The California University System will not be open for in-class students in the fall. This could have serious impact for the Pac-12 of which Cal and UCLA is a part of and many mid-major conferences and football programs if the prevailing view of "no students, no football" holds. That in turn could create a snowball effect which could affect the whole of college football.

If the SEC and other conferences feel that they can safely play, whether with it without fans, they won't let California's shut down stop then.

If students don't return to campus in the fall, there will be no football. People's heath is more important.

The response to this has been way over the top. Given the mortality rate has been seriously inflated and the greatest impact is to a small subset of the population, keeping the entire nation under lockdown is unacceptable. If this continues then our country will be sunk and a more serious issue will likely rear its head, suicides. If folks are losing everything they've worked so hard to accumulate, then the resultant despair could have significant negative impact. I pray that it doesn't come to that!

Careful fan, you will be admonished for talking about science.  Talk politics only.   I hope you all stay untouched by this virus.  If you happen to get this virus, science may save your life.

To the OP.  SEC administrators will video conference on 5.22 and vote whether or not to re-open practice facilities on either 6.1 or 6.15.  They may vote not to proceed.

 

That is all.

Things are looking up in Georgia. Just received notification that one of our small private universities ( they do have football and most other sports) is holding their on campus graduation June 13. One of my grands was sent her housing choice document for an August return. She is an athlete (softball). The worst reaction that we had in this state where I live was shutting down to shelter in place for 28 days. I took my wife out for a great dinner tonight eating wonderful food in a nice dining room with quite a few other people doing the same. Too bad Dr, Fauci could not participate because it might brighten his outlook on life to get that mask off for a while. They were also running a lot of take out dinners to people in cars picking up their meals and this is a place that hardly ever had a take out trade before. We went to Columbia the week end before last and just crossing the Savannah River was like going to a third world. It is hard to believe that two governments so close together could have such different response plans for Covid and the Georgia per capita results will likely come out better than SC, but of course demographics have a serious influence on results. I was glad to see Henry M. finally grow a pair and call off the lock down. I will put some $ down that USC comes back to school in the fall with the Presidents that are now in charge.

The so-called "experts" have been very wrong and their numbers are inflated. We all know this as fact since they admitted it. I'm all for science, but a lot of the response has not been based on science but an agenda. I wish they would stick to science and leave politics to the mudslingers.

If college football is allowed to be played in the SEC or anywhere else, it'll likely be a complete PITA to go to live games.  If current social gathering rules apply, it'll take forever for the 25% capacity to even get into stadiums as they stand 6' apart.  You'll have to do this the entire time wearing a mask.  Then you get into the stadium and it's a 1/4 full.  I can only imagine having to watch a game on a hot September afternoon all the while wearing a mask, sitting almost as if you're alone.  No thank you.

 

NASCAR finally ran a race at Darlington yesterday after 2 months of stoppage.  It's hard to get into racing and just about any other crowd participation sport without loud and raucous fans.

If they do not open for in class enrollment for the fall then I think they should lose all grant money and any federal or state funds. No lottery money for online students. No tax breaks for these rich liberals colleges that only want to brainwash young people minds with socialist non sense and promote a globalist agenda!
