Technical Tidbits 7/10: Conference Only?

This would mean no COFH. Or would it?

Yesterday, the Big 10 announced that they were moving to a conference-only football schedule for the 2020 season. It is looking like the ACC (and many other conferences) will be following suit. This means that Georgia Tech will be losing games against Gardner-Webb, UCF, and possibly georgia. Many are reporting that Notre Dame will be playing their ACC games, so #MayhematMBS should still be a go. According to the article above, even in a conference-only season, there is a slight possibility that COFH will be played. The game is at the end of the season and is the biggest of the year for both schools. However, as it seems with all things since March, it’s too early to tell. We might not even have college football at all.

Four-star DE Tyreak Sapp (no relation to Warren) has been committed to the Florida Gators since late 2018. However, that doesn’t preclude him from being recruited by other schools and planning potential visits. Geoff Collins & co. have made enough of an impression on Sapp to be included in his top five. The no. 96 recruit nationally (.9557 247Sports Composite) plays for Saint Thomas Aquinas High School in Fort Lauderdale, FL. Last season for the Raiders, Sapp recorded 29 tackles and 8.5 sacks.

Even though college football’s week one won’t start until September, you can already place bets on its games. Circa Sports has made Clemson 29-point favorites against Tech in Atlanta. The over/under for the game is set at 56.5. Last season, Clemson covered the spread and the o/u went over, as the Tigers beat Tech by more than 37 with both teams combined scoring more than 61. While odds are out, September 3 is a long way away. I wouldn’t place any bets just yet.

Reports about a conference-only football schedule for the ACC are unofficial at this time, however, the Conference officially announced it will be delaying all fall Olympic sports competition until September 1. This means that all of Georgia Tech’s fall sports, minus football, will be affected by the delay. While a delay is not fun, at least it is not a cancellation.

Who knows what’s going to happen between now and fall? I’m not optimistic about any college football taking place at this point.

Question of the Day: In a conference-only season, would you want COFH to be played?
