Report: Big Ten considering opening 2020 season Thanksgiving weekend. Thoughts?
  • All I know is ... if the Big Ten changes, and only the Pac-12 is left sitting on its hands while other conferences play, the Pac-12 will be replaced in the "Power Five" listing by the AAC (54%, 79 Votes)
  • Uh, no. It's wishful thinking from some fans and pundits (and perhaps a few Big Ten coaches). The Big Ten has already announced the postponement will not be revisited (37%, 53 Votes)
  • Can you imagine the liability issues if the Big Ten changed its mind, and, heaven forbid, there is a serious outbreak? Can you say "major lawsuit"? I knew you could (9%, 13 Votes)

Report: Pac-12 considering a six-game spring schedule, with five conference and one non-conference (v. Big 10?) game. Thoughts?
  • Really? Six games - why bother? How silly will that look if the other Power-Five conferences play eight- or nine-game schedules and crown a champion? Pac-12 is quickly sliding towards oblivion (41%, 53 Votes)
  • I like it. As long as CU is playing the Pac-12 South and not set up with some form of a murderer's row (Oregon, Washington, USC, Cal, Utah) ... and gets Michigan State as its Big Ten opponent! (34%, 43 Votes)
  • I can't see it happening. The only way it would make sense is for the South to play the South, and the North to play the North, but Cal and Stanford will go nuts not getting to play the L.A. schools. (25%, 32 Votes)

Eight Nebraska football players sue the Big Ten to reverse canceled season. Thoughts?
  • Nebraska being Nebraska. Nice to see that all of eight players (including the long-snapper!) signed on to the lawsuit. Were the other 77 scholarship players in class (sarcasm font)? (42%, 84 Votes)
  • Nice look to have Nebraska players suing when the school is laying off athletic department personnel (way to use all of that Big Ten TV money, Cornhuskers!) (36%, 72 Votes)
  • I like it. The Big Ten did a terrible job at handling the cancellation. Was there a vote? What was the medical evidence? The students deserve answers (22%, 44 Votes)

Should a high school senior graduating in December be allowed to play for the Pac-12/Big Ten in the spring?
  • Yes. If they are capable of making a team as an eighteen year old (and, with the current rules, not burn a year of eligibility), then why not? (44%, 70 Votes)
  • No. There are enough issues surrounding the 2020/21 season as it is. Worrying about a 17/18-year old being physically/mentally being able to play? They should nix that idea right from the start (34%, 53 Votes)
  • They should ... but they won't be able to. Think the SEC/ACC/Big 12 will allow the Big Ten/Pac-12 to actually have an advantage on anything? Never gonna happen ... (22%, 35 Votes)

Which of the following potential spring schedules seems to you to be the most feasible?
  • Brian Howell's proposal - Play six games: five division foes and one game against the North (CU would play the 5th place team from the North, Washington State) (51%, 78 Votes)
  • Keep the 8-game (or perhaps 9-game) Pac-12 only schedule. Start as early as possible to preserve fall '21 season (perhaps another 8- or 9-game conference only season) (34%, 52 Votes)
  • Three pods - Northwest; California; Mountain - with a round-robin (play a home-and-home with Arizona schools and Utah). Pod "champions" plus the team with the next best record play on (15%, 24 Votes)
