NCAA Board of Governors likely to decide on Fall Sports Championships

The NCAA Board of Governors is scheduled to meet on Friday and there is growing speculation that they may shut down all fall sports championship events. The board is primarily made up of presidents at Division I universities across the country.

It's worth noting the board does not have the power to shut down fall sports seasons in general, but by choosing to cancel the championships, they could theoretically force the hand of conferences to forgo playing any games this fall.

The NCAA does not have the power to eliminate the Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS) postseason in football because they don't own the College Football Playoff. There's no such thing as a "NCAA Football Championship". The conferences run the playoff and the decision to alter or cancel the postseason lies in their hands. However, the NCAA does own the FCS, Division II and Division III Football Tournaments and it could cancel those on Friday.

Some Conferences may start the season but none will likely end their seasons. It will probably "fizzle out" and they will be forced to accept the fact that they cannot continue. Also, with Dr. Fauci recently stating the a Covid-19 vaccine probably won't be available until at least a few months into 2021, I think the earliest we will see College Football again is the 2021 Fall Camp and the 2021 Fall Football season.

Ain’t happening with the P5. Their Star draft eligible players not going to suit Up in the spring. Hell, some bypassing the Fall.

I was references that to the other FCS schools. Right now they are 8 out of 13 conferences doing this, so look for a spring FCS playoff and possibly a spring Celebration Bowl.
