You knew the SEC wouldn’t cancel their season

Recommended Posts

The SEC might be saying that now, knowing they can change their minds once they see how the NFL season works out for the first few weeks, assuming it starts on time.

Same thing the other power 5 conferences did. Big 12 might be the only one still trying to play the full Schedule

Feel bad for the AAC - in many ways it is more Power 5 than ACC minus Clemson. And given they get lower TV revenue, these match ups with P-5 were critical to their SOS and financial viability. More importantly, their COVID protocols are no worse than the P-5. Maybe they can have some revenue by being the one in the ACC's 10+1 or the Big 12 can fill the holes in its schedule by scheduling a game or two with the AAC.

Are the student athletes going to be the only ones on campus?  Aren't these schools going virtual?

many even if leaning virtual are trying to get portions on campus. 
 

freshman in the fall to get their bearings and graduating seniors in the spring, as an example. Along with special cases, athletes, etc... depending on the school, state etc...

I hope you're right. I can only imagine someone getting heart damage and the school saying the scholarship is needed for football. They may replace the scholarship, as it would an publicly inflammatory thing for them not to.

My kid ( Div. 1 Track scholarship) goes to UNC Asheville Saturday.

So far, they are still set to run within their division ( Big South) 

He is staying off campus and about half his classes are in person.

A conference-only schedule might result in the best year of SEC ball ever. Alabama won't be able to get away with playing no one until the championship.

Yeah but with the other conferences going to conference play only, who do they have left to play?

 

Will be interesting to see if the ACC drops their extra non conference game now that as Paul Finebaum stated the SEC told the ACC "Blank you"!

exactly.  this is great. 

 

we'll be vaccinating 50yr old+ coaches, grandmas, fattys/sickys by November, so should be able to get through this.   

 

need to power through.  there will always be edge cases that the media will make total hay on, but the vast majority of 20 year old college athletes have very little to fear from this thing.

By the end of August, the best SEC teams will be the ones with any actual players left who actually don’t have Covid,due to those bonehead sunbelt states. I think the NFL has the tech and huge financials needed for them to be able to start stop a few times if needed. IMO college football will have many cancelled games and we will end up with an extended playoff there to make up for it. This might be exciting if this ends up as a top 16 tourney because there is a shell of a season.

I just hope they have fans in the stadium, it’s a big reason I watch the SEC broadcasts.  Nothing else like it.

Aside from having 3 of the last 7 National Champions in Football and 3 of the last 5 National Champions in Men’s Basketball, I suppose the AAC is more P5 than the ACC....

This is much better, less soft padding for the power teams to load up on.
