Phone lines are burning up right now I guarantee it. The SEC ACC and Big 12 seem pretty firm in moving forward. It seems the B1G was hoping to get more support from those leagues. Now you’ll have big money people calling who don’t want to look bad. You’ll have the 3 remaining conferences reaching out to those who want to play ( even though rumors say it was only 2 I’d wager there were more).

If the The Rock is able to get the XFL rolling in the spring it will serve the purpose of showcasing the layers to the NFL. They wouldn't need a spring season.College lacrosse teams at every level of the sport in the Northeast and New England, even as far north as Maine, play exposed to the elements in the dead of winter in February. Heck, when I was working in college athletics here in Virginia, we were clearing snow off the field an hour before game time with it snowing all throughout the game a couple years ago, and this was over "spring" break.
My beef with the spring season is that you are barely gaining 4 months to get the pandemic under control. Most of the proponents are suggesting training camp in Jan with season from February to April and bowls in May. Think about February weather up north. Typically college football is done by Thanksgiving with nothing but dome stadiums and palm trees for the remaining games. That won't be the case for the vast majority fo schools with open air stadiums.
Then there is the matter of trying to keep college kids with time on their hands out of trouble. We are still talking about 18- to 22-year-olds in most cases.
