The Big Ten wants everyone to be on the same page a month after they canceled non-conference games without telling anybody.
Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawarence tweeted out:
“People are just as much, if not more risk, if we don’t play. Players will be sent home to their own communities where social distancing is highly unlikely and medical care and expenses will be placed on the families if they were to contract covid19. Not to mention the players coming from situations that are not good for them/their future and having to go back to that. Football is a safe haven for so many people. We are more likely to get the virus in everyday life than playing football. Having a season also incentivizes players being safe and taking all of the right precautions to try to avoid contracting covid because the season/teammates safety is on the line. Without the season, as we’ve already seen, people will not social distance or wear masks and take proper precautions.”
