Rather overshadow than cancel
But I know which sport I would be at if it's ran at the same time, and it won't be football
In fact I may prefer it that way, if football is running all the administration at Columbia will be too busy watching football and won't be at softball bothering me
Hornet, I agree with your thinking. However, if I remember correctly, in one or two of the FHSAA meetings from last month, some of the board members discussed the problem that schools were having with getting on the golf courses they traditionally have used. I don't know if they were talking about public courses, private courses or both and I don't know whether that situation has gotten better over the last month or so. But I do remember golf and bowling being somewhat problematic because of venue concerns.
I know where you're coming from, but to be realistic, football is king. If they have to rearrange every other team's schedule to allow for football, they will. Spring may see every sport trying to squeeze in their schedule; the casualties are going to be the multi-sport athletes. Also if football is moved to Spring, it will overshadow all the other sports.
I watched him scrimmage against Winter Park as a sophomore; he was almost unstoppable. Also watched him play 7v7 this past winter against some of the best 7v7 all-star teams in Central Florida. This was a man playing against boys, and he was just a sophomore. If the kid from Madison is half as talented, he's pretty good.
I would be fine with watching softball and baseball this fall if I thought they would actually get to play
However I feel what would happen is they will move it and a few weeks from now they will cancel it and leave spring sports as a casualty of the virus for the second straight season which isn't okay with me
