College Football 2019-2020

Recommended Posts

This article from The Athletic is a good read. The sample is small. But provides a decent window into how the players are thinking about the return (or not) of football.

As of today, the current time frame for a decision as to whether the season starts on time is projected to come by the 2nd week in July. Mainly due to the logistics of having to get everything ready. So that could change. But that is the goal right now. Alabama is very lucky in that University of Alabama at Birmingham is one of the top research hospitals in the country (and the developers of Remdesivir) is part of our state system. They are also a part of helping in the University's decision making process. Including how many fans might be allowed to attend games in our 100,000+ seat stadium. Also seeing how the NBA workouts go will be a guide in regard to if there is a positive case, how wide the spread might be (or not). And how to proceed re quarantine (or not) for those who test negative but have been exposed.

There are a LOT of possibilities. As of now, the hope is for a full schedule, as scheduled currently. If that can't happen, some of the options (but certainly not all) are starting the season later (possibly even the winter); a "conference games only" schedule; and an 8 game only schedule - then conference championships followed by the Playoffs. Our AD is the current President of the National Association of Collegiate Directors of Athletics.  So he has very good insight into who is thinking what in regard to the season. Including that there are some schools that (as of today) are not planning to play football this year. But most are in and chomping at the bit to get going.
