  • Is the season going to happen and if so when?

    Wonder if the scouts will be able to assess these guys well?

    Sounds like the big D1 conferences are going to give it a go within their conference.

    I think D2’s in certain conferences have cancelled (see Central wash)
    While other D2 teams (Montana schools etc) are going to give it a go.

    I think the local D3 schools have postponed their season until spring and are going with a possible shortened 4 game season in the spring.

    A lot of the above may change as the Covid conditions change.
    I don’t think anything is written in stone.

    Yep, according to Dan Patrick. Actually, it sounds like they are throwing in the towel for the entire season, not just fall.

    "The Big Ten and Pac-12 Conferences will cancel their college football seasons on Tuesday due to the pandemic, according to a report from Dan Patrick. The Big Ten's university presidents and chancellors held a previously unscheduled meeting on Sunday night to vote, according to The Associated Press.2 hours ago"

  • I think they will push to Spring once they get the plan in place.

    Way too much money involved not to. But that means relying on TV money and other investments as its likely stadiums won't be full.

    You would think but I was just hearing on the news that ALL college football may be cancelled as the Power-5 schools are discussing that right now.

    What a year.

    But just for the Fall... at the moment. The verbiage is rather ambiguous.

    They need football but it has to be profitable, and cannot come at the expense of other sports.

    Doesn't help that so many athletes are now opting our and challenging the NCAA on social issues.

    They're in trouble. Status quo in jeopardy

  • The Detroit Free Press said Big 10 was cancelled. Patrick said Pac 12 would be and I think that's also true.

    I haven't heard of one major university in California even bringing its students back full-time. It's either all online or largely online for undergraduates, so how you expect them to play games when no one else has to even be on campus, I predict, won't really fly.

    Well for one thing, no one has to be on campus if it is a TV only game. I think the plan is to see what spring looks like before officially cancelling that too. But who knows, it's confusing and very fluid.

    Liability is the issue, not safety. Notes from Big 10 meeting indicate many believe the kids are safer with their teams.

    There will be much work put in to resolve the liability issue. SEC exploring that now.

    Okay, wasn't thinking about that initially but it's risk mgmt on steroids. Given that orgs typically err on the side of caution something is going to have to change before this goes forth.

    Indemnity agreements aren't always ironclad.

    I kind of like a break from the hype and greed
    that has gotten ahold of college football it's
    not the same game anymore.
    Maybe they can focus more on their education.
