Yes, ODU was the only conference team to cancel football but, it seems erroneous that you have not tried to cancel the women basketball, early in the season. The women have a losing record and have played 4 games in OT. One game they only had four players playing in OT, like four against five. I would have thought you would have at least tried early on to cancel their season, since they having been playing with 7 player's most of the year. Even a call to the commissioner, would resolve this issue. W&M women cancelled their remaining season. I know fans like the ladies monarchs, but playing under those conditions, doesn't make the AD look good, in having these women struggle. Wood, you cancelled football.

I Imagine the ladies could cancel the season if they wanted to. They probably want to stick it out.

Correct. Each student-athlete and coach has the right to opt-out if they do not feel safe. The fact that they are still playing states that the coaching staff and student-athletes want to continue with their season. In regards to football, you will not find a single coach who has stated (publicly or privately) they thought opting out was a bad idea. You can take that as you will, and I know nobody is going to change their opinions. I just find interesting of people's differing perspectives sport to sport.

Again, I use the example of I don't hear anyone complaining about Duke WBB opting out while MBB continues on. Why were the conditions so much more "unsafe" on the WBB side vs. the MBB side? Why are we so opposed of our WBB wanting to continue to play their season, but it's unacceptable that FB wanted to opt-out?

WBB teams usually have more players (15 schoolies), travel more often on commercial flights, also women might be a little more risk adverse. Might be some of the reasons more WBB teams are opting out

P5 women’s teams (like Duke) are not flying commercial.

Outside of the Ivy League only 2 men’s programs have opted out. And outside of Duke, I don’t know of any women’s teams that have opted out

There's been five non-Ivy men's programs to tap out on the season, with Maine and Howard shutting down last season to join Maryland-Eastern Shore, Chicago State and Bethune-Cookman. There's been 16 non-Ivy women's teams to opt out, most notably Virginia, Vanderbilt, SMU and the aforementioned Duke. Unless I'm misunderstanding the statement?

You don’t understand what I said when I stated “outside of Duke I don’t know if any women’s teams that have opted out?”

Pretty sure I literally said Duke is the only school that I know that opted out.

However, the 4 schools you mentioned are all schools that charter.
