If Football is moved to the Spring
How exactly will that work? Won't star players sit out to prepare for the NFL Draft? What about all the other Spring sports? NCAA Football the same time as March Madness? Season ends in May/June then turn around and start play again in late August/early September?

re: If Football is moved to the Spring
They’re moving football to the spring out safety for the players. It’s more dangerous to have them play two seasons in one year than play through COVID.

There won’t be spring football, they just don’t want to say that yet.

How does it work in Minnesota where the stadium is outdoors? We’ve had blizzards in April almost every year I’ve lived here

It won’t. Would be worse than not having a season at all.

re: If Football is moved to the Spring
Moving to the spring is optimist bull shite to soften the blow of canceling the season outright. Its not going to happen for all those reasons you listed. Too much of a ripple effect that impacts future seasons.

re: If Football is moved to the Spring
it would definitely alter the traditional spring sporting events that have already taken a hit this year.

the idea sucks.

and shouldn't even be on the table.

the people in charge are afraid of the liability I guess?

who fricking knows.

its all about passing the buck ion this country.

re: If Football is moved to the Spring
How are they going to pay for the required spring women’s sports without having the fall football revenue? They’ll end up canceling all together for that reason alone.

This is going to be a death blow for many athletic departments

It will be played with Covid...4/5 months later they will play the 2021 fall season with Covid. Having players play 2 seasons with in 12 months. Very very safe

If football is moved to the Spring, then wait a few months until the media ramps up their campaign to cancel the season for good.

re: If Football is moved to the Spring
It would be a shite show if they tried.

As far as I've cared the whole way, it's football this fall or not until fall 2021, and it's looking like it will be fall 2021.

I don't care about the dog and pony show with them talking about spring football. It ain't happening.

re: If Football is moved to the Spring
I had an idea of a nine week season that begins on Halloween and ends on Christmas Eve, with a two week winter break and a 6-team playoff format, but it was downvoted like hell for some reason.

Better than the alternative though, which is either spring ball or none whatsoever.

Honest question....not trying to start an argument:

I see many say that playing in the spring (which they could start in late Jan and end in late Apr/early May) and then playing in the Fall (which could start as late as Oct 1 and still pretty much finish at the normal time...just use the month of Dec) is too dangerous.

If it is so dangerous, then how come there has never been anyone hospitalized, forget dying from playing 2/3 seasons in a row with no more than a month break?

There have been numerous players that have played a Fall football season (either collegiate or NFL) and then turned around and played a spring season in the USFL, WLAF/NFL Europe, XFL1, AAF, XFL2 with no issues. Some of those have even played a third consecutive season when they then played in the NFL/CFL after their spring league season.

Again, why is it too dangerous?

Just curious....

re: If Football is moved to the Spring
First of all if u are paid to play, feel free to play as much as u want. It’s gonna boil done to liability. If someone dies or has heart issues get ready to shell out a ton of money, even though they are more likely to get it outside of the university.

No one is being forced to play. Two Auburn players have already announced they are going to sit out the season. And they will still remain on full scholarship and in good standing with the team (as they should).

It would still be a choice for anyone that feels vulnerable.

And there would be ZERO liability in the situation you described.

re: If Football is moved to the Spring
Pro sports are run by billionaires who can absorb a loss in revenue for one year. Pro players are employees and have a union, so they can come to agreements on safety guidelines. Lessens the threat of litigation.

Universities have none of that. They are scared to death of getting sued and administrators have to balance a budget. I don’t know if people are prepared for how ugly that could end up being without a football season.
