Welcome to SB Nation Reacts, a survey of fans across the NCAA. Each week, we send out questions to the most plugged in Wisconsin Badgers fans, and fans across the country. Sign up here to join Reacts.
Before students even return to Madison this fall, COVID-19 is already casting a shadow over the 2020 college football season. Depending on how things develop, that shadow could blot out an entire season at our beloved Camp Randall Stadium and possibly beyond.
According to the latest SB Nation Reacts survey, fans are not only aware of that possibility but many expect it to happen.
Just over one-third of fans expect the 2020 season to be canceled entirely. Another 32 percent of fans think the season will be moved to the spring of 2021. The remaining 34 percent of fans think the NCAA will be able to pull off a conference-only or regional schedule which is what the Big Ten, MAC and PAC-12 conferences already have announced and are discussing with plans to be coming in the following weeks.
There is slightly more confidence in the success of the basketball season. The typical season starts in early November, but is proceeded by preseason games.
More than a third of fans believe the basketball season will have a delayed start, but will be completed. 27 percent of fans think the basketball season will be conference only and 16 percent think the basketball season will also be canceled. Only 10 percent believe the season will go off without any changes. It appears fans across the country believe college basketball may have the most form of normalcy. Fingers crossed so the Kohl Center can be rocking this winter.
