With some colleges already delaying fall classes etc any rumors out there re status of upcoming season??
Dont worry the colleges got bailed out, penn state got 55 million. Why I dont know, the students still paid for the semester and they didn't give them any money back.This country is already hurting if there’s an abbreviated college football ball schedule the amount of revenue lost is going to be devastating. The billions already lost from sports being shut down we haven’t realized the consequences yet.
I don’t see us recovering from this. I hope so but it’s hard to see how!
The football program generates over 100 million a year (about 35 million in ticket sales alone). I imagine that number will be way down this year, regardless of the measures they take to keep the revenue up. PSU will be lucky to cover their loss with that 55 million.....most of which will be earmarked for non-athletics , I'm certain. And I believe all of the football revenue stays within the athletic department. So the athletic depart will suffer, no doubt.Dont worry the colleges got bailed out, penn state got 55 million.

That's my guess too....there will be a cavalier attitude with total ignorance of any safety measures. The FL Spring Break fiasco prime example. Hey...likely classes will be shutdown by Thanksgiving break till a next fall do it all over again. Plenty are "career students" anyways so having a 6-10 year college tenure fits right in!!If the colleges have students back on campus, forget about masks and distancing and just pack the stadiums and play the games.
If anyone thinks for a second that college parties will not continue on as they always have, you're delusional. At that time of life the entire goal is to REMOVE all distance between yourself and the members of the opposite sex (or these days even the same sex) that you socialize with.
