So I know UNA doesn’t have us on their schedule anymore this fall, and we lost Ok State and EWU. So is WIU having fall games or have the officials said spring ball only? I guess, I’m more confused on what’s going on.

Missouri State is the only MVFC school that will be playing fall football: At Oklahoma and a home-and-home series with Central Arkansas.

Am I understanding the NCAA’s rule about this years eligibility basically not counting this fall/spring? So, does the fall season and the spring season of 2020 (technically spring 2021) not count at all towards eligibility?

No, it does not count. Free year. Also, SR scholarship don't count towards the 85/63 limits. I believe this is same for D2 as well.

Wow, our offense could be high powered if everyone stays and our QB play gets upgraded.

I guess the real question is, what are the chances the Auburn RB wears a WIU jersey in the (real) 2021 fall season?

With this year not really counting (although he can play in whatever games we do end up playing) and eligibility for 2 years after that, I think there's a pretty decent chance we get to see him suit up. I'm hoping our offensive line is good enough to give him some space to work with.
