And maybe the NFL too.

If there is NO college football, do you lay off your staff or do you pay a million or millions to keep them on? That is not an OHIO question but a question for all programs across the country.


Why not the unemployment line? It's not like many other schools could stock pile them and pay them to not coach--everyone would be in the same boat.


News flash, when someone gets laid off they go to the unemployment line.

Here is a video talking about the possibility of football this fall, given by a pulmonary doctor who has been treating a lot of Covid patients. It is specifically focused on Pro Football, but much of what he says is applicable to College Football as well.

There's an article on http://www.northjersey.com (scroll down to sports) that says on July 8 the Ivy League will announce whether they will have any Fall sports.

According to the article they think their decision could be a "bellwether" for other conferences.

As I read the article,the tone seem to imply that they won't be having
sports.

So let's say they don't have fall sports. How can winter sports start workouts in September/October?

I just heard that USC reversed itself,and will not open their campus in the fall,but will do remote learning.

No word yet on how this will impact their sports programs.

Seems like this opens the door for sports programs.

All good - POTUS announced today the "virus is being handled" - and the "virus has a life, a very bad life and we are putting out that life."

I get the feeling it finally is going to simply go away....like miracle. All systems should be go for the fall on campus and sports season. Why would anyone have any doubts or concerns?

That’s interesting, because Cal Poly (SLO) where my daughter teaches, had told faculty earlier that they would have no in-person classes this fall, but are now considering having them, though no decision has been made.

The Division III Ohio Athletic Conference announced sports will begin Sept. 19, meaning no non-conference games for football, volleyball and soccer. They did not make a decision on fans at games yet.

Pretty much every DIII conference has done away with non league football, which is only 1 game in most those leagues.

According to an article on nj.com,the Ivy League will announce on Wed. that all Fall sports,including football,will be moved to Spring.

Comments from the commissioner of the PAC-12 imply there may be issues with Fall football.

PSU's and OSU's AD's seem more positive towards Fall Football.

Just saw the same reports. So if they do that, the three non-conference games they have will put three schools looking for games assuming they play this fall. Yale plays Lehigh, Richmond and Holy Cross for example.

Finebaum has doubts. Raises good point about the economics of "pay games" - he is not one to overreact

You could easily play college athletics all at the same time if you wanted to.

No fans at the Memorial. Fans in the stands is looking less likely this fall. Tomorrow's official Ivy announcement will tell us more.

I think spring football could work at the college level. It doesn't work well professionally because it's not NFL quality and most NFL fans think it's second-rate. But college football is college football. Enough people would watch to make it worthwhile to televise. And the weather in March, April and May is usually a lot nicer than November, so they should get sizeable crowds in the stadiums, if fans are allowed.

Spring football may work for the MAC, CUSA and smaller conferences, but try telling Bama and Clemson and many other big boys that it will be the same. Guessing Trevor Lawrence, Justin Fields, Travis Etienne, Chuba Hubbard and numerous others won't play because the NFL draft will be right around the corner.
