I honestly feel for Greg McGarity here.
I’d be frustrated, too. But what can you do when you’ve got a commissioner saying something like this?
As the Power 5 conferences continue to navigate the return of fall sports amid the coronavirus pandemic, and more decisions could be made this week about what that might look like for college football, it’s plausible each league’s plan is ultimately different — and Big 12 commissioner Bob Bowlsby told ESPN on Monday that can work.
“They can’t be incompatible,” Bowlsby said, “but they don’t have to be identical.”
Thanks for narrowing that down, Bob.
Translated from the original commissioner-ese, all that tells me is the suits are going to get some games in, come hell or high water, and worry about the consequences later. That’s got to be a tremendous comfort for folks like McGarity, who get to face the impatience of their fan base while trying to make sense of a season.
