Big Ten presidents: Watch us make a disaster out of a decision to play football!
Pac-12 presidents: Hold our beers.
The Pac-12 presidents and chancellors’ unanimous decision last month to postpone all conference sports competition until at least Jan. 1 came after they saw a presentation that included erroneous statistics that overstated the prevalence of COVID-19 in several of the conference’s communities during the first week of August.
The most glaring incorrect metric listed the seven-day average positivity rate for tests in Los Angeles County as 19% — more than three times the 5.49% average listed by the L.A. County Department of Public Health.
It’s times like this that make you realize why they pay Larry Scott the big bucks.
[Ed. note: It should go without saying that this post isn’t an invite to debate COVID stats, so don’t go there.]
