Kevin Negandhi spins the wheel of college football news, first with Heather Dinich as they discuss UConn canceling its season, the Big Ten revising its schedule to accommodate teams potentially quarantining, the role of the NCAA Board of Governors and if this is the the start of the Power Five schools breaking off from the NCAA (1:07). Then, Adam Rittenberg joins the podcast to talk about #BigTenUnited, how #BigTenUnited differs from the Pac-12’s player unity group, the potential for more NFL-caliber players to opt out of the season and the Pac-12 planning a loan program to rescue athletic departments if the season doesn’t happen (14:56).
