On the Cal Bears podcast with Michael:
#1 Pac 12 players have said that in their discussions with Pac 12 Commissioner Larry Scott regarding Covid-19 safety issues and stronger protection status said Scott had not offered any concrete mandates.
#2 Over the weekend Pac 12 players said they will opt out for this season if the following is not instituted out of concern for safety issues, continuous Covid-19 testing and the protection of players eligibility status that choose to opt out due to safety reasons.
#3 In the NFL close to 70 players have already opted out will that be kind of signal for college players that opting out might be the choice to make based on all the safety data and all the latest news
#4 The players had a statement through The Players Tribune which outlined the players needs before the start of the season, the players also said that Scott was “condescending, unprepared and unwilling” to meet with them again and that Scott said the players could go meet with conference’s medical advisory board.
#5 There were a combined number of Cal and Stanford players involved in the negotiations with the Pac 12 up to at least 15 players from both schools but after seeing how Scott handled his last meeting with the players do you see a number of players coming on board to opt out and joining in to be more vocal for their demands?
