SMU athletes will have to sign coronavirus waivers when returning to campus for voluntary activities.

According to Sam Blum of DallasNews.com, the waivers release SMU from “future liability” stemming from coronavirus. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

You can read a copy of the waiver below.

As I said after news broke about Ohio State doing this for athletes, I expected us to see other programs have players sign waivers.

It’s just the nature of the beast in 2020 as we gear up for football during the coronavirus pandemic.

Would I sign one of these waivers? I’m honestly not sure because I don’t really know the implications of releasing SMU from all “future liability.”

That seems like something players would have to discuss with their parents and possibly a lawyer.

Here’s what I do know. We’re going to have football in the fall. There might be some changes along the way, but the games are 100% happening.

You can take that to the bank.
