This is an excellent summary from ESPN of the issues that face college football as it tries to figure out how on earth to play a season in 2020. The entire athletic department budget for nearly every school depends on football being played, but how do they get all the players together and safe to make it happen? Do they play without fans? Can they get players on campus soon enough to have enough training camp? Can you play college football with "student-athletes" if there are no classes being held for students at the same time? Many of these same problems are also problems for the NFL in determining how it will play its 2020 season.
This article is posted to give FO commenters a place to discuss the future of football during the current pandemic but we want to stay away from political discussions. Please keep your comments solely to a discussion of the impact of the coronavirus on football, not a discussion of all of society or unemployment or the election or whether certain politicians are to blame for where we are now. And be very careful not to call each other names and let this discussion get nasty. Thanks.
