Please tell me this is some kind of sick joke…

Just last month, a “high-ranking” college football official said “no one is playing football in the fall” and it looks like they’re going to be right.

According to Sports Illustratedthe 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.

“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.

“Nobody wanted to be the first to do it,” a Power 5 coach told ESPN, “and now nobody will want to be the last.”

“I think it’s inevitable,” referring to cancellation said another Power Five AD.


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.
