I managed to find the dark lining in this announcement.

With the scheduling of the College Cups for the next 5 years (2017-2021), I think it lessens the prospects that the NCAA will adopt a Fall/Spring season with the championship taking place in the Spring.  While it doesn't preclude the NCAA from adopting the change during this window, doing so would add the complication of changing the dates for venues that bid on and were awarded hosting privileges.
