    And perhaps Stanford and USC as both are private. Now if Boise State were to do well in such a scenario, how would the BCS look at them and all those that say they would be .500 in a major conference?

    I also wonder how HSU now is doing as they cited financial reasons for cutting football.
    I have not heard anything about Azusa Pacific. Will they play this season or will the other GNAC teams have to fill 2 games to replace AP since AP is the only D2 school in Cali to play football?

      The leadership of the Cali State system thinks that one size fits all approach is the way to go along with Gov. Grusom Newson. Just hope the other System does not follow suit. The pressure is on both systems now to either play in the fall or not! I just hate seeing the way Cali is going. It will be interesting to watch and see what happens in that state of confusion.

        Until there is a vaccine, I don't see football being played. They might allow games being played without fans.

          I am Just hoping USC and Stanford tell the other Cali schools that they are going ahead to play football. The USC athletic director says that they are going ahead with the planned schedule for the 2020 season. So the Alabama game at ATT Stadium is still planned. Sorry West Florida, TCU has the inside track if USC can not make it.

            Can you see football players wearing masks for the entire time they are on the field. I put a scenario on the LSC board with teams playing each other. I could expand it even further. I just don't see football happening this year as much as I would like to see it.

              College football will try to play, but will likely be undone by choir infection example. One asymtomatic choir member infected large percentage of choir that was actually practicing social distancing. A biologist pointed to this example of close heavy respiration being a transmission danger for certain sports. You can imagine how one asymtomatic false negative and heavy breathing lineman could infect entire line of scrimmage and quarantine both teams for two weeks.

              This only needs to happen a few times for conferences to give up on even a limited conference schedule and revert to even more limited exhibition schedule, if at all. I would love to see mass testing allow for full conference schedule, but I don’t believe frequent testing of thousands of players, coaches, support staff and officials (assuming testing supplies, labs and accurate tests are even available and properly administered) is going to prevent choir infection example from ending full schedule.

              3-4 games might be the best teams can accomplish unless an antibody serum becomes available to change the transmission equation. The llama serum looks promising but is months away from approval for use in humans. Spring college football with a serum is doable, but full fall football schedule based on testing alone is doomed. We will have to be satisfied with NFL football that can probably test their way to playing given their financial resources and smaller rosters.

                  Most definitely it was too early for that decision. We may end up in the same spot, but several months in advance in this fluid situation seems a bit early.

                    We are in a wait and see pattern on what the schedule will look like but I do know that the plan is for games at some point. It may look different and may be a more regional schedule but I know they are coming up with contingency plans.

                      Also looking at the stats for Kittitas County and what Inslee is saying, it could be one of the first to open in the state with both a low infection rate among the population and a low population total and could be good news for CWU. Neighboring Yakima County though is being hit a lot harder.

                        Could be viewed as good news or bad I guess... this just got passed this afternoon. NCAA D2 minimum and maximum games for each sport through 2020-21. They are expecting to play 10 football games (minimum of 7)

                            Interested to see how this affects all the teams who have 11 games scheduled (currently a majority of D2).

                              Heard a news blip one biomed company is working on a test strip that is placed on your tongue and in seconds lets you know results.
                              I'd buy that stock

                                I can understand the minimums, but why have a maximum? Will it allow teams to break contracts without incurring a fee? Maybe that's why?
