SMU’s Jones: Non-Power 5 teams should shun fall, play in spring
Friday morning, the NCAA released a new model for Division I that moves the Power 5 conferences closer to autonomy.
So with those ideas swirling, SMU head coach June Jones went on a Tampa, Florida, radio station and proposed his own radical idea for competing with college football’s heavy hitters.
If Power 5 teams will make their own rules, Jones’ theory goes, then the other teams should take matters into their own hands, too.
Jones’ big idea for doing that?
Move their college football seasons out of the fall and play them during the spring.
From Football Scoop:
As noted in Football Scoops’ piece, there’s a littany of potential logistical issues with this idea.
Those can be discussed later, but in the interim we need time to digest the central fact of this revelation:
June Jones doesn’t want to play football in the fall anymore.
