Entire Rutgers Team Will Quarantine For 14 Days After 15 Players Test Positive For COVID-19, On Campus Party Players Attended Likely To Blame

It's easy to make fun of Rutgers. I do it all the time. It's especially easy to make fun of Rutgers in this situation due to the urban legend that the school has it's own STD strain (allegedly). 

All that being said, this unfortunately shows the issues the 2020 college football season faces. College kids are going to party, it's what they do. Even the nerds party in college. Coaches may beg their players to sit out partying for the next 4+ months, but you know what? It's not going to happen. 

What's the solution? I don't have the answers, sway! I don't! It's easy to shame the 19-year-old kid for going to a party during a global pandemic, but I would've done the same.

We saw this week in the MLB that when one team has to quarantine, business continues throughout the league. Can we do the same in college football? If Rutgers has an outbreak in the middle of the season, does that affect the rest of the Big Ten? What about the SEC? We saw last week that Michigan State is quarantining their entire team for 14 days due to a mini-outbreak. Would the Big Ten just adjust like the MLB did if this was say October? I guess we'll have to wait and see...if there's a season at all.
