Should There Be A College Football Season This Fall? (And Is That The Right Question To Ask?)

Aug 19, 2020

Two of the 'Power 5' NCAA conferences - the Big 10 and Pac 12 - have already postponed their football seasons due to the pandemic.  The three others - the ACC, Big 12, and SEC - are forging ahead...for now.  Should there be a season?  Dr. Victoria Jackson says asking that glosses over so much of what ails college athletics and the athletes themselves.  She's a professor of sports history and religious studies at Arizona State University, and former college athlete herself at UNC Chapel Hill.  She and the Shoops discuss her column published earlier this summer in the Boston Globe.
