    Is College Football happening this year?

    I see PAC 12 players are threatening to hold out. Every conference seems to have their own plan. Thereís critical millions at stake but the players donít see a nickel.

    Can they be persuaded to play this year while others are being asked to stay home? I think they know they have leverage but itís the path to the pros

    Who knows? It appears that they're opening up K-12 schools, so I would guess yes. I also see that there's pro baseball on TV and other sports, and that's now.

    Some places are, but a lot aren't. Likewise some colleges are full remote to start the year. Does the lack of other students make it more or less likely to see football though?

    I'm just saying yes because of bracketing, if it's yes on the K-12 and it's yes on pro sports, I'll say yes on college football, which is between the 2.

    I very much doubt it. They may try but young people being young people Iím not sure how long that lasts.

    They can't even get professional athletes to distance enough to avoid COVID (see: Marlins, Cardinals).

    OrganizedChaos21 said it well. If they can't even get professional athletes, grown men who have children at home, to pull their heads out of their asses, what makes anyone think that they'll be able to get college kids to do it?

    I believe the SEC will try to at least have league play. Itís their entire bankroll

    They can try to make them but unless you seriously think you can play in the NFL why would you play? Thatís a ton of risk for kids who donít get paid.

    If I remember correctly, the amount of D-1 players who make the NFL any given year is 2%. If schools start trying to come for scholarships, they had better make sure that they are squeaky clean or they will be opening a can of worms.

    That's exactly why I don't think that would happen. They pull those scholarships and give them to who? The players have some leverage in this. A college team getting sick is going to look a lot worse than a pro team getting sick. Schools don't want to deal with pissed off alums and boosters over that.
