    I said before, these guys aren't paid, only a select few have an NFL shot.
    There is no incentive esp. when your health is a stake!

    But football players wana get laid so there's that part too
    Well I guess my big picture was, you can't use the university as an exclusive sporting facility that gives preference and access to athletes and not students.

    IE Joe the jock can go workout and play games on campus but Patti the protestor can't use the University library?

    The money earned is what justifies it in the universities and conferences eyes.

    If not for the money, the season would've been scrapped by now at each of the power 5 schools

    This is becoming a joke. Schools moving games up to the week of August 29th. Schools moving games back to mid or late September. No one knows what the hell they are doing.

    This is the biggest reason why college sports are destined to fail

    No way to stop players from going to parties

    The Biggest Reason why Covid-19 is running rampant is because not only are today's Teenagers STUPID, TV is just as STUPID showing all of these commercials wit people partying and wearing no masks at all Bottom line. This country is f**king brain dead and getting worse by the minute.

    I dunno... I think you guys are planting the tombstone a bit prematuring.

    I'm thinking we're gonna have some semblance of college football this year.

    Then why are AD's working overtime to concoct a schedule to accommodate the "new normal" of Corona culture when they could easily just pull the plug on the season now, or, even easier, say nothing at all? They are obviously working towards something. It will be compromised, but it beats having nothing at all.

    Because there is too much money at stake. It's not realistic though.

    But if it weren't realistic, they'd be resigned to the fact and put the kibosh on things. It's not like they're obligated to lip service the public. They're brainstorming strategies because they're genuinely trying to make it happen. I mean I have my doubts too, but I think odds are more favorable than the "slim and none" mood of this thread.

    I get that, but what difference does it make to us fans whether their motivations are "pure" or mercenary? None. They are striving towards an amended season is the point. I give it greater odds of happening than "a snowball's chance in hell" which seems to be the common thought.

    It has a greater chance than a snowball chance on Georgia asphalt right now.

    Eddie I can tell you love CFB and so do i, it is without question my favorite sport, but without a bubble it cannot survive more than 3 or 4 games realistically, and having a bubble is simply too expensive for 90% of the schools and I doubt the conferences would want to pay for it either.

    NO ONE, including you people who think you know it all and know very little, if anyting at all about wagering in general and College Football specifically, can predict what will happen. Homie claims to be the biggest Pac 12 Football fan around, yet I have forgotten more about Pac 12 Football than he has ever known. Just kick back and relax and see what develops. You guys should be happy if the season gets canned. You will not lose as much money this year as you usually do.

    BigDaddy just a month or so ago you said NO COLLEGE FOOTBALL but now you are saying no one knows but you know?? flip flop much??

    you cannot make this stuff up!!!

    here's the truth: NO BUBBLE = NO COLLEGE FOOTBALL. no chance it can survive a 10 game season or whatever.

    tops 3 games max per team if No Bubble

    There will be no FCS this year, expect all to cancel within the next two weeks.

    Then we can move onto FBS teams shutting it down one by one, starting out in the liberal cess pool states

    The first closure should be the sh!thole conservative state of Florida but DeSantis is opening school sports up?
    This while the teachers are going to boycott until there are more safety measures?
    It sure is phucked in the south.
