One of the wildest weeks in college football history has produced some historic results.
The FCS Playoffs will not happen in its traditional time period, much less the FCS season. After weeks of hemming and hawing, the NCAA turned over decisions on fall championships and playing to each individual division.
DII and DIII wasted little time and canceled its championships. DI had the difficult decision on FCS, since one of the NCAA mandates was to have fifty percent of eligible teams playing in the fall. That number was tenuous before this week, it got downright dicey when the Big Sky made it known they were postponing their season to the spring. The Pioneer League pushed the FCS over the magic number with its decision not to play in the fall as well.
That left the top FCS league in the country in a tough spot. With no FCS Playoffs happening in the fall, would the league try and press forward and simply play league games while also abiding by the NCAA’s health protocols?
