College Football in 2020 in danger?

Recommended Posts

It is still too early for the talking heads to start talking about canceling football. That shit is not helpful right now.

one of my friends is a current Big12 AD as of last Saturday he was not optimistic 

I don't think any school is going to put 70 to 100K people in football stands until there is a vaccine.  I also think there will be vaccine sooner than anyone expects.

If "sooner than anyone expects" is in time for the start of football season, you're wrong. If it's sometime before 2021, I really hope that you're right.

Based on nothing but a hunch, I believe we are vaccinating by early Fall by striking a balance somewhere between the risk to those vaccinated and reward to society.  Certainly not in time for football in 2020.

I think we're staring at a conference-only season beginning in January for both football and basketball.

Of course, I'm one of the guys who paid his LHF dues and renewed the season tickets in late January just as this whole thing was gaining momentum.

I think you mean getting paid millions to not coach a hame

This is a confounding sentence if you have skipped to the last page of a thread you've never opened before. It took me thirty seconds to figure out it was just a typo.

I spent that half minute wondering if I'd missed the birth of a new football term. Or maybe there was a family of Hames and some coach was failing one of them. Ah, failure to capitalize isn't the problem here: just a missed key on the keyboard. Hmmm. Not fame. Not lame, Not home, Hume, or hare. Context, Roma! Context!

I thought I'd share a moment of idiocy from the Covidbunker. Obviously, it should read, not coach a hammer. I feel dumb as a bag of games.

Okay, now back to watch the persons with intellectual development defects romp with large predatory animals.

I could be wrong, and I hope I am, but I think that timeline is very optimistic even under those conditions.

I do think we'll probably be looking at January football at the earliest, in my very non-scientific opinion.

Yeah I hope so too but all of that is empty promises. We really packing 100,000 people in stadiums when we don’t have a vaccine? I’m not sure

So start putting thousands of people together in stadiums at the height of flu season instead of warmer (or hotter than the surface of a thousands suns in the south) months when viruses arent likely to surive long on outdoor surfaces? To me it seems if we dont start the season by October at least..we wont have CFB until the following August.

Yeah I don't really think it'll happen in January either, or that it makes much sense. That's just what is apparently being kicked around.

I’ve got a really fantastic bridge I think you’d be interested in.
