No one knows. Too early to tell. It depends on how things go once everything starts to open up again. If there is a spike in infections, I would think not. I personally would like to see an abbreviated season with only conference play and no bowl games. Have the season start later, maybe in October and play 7-8 weeks straight. And only conference games.

It will be a total mess if we have no season. Will the seniors we invited back? If so, how happens to the scholarship situation?

But in the end, it will be determined by what happens when people start going back to work/school.

Been reading that some California colleges may consider canceling fall sports, including WVball and Football, since they missed all of spring camp and may not have any practices until school starts up in August.

For schools where football pays for all other sports, having no football revenue may mean shutting down all sports for SY20-21

It will also affect their opponents. If San Jose, Fresno, San Diego State decide not to play, it cuts down on UH's opponents. It has a potential to be a huge mess.

Image how ugly games will be this season, for all teams. It will be a gamblers nightmare picking teams vs the point spread. Players on both sides of the field out of assignment, injuries piling up because guys not conditioned, etc. Heck players may not even know who are their new coaches and teammates outside of social media.

UH is virtual for the summer semester.Let's assume that Mitigation is successful and schools can open up after the end of summer semester around the beginning of August.There has to be a few weeks of conditioning to get players back in shape before practices start. Then,there would have to be around a month of fall camp where UH installs/practices their schemes. Most D-I schools are virtual through summer semester, so , no big ting.
Games could begin in October,in the best case.You would lose the August/September games.

The problem that could kill the season is interstate travel.UH has games in different states,all of which will be in different positions on the infection curve.Some games on the short schedule could be canceled because Hawaii or any other MWC state could be back in a lockdown.

If the virus is seasonal,it could be back by November,and we know what that would mean for late November games and Dec/Jan bowl games.

There are a lot of problems for the NFL and NCAA because their teams need interstate travel to compete.
At best , I could see a shortened season which might not have a bowl season or playoffs should the virus be seasonal.

New York Times article: "When will sports come back? Here is what has to happen first"
Sporting events — with fans packed into cozy stands, narrow concourses and omnipresent lines — fit the exact definition of the sort of mass gatherings that experts insist we must avoid at this time to stop the spread of the coronavirus. And it’s not just the games themselves: Think about fans traveling to and from stadiums, tailgating in the parking lots, congregating at bars before and after the events.

“You’re bringing together a bunch of people who don’t usually mix and packing them really close together for an extended period of time,” said Dr. Julie Vaishampayan, chair of the public health committee for the Infectious Diseases Society of America. “As risk goes, it’s way above just sitting in a restaurant.”

The commish of the MWC said yesterday that if there is no football in the fall, there probably won't be any sports played next school year since football is the money maker.

OKay, now reading what he said and what they put on the news last night was different. They did not have the thing about possibly playing in the spring.

I’m prepared for there to be no sports or at least no team sports in 2020. Maybe, just maybe the NFL can salvage a shortened season but I think the NCAA is gonna be hard pressed to get a bunch of 18 and 19 year olds to engage in a full contact sport 4 months from now. Just seems unlikely. Hope I’m wrong(providing it’s safe to be wrong)
