Wednesday Quickies: Hope for College Football Edition

New, comments

Hope still remains that a college football season can be played.

Yesterday was one of the wildest days in college athletics history.

As is well-known by now, the Big 10 and Pac-12 decided to postpone football until the spring, and then a flurry of news. Nebraska hinted at going rogue, the Pac-12 in that same measure seemingly said they weren’t playing basketball either, and then all eyes turned to the SEC, ACC, and Big 12, who are seemingly planning on moving forward with the goal of playing football in the fall.

What a day.

But with that, it seems like there is still some hope that college football will be played this fall, although if one was placing bets, that might not be the best bet.

Could a season with those three power conferences, along with a Group of Five conference like the American play out? It’s not impossible.

As much as safety is thrown around as a deciding factor, revenue and liability factor in heavily into this equation.

For college football fans, there is still some hope of spending Saturdays this fall in front of the television watching football, but it will be interesting to see how this plays out the next few days.

Selfishly, I really want to see this Kentucky team hit the field this fall. Postponing to the spring raises a lot of questions and unknowns.
