Having 28 players with coronavirus is just a brutal number to stomach. Add in 14 staff members, and you have a complete disaster on your hands.
Seeing as how the program has 42 cases, I’m not sure Baylor had any other choice.
This has to be the worst outbreak we’ve seen in major college football since the season started. There might be some smaller schools that have had it worse, but there’s nobody that comes to mind in the P5.
Baylor needs to keep the infected players far away
