James Franklin thinks conferences can play football without all teams participating because of COVID-19…is he right?

-Franklin said Wednesday that if the Big Ten can have 12 of the 14 teams opened up in time for football season, he can’t see a conference penalizing the majority of the teams because 2 schools won’t play

-The Big Ten Emerging Infectious Disease Task Force (yes, that actually exists) is helping B1G commissioner Kevin Warren in the process, but it’s not just this conference—it’s all conferences. What would that look like if the majority of schools but some said they won’t play?

-Notre Dame A.D. Jack Swarbrick said earlier in the week there would be a significant chance that conferences wouldn’t be playing at the same time this year
