    ENMU made a wise decision. I HATE it, but it is very wise. Hopefully the rest will be smart enough to follow.

    UTPB's schedule has also disappeared. https://utpbfalcons.com/sports/football/schedule

    WT is neither shown on North American's nor Colorado School of Mines schedules.

    So who is paying the big bucks for season tickets this year?

    Looks like Nesbitt's schedule at OUAZ has been wiped clean - at least for now.

    I think you are right. If a season does start in the fall, I seriously doubt it would finish.

    I am now not even optimistic about the NFL having/finishing a season.
    Given the problems MLB is having, I agree.

    This article indicates WT may not play before 9/26. If so, the schedule should reflect that, but doesn't. https://www.wtamu.edu/news/2020/07/j...dest-part.html

    That could mean the LSC teams cannot play each other until 9/26, but we have 2 games scheduled before that, one with North American, and the other with UTPB. https://gobuffsgo.com/sports/football/schedule

    The real answer is probably "I don't know, nobody knows.".

    It looks like the NAIA teams in the SAC conference were given a green light to play three games this fall and 6 in the spring. I assume they can play their out of conference games in the Fall. WT and UTPB both have games scheduled against those schools, not sure who else

    What about fewer games -- conference-only -- with two week intervals between them?

    whether or not the playoffs happen, the new rules for postseason eligibility was what I was referring to.

    As much as I hate to say it and enjoy college football I agree with this statement. Even MLB is getting backed up with teams suspending their season and probably the hurricane affecting more games.

    Are kids signing off on any type of COVID waiver to practice and play this year? My thought process is if a kid tragically passes from COVID either in practice or the season and the family sues coaches, the school, and the NCAA. Maybe I am overthinking it.

    Either way shut down the sports and give it a shot in 2021.

    There is such little information about North American. This may be the first year they have fielded a team. I can't find what level they are, but would guess NAIA. Their schedule is weak, except for WT and Ferris.
    I did some digging a couple of days ago. If I am remembering right they hope to apply to the NAIA in the future.

    The drop off between North American , Texas Wesleyan, or Amarillo HS might not be that big. When TAMUK played Texas Wesleyan a couple of years ago, they almost looked like a club football team and that's what this North American outfit looks like.

    Round robin for another 3 games, it was done for two years not so long ago. Might as well, the GNAC does it every year
