Don't see how ACC has any plus 1 games if we get a season. Looks like VMI might have their conference cancel also soon.

AAC CUSA and Liberty will be enough to fill all of them probably

7 ACC teams have now or will soon lose their OOC game ( or in the case of UNC and Clemson never had one scheduled) it's going to be tough.

.... since the last domino....

Looks like the Big 10 university presidents are meeting to decide the fate of the conference this year. According to Pete Thamel, there is a lot of momentum to cancel the fall season now.

Welp.

The Orange and Maroon you see, that's fighting on to victory.

No football because people just wouldn't take this seriously a few months ago. Wear a mask stop having large gatherings. This impact on not only teams but individual players, schools, towns they are in and countless businesses that rely on games and the people that come with them will be immense.

Exactly if we had done the "hard work" during the winter, spring, and over the course of the summer we'd be in a much better position to have sporting events.

$70 million projected loss of economic impact in the NRV if there's no full VT football season. Expect a lot of your favorite places to close permanently after summer effectively started in March.

And even if there is a football season, it's not going to bring the typical crowds through Blacksburg on game weekends. It's a very unfortunate outcome either way.

Exactly. With reduced revenue, some places might stay afloat but barely. Not all will. Without the season, I really expect a massive hit to everything. Downtown Blacksburg may become a ghost town.

I don't think it becomes a ghost town, but it stands to lose its small town charm. That's prime real estate that stands to bounce back once the pandemic is in check.

That's probably true in the long term. I'd hate to see it. I guess I'm thinking more in terms of things shuttering over the coming year. That would be absolutely gutting. I'm not sure if DBI will try to prevent it from becoming overrun with chains but I doubt it.

I'm still planning on a Blacksburg trip.. NRV in the fall is great regardless.

If there's no football we'll just hit some of the quality hiking in the area, get takeout from PK's and Cabo and hunker down at the airbnb house for some card games or a movie night.

If there is football, chances are that we'd just watch on TV from the airbnb after hiking in the morning instead of tailgating all day like a typical game. No way we're hanging out at a bar/restaurant for 4 hours while people are drinking and (hopefully) cheering loudly. Definitely trying to spend some of that discretionary budget in the NRV this fall though.

I thought Ohio State players didn't go there to play school...now what are they gonna do, go to class???
