Even though College Sports are no longer being played, the NCAA and colleges continue to make news. Some of the news is an expected part of the norm, while other news concerns the new world of Covid19 and the future of intercollegiate athletics or, more to the point, football and basketball.
There is growing discussion over the coming football season in the world of Covid19. When will it start? What will it look like? Will it take place at all? The discussions around these questions spin in many directions and, at times, crisscross one another. Are there any guidelines that have been set? Do we have any indication of who will answer these questions or set the guidelines? Will it be the NCAA, the Conferences, the individual universities, the coaches, the athletes? And, what role will television play? One of the most interesting questions centers on the disposition of the university itself.
