After a lengthy meeting on Tuesday (Aug. 4), the NCAA Board of Governors decided not to vote of fall sports championships. The BOG, which features representation from all three levels of college sports (Division I-III), would prefer that each Division decide how to proceed with fall sports.
This is huge news for potentially having FBS football in fall because Division I schools have more resources – & more at stake – to try and play fall sports than Division II & III schools, sources told @Stadium https://t.co/A19VO8G2oJ

In instances such as this, money is the logical place to start. From a cash standpoint, Division I sports are obviously operating with different perspective — both in terms of constraints and motive.
Reports surfaced last week that Power Fiver leaders were considering the possibility of putting on their own fall sports championships — a move that would put pressure on the NCAA.
The Division I Board of Directors is set to meet today (Aug. 5). There’s no guarantee that the BOD will vote on Wednesday; however, the decision to play Division I fall sports now belongs to them.
Division I Board of Directors meets tomorrow, btw https://t.co/7sE30pDcxL
