    Actually took a screenshot of the UCF facebook post and sent to my wife.

    There are tons of college kids here this month. Spring Break Tennis is a thing.

    No he didn't. They found those emails before he enrolled.

    Didn't know he went to college anywhere actually.

    I would say it’s very likely that the spring game gets cancelled because of corona virus. I’m also expecting that next week we all get told to work from home for the next month and all classes be 100% online

    Long shot but someone on UCF reddit is getting moved out of the dorms cuz of COVID and is afraid to go home for mental health / sexuality reasons. I was wondering if any of y'all knew of any resources or organizations that might be able to help them out.

    Norvell must have found an old GOL playbook during half time. kicking a FG from inside the 5 to go from up 3 to up 6 is such a pussy move in this game. Game was over right then

    I know nothing about the kid from his time here, do we think he's just a whiny bitch who isn't happy unless he's given the job or does he have legit starting QB talent?

    Shocked by that. Thought he would just want to be at Neb. Hes a fine backup but cant see why many schools would bother.

    How much rope does Scott have left with Nebraska?

    As for Vedral, his only option seems to be FCS If he wants to start right away.

    I don't think he has much rope with the delusional Husker fanbase, but maybe the pandemic gives him a pass this year with the school's administration, and their absolutely brutal fucking schedule.

    For the record, this is how he ends the season, every single one of these teams finished last year in the top 15.
    Oct. 31: at Ohio State
    Nov. 7: Penn State
    Nov. 14: at Iowa
    Nov. 21: at Wisconsin
    Nov. 27: Minnesota

    My take is 6-6 would be a fucking miracle, as it assumes he only loses one of the Cincinnati, Purdue, Northwestern and Illinois games.
    Other two games are against South Dakota State and Central Michigan. I think 5 and 7 is more likely.

    Every coach prob gets a pass this year with the pandemic. If we play they are gonna have to hope for 5 wins with that schedule and the year after isnt any better. Very very real possibility of 4 straight without a bowl berth. Not sure how he holds on from that.

    Sucks we're going to lose the year with our best team ever.

    https://www.espn.com/college-footba...-preview-american-athletic-conference-part-ii

    Barring a surprise here or there, UCF basically faces a three-game schedule: North Carolina in Week 1, at Memphis in mid-October, and Cincinnati in late November. How the Knights perform in these likely close games will determine whether they make another NY6 run or have to settle for another mere 10-win year.

    Do you think they aren't going to play at all? They will play in empty stadiums before that I think.
    I know they need the ticket money but I don't think there's anyone that just wants to shit-can the season.
    And I know a lot of it depends on each state's re-opening standards, I feel like they will bend over backwards to make it ok for football

    There will be a season, it just a matter of if we get to see it in person or on TV. Not having a season dooms 3/4 of all schools to bankruptcy and that includes a lot of traditional blue blood programs.

    no fans means they will lose ticket and concession money but they will still get that TV check and that’s better than nothing

    I wonder if these schools will refund season ticket monies if fans aren't allowed. Have to imagine they will, or let fans roll it forward for 2021-2022 season.
    TV check will certainly help keep the schools and conferences afloat.

    I would think they would have to give the option. I doubt any refund would include the “donation” portion though. Probably just the ticket price.

    I wonder if there is insurance on the season like they do with individual games like when we had games canceled because of hurricanes.

    College football is the most complicated of the major sports to come back mainly because you have to remember these are students. And there's just no way they hold college football without actually campuses being open.

    "Hey yea our campus isn't safe enough to open but make those football players come back to play for free" ain't gonna happen. School administrators or politicians are going to step in.

    And if you do make them come back, the idea that they are student athletes is way out the window (even moreso)

    Yeah it’s not a given at all, the money is really not that big when you consider the amount of loss the GDP could potentially face.

    Not to mention the sheer amount of employees and first responders it takes to pull off. I mean, we’ve all seen the meltdowns on rivals when the stadium runs out of like, pretzels, right? Imagine no concessions.

    One of the contingency plans a friend who works for an athletic department passed along is to cut the OOC games and start in October-ish. That’s seems maybe possible but I think it kinda ignores the whole second wave bits.

    I know of at least one major HS powerhouse type program elsewhere in the country that’s already written off fall sports entirely.

    My expectations are low.

    The NFL may be able to pull something off but college football just can't. It's not organized enough. What if just a couple of conferences decides to pull out? What if individual schools within a coference stop while the rest try?

    There's no chance a "normal schedule" happens and the best to maybe hope for is something like a bowl season? Just a bunch of individually scheduled games?
