We don’t know what will happen with the games yet, but it seems unlikely we will have a full season and the noncon games could easily go away with the ISU game an exception. We could also see some players sit out due to COVID risk. I think he gets a pass almost regardless this year. We will see.

More discussion of that here, especially in light of the Ivy league's announcement to cancel, as well as Stanford's announcement on Fall sports. It's an unfortunate reflection on the USA, but New Zealand is having full stadiums for sports because they controlled the virus with early aggressive testing and contact tracing, and the USA went another route that has lead to, at least by some measures, the worst results in the world. As one of the ESPN guys says, ADs will have a brutal decision to make, and the clock is ticking. Everyone's working off optimism, but that doesn't change reality.

What will the schedule look like?

No one should get anything twisted, American's are the pompous aces in the world. They sure as hell are not going to do something they don't want to. I am reminded of that every time I go to the grocery store and see only half at most wearing a mask
