These are the states with mandatory 14 day self-quarantine rules:

Massachusetts (Boston College and UMass)
New York (Syracuse, Buffalo, Army)
New Jersey (Rutgers)
Connecticut (UConn)

Here are states that have some self quarantine rules, but may be vague:

Kentucky (Louisville, Kentucky, Western Kentucky) 9 states identified for self quarantine including Florida, South Carolina, and Georgia.

Maryland (Maryland, Navy) recommended 14 day self quarantine for out of state travel

Pennsylvania (Penn St., Pitt, Temple) vague guidelines on self quarantine


I don't see how conferences like the ACC can make any kind of scheduling plans given the restrictions of teams playing BC, Syracuse, and possibly Louisville.

It would be divine if Syracuse and BC were taken off of FSU's schedule this year...and other than that...there seem to be no blockage to playing the rest of the conference games...

If Notre Dame gets to play for a conference championship, there might be a full membership for ND down the road. The ACC should add Liberty for school #16.

Depends on the wording of the contract's Force Majeur clause.
Yep, though "circumstances beyond our control forced us to cancel all games in 2020" is an easier argument than "circumstances beyond our control forced us to to pick and choose the games we would play in 2020."

Some games will be easy to walk away from...the WVU-FSU Chic-Fil-A Kickoff pays $4.5 million...but that money is solely from ticket sales...reduce attendance size and thus the pay out and you have an immediate out. Same with UNC-Auburn in the kickoff.

Latest on Massachusetts:
MA quarantine can be circumvented by:
- Negative test result <72 hours prior to travel.
- Negative test result after you arrive.
- No requirement for travelers from New England, NY, NJ, Hawaii (!!)

You must quarantine upon arrival until you get your test results. The Governor did admit that enforcement of this will be difficult and honor system would play a larger role. Honestly, this is targeted to the return of college students to Massachusetts.

BC and UConn could play each other freely with no travel restriction.

But in reality, they really should just move the season to the spring and start in mid to late January.

I know that FSU has a lab with PCR machines/regents to test and have quick results. I assume other uni's will also test.

If a student, whether an athlete or not, wakes up one morning and doesn’t feel good, potentially displaying symptoms of the coronavirus, he or she can be tested immediately and expect a response either that day or the following day.

This is also critical as FSU returns athletes in basketball as well as other fall sports. Testing can be done in-house, ensuring a quicker turnaround.

Should we fire up the conference realignment board again? Going forward if this works out ...???? Am I reading this right that acc would need one more team for 16 2020? What are the chances UConn is the other team?

Who knows what it will look like in mid November when FSU is scheduled at the Carrier Dome?

There are currently no state wide travel restrictions in North Carolina (Wake Forest game)....and there are no current restrictions in South Carolina (expired in May) so Clemson game looks OK for Cuse....
Problem is coming back.
Can't the 14 day issue be resolved by near daily testing. Ahem, Disney/Fox?
sure. So you are using scarce testing resources for a football team when moms and grandads can’t get tested.

Less of a problem if the TV partners fund it and use private labs

Answer to your “near daily testing” workaround question is in here (P5/NCAA protocol):

Incorect. That makes the shortages worse.
Doing some reading this evening.... yes I see now how with many colleges, many public schools, pro sports returning and everything else trying to ramp up this fall it seems there simply won’t be enough testing capacity public or private... current national testing around 700k-800k daily.... and per one story it appears the federal goal is to get to capacity to do 6M per day by December

Not serious here; but maybe Disney builds its own mega lab for both its problems- it’s theme park business and college football.;)

Very nice find. If Notre Dame becomes a full ACC member, we're #16.

Notre Dame is not committing to a conference...Lucifer's skates are still in a hot dusty corner of his attic.
