This is so stupid. Coaches should absolutely revolt against Sankey. I like Sankey a lot, and he made a lot of great decisions prior to the season starting.
In fact, I’d argue that he had the best response in all of college football to the coronavirus pandemic.
However, fining coaches over masks is absurdly stupid.
Sankey does know these guys are in the locker room with players not wearing masks at all, right? Somebody made sure Sankey knew that before issuing his decrees?
I’m all for being smart, but this is next level dumb from Sankey. If the players aren’t wearing masks, then the coaches shouldn’t have to either.
