For now. That buys an extra month or so of time. I still will only believe it when I see it.

From the Big Ten statement.  Note the use of the word "if."

"To that end, the Big Ten Conference announced today that if the Conference is able to participate in fall sports (men’s and women’s cross country, field hockey, football, men’s and women’s soccer, and women’s volleyball) based on medical advice, it will move to Conference-only schedules in those sports. Details for these sports will be released at a later date, while decisions on sports not listed above will continue to be evaluated. By limiting competition to other Big Ten institutions, the Conference will have the greatest flexibility to adjust its own operations throughout the season and make quick decisions in real-time based on the most current evolving medical advice and the fluid nature of the pandemic."

At least the Big 10 has some good baked-in excuses why it can't contend for a national championship
I think this is all going to fail spectacularly in all sports and demonstrate exactly how extensively our governments mismanaged this

Do they somehow think they'll be able to quarantine over 1,000 college students in 11 states? This solution isn't really any better than going forward with no changes.

I think they see the writing on the wall for having no season at all and put this out there partly as a placeholder, and partly to show their fans that they are trying to salvage something.

Not really. Ohio State would have been a top three team coming into this season and has been to multiple playoffs.
What, you still throwing up bricks? What is this, a Masons convention? Clank, clank! I need, like, a welding torch to play in this league! I got an idea, let's just stop right now and gather up all these bricks and let's build a shelter for the homeless so maybe your mother will have a place to stay

Does anyone here actually believe there will be college football this fall?

If so, why?

If so, the TV money paychecks are too great to pass up.

The Big Ten has implied that if they can't do it safely, they won't play.  My guess is that they are working their ass off right now to make it happen, but it's a complex problem.

No. Still, it wouldn't shock me if the SEC holds out longer than anyone else (for a couple of obvious reasons), possibly even to the point of having full practices and scrimmages, until widespread outbreaks force them to cancel.

Kirk Ferentz knew two years ago there were racial tensions in the football program....and did nothing.

He should be retiring after this season.  This report is really not defensible.

UNLV may play TCU at Allegiant Stadium on Aug. 29. The Rebels were supposed to play California in Las Vegas on Aug. 29, and the Horned Frogs were supposed to play at California on Sept. 5

We just don't know enough for this to be worth it for anyone, let alone college athletes with no financial incentive to do so. Let alone college football players, who are more likely to be obese and thus have an additional risk factor.
