SBN REACTS: What does everyone think will happen to the CFB/CBB seasons?

SPOILER: Folks aren’t real optimistic

Welcome to SB Nation Reacts, a survey of fans across the NCAA. Each week, we send out questions to the most plugged in Minnesota Golden Gophers fans, and fans across the country. Sign up here to join Reacts.

So. College football. Is it going to happen? If it does, when? These are the questions asked by a recent SB Nation Reacts survey and fans across the country are...let’s say pessimistic.

Just over one-third of fans expect the 2020 season to be canceled entirely. Another 32 percent of fans think the season will be moved to the spring of 2021. The remaining 34 percent of fans think the NCAA will be able to pull off a conference-only or regional schedule. Personally I think those in the last group are way too optimistic, but I admire their zeal.

There is slightly more confidence in the success of the basketball season. The typical season starts in early November, but is proceeded by preseason games. I gotta be honest, I voted that basketball gets canceled too but I have a very low opinion of the ability of others to do simple things like wear masks right now. Also, basketball means both continued COIVD *plus* flu season. /eek

The rest of you voting have more hope. More than a third of fans believe the basketball season will have a delayed start, but will be completed. 27 percent of fans think the basketball season will be conference only and 16 percent think the basketball season will also be canceled. Only 10 percent believe the season will go off without any changes.

Obviously we’ll have to wait and see how things play out, but it’s nice to know I’m not alone in my pessimism.
