I believe the minimum is 13. If that's right, there's plenty to trim. EZU has 20.

Per the article posted earlier in the thread:

Quote:Per the NCAA, an institution classified in the FBS (Football Bowl Subdivision) must fund at least 16 sports.

Have to wonder if the NCAA will drop that number. A lot of FBS schools are going to be in trouble if college football suffers heavy losses. Which seems destined to happen; the season probably will still happen, but the first several weeks will likely be in front of no fans.

There will be a lot of pressure to have fans in the stands so I doubt they'll be empty. Health experts will magically find that there is little risk in outdoor arenas when college football starts.

It's indeed true that outdoors are safe in nearly all circumstances. At least 2/3 of COVID cases got it indoors. And you have to inhale the virus, it doesn't even seem like people are catching this thing by getting it on their hands.

That being said, yelling/shouting increases the risk of someone inhaling the virus, so that has to be factored in a bit.

Money talks, BS walks. That's all that will be factored in. They are not going to tank the athletic departments around the country over this. The medical experts are going to come around all of the sudden. Mark my words.

I could see that happening. Despite the lockdown, the California governor already stated pro sports are going to happen, to the surprise of many.

If Cali does it, everyone else will, they would be the last ones to do it i'd have expected
