A serious outbreak will end the football season. The Corona Virus does not give a damn about TV ratings or corporate profits. Just be glad that you are not one of the players who NCAA is willing to use as guinea pigs in their pursuit of more dollars.

The NCAA does not care about covid19. 19 UF players tested positive this week, approx 20% of their roster, and the game may be postponed but the show will go on.
