Over the past couple weeks each power five conference has unveiled their revised schedule and plans for the upcoming 2020 college football season.
This appeared to be a clear indication that we were going to get a college football season in the fall. However, over the weekend the momentum shifted in the opposite direction.
Reports surfaced on Sunday evening that the Big 10 was expected to soon announce their plans to cancel/postpone the season. Dan Patrick reports that 10 of 12 school presidents in the Big 10 voted not to play in 2020. The belief is that the Big 10 wants to wait and make this announcement with the other four power five leagues, hoping that they’ll make the same decision.
Scott Satterfield met with the media via virtual teleconference on Monday and criticized the “other leagues” for not sticking with plans they initially put in place and questioned their leadership. He also says the ACC plans to play as of right now.
Scott Satterfield criticizes the leaders of "some of these leagues and conferences" for not sticking to a plan. "That's not leadership. We had months to plan out how we're going to come back, how are we going to do this. And we've been doing it, our kids have been doing it here." pic.twitter.com/HExrssFVtf

SATTERFIELD says he has "constant communication" with his administration. "The latest I heard this morning is that the ACC is moving forward, no matter what anybody else does, Big Ten, Pac-12."
