Re: Gary Andersen on 1280/97.5 The Zone today

I would think that instead of just playing conference games they would set a starting date at say 10-1 so as to protect indy schools.

USU is and will bleed money if the football season does not start on time.

Re: Why not postpone vs cancel

You would have reschedule all the conference tournaments, than reschedule all the venues that the NCAA had lined up, then all the players would need to get back into playing shape. That would not even start until a month or so to see the infected numbers go down. It is not going to happen.
