I have been believing the only way college football works for this fall is for teams to go into the bubble and the same is true of the NFL. As with basketball, the contact is too close and too physical for it to execute outside the bubble. Maybe it will be different regarding needing the bubble late fall or early winter.
I don’t believe they will ruin themselves as they execute. Although COVID is going to inflict significant impact anyway to cut it. Buth Hopefully they will just back up the schedule. The problem with college football is getting them all to back up the schedule when it looks more difficult to execute. It appears the only way to do that is conference by conference unlike having one command structure as they do with the MLB, NFL, and the NBA.
I was hoping MLB could execute outside the bubble, but if they are not going to have fans why not go into the bubble in AZ or Florida. I am still wondering how much of the team infections are due to not executing masks and social distancing and staying away from high risk places is causing those teams issues. They really need to execute the MLB season. Too big of black eye not too.
I saw the SEC USC AD tell his faithful yesterday that they plan to have fans which I think is doable, but he is guessing 20K. I think the fan side of the equation with low enough numbers is easier too execute than pulling off a sport like football outside of the bubble.
