Utee,

Same with UNL.  State property.

I'm betting that if the Aggies are playing, the Horns will be playing

It's not really the Aggies, it's the rest of the B12.

I understand, but I think if the SEC plays, the Big 12 will play.

I don't think one really has anything to do with the other.

If the SEC plays, does the B1G play?  Those are just as related.  Arguably moreso, since those are the two conferences that are locked into the financial Arms Race while everyone else can just stand outside and watch.

I think everyone will play except maybe in CA.  I think the season might get stopped before many games are played, however, that is a risk.

I could see an outbreak in a couple places and students start returning home in droves.

There are plenty of arguments being made, now, that it's actually safer to leave students on campus, rather than sending them home to infect their more-at-risk parents.  For a large population of football players, I also believe their access to medical care should they need it, is much better on campus, than it would be at home.

Lots of complexity in any direction we head, of course.

Universities will have full discretion on whether to return June 8 and must also follow state and local health directives concerning group activities.

The SEC has OK'd voluntary workouts starting June 8.

In other news, I paid voluntary taxes to the government this past year!
