This was the direction it was heading unfortunately. The season is definitely not guaranteed.

I would bet on a season, but if we are going to delay the start of it because of a reshuffling of games, then we couldn't start this early. I think what we are seeing is just confirmation of a delay in our first game.

This makes me believe we’re going conference only and pushing the start time back for our season.

Hope you are right, but we keep hearing more bad news every few weeks. "Spring game cancelled," "No games against the Washington schools," "Conference only" and now "season delayed." Hope we get some good news as far as having a season, we certainly have had bad news.

We aren't the only ones.. So hopefully this is just because of Scheduling issues and not the Chyna Virus.

SEC Will Not Hold Traditional Fall Camp, LSU Football Practice to Start Aug. 17 Sports Illustrated Reports
Glen West


3 hours ago

LSU football will have to wait a few extra weeks before it can start preseason practice. According to a report from Sports Illustrated's Ross Dellenger, the SEC will not hold a traditional fall camp prior to the 2020 season.

Programs across the conference were preparing to start fall camp this week, with Aug. 7 being the reported start date. Instead, the conference office agreed Tuesday to delay the start of preseason camp.

The conference will start practicing on Aug. 17 according to Dellenger's report, where each team will be allowed 25 practices over a 40-day window.

The SEC released further details about what the practice schedule will look like in a press release.

“A five-day acclimatization period is required, with two days in helmets only, two days in shells and the fifth day in full pads.

“Schools will be required to provide student-athletes a minimum of two days off each week until the week before the first game of the season.”

Here are the details of Dellenger's report on what teams can and can't do between now and Aug. 16.

The league is allowing coaches to continue the current 20-hour per week model until Friday. From Friday through Aug. 16, staffs will be restricted to 11 hours a week of football or strength work related events (six hours for strength and five hours for football). Their walk-throughs must be conducted without equipment. That includes no footballs, helmets or pads. In this enhanced access period, Friday to Aug. 16, teams have been granted three extra hours for non-football related meetings.

The delay to preseason camp goes hand in hand with the delay to start the season. Instead of having a seven-week preseason camp before the Sept. 26 start to the season, teams will have a much more manageable 40-day time table to spread out preseason practices.

Why is BYU starting on time when our game against them on Oct 2 is their first scheduled game after all of the P5 cancellations?

Their tight end Bushman said they are starting on time because they "have been obedient."
