Well it’s gonna take 14 of the 14 schools to open in the fall for this to work. So much can happen between now and when training starts but at the moment, I’m less than confident we’ll have college football this year.

The return of college football would be just what our country needs to lift its spirits. I’ll take empty stadiums over no football any day.

The fiscal impact in these southern collegiate towns, especially those where the school is the only thing going, if football isn’t played this fall is gonna be huge. Towns like Clemson, Auburn, Oxford, Starkville, Tuscaloosa....it’s gonna be fugly as hell. In addition to the revenue losses from the NCAA, the community will lose considerable revenues that will take them years to recover.....
Now I do agree here. The town of Clemson will be hit hard for sure. Fortunately, the moderately sized city of Greenville is a short drive from campus and that city is big enough to survive this.

They won't be fine if we have no vaccine for this virus- hell Iam a physician , ain't no way in hell Iam going to a football game wiht 80,000 people who can be exposed to a virus in which we have inadequate testing for and no vaccine. For older people wiht preexisting conditions it is really a death sentence.
I meant Clemson will be fine financially. With or without football. I totally understand and agree that there may not be any football played at any level this fall. For some schools that may be a death sentence. For others, more of an inconvenience. Clemson falls in the later category. They have alums and boosters with big enough bank accounts to keep them afloat no matter what.

Clemson has their IPTAY program and multiple boosters with endless pockets. They’ll be just fine.
This has personal written all over it. Dr. French must have someone else in mind.
Coach Wallace is just the Women’s Basketball HC now. He gave up the AD title a few years ago but I don’t remember there ever being a reason given. At least not publicly. Coach Ruffin is the current AD.

Not even worth getting anyone’s blood pressure up over. There won’t be any football played this season.
Least of our concerns now. C'mon man!
I try not to get too consumed in the “what if’s” because this could spell the end of more than a few of our schools if it drags out long enough. All we can do is pray. And for those of us that are in a position to do so: GIVE back to our institutions!
Least of our concerns now. C'mon man!
I think it’s a fair question that most of us have wondered at least once or twice since all this started.
To answer the OP’s question: I hope so. I could desperately use a distraction from all the doom and gloom that is the current state of humanity. That being said, I have my doubts. Especially since a vaccine probably won’t be available until much later.

This dude fumbles all the time on social issues. That’s why I’m so shocked he’s able to get so many recruits to buy into what he’s selling. I’m convinced if I had a conversation with this dude, I’d disagree with him far more often than not.

I wouldn’t wish this virus on anyone.....but I don’t question karma.
The remainder of the tournament has been suspended.
Yeah being the last conference to cancel by a few hours isn’t a good look. It almost looks like they only cancelled after the NCAA announced they were cancelling their tournament.
