The football world is a little weird right now as many big conferences, including Big Ten football, have started to adjust their schedules for the fall.

The Ivy League was the first conference to make a move when it comes to fall sports. They canceled all of their fall sports due to Covid-19. From there, a few other conferences have adjusted their traditional fall schedules.

One of the conferences to adjust things was the Big Ten. They decided to cancel all non-conference games and go with just a Big Ten schedule for 2020. I am not going to get into the muck of whether it is a good idea or not to do that, but this got me to thinking, could a fall cancelation be next and would they play in the spring?

But here is a legit question; would a spring schedule actually be better for the football world? Let’s take Covid-19 completely out of the scenario. Let’s imagine we are in 2022 and everything is under control. Why not play college football in the spring?

I thought about what the football world would look like with college football being played in the spring. And, honestly, I really like the option. I actually came up with five reasons why it wouldn’t be a bad idea.
