Which means games will inadvertently be canceled because there is too much fear in Universities across the country to mandate student-athletes get vaccinated.

#FAU's @CoachTaggart: "We've been working on (#UF) since Spring Ball. We've been introduced to the things that they like to do. But at the end of the day, we have to be good at what we do...
