College football has some decisions to make, and we might not see any kind of uniformity among the various conferences. Former Sportscenter anchor and long-time radio host Dan Patrick offered up some choice nuggets on Monday about pending conference decisions.
Patrick heard from a source that the Big Ten and Pac-12 are going to cancel their seasons, and the decision will happen on Tuesday. Patrick is reporting 12 of the 14 Big Ten presidents have voted against having a fall college football season. Additionally, the ACC and Big 12 are on the fence about their decision. Finally, the SEC is trying to get a delay to get teams to join them. Specifically, they’re trying to convince the ACC and/or Big 12 to join them in a fall season.
Patrick used the word cancel, but did not specify about a potential spring season if the Big Ten and/or Pac-12 decided to try and make that work. As Pro Football Talk noted, that could theoretically open the door to a nearly eight-month long college football season split up based on geography. When you have a useless central governing body like the NCAA, this kind of chaos is the result.
