There has been a lot of speculation around whether or not there will be a college football season. Concerns about student and student-athlete safety are paramount of course. Concerns about revenue are secondary only to that. University athletic departments are likely wringing their hands behind closed doors while doing as much contingency planning as they can, and as you might expect with an organization as ineffectual as the NCAA, nobody has really stepped up to lead.
And so, the season will likely be up to the individual universities and conferences. Here are some selected tweets and articles that I’ve found relevant, and that are meant to drive discussion.
Note: DO NOT PULL POLITICS INTO THIS DISCUSSION. I will shut it down immediately. That means no references to either party, no reference to any political leaders, no reference to any news or media organization. You get the idea. If in doubt err on the side of caution. Keep it around sports. Yes it’s intertwined with states opening up, but you can have that debate without expressing your political opinion. Example: Georgia is currently open. Fact. That means universities are likely to open. I may or may not agree with that, but it’s a possibility based on a fact. As long as I stay away from talking about the Governor, this kind of comment is in bounds. You guys have done a good job of self-policing so far. Keep it up.
