That makes sense but it seems that the teams that have outbreaks aren't going to just miss one or even two games. If they have enough players out to cancel a game chances are that by the time they have cleared protocol they are going to have missed two or even three or four. Meanwhile that also means that multiple opponents will have missed at least one game. Even when they don't have positives a team can end up with multiple games cancelled due to having multiple opponents cancel.Not every team needs to play their whole schedule.
As much as I enjoyed watching the Buffs beat UCLA, I still feel that trying to play this year was a poor decision. I hope no other players get debilitating long term effects from these outbreaks.
