OK, So 2020 College Sports are Done. Now What?

Recommended Posts

While one set of questions about how to open are coming to a close we will soon see a whole new set of questions coming into focus. Some of the questions will seem the same like how do we open but that momentous question of today will be an afterthought this spring. The focus will shift to questions like:

What will be the eligibility of this year seniors? Do they get an extra year? Only seniors or all current athletes?

What do you do with incoming freshman as roster sizes are locked in?
 

Will all scholarships that are current and those currently offered be honored?

 

Many more Questions to come...

 

Those are the easy questions but there will be many more. Seeing as everything will eventually revolve around money how does this get financed onto of the current financial crisis? Somewhere, somehow someone is going to get screwed out of what was their opportunity for a higher education and future for themselves and their family. 1,000’s

The economic, institutional, and societal fallout of this is being grossly underestimated.

The NFL is next. We seem to be following a Roman History script...

Like in the spring, I'd expect seniors will get an extra year.  Transfers who were going to sit out should have that year counted already.

All current scholarships honored.  Currently offered should be honored, if accepted.

Temporary roster expansions (across all fall sports).  

Just a WAG

College Kids doing remote learning (no students on campus).    They probably won't be finding any part time jobs, either. 

K-12 Kids doing remote / reduced learning (no students at schools, or a reduced schedule).   Kids doing Zoom all day.

No sporting events (one of the few things that bonds people of different backgrounds, is a huge part of the economy, and keeps people placated).

Reduced extra curricular for children (are children sports leagues not going forward this fall???? -- not sure).

 

My guess is that people will focus more on the election, become more agitated, and will riot more.   Doesn't look good.

Maybe this is what some people in power want to see happen??

If you want there to be football in the spring - or ever again for that matter - get vaccinated. 

Great.  Where can we all get vaccinated?

Same place you get your flu shot, circa January 2021.

I will get vaccinated once the medical pros deem it safe.  I will not be taking medical advice from political types.

I get a Flu Shot every year.  I'm a big believer in Flu Shots.

But I'm not aware of any COVID Vaccine being approved yet.   Some reports say it is 2 years off.

No question. I need to hear it from multiple medical experts that the vaccine is safe and effective. Everything I’m reading says we are on course for one by January. Fingers crossed.

Where are you reading that? I’ve not seen anything that says we shouldn’t expect one by January.

The fall sports for HS have been moved to winter around here and my youngest is playing youth soccer where they are having practices but not allowing games on Saturdays.  Dumb.

There are *tons* of college only towns that are pretty much +++++ed.

The NCAA didn't want to give Penn State the death penalty because of what it would do the surrounding community--but now there's tons of communities that are going to have like no employment for a lot longer.

Well, like you, I am hoping for the best.   We really need it.

There are so many conflicting reports on this.  I'd say an extreme best case scenario would be January.

When will we have a coronavirus vaccine?

A vaccine would normally take years, if not decades, to develop. Researchers hope to achieve the same amount of work in only a few months.

Most experts think a vaccine is likely to become widely available by mid-2021, about 12-18 months after the new virus, known officially as Sars-CoV-2, first emerged.

That would be a huge scientific feat and there are no guarantees it will work.

Four coronaviruses already circulate in human beings. They cause common cold symptoms and we don't have vaccines for any of them.
