Ivy League Is Considering These Two Major Changes To 2020 Football Season

According to several sources, the Ivy League is formulating two plans, which could be finalized and released in the next few weeks...

The plan has two options, one of which is more radical than the other.

The first would be to open the 2020 season in late September with a 7-game schedule comprised of only conference opponents.

The Ivy League is already different than its FCS brethren by playing only a 10 game (no playoffs) regular season. This plan would eliminate the non-conference opponents and conclude a week before Thanksgiving.

The second plan, which is gaining momentum because of the increasing number of positive Covid-19 cases in the country, would shut down football until next spring, with a start up (for practice) in March and another 7-game (conference opponents only) beginning in April and concluding in mid-May.

These plans are not unique to the Ivy. Most of all of the Power 5 and Group of 5 FBS conferences have similar contingency plans in place.

I actually the like the idea of spring football. I think it would be cool to mix it up.

Every year a few kids die of heat exhaustion. In fall camp. It's highly unlikely a single player dies of COVID. This is insane.
