This is helpful information and both my local papers covered it nicely today. The one detail they went into that the above does not is the subject of fan attendance. According to these local articles, the attendance will be capped off at 250 as of the moment for both indoor and outdoor activities. So unless there is a change in the governor's mandates, that will mean even football will be limited to that amount. As previously discussed, the staff and essential personnel have to be counted first so that leaves very little room for real "spectators" to attend. As one AD put it "sports will be by invitation only." However they did mention some creative ideas that are being discussed such as live streaming and playing JV and Varsity games in separate gyms in those places that are lucky enough to have two. Buckle up folks......our bumpy ride is going to continue!
