As nice as that is for UVA heading into 2021, it sucks for the athletes


First, we don't even know what college baseball looks like next spring, so the current junior class may be doubly screwed over if the can't showcase themselves next year. Second, it's costing partial scholarship kids tens of thousands of dollars in tuition for next year when they thought they would be getting a signing bonus for hundreds of thousands of dollars and a guarantee for the last year of school. Presumably signing bonuses will be lower next year too since leverage is going way down with that class being in line to graduate and having to compete with the current sophomore class in the draft too. This is a dramatic change to their financial life plans over the next 5+ years.
