ppete1975, thank you! I knew football paid for a lot of the other sports programs like volleyball, lacrosse, etc. But I hadn't given any thought to the prolonged effect on colleges programs if there wasn't a college football season this year. It very well could be very damaging. Thank you. Oh what a crazy year this is.no problem. So all college sports outside of basketball are paid for by college football. Many of those programs are ran in the red (deep red) as it is. So no money coming in they will have to cut many of the sports, maybe even football. Many of the california schools are already in trouble (stanford ucla are two), the SEC for one is going to do everything possible to play football due to the billions of money it generates, where the loss of money would be catastrophic. As far as schools ending football, dont think the power 5 conferences. Think of the teams outside of it.
Im not the best at explaining it, but when my sources do... its terrifying if you love college sports.
BTW the power 5 has been screwing up everything from the beginning.. instead of being unified and basically leaving the ncaa and starting their own thing, they have stuck in their own conferences.
