  To Morehouse College President David Thomas, the math just didn't make sense. In order for the private, historically black university in Atlanta to play football safely this fall, Thomas believed, it would need coronavirus safety policies similar to those adopted by the NBA, with all players getting tested multiple teams each week while living in a 'bubble' environment, walled off from the outside world. The tests would cost millions the school doesn't have, Thomas said, and bubbling college students is practically impossible.

And while football is an important part of the campus experience at Morehouse, the Maroon Tigers play in Division II, without the lucrative television contracts and massive stadiums that make Division I teams such as Alabama, Clemson and Florida the financial lifeblood of surrounding regions. So, last week, Thomas announced the cancellation of Morehouse's fall sports - football and cross-country - a decision that drew more attention across college sports than perhaps anything the Maroon Tigers have done on the field. Morehouse is one of four schools with NCAA sports that have canceled their fall seasons, along with Bowdoin, Williams College and UMass-Boston. - Washington Post
