In just a few hours, the entire college football world was turned on its head. News broke that the Big Ten would be canceling their fall schedule, quickly followed by players announcing plans to form a football players association, then the Pac-12 following suit with their own postponement.
As the remaining Power Five conferences try and figure out their plans, fans were asked what they think will happen to the 2020 season. According to SB Nation’s Reacts results, more than 80 percent of fans think the entire college football season will be canceled or postponed.
Keep in mind this question went out on Monday, so it’s possible many people answered not knowing what the Big 10 and Pac-12 were going to do.
Whether related or not, players continue their push to create some form of a union. Roughly two-thirds of fans said they would support a college football players association, although some would only do so if it meant games were played this season.
There is still a ways to go with the support for players organizing, but at at 50% support that’s certainly better than nothing. I’m not fooling anyone with my opinion, I’ve been supportive of players and their ability to organize for years, and I’m a strong supporter of the Name, Image and Likeness laws coming out.
Either way, it’s going to be interesting to watch the coming news cycles as this all plays out.
