    Maybe I’m a heartless wench, but I don’t think these smaller programs should survive this. Their economic model is unsustainable and they’ve been propped up the money they make from playing bigger schools for too long.

    Plus, anything that gets the P5 teams to start playing meaningful OOC games again is a good thing.

    Your probably more right than wrong, but I still don't like it. I fear it will have a negative roll-downward effect on the sport.
    I have mixed feelings about it too. Right or wrong athletic scholarships provide opportunities for many to attend college, for example. The football teams also provide entertainment and economic benefits to the small college towns, like Cheney.

    But like their Power 5 counterparts, these smaller schools’ ADs have gotten too bloated. Time to dial it back.
    College football in general is too bloated. Gameday at Husky Stadium at Alaska Airlines Field or whatever it's called feels more like going to a Seahawks game than a college game.

    And 8 pm games. And Thursday and Friday games. And a coach and players who couldn't manage to be thrilled to play in the Rose Bowl. And moving students to the end zone. And the sustainability awards during time outs. And now the SJWs get to finish it off.

    Power 5 AD texted: “You and your colleagues are chasing the wrong story. The virus alone is enough to stop the season. But presidents are terrified of players organizing. It’s the paradigm shift to change amateur sports.”

    “You potentially lose one season with the virus. You lose the entire framework of your mission statement with players organizing. They need time to figure out how to attack it.”

    Jen Cohen is on record saying she wants to support those players anyway she can. You could say that's just her playing the game, but she shouldn't have given the appearance of appeasement.

    I can't say this strongly enough. Kill it. I know that isn't popular with some but college football hasn't felt like college football to me since the BCS started. Horrible game times to fulfill bullshit TV obligations, terrible Jumbotron seizure Gameday experience, asstastic OOC scheduling. The whole thign has jumped the shark. And now the kids demand to get paid. Good, go start a farm league and fuck off. I'm done.

    I am probably not strong enough to NOT watch but I hope they kill it so I can break the habit. I will spend my time off roading and doing stuff i always blew off for going to games or watching games on a crisp fall day.
    So you have a Honda 2001ex quad?

    Sirmon needs this season to survive Sam in 2021.

    Lawrence is the #1 overall pick no matter what.

    The rubber is meeting the road. Either it's the plague or it isn't.

    2-3 months ago I would have been saying how no CFB season would risk ending CFB as we know it because of how it destroys Athletic Departments

    Now no season is inevitable for all the prior reasons + there’s no way in a short time horizon that conferences are going to agree to player demands ... cancelling the season will only make players dig in even further.

    I honestly am not sure if college sports as a whole survive at this point ... it’s going to get way worse before it gets better.

    I didn't see the inevitable as fast as @MikeDamone & @MisterEm , I thought the money was too much as well.

    Fuck it, they're doing it to themselves. Whatever.

    I’m still not convinced the NFL can pull it off as is ... but I never saw CFB in the Fall

    The angle I didn’t see was the players trying to hold the NCAA over the barrel with the leverage they have ... impressive actually
