    Makes sense. You cant have fall sports teams on campus practicing if the rest of the students aren't allowed to be on campus.

    Coaches should be in contact with their student athletes, giving them exercises to do so they will be in shape when they are allowed on campus. Showing up in shape should reduce the number of practice days needed. Even learning the playbook should not be that hard...these ARE STUDENT athletes.

    All schools would be on the same footing, with just 1-2 weeks of practice and learning the 'system' that the coaching staff has.
    It's not funny.

    All sports are considered off season now, so there are guidelines to be followed. Any good student-athlete will be motivated to do their work on their own, but all workouts and direction given out by coaches have to be considered voluntary.

    NCAA and WCC rules that are effective April 20, 2020:
    All sports are considered to be out of season now.
    All sports are permitted to require up to 8 hours/week of virtual nonphysical countable activities, like Zoom team meetings about play books.
    Countable Athletically Related Activities (CARA) is prohibited from one week before the start of final exams through the end of the term for all sports.
    All sports are required to provide one day off per week from these virtual nonphysical activities.
    It's not permissible to conduct virtual physical countable athletically related activity, but again, coaches can provide voluntary guides to their athletes.

    All true, but when the teams show up, if you aren't in shape and your competition for that spot is...you sit.

    Especially true with this program. Anybody 1 to 12 on the bench (esp. this year) can start and play major minutes. There's that much talent, we're backloaded with it right now. It's in the players best interest to remain ahead of his peers.

    No question! Any athletes that don't want to do the voluntary work shouldn't be college athletes in my opinion.

    I think the teams that are closest will be good about keeping each other motivated too.
