Re: Big 10

I would guess USU would take a big loss financially if this happens, but unknown if that loss would be bigger tha...

It is the correct decision. Let's play, let's play until someone gets really sick and possibly dies. Then it's lawsuit after lawsuit and people crying that the conference did not care about the kids.
