NCAA president Mark Emmert said Thursday there will not be any NCAA champions due to the number of schools that have bowed out for the fall season.

22 championships, including FCS football, are impacted as a result of this decision.

"The board of governors also established if you don't have half of the schools playing a sport, you can't have a legitimate championship," Emmert said in a video posted on the NCAA's Twitter feed. "We can't in any Division I NCAA championship sport now -- which is everything other than FBS football that goes on in the fall. Sadly, tragically, that's going to be the case this fall, full stop."

With the Big East announcing it will not be holding fall football games, the number fell below 50 percent.

"I'm not sure now that it impacts what we're doing in football that we've continued to move forward," said West Virginia athletic director Shane Lyons, chair of the NCAA's Football Oversight Committee. "Just because there's no championship at the end doesn't mean the whole fall is ruined for those student-athletes."

Emmert said the fall sports should still turn to the winter and spring and try to create a legitimate championship for all of those students.

"My staff has been working hard on it, and talking to a lot of commissioners -- all of them, all 32 of them in D-I, and there are ways to do this," he said. "I'm completely confident that we can figure this out. If schools and conferences want to move forward, and try and have it and more than half of them want to do it -- and that's surely the indication now -- then let's do it. We can use the fall and keep kids healthy, keep them engaged with their coaches and their athletic departments. Focus on their academic success. Work with them and let them practice and stay ready to play, then let's go compete at that time."
