SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Over the weekend, Pac-12 players teamed up to pen a letter to the conference with a list of wants and demands with the possibility of players boycotting or sitting out this year.

Some players feel their needs are not being met, specifically during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Some of the things they are asking for aren’t pandemic related. This letter could be the beginning of long-term change within the Pac-12 for student-athletes.

From the bullet points of the letter, the main theme is that players want to be treated fairly and they don’t currently believe that is the case.
