Kentucky Wildcats Morning Quickies: A Football Season Still In Doubt Edition

New, 34 comments

Most college sports fans are hoping for a season, any kind of season. We seem to be moving that way, but lurching in fits, starts, and shivers.

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

Today, I am on vacation, which consists of sitting at home and working around the house rather than haring off to Myrtle Beach or Florida or some other destination. Coronavirus, you know. That, plus the unfortunate fact of my age make it advisable to spend my first vacation in decades at home. So far, it’s been just fine.

Speaking of the pandemic, it seems that college football is still waffling around with the decision to start the season more or less on time, or at all. That’s certainly understandable with the current spikes we are seeing in places across the country, and the cases being discovered on the teams as we move forward with some form of pre-season practice.

This promises to be a football season unlike any other that we have seen in our lifetimes, with stadiums at 50% or less capacity (and some may not even have fans), weekly players coming and going off the roster with SARS CoV-2 infections and recovery, and all sorts of strangeness related to the pandemic. Part of me is really looking forward to it, and another part is not.

Well, that’s the strange dichotomy of the moment in time we currently share. One day we will look back on all this in wonder and perform our perfect 20/20 hindsight postmortem, blaming some we currently cheer and cheering some we currently blame, all with the approximate self-awareness of a gnat.

Isn’t “living in interesting times” fun?

Kudos to Matt Jones for the sharp eyes.

and...

My answer is... hope for the best, prepare for the worst. Yes, I know it’s not there, but I’m contrarian like that...
