2020 Colorado Football Schedule & Future Schedules

I guess I’m just confused about what options they could possibly be weighing that are causing a delay in releasing the schedule.
given that the Pac 12 has been, by far, the most conservative P5 conference during Covid, I wouldn't be surprised if some schools are questioning whether it's too early to commit to a 2021 season

Agree with what you are saying. By the time football season starts a good chunk of the country could have been vaccinated by that time. Honestly the Pac-12 should go with a full schedule regardless of what is going on right now. If not, they will continue to be viewed as a joke of a conference by the rest of the country east of the Rockies. Also that could affect the media rights discussions with networks.

As we saw last year, this can easily be changed if something happens with COVID. For now, the wise thing to do is to plan for 12 games.

I agree that the PAC should plan for a full season at this point. The President is predicting that all adults should be able to get vaccinated by early summer so they even have a cushion to work with.

The balance to that is that most PAC decisions are driven by the California schools and California is currently struggling with Covid compared to much of the rest of the nation. It may be hard to see getting much cooperation from the state or local governments there until they see some real results in controlling the pandemic in the communities there.
