There’s no better time to kill off college football. Forever. Today the Pac-12 is going to vote on whether or not it should stage football games this season, or if it should go the way of the MAC and the Mountain West and postpone the games indefinitely, if not cancel the entire season outright. The Big Ten may join them. The ACC has already said it’ll play a full schedule. The SEC is on the fence, which means that it’s busy concocting a good public explanation for why it WILL move forward.
Now here’s a take for you: they shouldn’t play these games in fall, or in the spring, or even in 2021. The entire college football industry should f–king die. I am a sportswriter by trade so it’s not in my self-interest to wish a sport into oblivion, despite the Danny Kanells of the world claiming that guys like me are just misanthropes who are all horny for doom. I don’t want the NFL or the NBA to die. I don’t want any pro sports to die. But college football? Oh yeah, let’s kill the f–k out of college football.
