Hi All,

New to the board, but not new to the FCS or the OVC. Have been following for the last 10 years or so with a different OVC team. I won't say which one but that team is on a 3 game losing streak vs the Colonels. Anyways I've recently moved nearby Richmond and wanted to hop on and be a part of this moving forward. Hopefully at some point we can meet in person.


With all the being said, what does everyone think the likelihood of the playoffs in the spring is? I did see the Missouri Valley Conference is allowing 3 out of conference games in the fall, and having the 8 conference games next spring to help qualify for a spring playoff if there is one. I think that is a smart idea.

Looking forward to getting to know you guys.
-Fred

No Missouri Valley, no Big Sky, no Colonial and no playoffs. The OVC is not going to play either. Why put off the decision? EKU should get in front of it and publicly lead the charge within the OVC to shut it down for the fall. It's coming so lead it.

It said “possibly moved to the spring.” Eight of 13 FCS conferences will not play football this year. OVC might not be far behind.

...there's no money to be made playing in front of what will
be even thinner crowds than we've bemoaned in years past.

Sadly, it's getting to the "give up the ghost" point for all but
the P5 conference members.

I truly hate it for the Richmond business community that
counts on revenue from game day Saturday's; particularly
Homecoming weekend.

Spring football; I have my doubts-simply too gimmicky
in my mind, particularly if there's NCAA basketball being
played simultaneously.

I'd always hoped for the best but-it seems there's just no
way to make NCAA football work at our level this year...

I am not sure P5 is going this fall. B1G stopped next phase where football practices would go full pads.

That is true. However, the Biggest impact would be on those who possibly have draft hopes. Many have said they would not play if playoffs in the spring. That would make the playoffs a free for all potentially. Just a wild wild situation right now. https://www.google.com/amp/s/247sports. ... 74957/Amp/
