Ray Anderson says there is no deadline or imminent event that will trigger a decision.

Reading the tea leaves, the players report to camps in August. Something has to happen by then, and likely it will come sooner. Advertising and TV carriage can be flexible. Fans-in-stands is similarly flexible, i.e. they could invite everyone or tell everyone to stay home and reverse course on a whim. Academically, decisions about classes will come much sooner. So the strongest bellwether in advance of an actual decision on football is to look at the academic calendars of the Power 5 schools. Diversity of calendars is bad news, because it suggests delay of sports.
