I've said it before and I'll say it again. I'll be shocked if there are ANY publicly attended major sports in 2020. By that I mean pro football, basketball, baseball, hockey, and soccer as well as major college football and basketball.

About a week ago I read that Iowa State is limiting home crowd to 30,000. Stadium holds 60,000.
They announced that a few weeks ago. Basically they said you have to have a season ticket to attend, so it was a really good strategy to sell their last 5 or 6,000 season tickets.

I'm putting my odds of college football in the fall at around 20% right now. Too many vectors...nevermind the fact that these are unpaid athletes. Just trying to face the realities of an abysmal 2020.....Sorry for the debbie downer.

At this point I'd be happy with just having my 2020 season tickets transferred to 2021... I don't really see my family wanting to attend any games this fall unless we can actually get a handle on Covid.

You said 'major' sports, didn't you?? If an event routinely draws more than any football stadium in the country, it seems like that would qualify as a 'major' sporting event.
YEP. NASCAR is the largest spectator sport. They just have a lot fewer events in a lot larger stadiums. I know it is a different situation with a lot more room for distancing, but I still would have said it wasn't happening before realizing it already has happened.

I think we're looking at a drop dead date of Friday July 31st, & the SEC will undoubtedly be the last one to make the call.

I haven't seen the possibility discussed a lot, but I don't think it's far fetched that you have a B1G & PAC12 not play at all, & the SEC still plays. How strange would that be?

I also expect the surge in Texas to result in Austin & the U. calling loudly for no season, & we know what happens when Texas throws its' weight around in the Big 12.:angry:
