It’s an unprecedented time in college sports, as things have pretty much been shut down due to the COVID-19 outbreak.

The NCAA Tournament — both men’s and women’s — were canceled, and that’s a huge revenue hit for the NCAA.

Could we see some drastic measures being taken across Division I athletic departments? Michael Smith of Sports Business Journal joined “The Paul Finebaum Show” on Monday and said he’s heard a source say some schools are considering cutting staff size and potentially even cutting sports:

There’s still time likely before any decisions like that would be necessary, but it is still a concerning line of thought.

Hopefully, we can get past the COVID-19 outbreak and get back to normal, but this pandemic might put a bit of a halt on the outrageous spending some college athletic departments have enjoyed during the boom period.
