LSU's Infectious Disease Expert Brings Up A Good Point On College Football Players Risk To COVID-19

I could easily put on my infectious disease expert hat on for this blog, but I will restrain myself from doing so. That's because my infectious disease expert hat doesn't exist.

When I saw this quote this morning from LSU's infectious disease expert, my first thought was, "yeah! Let the boys play!" That, of course, is because I am biased. I want the boys to play!

I do believe we often forget the ramifications for a lot of players if the season does not happen. Trevor Lawrence pointed this out in a Twitter thread over the weekend:

The good news is if the season is cancelled, I don't think any campus is going to be sending their players home. It appears the Big Ten is letting players stay on campus and even practice up to 20 hours a week, which I guess means the disease won't infect you as long as you're together for no more than 20 hours a week.

It's wild times in college football right now. We'll keep monitoring it. Do I think a season is going to happen? I'm more confident now than I was over the weekend, but it changes by the second....
