The fall roster was posted. The JC QB isn't on it. Not that it will matter.

They will cancel, but not until everyone else has... specifically the SEC. They have 2 million reasons to make sure they don't announce before Auburn does.
That shouldn't matter; the SEC already cancelled all of its non-conference games.

College football is dead for Fall. Heart ailments for super athletes are the spike to the heart for Fall 20 sports.

We'll see what December brings for Spring 21 sports, including Fall 20 postponed.

Shouldn't, yes. But I'm sure UMass wants to play it as safe as possible.

UMass officially cancels fall football. See you in 2021.

Oh well. What gets me the most is Bell will be paid 600k for nothing..

I think a better word would be "postpones". My understanding is that they will try to play in the spring. It will be strange, but scheduling might be easier.

Yep, and we saved him a lot of embarrassment by making this decision. What a win win for Walt.

^ Yep, I didn't catch that. Let's hope they can put together a decent schedule.

I’m just hoping they can play a down.

We all knew it was coming, be it the school's decision, the state's decision or the NCAA's decision. I'm glad it's finalized, for all parties involved.


We'll see if it can work playing football in the spring... I have my doubts and and I think the target should be Fall '21.

I hope they play in the spring, even if it’s a reduced schedule.... but I don’t think it will happen.
