    No more 2020 football season?

    Although the article below is FBS, may we get our hands full on discussing what the impact on our FCS programs may be if the coming season is cancelled?

    If FBS is cancelled then FCS would be the biggest college game playing.

    If FBS is cancelled, the lower divisions will not play. NAIA is about the only one that could stay open for business, but I doubt they would in that scenario.

    If this does make it into the fall, I wonder what the impact on the value of professional sports franchises will be.

    Q
    You can find "expert opinions" all over the board right now. From it'll peak within the next 2-3 weeks to it won't peak until mid-summer to this will come back every year to it'll be dormant for multiple years after this outbreak.

    Neither us nor the experts even have close to enough data to make intelligent decisions about what to do 5+ months from now.

    We don't even have close to enough data to make decisions about what to do in September.
    We have more than enough data to contemplate multiple scenarios which include the possibility of no football in 2020. To deny it is to deny reality. Not talking about making a firm decision now.

    But you have to keep in mind they completely sealed off the region where it started, and took much more draconian social distancing measures in that region.
