What To Do With The Rest of 2020?
We have an opportunity that seldom exists. With nothing to show on the networks, no games to attend for AD's and the commissioners, and in most places no school for the Presidents, so we have a fantastic window to accomplish quite a few things that get mangled and bungled because of the inability to get everyone on the same page otherwise.

Let the Network Sports Directors, AD's, Commissioners, and Presidents get together with Emmert, even by teleconference and accomplish these things:

1. Come up with a unified plan for rights to image for players, and pay for play limits and set them in stone.

2. Go ahead and settle how any future realignment is to play out, even if the effective date isn't until 2024.

3. With realignment put to bed go ahead and determine the format for the future CFP. Will it be 4 in a champs only format or will it be 8.

4. Rework the bowl system and the tie ins to be more equitable for the respective divisions.

5. Determine the final standing on transfer rules, deciding eligibility issues for this stoppage, and determining in advance of any future emergency how they will be handled so the athletes are left hanging.

6. With all of the above in mind settle all of the conferences contracts for the future, reworking all of them and setting them to come due at the same time thereby setting all rates from the same base evaluation.

This will help with the competitiveness of all conferences and set definable standards that make clear to each conference what metrics they must meet to be able to expect raises.

7. Set a higher % of payout for all NCAA Tournament Teams. And make tournament credits all payable within 1 calendar year of the tournament in which they were earned.

8. Set up standardized training for all NCAA officials and make the officials answerable to the NCAA and not to conferences. Pay them full salaries and make sure they are eligible to call at least 2 different sports. Allow them to have benefits. This will help to standardize calls, discourage gambling influence due to the per game fee and per diem they currently get, now and make them accountable to no conference office.

I'm sure you may have some other suggestions, but they'll never be a better time to get everyone on the same page than there is right now and possibly for the next couple of months.

Then maybe we it all starts back we will be able to get comfortable with, accustomed to, and delight in the changes rather than cringe over them and stay constantly irritated by all the things that just don't seem to get settled.

That is set up by having them pay all tourney creds within a calendar year and up the payout for tournament credits. That'll be a big no and they we will have a breakaway and set up a national officiating organization for college sports with part time officials for non revenue sports and full salaried officials for revenue sports. This had to be the most inconsistently and poorly officiated basketball season I had seen in my entire life. Block/charge, the stupid flopping call, double dribbling everywhere with palming seldom being called and 4 steps going to the hoop with the ball on the player's hip. I've never seen anything like it.

They get away with all of that and then there is an automatic whistle under every shot attempted from under the basket whether there is a foul or not. It's a wonder any school made a run at all this year.

I doubt any conference or school will breakaway from the NCAA right now, but it was very interesting that the SEC commissioner went on TV Thursday afternoon to say that the NCAA screwed up with its sweeping cancellation.

We already know the playoff will be 8. Even more certain is that it will never be champs only. ESPN doesn't want that.
The only question is when it changes.

No we don't. The SEC and Big 10 have shown no inclination to support it.

RE: What To Do With The Rest of 2020?
Who is going to make life changing decisions on teleconferencing/videoconferencing? Sure, Chris Del Conte is going to sign up with the SEC over email. And the NFL canceled its annual meeting that was going to happen in late March/early April.

You want to speculate what will happen here, go ahead. We got nothing better to do for the next month to do. But if you expect any real major deals in college sports the next month or two, you're more likely to find hand sanitizer or toilet paper.

The Big 10 commissioner has spoken in favor of it. In the past, a number of SEC coaches and ADs have spoken in favor of it.

It WILL go to 8. Not necessarily before the contract comes up and not for certain when it comes up. But eventually.

I agree, 8 is the number. And I think conference champs get autobids, if they don't there's no need for a CCG and they'll be a thing of the past which would be a shame. The AAC commissioners entire career rests on getting the conference a seat at the table in that contract, 6 conf champs and 2 at large/wild cards.

With so many colleges having already declared that they would not conduct on-campus classes the remainder of the semester, keeping student-athletes on campus to play would just fuel the whole exploitation argument.

Once "autobids" become a thing, that will be more motivation for the SEC, Big Ten, and Pac-12 to invite Texas/Oklahoma in hopes of making sure the Big 12 doesn't get an autobid.

I think autobids will become a slippery slope. If you give the AAC an autobid, the MWC will be saying why not us? I don't know how far they will get. If some school in some conference finds someone in Congress on their side, they can demand an autobid for their school's conference. Can you imagine an autobid for the MAC? At the very least, they'll say that the CFP can't discriminate and say these conferences have bids and these don't. Most other conferences have practically every conference that meets a certain criteria getting an automatic bid. What criteria will the CFP use for what conferences get an autobid? The CFP's best idea would be to keep no autobids at all.

No he didn't. Warren said they would look at it. That's what people say when they aren't enthusiastic but want to appear reasonable. Sankey was a bit more direct in his disfavor.

Exactly the same way they were dubbed BCS conferences, and the AAC still has an opening so that team can inquire about joining. The MWC commissioner has spoken out in favor of the "G5" system while the AAC has been making strives to break away from the G label to the P label and it's gaining ground.
