There’s no such thing as a football offseason goes, and that’s never been more true with the coronavirus. The question of whether a college football season will even happen has accelerated over the past few weeks as we barrel toward the end of summer, with the Pac-12 and Big 10 reportedly ready to cancel their seasons.
Could the ACC be far behind? I welcome on ESPN.com’s Andrea Adelson to talk about the latest developments on this, and even Andrea admits to me right at the open that she’s trying her best to keep up with all of the news.
I also chat with Andrea about a far range of topics, including her thoughts on an 11-game ACC season, whether college athletes will continue to band together, and if there actually is a season, who she thinks will win the ACC. (Unfortunately, she doesn’t have Syracuse playing in a bowl game in this scenario.)
TJO editor in chief Brad Bierman then calls in and we delve further into the potential for the ACC to cancel its season. As he reported yesterday, his sources are saying that the ACC will follow suit with the other Power 5 conferences, and postpone the entire 2020 football season.
Brad’s closing thought centers on whether COVID-19 will eventually impact the basketball season, while I talk about SU’s most recent basketball offer to 2022 Albany center Riley Mulvey.
