 Draft Scout College Football Player News

  The commissioners of the major college football conferences told vice-president Mike Pence on Wednesday there would be no football this fall until campuses were deemed safe for students following the coronavirus pandemic. The 10 commissioners - representing the SEC, ACC, Big Ten, Big 12, Pac-12, Conference USA, Sun Belt, American Athletic, Mid-American and Mountain West - as well as Notre Dame athletic director Jack Swarbrick spoke to Pence via a 30-minute conference call. The call took place as part of the government's exploration of when it might be safe to "re-open" to nation's economy. American Athletic Conference Commissioner Mike Aresco told the AP he and his colleagues sought to impress upon Pence the difference between college and professional sports, most notably that colleges cannot quarantine athletes (who are also students) the way pro leagues could if needed.

Various professional leagues, including the PGA Tour and Major League Baseball, have tentative plans to try and play or resume their 2020 seasons without fans in attendance. Pence was "hopeful and optimistic" and asked good questions, Bowlsby said. All major American professional and college sports have been shut down since mid-March due to COVID-19, resulting in the cancellation of the NCAA basketball tournament, College World Series and spring football practice. Fall football practice typically begins in August, with the season set to open on Labor Day weekend. However, most players are on-campus beginning in June to participate in voluntary workouts with teammates, as well as attend classes. - Birmingham News
