Not so in college sports. The players are more or less having to do it on their own. It's definitely not like the NFL, which has serious questions of it's own, but the players have agents and a union.

    Arizona State gets top 2021 commit in cornerback Isaiah Johnson

    By Michelle Gardner Arizona Republic:


    The Arizona State football program has landed its most noteworthy recruit of the 2021 cycle thus far with four-star cornerback Isaiah Johnson out of St. Bernard in Playa Del Ray, California, announcing his pledge on social media late Monday.

    It was quite a get for the Sun Devils with the other schools in Johnson's top five being national contenders Georgia, Oklahoma, LSU and USC.

    I think you are right. The demands for COVID 19 protections are more than the PAC12 can handle. Apparently, 8 UCLA players have tested positive.

    Throw on the monetary issues, during a huge economic downturn, and this is going to be a real mess. It ain't going away though.
    The football program incomes have been used to fund so many other sports. Take the fans out of the stands during the pandemic, I guess there is still TV revenue. I am no financial wizard, but I am not sure whether the monetary demands can be met at this time. I just hope something can be worked out because I would love to see some football at some point.

    The players have all the leverage. What are they going to lose if there is no season? It won't be their scholarships. The universities have to cave on a good amount of this stuff or there is no season at all. And, not even TV money.

    And, the players have figured out how to unite en masse. That isn't going away.

    My prediction? College football fist, (and others will follow), is basically going to become semi-pro. Players will be paid, it's inevitable. I also think being enrolled in a degree program will be optional for players.

    Underwater earthquake that will cause a tsunami. It is huge but players right now will likely not see the bulk of the benefits

    PAC had voted to cancel football for fall. May play in spring.

    Stupid!

    Imo those kids are safer in that “college bubble” with their teammates than likely anywhere else. The testing, the thorough cleaning & heavy precautions make them safer. If kids want to play, give them that choice!!!

    The spring season is even more dumb!!! So these schools are expecting 20+ games to be played in a calendar year? Lol. Yeah that’s safe :bang:. I Hope Nebraska thumps their nose at the Big10 & returns to the Big12 where it belongs.

    It's the right choice whether you or I agree with it. Better to err on the side of caution... especially with potential lawsuits that could bankrupt even the most solvent athletic department.

    Nebraska can be .500 or below elsewhere for all I care. Good luck putting together a schedule at this point. Frost should have kept quiet.

    No matter...i am bummed since I had high hopes for ASU this year.

    I still say the players should be given a choice. I’m tired of government trying to tell me what I can/can’t do. There are risks in almost everything. But yeah, you can protest & riot lol

    Maybe this goes deeper. Maybe the conferences didn’t want to give the players a say at the table given the fact they wanted revenue, insurance, etc. hmmmm.

    It’s these stances that continue to drive the need for closures. Because so many won’t take the short term pain of wearing masks, staying put, etc the virus will continue to ebb and flow causing shutdown after shutdown. Im astounded so many don’t understand this needs an all-in concerted push to get us back to almost fully open - which we all want.
