The season hasn't always started in late August or the beginning of September as it does today. During WWI it usually started in October and by WWII, it was starting on the last weekend in September. When I attended USC, it started on the third weekend of September. I don't foresee extending it beyond December, because in must parts of the country the weather would be too cold for football. gubo&palanka likes this.
