Has the NBA or NHL addressed when next season will begin?



NHL is also looking to start early December and hope to play a full season.

So the Stanley Cup will end sometime in July or August?

They will have less days off but the season will go longer. They will try and end no more than a month later than normal. Remains to be seen of course as everything is still up in the air right now.

Thereís been some thought that the nba may just permanently move to mid December through summer rather than mid October through early June so that theyíre spending less time competing with football for viewers and more time with baseball. Stated goal date of December 3 to next season have said if postponing would leave a possibility of some attendance later in the season would be a reason to consider postponing.

The Big 10 and Pac-12 have announced they are cancelling football for this fall. The other remaining 3 power conferences will have no choice but to follow. What are they going to declare a champion among less than half participants?

I would not be surprised if the ACC or SEC plays conference games. I don't think the NCAA will sponsor a Championship this year.

Don't be surprised if some teams align with other conferences to play this season. I think it is unlikely but could happen. If that happens the NCAA is going to weaken significantly and might be dropped by conferences in the future.

Coaches at Nebraska and Ohio State publicly state they want to explore playing football with other conferences this fall. Sounds far-fetched but . . . everything we are experiencing seems surreal.

The NCAA does not officially sponsor a FBS championship, it is run by the College Football Playoff organization.

Your second point is substantially weakened by the realities of conference contracts.

Anyone know where I can bet on futures for when CFB games might be played or if they will be played at all? Iíd take no CFB games played before 10/1/20 at -300 at this point.

There remaining 26 home games are in Buffalo. Canada would not allow them to play in Canada.
