Oregon's Governor Has Said No Sporting Events Will Have Fans Through September

For those counting at home, that is 146 days away:

It seems kind of wild to be making a decision 150 days away, especially when the data is changing by the day, but I'm not a governor, so I guess I'll just shut it and keep it moving. I assume it will be easy to reverse this decision if the governor believes it is safe to do so.

The game that will be affected the most will be Ohio State @ Oregon, which is scheduled to take place on September 12th. Hard to imagine that game not having fans, but it's better than not having a game at all. 

In good news, Larry Scott appeared to be optimistic about a college football season happening this fall. 

Scott noted that he doesn't expect a situation where only 8 of the teams in his league will be fielding a football team in the fall:

“We’ll have to cross that bridge when we get there, but I don’t expect that,” he said.

Scott said he has spoken with each president/chancellor individually since the shutdown began and believes there is a commitment to move forward as one.

Due to the coronavirus hotspots, the Pac-12 will be one of the biggest dominoes to fall when it comes to the question of "will a college football season happen" being answered. 

Right now, it appears that there is very good reason to be optimistic. 2 weeks ago I was very low on the college football season happening, but thanks to comments over the past 2 weeks by college football officials and coaches, it looks like we are gonna have college football in 2020.
