  Michigan's Jim Harbaugh 'comfortable' playing games without fans if necessary There won’t be much that is normal when the college football season is eventually played during the coronavirus pandemic. The massive crowds are part of what makes college football special, especially at places like Michigan. The Big House in Ann Arbor is one of several college football stadiums that holds more than 100,000 fans, but holding games without fans in the stands could be part of a path toward football returning. Jim Harbaugh, entering his sixth season as UM’s head coach, would be OK with no fans in the stands if it came down to that.

Roughly two-thirds of college students said they would be comfortable attending in-person classes come the fall semester, even without the On Tuesday night, the chancellor of the California State University system said he expects the vast majority of classes on the system's 23 campuses to be

While the NCAA’s decision this week to open voluntary workouts starting June 1 didn’t receive overwhelming support, a new survey shows college football players are happy with it.

In an anonymous poll of 45 college football players conducted by The Athletic, student-athletes weighed in on their comfort level on returning to campus. While there is some concern from players regarding their health, the support for the NCAA’s plan was overwhelming.

This doesn’t necessarily mean a rush back to campus for those three sports, as those decisions will be made in concert with state government, local government and university officials. But the vote on Wednesday afternoon by the NCAA Division I Council marks a significant step – both symbolically and in process – for the possibility of college football and other sports returning in the fall.

Sixty-five percent of students feel comfortable enough to attending in-person classes come the fall semester. On Tuesday night, the chancellor of the California State University system said he expects the vast majority of classes on the system's 23 campuses to be taught online in the fall.

Nearly 80 percent of student-athletes who took part in the survey said they were comfortable returning to campus, even with their fellow students stuck at home. In fact, 36 players voted that they aren’t worried or aren’t overly concerned about getting infected with the coronavirus.

The NCAA’s moratorium on voluntary athletic activities at college facilities will come to an end after May 31. Starting on June 1, student-athletes that play football, men’s basketball and women’s basketball can return to campus and take part in training.

However, the specific date will be up to each school, with the SEC approving to allow workouts on June 8.

While a majority of student-athletes support the measure, it hasn’t received universal approval from coaches. Oklahoma Sooners coach Lincoln Riley blasted schools that planned to bring student-athletes back on June 1.

Notably, 24 of the players surveyed said they would prefer to delay the start of the 2020 season if it was deemed unsafe for fans to attend in September.

Given the enormous financial loss the Power 5 schools would suffer if college football isn’t played, there remains a good chance that it will happen in the fall. Now, universities must determine how many fans they can allow in stadiums to ensure everyone’s safety by following social distancing guidelines.
