I saw where some columnist suggested we'll see kneeling during the anthem this upcoming season at the pro, college, and HS football. As far as college how if the players aren't on the field? At JMU JMU the national anthem is done as I vaguely recall about 10-12 min before the game starts when the players aren't on the field. I just watched a JMU pre game video. The anthem started 10+ min/was finished about 9 min before the players came out of the tunnel to smoke/fireworks and all that pre game rah rah stuff (the captains had come out earlier, but well after the anthem) 1-2 min before kickoff.

For fans of other schools- is that how its done at your school (the anthem being done before the players come out on the field)?

Edit: Nevermind, apparently its almost universal in college that players aren't on the field for the anthem.

The whole kneeling thing has you worried, doesn't it?

Why don’t we just eliminate the anthem from sporting events?

At least 30 of LSU's 115 players have been isolated because they tested positive for COVID-19 or were found to have had contact with those who tested positive.

Pure speculation and no chance of happening but it would be interesting.
A decade later, it’s time to blow up what was done and start over. The COVID-19 pandemic’s effects have been profoundly felt in a realm where, for 10 years, money was no object and the map made no sense. Slapped in the face by a new fiscal reality, maybe we’re due to both rein in and reach out—to contract geographically into more regional conferences, while expanding the scope of the revenue gusher that is the College Football Playoff.
https://www.si.com/college/2020/06/29/n ... ealignment
On Monday, Sports Illustrated published Pat Forde’s “America, Realigned,” a project where the veteran college football writer tried to recreate the conferences within the Football Bowl Subdivision. As one could coin it now, as SI did, he created the "Forde Bowl Subdivision."

Obviously can't happen because the "haves" would never part ways with the power and money they currently have. The above assumes an 11 game schedule every year, meaning teams will flip between 5 and 6 home games in consecutive years. With teams like Alabama and Clemson pulling in 8 home games right now, I can't see them saying "sure, I'll go into a conference with App St, Charlotte, ECU, and ODU, and I'll split home games with them". It's an interesting idea, but I don't really see the benefit for the current "haves".

I fully agree for the reasons you stated. Just thought it was a cool article (leaving the NDSU comment aside) and the theoretical changes it would entail.

The expanded playoff idea was something I was particularly interested in.

Got my season ticket notice in the mail. Going the iphone/google pay route, which them claim to be touchless. The ticket scanners always end up touching the phones anyway.

JMU for the last doz or so years has done a really nice spiral notebook presentation that contained season tickets & parking passes. Contained other program info, and ads & discounts for local businesses. No more. Now its print at home for the parking pass an season tickets (tickets can also do the touchless/scan your phone thingy I believe).

MSU started doing the spiral notebook thing recently. It's a slick presentation, but I've always felt it's a waste. Although they're probably not that expensive when you're having thousands printed up, it's money I'd rather see go towards something a little more practical.

For JMU the season ticket record was under 8k. The avg order was probably around 4 tickets, so that's ballpark 2k season ticket packages to mail out. With the design, printing & Fed Ex shipping (probably bulk rate discount) I'm guessing around $15 per order, so maybe around $30k ballpark cost to the Athletic Dept. Once you factor in the ad revenue from local businesses, the cost really isn't that much in the grand scheme of things.

The Texas State Fair was cancelled today...normally the Red River Showdown between Texas and Oklahoma is played at the Cotton Bowl as part of the Fair...

Both schools are watching what is happening, with both issuing bland statements about it is their intentions to play the game at the Cotton Bowl...but they will watch what happens over the next few weeks...

Not surprising considering they're located Coronavirus Central (NYC), and if you ranked teams based on the population density of the area they were located, Fordham would probably rank #1.

Places like Gallup NM, Yakima, WA and Houston Texas are replacing NYC.

FWIW I just saw that 1 of those games was against Hawaii.. :suspicious:

Their press release said that they will reschedule the games for the future and add a game during their 10/24 bye week. So if they play will be a 9 game regular season.

I don’t see how this season gets played.

To do it this fall would be stupid, and there are no guarantees that we will be out of the woods this spring, either.

At best, if schools insist on playing, the average DI school might get 2-3 games played.

I agree. I've said it before, FCS football and lower costs a lot of money in a normal year to play. This year it would be even more of a money loser, at a time when the rest of the college is also struggling for money. They actually save money by not playing this fall. If college football gets played, it's only the big boys, with the big TV contracts and who make money playing football, who will be playing.
