DeWine says that the Ivy decision will not impact his decision for Ohio. At this point, college football is still "likely", but who will be at the games is still uncertain.

watch DeWine's Virus update replay today. I am told he says the new money for education can be used for athletics.

I love sports as much as anyone but never at the expense of education.

I see us going the same as the Big-10 and Pac-10, with conference only, especially since most Mountain schools play Pac-10 & they in turn also play MVFC schools. However for YSU, I see no reason to cancel Akron, unless the MAC makes a move. Duquesne is a short drive from Pittsburgh, so that should go as well. EKU is out

The MAC plans to move forward as scheduled by competing in as many non-conference games as possible. What leaves Steinbrecher scratching his head, however, is the timeline of the Big Ten's choice that puts his member schools further in the hole. "Our interest was in playing a full schedule," Steinbrecher said.

I just don't see the Penguins taking the field in 2020.  Not trying to be negative but I'm being a realist.

Without a widely available vaccine by "game time" I would tend to agree.  IF we have a vaccine, they LET'S GO GUINS!
I don't get the "conference only" concept.  It is like you can't mingle with strangers, but it is OK to mingle with friends??!?!  Like friends can't carry the virus?  Playing Northern Iowa is OK, but paying Iowa State would be too dangerous?!?!?  WTF is anybody thinking about with this?!?!?1

I agree with the conference only thinking, makes no sense to me. It's like they feel that they have to do something, but they do not have the balls to pull the plug. Can't imagine the pressure the folks in charge are getting from all sides.

a$$uming that a vaccine is ready by then I like the idea of moving games to the spring. Of course scheduling lodging, transportation and such would be a nightmare.
