How the California State University system's decision to go online only in fall could affect college football

White, who oversees the system's 23 universities, announced that its campuses will hold fall classes almost exclusively online due to the lingering effects of the coronavirus pandemic. The decision made the CSU system - the largest four-year public university system in the country with more than 480,000 undergraduate students - the first to tell its students they would not be returning to campus for the fall semester.

That does not bode well for the normal return of football in the fall, especially when coupled with recent comments from Mountain West commissioner Craig Thompson and NCAA president Mark Emmert. In an interview with the Mountain West Network, Thompson said there would be no athletics taking place until campuses are open and fully operational.

"Unless they're in full mode with dormitories and housing and all of the other facilities are open, we won't have college athletics," Thompson said April 21. "We will not have college athletics until the campuses are open."

"All of the Division I commissioners and every president that I've talked to is in clear agreement: If you don't have students on campus, you don't have student-athletes on campus," Emmert said. "That doesn't mean it has to be up and running in the full normal model, but you've got to treat the health and well-being of the athletes at least as much as the regular students. So if a school doesn't reopen, then they're not going to be playing sports. It's really that simple."

UF keeps sending me emails for three game ticket combo's. I doubt those games would even be played, much less in front of a crowd. As a former season ticket holder, I'm sure I will get a lot more emails along with every other person who ever bought tickets but I don't see us going to games.

I think in the Southeast we're seeing fall semesters rearranged to start pretty early in August, end at Thanksgiving, so that everyone won't go home and come back with infections to spread for Christmas.
