My honest expectation is by September 26 college football as a whole will be shut down. Ideally I would like to see a full spring and full fall season but so far every coach I know of has said that's simply not possible due to the physical demands.

Sounds like the PFL is off for this fall with a possible spring season.

The Missouri Valley Football Conference announced they are moving the conference season to the spring with non-conference games in the fall. 

Missouri Valley Conference, eyeing FCS playoffs, opts for spring season

It sounds like 8 conference games in the spring with up to 4 non-conference games in the fall at each schools discretion plus postseason. Hopefully the PFL follow suit since they are run from the same office in MVC. Missouri State is playing Oklahoma at the end of August.

The Mid-American Conference appears to be following the same model as the Missouri Valley. The Big Ten Conference elected to stop teams from expanding to full pad practices.  

According to one article I read two Power 5 ADs who wanted to remain unidentified said all DI football will go to this model. 
“The Pac-12 will be next and then the Big Ten,” one AD said. “The Big Ten just going to no contact, what’s that going to do for you With California being so prominent [with the coronavirus], I see the Pac-12 getting out there next.”

And one of the NCAAs top doctor stated...
Dr. Amesh Adalja, a senior scholar at the Johns Hopkins University Center for Health Security and one of the members of the group advising the NCAA on COVID-19, told the Free Press on Saturday that it appears virtually impossible for college football to proceed this fall. He cited two key reasons: delays in getting test results due to the volume needed, particularly for administering them multiple times per week and “the risk of community spread impinging on the sport.”

This is starting to feel like last spring when the NCAA canceled the DI basketball postseason. Delay, delay seeing the lost dollar signs and then public pressure to finally cancel.

Parents looking for answers from B10. Wonder if the MVC/PFL provided a full update to the athletes and parents before the vote to cancel. Seems logical the NCAA should be consistent in their message and athletes/parents should have a voice during a pandemic, but when has the NCAA used logic. By leaving it up to each conference it creates unfairness throughout the fall sports. And I am surprised the conferences did not attempt to solicit feedback from the players/families they are supposedly trying to protect.

This appears to be for B10 football only, but maybe there should be one for all college athletes.
