Re: No fall sports championships, including FCS football, in 2020
Rose Bowl has ties to the PAC 12 and Big 10. Who's gonna play? Both of those shut down unless you put a Big XII team in and let the one or two Big 10 teams playing fill the spot. I think the issue with the bowls will be the travel. Kind of like conventions - monetary commitments start pretty early so unless people get much more comfortable about traveling and California relaxes their restrictions the Rose Bowl won't play to an empty stadium.
I don't think you will see a full delay to spring. The athletes that are going to the NFL do not want to play in the spring. And I think it would be a bigger risk physically to the kids to try and play a full season in the spring and then again in the Fall. You want to see injuries just wait until they don't get an off-season. Ouch.
