    Revenue pressure will ignite realignment talks along regional lines, prompt discussions about shuffling non conference schedules to compete against nearby schools, drop sports, eliminate post season conference championship competition in non revenue sports as well as possibly moving down a level.

    The biggest pressure will be on mid major FBS conferences, where most schools are already running annual deficits in the millions of dollars range.






    Agree with all, and I think the financial pressures are going to be at all levels. There are D1s, D2s, and D3s that are already barely hanging on. This event will force tough decisions that were likely already looming.

      Good points. Another possible consequence:
      Online classes have been a disruptive force that many traditional brick and mortar schools have somewhat reluctantly offered for primarily lower level courses.
      the pandemic has provided an existence proof thar vast majority of courses can be taught online at prestigious schools.

      potential to reduce costs for brick and mortar schools?
      My nieces and nephews who are currently in both HS and college and my son in middle schoolb hate being taught online. The first couple days they loved, now all of them would love to go back to the traditional way.

        I've had to make the fully-online transition as a college instructor, and even though I generally likes being home, I didn't think I would say that I missed going to my office and actually going to work, but it turns out to be true. Then again, I'm happy to be working at all.

        My alma mater (New Haven) had just gotten approval to push ahead with developing an athletics expansion plan with eyes on a D1 transition. Not so sure that's happening any time soon now.

          Virtually all D1 athletic directors believe there will be a football season of some sort during the 2020-2021 school year. https://watchstadium.com/99-percent-...on-04-21-2020/

            Valid Points Herb. Louisiana Schools were already in dire straits financially before the Coronavirus came and now that oil has came crashing down look for the Southland to either fall apart or shed some of these schools for its own survival.

              I’ve been surprised that La schools have escaped closures or merging before now. You are right. It will only get worse and La is not alone.New Jersey has already cut funding for its public universities.

              Public universities elsewhere are going to take a hit in the form of reduced state funding, for sure. Louisiana is in worst shape financially but there are a number of other states that aren’t in very good fiscal shape. Schools from these states along with private colleges that lack a hefty endowment will be in real trouble if the recession deepens. https://www.insidehighered.com/news/...te-budget-cuts

              Fortunately Texas is in better shape financially than most other states. Texas Public universities in the Southland should be just fine. ACU is a decent endowment and won’t be threatened immediately. I’m not sure about the other private schools or Central Arkansas.

                True, Louisiana isn't alone but they are definitely in need of consolidation. Georgia did a great job in consolidating and streamlining their collegiate system. When you consider that SE La, Nichols and UNO are all about an hour of each other in a triangle it makes absolutely no sense in today's world not to consolidate. I remember some years back when some Mizz Valley Conference schools were recruiting my daughter the Coaches talked about how poorly the Illinois Universities were being funded. Funny the article listed La last followed by Illinois. I think about Chicago State already losing students at an alarming rate and this will probably be the final nail in that coffin.
