Re: Players Opting Out (Allegedly)

Couple of questions. If a player opts to sit out, but the season is still played, does said player still remain on scholarship and get all the benefits/perks that come with it? If a player opts to sit, but the season is still played, does said player lose a year of eligibility? If the answer to the...

Re: 2021 and beyond

Wouldn't it make sense for all the NCAA teams (whether we end up with a season in 2020 or not) to just move this year's and all future schedules back one year?

Re: P5 breakoff

To be honest would there really be that much difference than what we currently see? If we are honest with ourselves it is easy to see that there is a big gap between the power 5 and the other conferences. If there was a split I can't see if changing much. The power 5 teams would still want to sched...

Re: Big 12: 9+1 schedule

One reason why I don't expect BYU or USU or any G5 teams to pick up the +1 vs the Big 12 or ACC is that they already have non con games scheduled. They can get out of some of them (or with a reduced payout) due to the conference making them but how do you justify dropping someone and then scheduling...
