The NCAA does not host a football playoff. There is no breaking away from anything.

Sec and acc announced plans to play. They won’t play. It’s all getting cancelled Tuesday. The power conferences are trying to show they have a plan, it’s not enough.
Ncaa will cancel on Tuesday. Only question is whether power 5 is confident enough to break away and play anyway which is a pretty big risk to take with no ncaa umbrella protection
Can college football be played if regular students are not on campus?
Does this further the argument that football players are pros? Power 5 of course.
No. Are track and XC runners pros because they are required to be on campus 2 weeks before other students? Are they pros because they have to he there over Christmas when other students are not there?
Ncaa big guy apologies for not being clearer- I was referring to the other sports at the P5. The football situation is indeed a separate entity. I think P5 will have a difficult time selling playing football but not there other sports in the fall which is why I think they will either follow the ncaa decision or have to consider a full mutiny against them.

The Power 5 Schools will still make LOTS OF MONEY, Notre Dame with the ACC announced they Will Play Conference Games starting on September 12th and SEC announced Today as Well. At Least now we know for sure, 2 of the Major Conferences WILL PLAY THIS YEAR, that should make the NCAA a lot of Money, Games like Notre Dame VS Clemson, Alabama, LSU, Georgia, Florida, Auburn etc all playing basically a Round Robin, even without fans in the Stadium, The TV Ratings will be phenomenal due to so many things being shut down there will not be much competition.
The ACC and SEC must have been able to get most of the players to sign Liability Waivers, or else this could not happen (I was worried they would not be able to play as Many/Most Linemen have an underlying Condition (Obesity), but apparently it has all been worked out, The Main thing is we will have NCAA Football starting September 12th (AT LEAST The ACC and SEC playing basically Conference Round Robins).
This isn’t going to turn out well. Just being a lineman is a pre existing condition. Those guys need oxygen if a play goes longer than 5 seconds.
Why do you say NCAA champs will be cancelled Tuesday? I know there is a meeting taking place but they’ll probably just delay the decision again.
