These schools still trying to play football this fall is one of the stupidest things I have seen in a while.
The minute a kid tests positive, its game-off for that team for at least 2 weeks. Schools that try to play might get in 3-4 games.

Not to mention, the testing expenses alone along with loss of money games is unaffordable.
Nope. See my above reply.
Not to mention if you pull the plug early, you lose your leverage in getting paid for those $$ games (either buyout because of broken contract by I-A school, or rescheduled for a future season). Ex JMU will get at least 500k from UNC IF JMU doesn't pull the plug early.
-UNC will either host UCONN or JMU as their OOC. If JMU, JMU gets 500k.
-or the game will be rescheduled for a future season (probably for more than 500K).
-or UNC will have to pay for breaking the contract (I don't believe force majeure would apply since UNC isn't cancelling their season, and I believe the buyout is much higher than $500k).
If JMU pulled the plug with the rest of the CAA in July, JMU gets zero $$$ from UNC. The UNC game would probably pay for the travel cost (3.5 hrs/4+ by bus), probably 1 night hotel if this season as opposed to the usual 2-3 nights), a season of testing, and all the sanitizing & disinfecting steps in the weight, locker, training, meeting rooms, etc.
Also not to mention many of the I-A schools face financial armageddon if they don't get a season in.
