    I'm sure the other Power-5 conferences are happy that someone made a move and they can continue printing TV money....
    One question that will be interesting to see what happens- if a region still has outbreak problems, and that pops up in college football locally- what will the rest of the country do? Or even the conference? Will Miami or Wisconsin be shunned from their conferences, or will the conference shut down?

    The TV contracts should be pretty bulky, given the number of eyes that they will have- there will be millions more potential eyes since they won't be at stadiums.

      TV is what's driving the ship I'm sure. TV Networks need content. Schools need $$$$... Both sides are too big for the other to just walk away.


      The SEC will do a 10-game, all in-conference schedule...

      Seeing MLB struggle, it's only a matter of time before a "major" team comes down with COVID. At this point, not only is the pickup truck sitting on the tracks, but it's in PARK, the driver has killed the engine, chucked the keys into the weeds in the ditch, and has gotten out and is standing on the tracks thinking he can block the train from hitting his truck... This is where we are with this....
      It's never too early to start the Pre-game festivities

      Go Cats!!! GO BLACKHAWKS!

      Cuck the Fubs... Let's Go WHITE SOX!!!

      • The SEC move is kind of unexpected- I thought they would follow the ACC with the longer schedule, including the NC game. But that's the smartest move if they actually intend to play. IMHO, the next step is to cancel the rest of the season if not the in-conference only schedule.

        Still, I'm quite curious what they plan on doing if a region or a team forces games to be canceled.

          I wouldn't be surprised if the ACC switches to a 10-game in-conference only schedule. They basically did the 10+1 to accommodate the big ACC-SEC rivalry games (Clemson - USC; FSU - Florida; Louisville - Kentucky; Georgia Tech - Georgia) in anticipation that the SEC would follow a similar 10+1 schedule.

          As for games being cancelled, I'm sure there is a contingency to utilize the built in "bye weeks" if necessary (including the week before the conference championship game). To me, the question is what is the trigger to cancel/reschedule? x% of players/coaches from a team test positive? 5 players/coaches? 10?

                • This is something I never thought I would say for a thousand reasons but:

                  I kind of hope the players en masse opt out and force changes in how college athletics and the players especially are handled going forward. The Universities have been living high off the hog for too ****ed long.

                  That wont happen...but I dont think the current set up is feasible for very much longer.

                    NEW: Multiple Pac-12 athletes spoke to SI about opting out of the football season if their voices aren’t heard. “We’re not your entertainment, we’re human beings.” “This is bigger than our individual selves. This is for all future college athletes.”
                    https://twitter.com/RohanNadkarni/st...15647376232448

                    Among the demands from Pac-12 athletes are player-approved health standards for playing in a pandemic, preservation of non-revenue sports, and fair-market pay through a revenue-sharing model. “The way to get your voice heard is to affect the bottom line.”
                    https://twitter.com/RohanNadkarni/st...23722929815553

                    “We’re trying to empower the lives of our teammates, change their lives and change the trajectory of their families’ lives.” “We don’t know the long term risks...I refuse to put my health at risk for somebody else’s benefit.”
                    Good for them!

                    edit: I still cant believe how much COVID (and seeing the response from dumbasses who cant live without sports) has changed my thinking about these issues.

                    • One writer who covers Washington State says the school released players who supported the movement. They are still in school but of the team...

                      That should go over well. (If true)

                        • If you are the coach who kicked players off because of this recruiting is going to be difficult in the future.

                            • And the sad part is that the first real outbreak in the US was just on the other side of the state.

                              Funny thing- by brother lives in Moscow- just 8 miles from Pullman/WSU- and they seemed to have had it come through in Feb, but nobody was tested. Huge increase of sick people, schools were closed, quite a few died. And now WSU wants to suppress any student protest over protections for the virus. I had thought the Pallouse was more progressive than that- even with all of the farmers.

                                I mean, they might be more progressive than the militias in northern Idaho, but it's still eastern WA, so it's all relative.
