I would think that the tv networks...who will be paying almost all of the money this year with few to no fans in the stands...would need an answer in the first week of August.
My best guess is that the SEC/ACC/Big12 go with a 9 or 10 game fall schedule primarily on Disney properties (ESPN/ABC).
I think the Pac12 and Big10 play in the Spring primarily on Fox Sports properties.

Plus you have the NCAA rules that about what they are wanting as well. There is a vaccine in testing stage right now so I'd say just move football to spring and then have summer practice and have regular football season to get it back on track.

Who knows. I kind of don’t want them to play at this point.

I watched a couple of baseball games this weekend and it was pitiful.

And to see camera men without a person close enough to throw a grenade at them (the very definition of social distancing) wearing a mask....there’s no logic in any of this.

If we don't have football this fall as usual, then I say "Just move on, don't have it at all"!

I watched some MLB too. Looked like they were still in spring training. Level of play definitely was off.

I think a CFB start date around the first of October is doable. I would bet significant money that CV will be a non issue by then (just look at Italy, etc, for examples). Cancel non conference games and every team play their conference games with a bye around the middle. Finish on time for Atlanta.

The networks made their typical scheduling decisions two weeks prior during the season.

You still watched MLB after they kneeled? Screw them....along with the NFL and NBA. As much as I love college football, if they ever start kneeling, I will never watch another game if I live to be 100. 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸

We’ve had a vaccine for the flu for how long and it’s still here? It’s not going anywhere. When the world decides to move on and not be terrified is the bigger question. Even if there is a vaccine, a lot of people will not take it. So it’s never going to just up and go away.

I should’ve reworded that your right it won’t ever go away even with a vaccine it will just be controlled like the flu and yep some people won’t get the vaccine just like they don’t get the flu shot.

The charts disagree....

If you look at Italy or all of the previous “hot spots” ... they all look the same.
Someone in another thread, or maybe it was this one, I can't keep up...just argued that masks do no good because cases in California a month after the mandate to wear masks were up.

Not arguing, I just find it interesting.

Everybody is right, except the people we get the information from, they all promoting fear porn. Except for my source. Lol.

I've beaten this drum A LOT. But the counting of flu deaths and Covid deaths distorts the comparison. If we counted flu deaths with the effort and "liberalism" that Covid is being counted... we'd likely have well over 100K deaths every year. Or conversely, if counted Covid and only counted the deaths where Covid played a significant role then the count would be much less.

IOW's, the counting is what makes this "scary" more than the reality... unless we should have been terrified of the flu for decades.

I oppose masks mandates because we have not been provided with objective proof or a risk assessment for putting 330 million healthy people in masks. If that proof is provided then I will support ENCOURAGED use of masks. OSHA DOES have guidelines that recognize mask wearing risks. So the group think driving mask wearing is troubling.

The government has just as much business mandating masks as they do mandating condoms.... and unwanted pregnancies and STD's are MUCH larger problems.
