We just saw the Ivy League shoot that first real shot across the bow of college football it looks like the BIG10 Maybe up to something as well… While its not cancelling the season… its certainly going to change the mix.
All Fall Sports… I guess that would include not just football but basketball as well… would they decline March Madness if it is played? Or in football a bowl game against a non conference opponent.
I’ve long had a thought that conferences might go to conference-only schedules this year, including the SEC, assuming football is played at all. It cuts down on the number of influencers in how games are played. Every conference is going to have its own protocol to follow, and I doubt they will be uniform from one league to the next.
If this is true, the ramifications are HUGE across the entire NCAA landscape. A tidal wave effecting tens of thousands of athletes, coaches, administrators, etc…
The financial impact on the smaller schools is going to be devastating if any of the Power Five ($$$) conferences move to a conference only schedule. The smaller schools will be losing their $$$$ paychecks which supports not just their football program but also their entire athletic budget.
