ACC announced scheduling model for 2020. Seems optimistic but we’ll see.

The season’s first games will take place the week of Sept. 7-12

The 2020 scheduling model includes 11 games (10 plus one: 10 conference and one non-conference)

All non-conference game opponents, selected by the respective school, must be played in the home state of the ACC institution, and all non-conference opponents must meet the medical protocol requirements as agreed upon by the ACC

The 11 games will be played over at least 13 weeks with each team having two open dates

There will be one division

Notre Dame will also play a 10-game conference schedule and be eligible to compete in the 2020 ACC Football Championship Game

All television revenue for the 2020 season, including Notre Dame’s home games broadcast by NBC, will be shared equally by all 15 institutions

The ACC Football Championship Game will be played on either December 12 or 19 at Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte, North Carolina, and will feature the top two teams based upon highest conference-game winning percentage

All 15 teams will continue to be part of the ACC’s bowl selection process; should Notre Dame win the ACC Football Championship Game they would be eligible for the Orange Bowl, if not selected as a College Football Playoff semifinal team

The 2020 ACC Football week-by-week schedule and television selections will be released in the future

Big Ten bails. Maybe in the spring. I wonder how many others will follow suit now.

I was reading there are some conflicting reports about that, but wouldn't be surprised if they actually did shut it down. I wonder how much of it is due to COVID vs. players trying to organize. Probably a combination.

I expect other conferences will follow, but I don't think Spring works. A lot more players will opt out due to NFL combine and proximity to draft, need to compete with college basketball, 2 seasons within the same year, etc. Not to mention there is no guarantee COVID will be any better in the Spring than Fall. Also hard to see how a national championship will work if some teams play in Fall and others in the Spring. If I had to bet, I'd say season will just get cancelled if 2-3 Power 5 conferences shut it down.

Absolutely ridiculous, the overblown paranoia continues. Let em drop, then hopefully the SEC will have the sack the rest of the country should grow and allow every team who wants to play to join the SEC for a year. I won’t miss a single minute of college football or any sport if they all get canceled, but this shit is ridiculous and needs to stop. None of these college players are at any statistical chance of dying from the Wu Tang Flu, and as long as they don’t wheel out people in their 80s with serious pre-existing health conditions the risks to everyone else is minimal as well.

Move the hell on ffs, enough of this paranoid delusional bs.

It's specifically 'about' concerns related to Covid-19 causing heart complications in some cases. It's complicated, here's a pretty good rundown: https://www.espn.com/college-footbal...ason-viability

U-Michigan has not officially communicated “no football tickets”. Detroit media are reporting vaguely that talks are in progress and information “is coming”.

My guess is there will be no tickets. Whether or not there is athletic competition is of no concern to us. We attend one or two games per year for personal/social/emotional reasons, and the athletic competition just happens to be in the same place at the same time as us.

I saw that. It is a valid concern, but it remains suspicious that the news of potential cancellations came within days of some conferences announcing schedules and talk of player demands related to matters other than just safety.

Same for Miami - no specific plans on seating. Presume that is now further on the back burner in light of debates about whether or not there will be a season.
