So we touched on this in this week's Behind Enemy Sidelines
That said, in text, the health issues of a spring season are almost as serious as playing in a COVID-19 world – just different. Asking players to do an 8 game spring schedule (the current proposed idea) from like Feb to April, then opening camp again in like August and starting a normal fall season seems dangerous. Just a different type of dangerous.
I don't agree or believe they're just doing the 'delaying the inevitable' cancelling. Why not? Money. These athletic departments need the TV revenue. They need it for a myriad of reasons, primarily funding all non-revenue sports. A lot of those sports, think track or volleyball or tennis, will simply die if football isn't played.
Is spring football more unlikely than fall football? Honestly no idea. It's an interesting point though.
