Basketball starts in January with conference play, conference-only football in March. Seniors graduate. Athletic departments get their necessary cash flow. Everything back to normal next fall. Not easy but so logical, isn't it.

I don’t see how this is logical in August, no.

Not at all logical. Running guys through two seasons of football in 10 months is not logical. At all.

If college football can't take one lost season, financially, then the system needs to be nuked.

I'm not sure what ISU's football revenue is but Scott Frost said yesterday that Nebraska's was $100 million-plus. That's why Nebraska coming back for this fall makes some sense as well. Most of these athletic departments don't have a stockpile of cash or stockholder equity to leverage the business without football.

They just can't wrap their heads around losing all those $$$$.
But if they bubble the players and keep them out of classes while regular students continue to attend, they risk athletes looking more and more like employees who should be paid.

They lose less money skipping one season than they do paying players for a bunch of seasons.

They only make that revenue with 98,000 in the stands, which isn't happening.
