    We aren’t going to have fall football, so prepare yourselves now for the bad news when it’s eventually announced.

    It also means we’re going to be stuck with Prohm for the full extent of his deal, and the pedestrian bridge should be called off now.

    Yep, all these things could very well happen.

    And us, the spectator, will live.

    Totally agree.

    I just think there’s a slim to none chance of there being fall football, so prepare yourself now.

    I think you're looking for the 'early spring tornado season' thread.

    I have an odd suspicion that he did it himself.

    I’m gonna predict we go into full shutdown in November while we are on a historic 9-1 start and don’t get to play out the rest of next season.

    I'll admit I have absolutely no idea what's coming. But the thought of this pandemic still going in September really depresses me.

    I just think the problem is preparedness. Football is a dangerous sport. If you've cut out Spring Ball and in any way have to cut back on fall practices it's going to be difficult.

    I could see them buying some extra time by eliminating the non-conference.

    Who knows what's going to happen, but we're talking about something that would commence five months in the future that could still happen with a 45-60 day training period for preseason. Guys used to show up at NFL training camps from their offseason jobs and used the pre-season to get in shape.

    Look how quickly facts are changing on the ground as we speak. Look how quickly things changed in the last two weeks. Hot takes that life as we know it is coming to an end seem to be popular these days.
