If a football team or teams can’t play a game because of COVID. The school that was able to play can submit a reimbursement request for financial losses, which would likely be due to losing a home game or travel expenses they can’t get back.
And if both teams can’t play, they can BOTH be hit with forfeits.
Greg Sankey can declare no-contest in exceptional circumstances, but it’s clear he expects people to get vaccinated and play and will ding schools if they can’t.
I bet most teams are close to fully vaccinated. We are. OM has hit 100%. I bet Alabama it close, too, because Saban has been pushing the vaccinations in Alabama. There might be some out there who are below 70% or so, but I can’t imagine who it’d be.
Yes, it was and our guys were pumped and ready to play.
Perhaps the $$$ hit and the automatic forfeiture will get their attention. Hit in the pocketbook and watch the numbers climb in all sports. I wish they would have thought of this sooner.
