So Big12 came out with their rules on cancelling a conference game: roster of 53 (scholarship and non-scholarship) and a few position minimums (1 QB, 7 OL, and 4 DL.).

With over 100 guys on the team and multiple back-up positions, unless you got very hard hit with a round of COV, looks like the games will go on and in some cases you could be severely short-handed from your normal 2 deep.

Well, somewhere in the fine print is how do you determine who is "available".

If you have, say 2 positives with one being your start RB, can you quarantine your entire team and thus claim you don't meet the 53 min ?

Lots of gamesmanship for this season.

(HOWEVER)................................

Cut/Paste from official Big 12 website:

https://big12sports.com/news/2020/9/4/big-12-football-game-cancellation-thresholds-established.aspx

The Big 12 Conference announced its football game cancellation thresholds. The minimum number of players required to play a game has been set at 53. The number is based on the entire roster, including all scholarship and walk-on players.

Additional minimum thresholds of available players were also established for offensive linemen (7), interior defensive linemen (4) and quarterback (1). Teams falling below any of these benchmarks, based on game week test results, could still elect to play as scheduled if so desired. Otherwise, upon approval by the Commissioner, the game would be declared a no-contest if it cannot be moved to a later date.

The Conference’s “9+1” 2020 schedule features a full round-robin among Big 12 teams, plus one non-conference game. The schedule provides each team with two bye dates, plus the option to move the Dr Pepper Big 12 Championship back one week to December 19 if needed. Open dates will be used for rescheduling games in the event a team does not have enough players to compete.

The non-conference portion of the Big 12 schedule kicks off next weekend, with Conference play beginning September 26th.

Wonder what the deadline is for declaring that you don't have enough players ? Can you do it inside of 2 weeks (i.e. 15 day quarantine ?) Can you do it 24 hr before the game ? Up to kick off ?
