East Lansing, Mich—Normally, the month of May is all about the same questions when it comes to college football. That is true this year, but unlike past years the concerns are entirely different.
The questions usually start with who should or shouldn’t be in the Top 25 and a look at teams on the rise or decline as people predict records. But COVID-19 has destroyed the usual questions.
Now we wonder if fans will be in the stands. What will the safety protocols be? Where does social distancing fit, if at all?
