The University of Connecticut has announced it's canceling its 2020 college football season over the COVID-19 pandemic making them the first major college program to do so...

"After receiving guidance from state and public health officials and consulting with football student-athletes, we've decided that we will not compete on the gridiron this season," UConn athletic director David Benedict said in a statement.

"The safety challenges created by COVID-19 place our football student-athletes at an unacceptable risk."

"Ultimately, the student-athletes would rather preserve their year of eligibility with an eye to competing under more typical circumstances during the 2021 season."

They won't survive as a FBS Independent. They were going to end up dropping the program or moving down to FCS anyway. This isn't just because of Rona.

So, instead of playing football. They'll be grinding on Instagram sluts at bars/parties. Because of risks of contracting a respiratory virus. The world is idiotic.
