Brandon Marcello with 247 Sports is reporting that the Southeastern Conference will be discussing a conference only football schedule for the 2020 season during a meeting next week.

The news comes just a few hours after it was reported that the Big Ten was planning to play a conference only schedule in 2020.
quote:

Discussions will include an eight- to 10-game schedule in the SEC, though no final decision was expected to be reached at the meeting. The Big Ten's decision, however, may change that. Publicly, the SEC remains steady with its plan to wait until late July or early August to make any decisions on the upcoming football season, which is threatened by the novel coronavirus COVID-19.

The SEC's head coaches conducted a meeting with conference administrators, including commissioner Greg Sankey, on Thursday morning and were told at the time the conference will wait as long as possible before making any decisions on the football season, including whether to start on time or move to a conference-only schedule, a person involved in the call told 247Sports.

Well Vanderbilt ( always thinks it’s a Ivy League school )will be the first to shutdown its season. Odds 2-1

Smaller schools are about to get ate up. How are they even going to have a season?

Just cancel the entire damn season.

lesser funded schools would have a harder time keeping up the precautions, not that it's going to matter anyways...

If I'm choosing between a spring season and shortened season with no out-of-conference games, I take spring season every time. Seems like the much better solution for fans, players, and the NCAA.

The teams and leagues should say they are protesting something. Then they could do whatever they want and can ignore all mandates related to the COVID.

This is true. Per the “experts”, protests magically do not spread the Chinese virus.

I'm good with an all conference schedule but how is that any safer? I think it's less about safety but more about managing the complexity (i.e., managing outside league, conference, individual school cancellations or restrictions...)

Caving into an average virus and propaganda yet again. Americans have become weak.

It would suck major arse to lose the Texas game but this probably benefits the SEC more than anyone

As long as the NCAA & CFB allows the liberals and media to dictate with their scaremongering of COVID 19 they will continue to chop away at the college football season ( see Ivy League). Not even listening to true Scientific research these mob-baiters and election meddlers will do anything to destroy college football, school attendance and the American lifestyle. All in the hopes of turning our great American experience into a Socialist utopia.

Could not have said it better. Enough is enough. Everybody needs to just stop with this pretend pandemic.

Please elaborate on what you think is true scientific research on COVID-19 and provide sources.

I would rather a 10 game conference only schedule than 12 games including the sisters of the poor and bidirectional polytechnic state reformatory.

This is insane. 18-24 year olds are at essentially zero risk. Swine Flu was wayyyy more dangerous.

I had the swine flu. Was down feeling shitty for maybe a day, then A ok.

Mortality rate for people under 70 with Covid is less than the flu. This has gotten silly

How did I know this was coming

Probably cheaper to pay penalty for not playing than no fans for ticket sales and pay them to show up.

So Lsu plays 8 games 9 games and Ohio State plays 11
