I think you're actually more likely to have some conferences reverse course and try for a shortened Fall season than you are to have a shortened spring season.
As the Chicken Little Conferences watch the SEC rake in even more money this fall as their Athletic Departments fall further into the red, they might get jealous and try for a Nov/Dec shortened season.
But I don't think any of these scenarios is happening. By citing some doctor on potential long term harm to the heart muscle, they've painted themselves into a hard corner here and they're not getting out because the long-term studies on the heart issue won't be completed by late fall or by spring.
If they were going to have football, they'd have to find a way disavow that medical advice and tell everyone to ignore what they said just a few months prior.
