Ingram on Jox This Morning
https://omny.fm/shows/the-roundtable-wjo...ram-uab-ad

Jox Roundtable had Ingram on for 22 minutes this morning. Really good interview with candid answers from Ingram.

-Can't say anything definitively, but feels "very good" about UAB being Miami's one OOC game
-Hasn't had discussions with Miami about getting buyout money from a breach of contract because he feels good about playing the game
-Still planning on playing a 12 game schedule and actively trying to fill the spot left by AAMU. Probably with a team geographically close.
-CUSA is going with a flexible model of playing the regular 8 conference games and then allowing schools to play as many or few OOC games as they can/want to
-UAB has a testing advantage over the vast majority of schools due to connection to UAB hospital
-Currently looking at a 50% capacity model for Legion Field. Would allow us to accommodate most of the fan base though you may not sit in your normal seat
-Ticket sales/donations tracking at 85% of last year so not as big of a revenue hit (yet at least) as other schools are seeing. Said he's heard from several season ticket holders that are waiting to purchase until a plan is announced. Thinks we can close the revenue gap more when we have a plan to share.
-Said the NCAA may announce they're cancelling fall sports championships, but that doesn't automatically mean fall sports are cancelled. Gave the example that volleyball could still have a season and still have a conference tournament, but the champion just wouldn't go to the NCAA tournament if the NCAA doesn't hold a tournament.

RE: Ingram on Jox This Morning
Was a good interview.
He said that that contingency plans were being made and that they are in discussions with teams at all levels (FCS G5, P5) about replacing our missing game and that things will probably fall in place pretty soon once the miami game is finalized (If it is played, it may be moved up a week to our now open week of the A&M game) and the remaining conferences announce their plans.

That's great if it happens. My expectation is that they (NCAA Football in general) try their best to play a season, but that it craters in progress or never gets started. Look at what is happening in baseball with rosters that are a quarter as large. Throw in that the players are college kids and won't be in any sort of bubble and percentages say that a season is unlikely to happen.

This doesn't make any sense, at all. if it's safe to play the season why wouldn't it be safe to play out the championship. Time for everyone to get their head out of the sand, stop wasting money on something that's not going to happen, and get into severe cost saving mode now instead of a month from now after a bunch of money has gone out the door

The NCAA can only cancel what they control
