    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.

    It's idiotic to even be contemplating this right now. There's no reason to even make a decision before July. As if this blurb from the article means anything:
    With 72 percent of Americans believing containment will take a few months or longer, 57 percent say the battle with the coronavirus is "going badly," according to a CBS News poll.
    It's just sportswriters and pundits trying to find something to talk about.

    Not sure what the delay was, since we (WIU fans) have known this was going to be the schedule for at least the last couple of months, but here's WIU's (assuming no change of schedule or cancellation of season due to COVID-19):



    9/3 - vs North Alabama
    9/12 - at Eastern Washington
    9/19 - at Oklahoma State (FBS, Big 12)
    9/26 - bye week
    10/3 - at South Dakota
    10/10 - vs Northern Iowa
    10/17 - vs North Dakota
    10/24 - at Illinois State
    10/31 - at South Dakota State
    11/7 - vs Youngstown State
    11/14 - @ Southern Illinois
    11/21 - vs Indiana State

    Do not play - North Dakota State, Missouri State

    I agree a decision probably doesn't need to be made before July but it's not idiotic, in the least bit, to be contemplating it. Athletic departments, school administrators and university systems, especially during times of uncertainty, both on the health and economic side, need to plan scenarios well ahead, not on the fly. As much as I hate to think about the possibility of not having a 2020 season, there's no doubt it's being discussed at the highest levels. Especially if there's the possibility of a second wave coming sometime late fall or early next winter.
