‘Momentum Growing’ for Eight-Game MACtion

What do you know, right after we get official news Big Ten is returning and news that the wheels are in motion for a Pac-12 football return, MACtion is on the clock. Brett McMurphy followed up on a report from the Toledo Blade:

Pat Forde implies it needs to escalate from the athletic directors to the university presidents:

Power-five conferences have better resources to handle the volume of Covid-19 testing and other safety protocols necessary to do a season than do mid-major conferences. Who knows what percent chance we could put on all this, but the way momentum has been building over the past couple weeks for football seasons previously thought to be dead, it’s definitely a situation that warrants monitoring.

  1. I love watching MACtion. I’m afraid the cost of testing is going to keep the MAC (legitimately) out of the 2020 season. Rapid testing is the key for all the conferences to making it work.

    The tests may not be that expensive, I don’t know. That is something to keep in mind.

    I hope MAC can get it going!
