The Chicago Bears might benefit from a canceled college football season.
We are now within five weeks of the Chicago Bears playing a meaningful football game again. As we inch closer to the start of the NFL season, we have grown accustomed to Week 1 being precipitated by a slate of college football games to wet our collective whistles.
Unfortunately, the news out of the NCAA world seems to strongly suggest that there will not be a college football season, as the Big Ten has, at least according to one contested report, voted to cancel its season. If true, presumably, other conferences would quickly follow suit.
