According to Sports Illustrated, the heads of the Power 5 conferences are going to be meeting over the next few days to hammer out this college football season. And word on the street is they’re more than likely going to cancel the season.
The Big 10 is preparing to cancel the football season, according to ESPN and multiple other reports.
An announcement could come very soon. If the Big 10 cancels, then the rest will likely follow.
It's hard to believe, but it looks like college football in the fall is over.
“It’s gotten to a critical stage,” one conference commissioner told Sports Illustrated. “I think all of us will be meeting with our boards in the coming days. We have work to do that is no fun.”
The Mid-American Conference was the first FBS conference to postpone the season, however the temperature right now is the Big Ten might be the first major conference to pull the trigger. If that happens, it could create a domino effect and ultimately put all of college football in jeopardy. It seems like a cancellation is inevitable.
Just got a text that Big Ten will announce they are cancelling College Football this Fall likely tomorrow
However, Heisman hopeful and National Championship winning quarterback Trevor Lawrence (Clemson) is looking to play, arguing that players are safer on campus than they are back at home.
People are at just as much, if not more risk, if we don’t play. Players will all be sent home to their own communities where social distancing is highly unlikely and medical care and expenses will be placed on the families if they were to contract covid19 (1)
Players being safe and taking all of the right precautions to try to avoid contracting covid because the season/ teammates safety is on the line. Without the season, as we’ve seen already, people will not social distance or wear masks and take the proper precautions
