Jeff Brohm believes spring football an option if fall is off the table
Based on the news in the college football world on Saturday, with the MAC postponing fall sports until at least spring, there’s growing concern that Power 5 conferences will follow the lead.
While many have scoffed at the notion of playing football in the spring, Purdue head coach Jeff Brohm reportedly believes it’s a viable option. It seems like it would be tough to accomplish, but Tom Dienhart of Gold and Black Illustrated reported that the Boilermakers leader thinks it could happen if it comes to that.
According to Dienhart, Brohm also believes that a fall season could be played in 2021, even if this season is pushed to the spring.
Playing football in the spring obviously creates some serious issues alone. A spring season would bump up against the men’s basketball tournament, the NFL Scouting Combine and the NFL Draft.
Assuming the fall season would continue as planned, student-athletes would also be asked to play between 20-30 games in an 11-month window.
No decisions have yet been made on the college football season, but something will have to be decided soon as the season approaches.
