You can now add Baylor to the list of schools impacted by the virus. It seems like with every passing day, we have another major program that has athletes with the virus.

It’s just the reality of where we are in 2020. Many programs are going to have athletes test positive and there’s no way to get around it.

The good news is that these universities should be more than prepared to handle the pandemic. They’ve had months and months to prepare.

From the sounds of it, Baylor was ready. The players are in isolation and it shouldn’t be a huge problem going forward.

As long as the schools can keep players safe, there’s nothing to worry about. As I’ve said many times, we’re not shutting down football just because some athletes get coronavirus. That’s just not going to happen.
