Report: SEC has not had discussions about moving football season to spring
In recent days, a report surfaced that the Ivy League was considering moving its football season to spring and playing only other league games.
Other conferences are likely considering a spring season as one of many potential contingency plans, but don’t count on that happening in the SEC.
Per Brandon Marcello of 247Sports, the SEC hasn’t engaged in any sort of discussions of a potential spring season:
The Southeastern Conference has not formulated or even discussed a contingency plan for a spring football season in 2021 should the novel coronavirus force the postponement of the 2020 fall football season, an industry source familiar with the discussions tells 247Sports.
So, for now, it seems the conference is full steam ahead toward starting the football season in September as originally scheduled.
Things can change quickly, of course. Last month, commissioner Greg Sankey said a final decision about when to start the season could come in late July.
