    There will be in the SEC. I don't know about the rest of the conferences. Maybe they should just sit at home an watch the big boys play.

    I love college football, but I don’t think their will be a season this year, unfortunately.

    If the political nonsense makes it onto the field, I'll be done with this as well.

    They're talking about moving football season to the spring.

    The only approach that seems to be working is the bubble approach...

    Either do this, give up, or accept a covid fest, and if a few fatass lineman die, oh well.... Those are your options.

    This is probably the sane approach...
    There are some very promising new therapeutics, and even the possibility of a vaccine that will be available by then

    I doubt there will be a 2020 season.

    Whatever bubble Rutgers used didn't work. I suspect any conferences that decide to play in 2020 will see the same thing eventually.

    If it were not for all the $$$$$$$$ they would have canceled all college football already. Playing next spring and then again next fall does not make much sense. If I were king and money no object here is what I would do:

    - Cancel this year
    - Let everyone keep their scholarship
    - Make everyone eligible for next year's NFL draft.
    - If they don't get drafted, or if they are not signed by an NFL team let them maintain their college eligibility.
    - expand the number of scholarships allowed to account for those who would otherwise not been returning for 2021 regular season

    I hope not. It’s just a breeding ground for the professional thug leagues.

    Thank you. It really sucks if it gets canceled because this may be the best team we have ever had

    One can only hope, all the seasons are cancelled. Maybe colleges can focus on their secondary goals for a short bit. You know, like education.

    Colleges haven’t educated in decades. They are now in the business of indoctrination.
