Yes, they did change the scheduling and tried to do more regional scheduling. It was impossible to do complete regional scheduling, but they did retool and even some divisional opponents are not playing each other this year.
At least we may have a season. Still will not be legitimate because I’m sure there will be a few games where one team will be at a a disadvantage because of players testing positive for COVID and how the quarantine rules will effect their roster vs. their opponent. Teams with the best quality depth will have more of an advantage than they normally do.
if they play a season it’s legitimate, you’re only as strong as your weakest link. It’s true as a team and a program. If one team runs thin due to COVID, well, that’s life. They keep score for every game, so the outcome matters.

11640 is only the total number of donors. You can get tickets without donations and not every donor has football tickets either.
UT has finally pulled season tickets from their website, which implies to me that the announcement is imminent and pretty much ensures that people who purchased the Vol Pass/$300 donation-free season tickets/pretty much any low-donation seat are going to be receiving refund guidelines in short order.
"Details are uncertain as to how individual program schedules will shake out at this time, but rumors believe that the two additional opponents could be the next two in each team’s rotation.
