Barton Simmons Weighs in on the PAC 12 and BIG 10 Postponing the College Football Season


The CBS Sports National Writer for College Football and Director of Scouting for 24/7 Sports joined Kyle Bailey on the Clubhouse this morning to discuss the postponements of the BIG 10 and PAC 12 football seasons for the spring of 2021.

Barton reacted to the news saying it was depressing and sad and as a former college football player he feels for the guys to lose a whole season it's devastating. Barton also totally acknowledges that there is no easy answer here, but his issue is that he thinks the reasoning doesn't make sense.

Kyle asked Barton how he thinks a spring season will happen for both the Big 10 and Pac 12 and Barton responded:

"The NCAA has had since March to figure this stuff out, and they're just now looking at contingency plans and hypothetical's of what a spring season would look like. My skepticism for a spring season goes in line with the NCAA's lack to prepare for the possibility, but theoretically could work but it would have to be a shortened season."
