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

Should the leaders of the Power 5 just blow everything the NCAA has created up and start over? A small majority of fans surveyed in the last SBN Reacts think we’re not quite there yet. Despite all of the decisions the conferences have made on their own this summer and the complete lack of leadership from the NCAA, 53% of folks think this isn’t the breaking point.

Almost two-thirds of fans said it’s not worth playing football games in the spring, a plan floated by some in order to have games played by all schools during the current academic year, if next season’s games are affected.

When it comes to how schools and conferences will handle the potential basketball season this winter, a vast majority of folks surveyed don’t expect to see a “bubble” (like the NBA is using) employed to solve the COVID problems facing football. Only 39 percent of fans think there will be any kind of a bubble for the NCAA basketball season.
