I question how many players would head to the NFL if the 2020 seasons are cancelled. The NFL would have to draft 2 college classes of unproven NFL talent between two seasons, and the second class wouldn't have played or really practiced a down of football in 1.5 years. I guess they could temporarily expand the roster sizes or something, but it'd still be a gamble for most to get an NFL spot after such a break from college.

The same people who think it's no concern are the ones who could ensure the fall sports are cancelled by throwing parties, licking toilets, and purposely coughing at others. People can debate all the testing, total cases, and death rate all they want, but it's a fact that it can shut down everything until further notice.

There should be massive concerns if we aren't at least returning to normal before the season starts. I think a better question is how soon will the NCAA have to decide? Teams obviously need to practice and prepare beforehand. Would they play a season with very limited practice, or would that be considered dangerous?

Wish him the best, and hope wherever he goes next maintains his mental health. Odd and disappointing our program loses players with some frequency. 
 

CJ Walker became quite the player as the season ended, looking forward to seeing that all next year

Sucks for the seniors across all the canceled sports, but not much you can do. Would be cool if some sort of TBT-style tourney is worked out for all the seniors, but the logistics and players headed to the pro-leagues might prevent that.

For some reason I thought Walker was on his last year - will be nice to have him back next year with how he played this past month.

Not a clue, would be interesting to find out. There are quite a few students, especially international, who have to live on campus and rely on the meal plans. Maybe they're just trying to reduce it a bare minimum of people on campus, since there is no easy solution to keep everyone away and isolated.

Maybe an overreaction but it’s far better to be proactive than reactive, especially with all the idiots out there. 

Plenty of people are coming in from highly infected areas and going around spreading it after not being screened and not staying home. Just in Atlanta less than two weeks ago there was a single guy who returned from Italy and now it’s up to almost 30 confirmed cases in the city - not all directly related, but still. And just yesterday it was found out a grade school and high school teacher had it while at school, so they’ve cancelled school for at least a day. Sure, the kids are unlikely to be in danger, but they go home and spread it to a more at-risk population, who then go to work and spread it some more.
