This week is going to be huge for college football. Tomorrow the Ivy League is expected to make a decision on their future of football this year.
Yesterday, Harvard kind of gave you a sneak peak of what was going to happen. Harvard announced it will have no in-class learning for the entire academic year, fall and spring. They are however expected to have 40 percent of their undergraduates in residence.
Harvard and others in the Ivy League are expected to make a decision soon if they are going to have football this year, but it sure sounds like they are not going forward with football.
Many feel the Ivy League will move their season to the Spring, giving them more time. This would make the most sense, but if this happens, I would not be shocked if every division makes the same move. I mean they are the smartest schools right?
Another few leagues that are on the brink are the SIAC conference of Division 2, who already had one school (Morehouse) cancel their entire season. Another conference who will make their decision soon is the Patriot League. Fordham who is in the Patriot League has already cancelled three of their games this year. Colgate and Bucknell have big games this year with some FBS teams that are likely to be cancelled as well.
This is going to get ugly, and I would not be shocked if college football does not happen. I hate to say it, but I feel this is going to be one of the worst years for sports. It has already been a train wreck. Can 2020 just leave?
