NCAA Looking At Moving Up The College Basketball Season Start Date To Oct. 27
Brian Spurlock -USA TODAY Sports
How would you feel about college basketball starting a few weeks earlier on October 27th?

The NCAA’s highest-ranking basketball executive has floated the idea to conference leaders about accelerating the start of the men’s basketball season, moving it up two weeks to increase scheduling flexibility and get more games played in event of a winter interruption.

NCAA senior vice president of basketball Dan Gavitt told Sports Illustrated on Monday that he has proposed moving season-opening games from Nov. 10 to Oct. 27, with perhaps a corresponding acceleration of practice from the currently scheduled start date of Sept. 29. The goal is for schools to play something closer to a full slate of regular-season games amid what could be an uncertain collegiate school year both academically and athletically, as campuses search for ways to deal with COVID-19 fallout.

the NCAA doesn't have anything to do with football. Now they just need to make that happen for everything else.

In fairness, panicky media assumptions (based on the Ivy League lol) is what has floated the concept of Spring Football moreso than anything from the NCAA. This news is probably good if you want CFB in the Fall. It has been theorized that most ADs agree that w/o Football, you can't play Basketball either.
