    At my beloved Indiana U. they always take overhead photos of the football stadium when Ohio State is visiting. All the seats full, and all red.

    That will be up to the Big East. UConn has a conference in other sports.

    IU PR (or someone they hired) was flying a drone in 2009 to take stadium shots when Ohio State was there for a night game. First time I'd seen a drone.

    I hope they didn't do it last year, though -- very small crowd.

    I know, no outing, but Eric Sondheimer of the LA Times must have a sock puppet here. Or, "we can get sick just as hard as the football players."

    No fall football for two more FCS conferences: Big Sky and Pioneer League.

    Does that mean a majority of FCS leagues are out?

    Trending that way. D2 and D3 already opted out of fall sports championships.

    D2 Rocky Mountain pushed back fall sports to spring.

    Outside of the FBS schools, only college football still scheduled to play in the Northwest this fall is the Frontier Conference in the NAIA — and that would be just the five Montana schools, all playing each other twice for an eight-game season. The two Frontier schools in Oregon and the one in Idaho are postponing football to spring.
