College football fans, we all knew this was coming. The Big 10 and Pac 12 have officially cancelled their football seasons for this fall. At the time of this blog, leagues still moving forward are the ACC, AAC, Big 12, Conference USA, SEC, and Sun Belt.
Mixed emotions here. I love college football as much as anyone, and was really hoping there would be some way to make it work. But, at some point it seemed like a logistical nightmare to try and get a season in with the pandemic. The #WeWantToPlay movement on Twitter has been received loud and clear, but I also understand the university president’s and conference commissioner’s hesitancy to try and make this work.
I think this timely, very recent GIF should sum up how I feel.
RIP to the 2020 college football season.
