Several College Football conferences have canceled their fall seasons. The biggest two conferences are the Big 10 and the Pac 12. That decision isn't one the players in those conferences agree with.
Luckily the ACC, Big 12 and SEC are still going forward with their seasons this fall. Without full stadiums schools will still be taking a financial hit.
A Texas A&M reporter pointed out that the Aggies will lose a staggering $50 million if they're only able to have only 30 percent of fans in attendance.
Former Aggies quarterback Johnny Manziel took the opportunity to take a shot at the conferences who canceled their seasons by responding, "At least we're playing ball..."
At least we’re playing ball...

I couldn't have said it better. At least we'll have some College Football this fall from an age group that has a very low chance of serious complications from the coronavirus.
$50 million is nothing to sneeze at, but it could be much, much worse. Now let's talk about paying these players.
