Not for me to decide. It's their decision and they can present it however they want. What I do know is they have obligations to the conference members an students/athletes alike.

The right choice was made for both health/safety and finance/economics.

I concur. Getting mad about it does nothing. Let the admins admin. Get over it and prepare for the next time the Huskies hit the field.

Go Huskies.

On the bright side, since the other guys are canceling their seasons, we don’t have to worry about our players being poached.[/quote]

+1. The cost of testing and trying to keep every athlete safe was just too prohibitive. Add in the cost of potential litigation and it becomes a no brainer. I doubt we see enough improvement in the Spring. Hopefully, vaccines, continued improvements in treatment, and common sense by all combine to allow athletics to restart in Fall 2021.

The MAC needs the BIG 10 so they fell in line and played it safe.

Too quick to cancel. Frazier is the Director of Athletics however he was in quite a hurry to NOT direct athletics. There was no reason for the MAC to be first. The MAC is headed to FCS status. Embarassing attendance, low student interest, a slew of sports cuts are coming. With all the collateral damage, I wish Frazier would have waited it out instead of pushing the MAC.

We had no pay games. Why wait?

I concur. No paid games, less kids on campus to pay the athletic fees. Wrap it up and move on to next season.

The results of this poll show that there is a loud minority that sometimes seems bigger than they actually are.
