The Ivy League has reportedly canceled fall sports.

According to Jon Rothstein, the Ivy League has canned fall sports amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, and won’t “entertain any sports being played until after January 1st.” (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

The move was widely-expected, and it’s believed an official decision on football in the spring will come at some point today.

We all knew this was coming. The writing has been on the wall for weeks with the Ivy League. There’s really no reason to panic here.

Is it fun that the Ivy League pushed sport back and canceled them in the fall? Obviously not. It’s not ideal at all.

Having said that, we have no reason to believe other college football programs will do the same just because the Ivy League did it.

While I respect their FCS football teams, Alabama, LSU, Clemson and Ohio State won’t be modeling their 2020 campaigns after whatever Harvard and Yale do.
