The Pac-12 football season has been, at least, moved to the spring. That’s at least the most hopeful way of spinning the week’s news. The coronavirus pandemic has shut down the fall athletics seasons just five months after it shut down the winter championships and spring seasons entirely.
As we all take a couple of days, hours, moments and realize that our ‘fall schedule’ will not at all be what we thought it was, it’s time to also start to think about what life is like after football.
Sure, we can look forward to football in the spring. In fact, Purdue head coach Jeff Brohm outlined a rather fabulous plan for an eight-game schedule for the Big Ten. Maybe we could take time and draft up a perfect plan for the Pac-12.
Maybe we could hope they’re doing the same thing? Nah, we’re better off not hoping for much out of the NCAA or Pac-12 at this point.
So, with the fall all but cancelled, what are you going to be doing with your Saturdays now? Perhaps you can do those chores that so called your name, that you typically put off until after games, or before, or during the week. Perhaps there’s a project on your house you wanted to do but didn’t have ample weekend time to do so.
Maybe we can all rewatch famous games from the past. Or relish in whatever games are played from teams in the southeast. The NFL is rumored to gobble up the Saturday TV market if no college football, so there may even be that to occupy a couple of hours.
Then there’s hobbies. The trading card industry has boomed since the pandemic started, no reason why it should stop now.
The ideas a limitless, to an extent. So, what are you planning on doing with your Saturdays in the fall?
