The 2020 college football season is not exactly in the best of shape to happen due to the global pandemic, but it appears the entire season might get scrapped pretty soon.
On Saturday, the MAC became the first FBS conference to announce it was canceling the 2020 season due to COVID-19 and it has since led to plenty of talk of other leagues, including the Power 5 conferences, joining suit.
CBS Sports’ Dennis Dodd is now reporting a pair of unnamed Power 5 athletic directors who are pessimistic about the possibility of there being football this fall.
One calls it “inevitable” that the season gets canceled.
“It’s not fair what we’re doing to our coaches and student-athletes,” one long-time Power Five AD said. “The sooner we can come to a finality, the better.”
“I think it’s inevitable [the season will not be played in the fall],” said another veteran Power Five AD.
The financial ramifications will be monumental if the season is canceled, but if players feel their health is at risk, they may just force the NCAA’s hand to get them to cancel it outright until a vaccine is found and we can get back to normal for 2021.
