Will college football work in a pandemic? College itself in some places isn’t.
A day after North Carolina threw in the towel on in-person classes for the fall semester, a problem has come to light on the Notre Dame campus.
The school has attributed many of the cases to an off-campus party attended by students who didn’t wear face coverings or practice social distancing. Notre Dame has not yet abandoned its plan to conduct in-person classes.
It seems inevitable that more major universities will eliminate or limit in-person classes. And that will make the decision to press forward with college football despite, on some campuses, no actual college even more obviously a grab for the cash that comes from playing the games.
