Currently Cardinal, 10/5: Schedule reactions all over

The Card’s 2020 football schedule has certainly drawn out the reactions, good and bad

The Stanford Cardinal are set to play a six-game schedule with a seventh seeded game coming during the Pac-12 Championship Week. We know who the Card are playing, we know the dates and the locations. While we don’t know the seventh game yet and will have to wait for the season to unfold, we still don’t know and will have to see who each team dresses come game time as well.

One thing we’ve seen from the teams who have suited up to play football this year, is that nothing is certain during a season in the middle of a global pandemic. Players are out due to false tests, due to positive tests or simply being near someone with positive tests. Coronavirus contact tracing is a real issue with some schools and teams have had to maneuver games around or postpone and cancel games as soon as two-three days ahead of a scheduled matchup.

While the Pac-12 has released their full schedules and announced daily testing for all 12 member programs, one thing is for certain: nothing is certain in this season.

Let’s take a look at some of the reactions from around the country after Stanford released their six-game schedule.

As a reminder, here’s the schedule:

Week 1 — Saturday, November 7 — @ Oregon Ducks

Week 2 — Saturday, November 14 — vs Colorado Buffaloes

Week 3 — Saturday, November 21 — vs Washington State Cougars

Week 4 — Friday, November 27 — @ California Golden Bears

Week 5 — Saturday, December 5 — @ Washington Huskies

Week 6 — Saturday, December 12 — vs Oregon State Beavers
