Pac-12 student-athletes who choose not to participate in intercollegiate athletics during the coming academic year because of safety concerns about COVID-19 will continue to have their scholarships honored by their university and will remain in good standing with their team.

Pac-12 player group threatens to opt out, makes list of demands on injustice, safety


A group of Pac-12 football players from multiple schools is threatening to opt out of both preseason camps and games until its negotiations with the league regarding concerns about racial injustice, their safety during the coronavirus pandemic and other demands are completed.

A text message obtained says the group's goal is to "obtain a written contract with the Pac- 12 that legally ensures we are offered the following protections and benefits."

The group's list of demands, according to the text message, includes safe play amid the pandemic, fighting racial injustice, securing economic rights and fair compensation, protecting all sports and obtaining long-term health insurance.

People familiar with the group's mission said that the central issue it wants to address with the league and its schools is racial injustice.

The players plan to make a public "statement of unity" and a list of their demands as early as Sunday through traditional and social media.

The Pac-12 said in a statement Saturday that it had yet to hear from the group.

"Neither the Conference nor our university athletics departments have been contacted by this group regarding these topics," a Pac-12 statement said. "We support our student-athletes using their voice,and have regular communications with our student-athletes at many different levels on a range of topics. As we have clearly stated with respect to our fall competition plans, we are, and always will be, directed by medical experts, with the health, safety and well being of our student athletes, coaches and staff always the first priority. We have made it clear that any student athlete who chooses not to return to competition for health or safety reasons will have their scholarship protected."

Ramogi Huma, the founder and president of the College Athletes Players Association, is assisting the players in organizing the potential boycott. Huma, a former linebacker at UCLA, has been an advocate of college athletes' rights.

A staff member at a Pac-12 football program told ESPN that the movement is "real" and involves potentially hundreds of players.

A UCLA player contacted by ESPN said Bruins team leaders planned to meet and discuss the potential boycott Saturday.

A person familiar with the Pac-12 campaign said players from Cal, Oregon, Stanford and UCLA and other schools are involved. The person said at least a few of the league's head coaches were aware of the potential boycott and have independently gauged their teams' involvement, which has varied from campus to campus.

Among the players' concerns are that they are being brought back to campus for practices and games when a handful of Pac-12 schools, including Cal, UCLA and USC, have told most, if not all, of the student body to stay home and take classes online this fall because of the coronavirus pandemic. Stanford is bringing only half of its undergraduates back to campus for the fall quarter.

On Friday, the Pac-12 approved a 10-game, conference-only fall schedule for football that is scheduled to begin on Sept. 26. Each team will play five home and five road games, and the Pac-12 championship is scheduled for no earlier than Dec. 18 or 19. The conference title game will be held on campus and not at the NFL's new stadium in Las Vegas, as previously planned.

Pac-12 commissioner Larry Scott conceded it "may not be possible" to play even a 10-game schedule by Dec. 19 -- or that the spring might be needed to finish it.

"The same thing may happen in other markets," Scott said. "... We recognize that the best-laid plans may not come to fruition, whether being able to start on (Sept.) 26, play a complement of a minimum number of games we feel would be required for a College Football Playoff, and we may start but not be able to finish, and then we will have to adjust."

Half of the league's schools -- Arizona, Arizona State, California, Stanford, UCLA and USC -- are located in states with surging coronavirus cases.

"We realize at the moment, those are real hot spots, and the requisite authorities and approvals are not there yet," Scott said.

With its delayed start to the season, the Pac-12 plans to enter the "enhanced summer access" period as early as Aug. 3, followed by the start of its official training camp as early as Aug. 17.

In this copy of the We Are United's letter to Larry Scott, they request daily Zoom meetings with Pac-12 ADs and Scott until demands are met.

The letter is signed by a player from 11 of 12 Pac-12 schools (not Colorado).

President Trump now pushing for Pac 12 to play:


"There's no reason the Pac 12 shouldn't be playing now."

"You're the only one now. Open up. Open up, Pac 12. You have time. Right now. Get going."

Oregon Governor Kate Brown and the State Health Authority have granted Oregon & OSU's exemption to begin football, pending the submission of a written plan.

Jon Wilner:


Sources: "After speaking to Pac12 commish Larry Scott, Newsom’s office reached out to USC officials. Plan is to fast track revision to controversial 12-person cohort max. That shifts focus to local health, an easier hurdle for the schools."

"This is big."

Nothing but positive came out of yesterday in regards to the Pac-12 NYK all good news let's keep our fingers crossed it's obvious they have been paying attention to what the NFL have been doing in regards to daily testing you see it does pay to watch Hard Knocks LOL college football coming back it's just unfortunate that the division 2 conferences such as the Big Sky that I work in at still maintained their postponing for the spring really sad

Pac 12 and Big Ten are a joke. Big 10 claiming science changed their point of view. Give us all a break. Money and pressure changed your view because nothing has changed in science.

What we are seeing with football is just more and more proof of what we have known for months. It was Never about keeping us safe / saving lives from the virus. it's all about democratic control / doing everything possible to make Trump look bad.

Everything has backfired / blown up in their face (Again). Trump bringing back football to some conferences got him hundreds of thousands of votes for re-election.

Pac-12 football aiming for the season to start on Halloween, but hurdles remain.

County approvals don't mean much if the Pac-12 doesn't agree to a return to play.

Pac-12 CEO Group (which meets tomorrow) has to agree to a return to play and written proposals from the conference have to be approved by OHA.
