Not trying to pin Basketball fans vs Football Fans, but just curious would we actually save money on not having to lease the Rent, Travel Costs, and other stuff?
If they can be more competitive fans will come back in force.If this seems like a good idea to anyone here even a little bit, then it is time to lobby your president and AD to drop the sport altogether. You can't half a** participation at The FBS Level. If your own fans won't miss the team no one else will either.
Exactly. The Rent is a fixed obligation. You still have to pay the staff, unless the plan is to rebuild from scratch. The team would evaporate unless you kept them on scholarship, and it still might if there were other places to go. The schools who really get killed are the P5 who cash flow from TV revenues, and carry big staff overhead.The answer is likely no, revenue dries up completely and many of the expenses are still there.
We won't lose nearly as much as the P5 schools but not having any football would still be a financial net negative for UCONN.
Really that is not far fetched. Some models predict a return of the virus during “cold and flu” season which is late fall through roughly April. Attendance is already being threatened. A significant return will really endanger the indoor sports.I think you will see sports in outdoor arenas before indoor. The basketball season is actually in jeopardy now.
Statistically, the same. If you have a 4% (made up number) chance of contracting a disease, it doesn't matter if you are in a crowd of 100 or 1,000,000.. you have a 4% chance of contracting the disease.
im Guessing about the same. People in a confined space are more endangered that in open space but more are obviously a problem. Honestly though even if they do play I doubt 110000 show up at the Big House for a while. Or 10000 at a gym. If this thing is still around do you want to be sitting on top of a guy coughing his brains out? Or worse next to the guy who spikes a fever TOMORROW...
That's not good the right comparison. You won't see 110000 in the big house until 2021. The better comparison is 30,000 in the big house versus 3000. For a basketball game.
If they can be more competitive fans will come back in force.
