Scott,

How do you see the FCS Playoffs playing out when not all FCS schools will have complete schedules?
I don't see the FCS playoffs happening at all. My guess is that we eventually see the NCAA cancel all fall postseason competitions including the FCS playoffs. This would not impact the FBS though, since their "playoff system" is outside of the control of the NCAA.

We've already seen what happens with the MLB and all the resources they have after just a weekend of games...the Marlins have an outbreak of at least 14 cases, causing them to have to postpone their home opener tonight as well as postponing the Yankees and Phillies game, because the Marlins played at Philadelphia this weekend.
If the MLB can't control things, I don't know how FCS teams are going to be able to do it.

At this point, I think any football being played this fall is a "bonus".

I think we officially at the "Hope and Prayer" stage as it pertains to football this fall.

No fall football for Quincy University, Monmouth College, and Knox College.

Culver-Stockton is planning on starting their 9-game NAIA season on September 12. For this year, NAIA has reduced the regular season from 11 games down to 9 games.

I’m assuming BIG12 will follow the P5 and do conference only, if MVFC stays course and it’s a regular season, I’m curious who we could replace OK State with?

Also, has there been any word about spectators for MVFC games, or in Macomb?

The only reason the MVFC is "staying the course", is to get the $$ on the FBS games. If these are taken away, I'm guessing we will go to conf only, if we play in the Fall at all.

For spectators, I think someone said 20%?

From the A.D.'s interview with the McDonough County Voice:
“The state of Illinois shared its guidelines for both indoor and outdoor events, and right now we will be at 20% capacity for outdoor stadium seating areas with no tailgating,” WIU Director of Athletics Danielle Surprenant said. “There is definitely room for those things to change, but that is what we are planning for in the mean time.
