It could be the start of universities possibly leaving the NCAA behind and starting their own “leagues.” There is nothing preventing schools from doing that right now. They could pay players, etc.

If they do play it will have little to no impact on the communities. No fans. Ne revenue generation.

I haven't watched a single basketball game due to the same. I typically enjoy a Rockets game at the end of season and playoffs but I refuse. This politics and sports blended platform bs just doesn't do it for me. Its coming for college football too. I give it 2-5yrs before cfb becomes a disaster.

Could you imagine if all the other conferences pulled the plug and the SEC still played a conference only schedule? Only CFB on TV, man that would just cement everyone's hatred for the SEC! SEC! SEC! even more if their teams were at home while ours played.

Saw the Louisville HC says that the ACC is playing this year no matter what other conferences do.

Also saw that Senator from Nebraska wrote a letter to the BIG 10 presidents to reconsider (use to be a college president)

I think you see the other conferences try to move forward and the BIG 10 changes course, but if they don't......

The players are saying they want to play and at school is safer than at home. Let those who want to play play. If a player wants to sit let them and reserve their scholarship.

If it's safe enough for students to be on campus it's safe enough to let them play.

I think the UIL will hold out, until they see if the number of cases rise when school starts. We could possibly get shut down before the 5A and 6A schools ever start.

You guys are missing the real downside to this, I don't care about football. But millions of guys that usually only hunt opening weekend and Thanksgiving weekend may decide to hunt more. That's bad for anyone who hunts public land as the woods will get over ran.
Just like you couldn't find a parking place at the boat ramp on a Wednesday morning all spring.

can you share what the contingency may look like? I coach a youth team and our league follows UIL so if uil cancels then we likely won't have a season either.
we were supposed to order uniforms today but no one knows what to do at this point.

Just my opinion, but boating is an excuse to go drink. Hunting requires actual work. It's the campgrounds I am more concerned about.

You maybe correct, I don't personally drink and hunt but I know lot of guys that do and if you already have the lease.
Heck I'm on a lease with a few other guys and I've only met the lease manger and 2 other members because they rarely hunt.

I'll stop hijacking the thread now.

There will still be pro ball, but if theres any sort of shut down in the fall like there was in the spring lord help the public land, hell I heard my neighbor talking about shooting a deer in the spring when the supermarket shelves were empty.
I can just imagine the newbies walking around with rifles in archery only areas, hopefully it won't happen. I can vouch for the boat ramp insanity in the spring, it happened.

NFL can have the season without fans, most of their revenue comes from their TV contracts, NCAA could do the same but the universities presidents won't condone playing games when classes aren't happening on campus as these are supposed to be institutions of learning not football.
