1. What It All Means: Week 2
College football is going to keep marching on.
There were postponements, and everyone else still played.
There were teams that missed players, and they went on anyway.
There were future games delayed or cancelled, and it didn’t seem to matter.
In game after game, there were either no fans in the stands, or there were just enough to amplify just how weird and how not normal everything was.
As games were going on, it was reported that that ACC would pause or postpone if at some point there were fewer than eight schools able to play, all while the Big Ten appeared to be changing its tune as it gets ready to potentially get started up in October – maybe.
There are problems, concerns, issues, and arguments all over the place over the first few weeks of the college football season, and nothing about it feels remotely normal.
However, as Arkansas State was driving late against Kansas State, it was just college football again.
As UTSA and Texas State were battling back and forth, it was about the game itself.
In a strange way, there’s a certain charm to a game being done without the fanfare, the hoopla, and all of the outside aspects.
There’s definitely something missing, and none of it feels quite right, but it’s going. If you’re able to field a healthy team, it’s on.
And if you can’t, college football will go on without you.
