As news broke Tuesday that the Pac-12 Conference has postponed fall sports, Twitter users naturally reacted.

Most notably, a few University of Utah football players shared their thoughts about the news soon after it was made official.

Chad Fotheringham, the father of Utah tight end Cole Fotheringham, has been vocal on Twitter recently about college football’s potential return, and he shared some thoughts about the news.

A number of Ute fans immediately shared a variety of thoughts, from serious to funny.

As former Utah basketball player Jeremy Olsen observed, moving fall sports to the spring will have logistical ramifications for the 2021 fall season as well.

Not only that, but the 2020-2021 basketball season won’t be starting on time either, meaning the Utah-BYU game presumably won’t be played, as Cougars voice Greg Wrubell observed.
