I imagine the Clemson AD is willing to lose a few games for the millions of $$$ it will generate to float the department and save his job

Clearly we will have a football season poll.  You just did one.

Heh, yes I did, 100% chance.

Between the protests over racial stuff and the virus ....

I am preparing myself for disappointment.  My guess is baseball will start up and then have to be ended after 2-3 weeks even with no crowds, and no spitting.  How can they play without spitting?

It's impossible to play baseball without spitting. It can't be done.

From Tom Shatel - Omaha Weird Herald..........

 The prospects of Nebraska playing a 12-game season this fall look extremely doubtful.

South Dakota State Athletic Director Justin Sell told CBS Sports last week that SDSU athletics is not testing for the coronavirus — for financial reasons.

No tests, no football, no way. And no South Dakota State at Nebraska game on Sept. 19.

It’s a Catch-22 for schools like SDSU, which need the money from playing at Nebraska. But sorry, that’s a risk nobody should have to take.


I see no reason why Nebraska, with diligent and active testing by its staff, can’t have football practice this fall. How many games will be played? At this point, with opponents from 10 different states — with varying degrees of testing and positive tests — it feels like six or seven games might be a good year in 2020.

It’s still too soon to know what this season will be like. If it’s a shortened hybrid of normality, a lot of coaches and programs are going to be upset.

I selected:

5.  Will play without many fans present and some teams will have an epidemic and forfeit games.

I now am looking at this more clearly. I would parse this out more because the part that says, "some teams will have an epidemic and forfeit games" is probably inaccurate. I suspect the NCAA will not regard teams not playing as losing by forfeit. I suspect games will just not be played, and those that are not played will not have a "forfeit" or "loss" on their record.

Grinnell College just canceled their D-III football season. I am not sure that what Grinnell College plays can be characterized as college football. You can look them up and see what I mean. 

They didn't play the final seven-games last season.

Gene Smith (OSU AD) - said something of the sort that they are planning for the possibility of having a reduce season. The current flavor of the day is to play 8 conference games over 12 weeks, allowing for the possibility teams rescheduling games later.


Harvard has proposed that the Ivy League cancel all fall sports and run a condensed spring version. 

I voted for 5, I think there will be some games, with little to no fans. 
Unless there is a death, then I think it will shut down.

Might as well ban crotch adjustments....

Sounds like some of us could walk on and get some playing time there.
