Spring football in the Power Five Conferences would be a joke. All Seniors worthy of being drafted would sit out. All juniors worthy of leaving early would sit out. Class of 2021 players wanting to enroll early to get a start on their careers would be screwed and set them back a year. This could bring about U of M and NW in the Big Ten Championship game. God help the Big Ten
Spring football could be the the last straw that causes the Power Five Conferences to leave the NCAA. Which in turn would be the demise of the NCAA.
What was most telling, was when the Big Ten preferenced the announcement of no pads, with "On advice of counsel".
