Kentucky Wildcats Morning Quickies: To Football Or Not To Football Edition

New, 55 comments

Many highly-knowledgeable people including the SEC commissioner are now doubtful that the college football season will happen. Fans are waiting for the penny to drop, but most still have their fingers crossed.

Good morning, ladies and gentlemen of the Big Blue Nation, and welcome to the Tuesday Morning Quickies.

As you are all no doubt aware, the big conversation now in college sports due to the sudden increased case rate in COVID-19 cases are whether or not there will be a college football season at all. For most of the summer to date, it seemed like it was a fair bet, if not a sure thing, that football would actually happen this year. But now, circumstances have conspired to place all that into not just doubt, but outright pessimism.

SEC and Alabama maven Paul Finebaum has been doubtful about the season since it was announced that it will go forward. Several leagues, including the Big Ten and Pac-12 have announced conference-only football schedules, and he says the other conferences who have not done so are ”...hoping for a miracle right now...”.

At this point, aren’t we all? And the thing that really gets me is that this is a year when Kentucky could really be a threat to do something special, at least by the Kentucky definition of “special.” Which makes it all the more difficult to imagine, and stomach, that the 2020 football and even basketball season may never happen.
