    SEC will have football, the others may not. Ivy league definitely not.

    Let's be honest though. Most people don't want to be near others. There is no chance we get packed stadiums unless the virus somehow disapears.

    they just use LOCKDOWN, as its a nice tame cut back word for martial law.

    as you already hinted JJ , it sad, lots of stuff will not be the same. It sucks, but this is what you get.... this is how far they go to get a duely elected president.

    The corona virus was Democrats shiney tool that has now been turned around on them.

    What we will see soon, is MASSIVE ARRESTS!! It will be epic. I know some will not believe me, that is ok, but what you are watching is a movie.

    I think most conferences will cancel the season. The big ones like SEC, Big 10, Big 12 etc could have a season, likely behind closed doors.

    There will absolutely be college football this season and most fans allowed.
    Today the governor of Ohio renewed his Ohio State season tickets and said he fully expects football.
    The SEC will not be scared of putting fans in the stadiums. Most SEC schools are smaller towns that have barely been affected by the virus.
    Its the big cities with high density of people where the issues are. College football barely exists in NYC, Philadelphia, Baltimore, Detroit, New Jersey.
    Who cares if Rutgers plays anyway.
    The pros are where fans need to be limited or none at all.

    If they let students to go back to class on campus they'll let football back then. Big Ten conference and the other four top conferences in NCCA will be a go if they let students back to class.

    Don't want Gophers to cut sports? Then buckle up for big changes


    Mounting revenue loss will force athletic departments to make decisions they fear most. Do they maintain the
    same number of sports but reduce spending ? Or do they make the tough choice of elimination?

    Gophers athletic director Mark Coyle can’t talk about the effect of COVID-19 on his department’s financial health in concrete terms because he can’t see the finish line. He just knows things will be painful.
    Best-case scenario is a $14 million projected loss in revenue in 2020-21. The “moderate” scenario calculates a loss of $30 million if sports return in the fall without fans, or if there is a shortened season.
    Rhonda McFarland, chief financial officer of Gophers athletics, didn’t sugarcoat that scenario Friday when addressing the Board of Regents.
    “There are only a handful of athletic departments that could manage a $30 million loss,” McFarland said.
    Minnesota isn’t one of them.
    They, like just about every other FBS school, desperately need a fall football season with fans in the stands. The “or else” part is a path ADs would rather not explore.
    Asked Friday if his senior staff has had much discussion on whether the department can continue to support 25 sports considering revenue losses, Coyle didn’t say yes or no. He emphasized the success of his broad-based program but left the door open to any possibility.
    “There’s no doubt that everything is on the table,” Coyle said.
    No AD wants to cut sports. That draconian measure already has started elsewhere with Cincinnati dropping men’s soccer and Old Dominion eliminating wrestling because of the pandemic. They won’t be alone, especially if the football season gets disrupted.


    This crisis seems to shift by the day, so predicting with any certainty how things will look by June even is nearly impossible. And with 130 FBS schools spread over 10 conferences, plus independents, we’ll see schools opening for business on different time lines. We can talk ourselves in circles going over every possible football scenario.
    What’s clear though is that mounting revenue loss will force athletic departments to make the decisions they fear the most. Do they maintain their same number of sports but reduce spending by squeezing budgets across the board? Or do they make the tough choice of eliminating some nonrevenue sports?
    For now, Coyle’s plan is to cut costs by enacting pay reductions and budget trims of 10% to 15% per sport, among other measures. And every program should make sacrifices. But this gets tricky for Coyle because football is a cash cow that supports other sports. The Gophers can’t afford to weaken that operation, considering all the momentum P.J. Fleck has generated with an 11-win season, recruiting successes and the program’s growth potential as a revenue source.
    How football goes, so go Coyle’s budget and budget decisions.
    In all college sports, scheduling and travel will change. The Gophers spend $2.6 million more now on team travel annually compared to 2012. Some of that is unavoidable. Traveling is generally more expensive, the Big Ten’s footprint expanded with the addition of Rutgers and Maryland and the move to Big Ten hockey brought added costs.
    However, the days of sending the softball team to Hawaii for nonconference games might be over, for now at least.
    This season, the softball team — with travel expenses of $450,000 — made road trips to Florida (twice), Texas, Alabama, California and Hawaii. The program reported operating revenue of $177,000 in the 2019 fiscal year.
    The men’s tennis team traveled to Florida, California, Massachusetts. The women’s soccer team played road matches in California, Mississippi and Virginia.
    Scheduling more regional opponents in nonconference is a logical step. Teams also could bus instead of fly when possible. Or schedule fewer games.
    The NCAA requires a minimum number of games each team must play to count as a sponsored sport. For instance, the minimum for baseball and softball is 27. Soccer is 11.
    The Gophers softball team had played 25 nonconference games before the season was shut down. They had 54 regular-season games scheduled, counting Big Ten season. Trimming the schedule to lower expenses is a reasonable compromise.
    Coaches will argue that playing a full, competitive schedule helps recruiting and in building a successful program. No one would deny that under normal circumstances. Schools are not operating under normal parameters.
    This financial punch will be substantial. Don’t think the U should cut sports? Then you should root for the Gophers to rewrite today’s rules about how their 25 teams operate.

    What is certain is that college football will NOT be the same in 2020 as it was in 2019 and as it will be in 2021. N o one really has a clue as to what will happen as of yet. One thing to watch. With states "opening up", check the increase in COVID-19 cases. If it is high, as some predict, then the Pac 12 will certainly not open on time, if at all. Oregon has already said that all games should and probably will be canceled until September. The Big 10 will have major problems getting their teams ready by September. The Southern States do not have a lot to offer so they may try anything to save their states from losing more money.

    I read that college football will proceed as usual this fall, but that there will be penalties for social distancing violations. Players are now required to make tackles using telekinetic energy, lest they be flagged for 15 yards and ejected for the remainder of the game. I'm looking forward to it.
