As mid August rolls around we are still unclear on the 2020 College Football Season.
Reports from sources confirm either later today or this coming Monday we should have a much clear picture on the season and if it will even leave the launch pad.
Earlier Saturday morning, the Mid-American Conference — which includes Central Michigan, Eastern Michigan and Western Michigan — announced its decision to cancel the fall football season. (The conference hopes to play in the spring if conditions improve.)
The MAC is the first Football Bowl Subdivision league to call off competition, three days after independent Connecticut became the first FBS school to do the same..
As of today eight of the 13 NCAA Division I Football Championship Subdivision (FCS) conferences have now announced that they aren’t playing conference football this fall — meaning the annual FCS playoffs to determine a national champion will not be held this fall.
If the college season is deferred to next spring what does this mean for the NFL?
Right now we have a total of 60 NFL players who have chosen not to participate in the 2020 season and rumor has it that without college games there is a solid push for the nFL to move Sunday games to Saturday.
If the College season is DONE – you have to wonder how that would affect the 2021 NFL draft next year.
Something else to consider during this crazy year we call 2020.
