Good morning, GGN! College football programs are beginning to shut down and/or limit schedules. The Ivy league, Case Western, and other programs have shut down all fall sports. Larger revenue programs like the Big Ten and the Pac-12 Conferences are limiting football games to conference games only. With COVID-19 surging across much of the southern half of the country, college and pro football seasons appear to be in increasing jeopardy. The NFL and the NFLPA are locked in discussions on how to proceed with the season safely, as well as how to deal with the financial fallout resulting from loss of fans at the stadiums. Those discussions are expected to be difficult, particularly with respect to who bears the brunt of financial losses, and how the salary cap will be adjusted. Despite the opening of training camps scheduled for a little more than two weeks from today, it is unclear whether the many issues being raised will be resolved in time to open, or if an NFL season will even take place this year. The next few weeks should be very interesting and consequential.
