College Football 2020

The NCAA is moving closer to allowing Division I athletes to earn money from endorsements and sponsorship deals they can strike on their own as early as next year.

Recommended rule changes that would clear the way for athletes to earn money from their names, images and likeness are being reviewed by college sports administrators this week before being sent to the NCAA Board of Governors, which meets Monday and Tuesday.

If adopted, the rules would allow athletes to make sponsorship and endorsement deals with all kinds of companies and third parties, from car dealerships to concert promoters to pizza shops, according to a person who has reviewed the recommendations. The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity Thursday because the details were still being discussed and debated.

The recommendations are expected to form the foundation for legislation the NCAA hopes to pass next January so it can take effect in 2021. Changes could still be made before January.

No school-branded apparel or material could be used by athletes in their personal endorsement deals, according to the recommendations reviewed by the person who spoke to the AP. Athletes would be required to disclose financial terms of contracts to their athletic departments, along with their relationships with any individuals involved.

Athletes would be allowed to enter into agreements with individuals deemed to be school boosters, the person said.

The NCAA would create a mechanism to evaluate potential deals for fair market value and spot possible corruption. An athlete could compromise their eligibility for failing to disclose details of a financial agreement or relationship, the person said.

If I get an NCAA football or basketball game in 2021, I will squeal like a little girl at a One Direction concert.

That said, it'll likely be 2022 at the earliest, but I'll still squeal then.

I don’t get the gif :(

If there’s no season this year I’ll be extremely sad. I may have to dust off my college football bowl game and run a league or something just to occupy myself. I can stand no NFL. I can’t stand no college football. :(

Colleges take in so much money for room and board I don't know how feasible it is for a lot of schools to remain online-only in the fall semester.  Moreover, a lot of athletic departments will fold entirely if football is gone.

Colleges are freaking out about students just taking the fall off or getting gen-ed so they'll do everything they can to bring them back but the level of resistance is going to be extremely high. And then there's the looming threat of a student testing positive after being at a crowded campus event and what do you do? Now you can't send them home where they can infect their whole towns. Leaving them there is prison. It's a disaster. There's no way they can do anything but online-only school for the fall.

This might pop the higher ed bubble and we'll likely see a ton of athletic department budgets shrunk as a result.

But for the immediate future, I cannot envision any scenario where college football happens this year.

Mark Emmert said he can't envision sports happening on empty college campuses only for the SEC and Big 12 commissioners to immediately put out statements to the contrary...the SEC commissioner going as far as to say that SEC football will be going forward no matter what as multiple SEC schools have already stated their intent to reopen by fall.  I believe LSU's athletic director also pointed out that Joe Burrow was barely on campus outside of practice and games last season because he took his remaining courses online.

I really think that some of these conferences envision having the entire team quarantined in a dorm where all they do is practice, play, and take online classes.  And I damn sure know I wouldn't want to be put through that if I wasn't getting any money out of the deal.

Moreover, they're in for a boatload of Title IX issues unless they opened up the fall women's programs under similar guidelines.

College athletes are known for their adherence to strict rules so I don't see any risk quarantining them all together in a dorm with no outside contact.

Posted it in the main coronavirus thread but California already moved the fall semester to online only for the fall, so along with that their fall athletic programs have been suspended too.  Though most of these schools are in D2, it's still the first in what will be many dominoes to fall for colleges.  California definitely seems like it'll be the first state to mandate that all colleges move to online so that would mean Stanford, Cal, UCLA, etc all gone.  And other states are bound to follow suit.

NCAA will need to decide how they want to attack eligibility.  They gave spring athletes an extra year of eligibility though some schools refused and told their seniors it was time to move on with their lives.  Will that same offer be extended to fall athletes?  And since some projections are that fall 2021 is the earliest anyone can reasonably expect the majority of people to be vaccinated, spring 2021 sports might be scrapped too.  There'd be too big of a backlog.

More broadly some students might eligibility matters into their own hands and take a semester/year off of school.  Not just athletes but students as a whole.  If I valued the college experience, I'd have no reservations about taking a break instead of sacrificing what should be a memorable time in my life.  Even if you don't care about the experience, I have no idea why an incoming freshman wouldn't just take their gen ed stuff through a community college at this point.  If it's all online anyway you may as well take the route that will cause the least amount of debt.

University of Arkansas Medical Sciences has written up expert recommendations for collegiate staff and players to follow.

They've done one for high school athletics as well.

Clemson WR Justyn Ross to have spinal surgery and miss the season, football career in doubt.

Was expected to be a first round pick in the 2021 draft.

Yeah that’s seriously shitty for him. I mean, it’s great they found it before it caused serious issues but still. He absolutely would’ve been a first round pick in the 2021 draft. Hopefully he can recover and safely play again next year.

The Notre Dame/Navy game which was due to be played in Dublin, Ireland is now (obviously) going to take place stateside instead.

For the first time ever it’ll be in Annapolis. The game has traditionally taken place in US cities with Naval bases or Ireland, because the stadium at the Naval Academy isn’t large enough to hold the expected crowd, but negotiations to play in DC apparently fell through.

Exactly. That’s kind of the thought process. Why pay the Redskins however much to play in their stadium when they can play in Annapolis since the main reason they haven’t played there is most likely not a factor this year.

So, are we going to talk about Dabo Sweeney or no?

I don't have a ton to add. The story wasn't terribly surprising (not the first coach to have a heated gamer moment) and Swinney sweeping it all under the rug was classic head coach stuff. I don't expect Dabo to be in-touch with anything outside of what happens on a football field and while this doesn't absolve him I wasn't taken aback by anything.

Like, he should be better but I doubt he will be better. He has no real motivation to self-reflect on anything because he's surrounded by people who likely preach the prosperity gospel and he's certainly prospering.

It comes on the heels of some very tone-deaf stuff in response to everything going on in the country, on top of his vacation during the lockdown, at some point it's not just 'aw shucks', like, he's either an idiot or problematic.

It's funny, because, by all accounts, Nick Saban is a stand-up person, but everyone hates him (I know it's mostly just sports hate because he's very good), and Dabo is a low-key shitty dude and everyone excuses it because he's so folksy.

      Been following the story out of Ohio State about their former doctor and am wondering what punishment they are going to face allowing him to basically molest how many athletes over 20+ years. According to the ESPN article I'm reading, it is worse than the Strauss issue from the other year and could easily be over 250 victims of the dead sicko. It is said some of the victims even went onto playing in the NFL.
