Pac-12 commissioner Larry Scott spoke to the San Jose Mercury News today and said there are four scenarios on the table for this season:
- Playing all 12 games as scheduled
- A delayed start
- Conference-only schedules
- Moving the season to the spring
Scott’s view on whether there is a season has changed because of the recent outbreaks of COVID-19.
“I was cautiously optimisti,” Scott said. “But the last couple weeks have changed everyone’s outlook because of the extent to which restarting the economy and loosening restrictions has led to significant outbreaks.
“I still want to be cautiously optimistic, but if there’s no change in society’s response and behavior, which results in a quick flattening of the curve and a decrease in the spread of the virus, that would lead to a much more pessimistic view about our campuses being able to open and our ability to play college sports.”
