    Apparently the Big 10 has dropped the Non-Conference games this season for football. I am curious to see what the other conferences are going to do. The talking heads think that the ACC will absorb Notre Dame. Will we even have football this year?

    PAC 12 is now on a conference schedule only. Big12 and ACC to announce at the end of this month. SEC to evaluate the situation on Monday. The only Power 5 school we play this year is Okie State.

    Are they moving conference games up to September ? Seems silly to think this will be better come November.

    If the Big 12 backs out of non conference, I’m claiming that a forfeit and a Tulsa victory over OSU!

    From what I am hearing they are thinking of moving them up just in case they have to stop because of the virus. Spring football hasn’t been ruled out either

    I am just glad it’s this year and not next year. We have Ohio State next year

    This is a joke, if the entire season cannot be played it will heavily impact the CFP. Some conferences play 8 conference games, some play 9. Independents not named Notre Dame are really impacted. What happens to the cancelled non-conference games, do the schools getting snubbed receive the equalivant of a game buyout? Most of these games are scheduled years in advanced and cannot be rescheduled. I can't imagine "pandemic" is part of the fine print when defaulting on a contract.

    Two NCAA D-2 leagues have cancelled all fall sports...the CIAA and the SIAC.

    The word over here on the east coast is there is talk about ND being added as a conference game as 6 of the teams they play are from the ACC

    Sure is. They all have them, especially in the South with non-golden hurricanes. The real trick is figuring out if the CoVid is an act of God or whether it is an act of man accidentally released from a lab. Nobody really knows but somebody has to pay and some judge has to decide. Interesting stuff.

    Now would be an excellent opportunity to pull Army or BYU into the AAC equation.

    I am not sure if the academies will play. The middies are coming back in phases. Not sure how that is working out for the football team though
