Men's College Schedule This Spring—So Far

Arkansas State could be back on the field soon. David Barpal photo.

The men's D1A and D1AA college season will likely have some games, and we could see an entire conference season or two.

With several programs having instituted stringent COVID safety protocols, and having avoided any major outbreaks, these teams appear ready to compete. However, there is an overarching caveat to the plan, namely, that plans can change. Every coach we've contacted has said that they remain hopeful and are planning to play, but understand that things could stop the games at any time.

As for those seldom-defined protocols, the programs we've spoken to or who have met some conference standards are all testing their players three times a week. Some programs (Cal) have committed to more; Cal tests daily. Other protocols that are generally followed by everyone include disinfecting balls and other equipment, and maintaining health monitoring. 

As for the games themselves, the Mid-South has planned a full conference season. The SCRC has a season planned that starts late and is shortened, but could still work out. The varsity and quasi-varsity teams in the Chesapeake have planned to play each other, but it's not for standings. The military academies are expected to be able to play, but they aren't allowed to fly, so the travel is somewhat limited.

Travel on buses will be problematic as well. Cramming 40-odd players on a bus now seems Covidly ill-advised.

So ... this is what we have so far. We may see more games added, but we may also see some taken away.
