But, we're still playing football or NAH?

Dude. This college season is just all over the map. These jerks are just forcing things. I get the feeling that it ain't gonna turn out like everyone wants it to.

I do not think there will be football this fall, but let's say I am wrong.  I think the SEC will try to play some games though I do not think they should.  Before mid October they will see how disastrous the decision is.  Therefore, they will end the season very early.

Obviously, I was wrong on the games.  The games yesterday and last weekend showed that.  (It is officially still summer, but I will take it that I was wrong on football not being played.)  We will see how right or wrong I will be in October or November on the SEC.

My question is will the SEC teams, as well as, the ACC be transparent if they have this many football players positive during the season. For right now, they are not worried about it because the season has started. I want to see how that plays out where you can barely field a team and a team with backups.

Was the Notre Dame joining the ACC planned for this fall or did COVID accelerate the timing?
