2020 Fall Sports Played in Spring 2021?

One of the hundred scenarios I've seen suggested was to move the football season to spring of 2021. I wonder how many sports could an athletic department handle at one time? Can you imagine having football, M & W soccer and field hockey all going on along with the end of the basketball season and starting usual spring sports?

If college campuses can't be opemed in the Fall, i don't know that the Winter Spoerts could be played either. For example, Basketball practice starts by NLT early Nov, so how could you have a Basketball season? So (assuming it was safe to open the cmpuses in Jan) all of the Winter Sports could start in Jan and end in April and the Fall & Spring Sports could theoretically start in Feb-Mar and end in May-Jun. In addtion to whether an athletic department & facilities could cover all of these overlapping sports in the same timeframe, what would happen in Fall 2021? For example, how could FB end their season in May-Jun and then turnaround and open camp in Aug and start their next season in Sep, only 3-4 months later?
