Athletic directors warn of dire financial consequences if coronavirus impacts college football in the fall

Spring practice around college football has been heavily impacted by the coronavirus pandemic across the country.

While that has been a big inconvenience to coaches and players, they at least haven’t had their entire season canceled like athletes participating in NCAA spring sports. However, with estimates that it could take months to contain the COVID-19 outbreak, what would happen if football were put on ice just like everything else?

Will the 2020 college football season be canceled?
The potential of not playing college football in 2020 exists, whether you want to admit it or not

What was once unthinkable has quietly become a discussion point and concern throughout college athletics. Will the coronavirus pandemic force the cancellation of the 2020 college football season?

With it already having taken out the NCAA Tournament and the remainder of 2019-20 season, including the College World Series, athletic departments are looking ahead to football as the next major event on the collegiate sports calendar.

"I am not trying to be overly pessimistic, but I'm doubtful we're going to have a 2020 football season, NFL or college," said Warren K.

I don't think it's a foregone conclusion that we're all back over the summer."

From a view more than five months from kickoff on Aug. 29, that concept is hard to comprehend.

Kirk Herbstreit said he doesn’t expect there to be a 2020 NFL or CFB season.

Wonder how that will effect recruiting, and wonder what some seniors like Shane or Reggie would do.

Recruiting is shut down indefinitely, isn't it? No contact at all?

White house presentation has 0 covid-19 deaths in the USA by mid July. I don't know how scarred we'll all be by then.

Even in the best case scenario, attendance will surely take a big hit.
