Big 12 commissioner not on same page as Mark Emmert, rest of NCAA

Unclear Agreement

College football (and other college sports) can’t be played if college campuses aren’t open, Mark Emmert said on Friday. “[A]ll of the commissioners and every president that I’ve talked to is in clear agreement: If you don’t have students on campus, you don’t have student-athletes on campus.”

On Thursday, Big 12 commissioner Bob Bowlsby said online classes would satisfy “the school in session requirement.” On Friday, Bowlsby repeated himself, saying in-person classes are not required for on-campus athletic events.
