For once, Kentucky Wildcats fans may like what Louisville Cardinals head coach Scott Satterfield had to say Monday amid the developments surrounding the Big Ten’s plans to postpone the 2020 college football season.
In a virtual press conference Monday, Satterfield said the ACC plans to go through with a season regardless of what other conferences such as the Big Ten decide.

Satterfield also ripped conference commissioners who just recently released their 2020 schedules for quickly altering plans saying,
“That’s not leadership. We had months to plan out how we’re gonna come back, how we’re doing this & we’ve been doing it. Our kids have been doing it at a very high standard.”
This comes after the ACC’s top player in Clemson’s Trevor Lawrence helped form a movement using the hashtag ‘we want to play’ after a Sports Illustrated report signaled all power-five conferences were set to shut the season down.
Many of Satterfield’s Cardinals’ also took to Twitter to back the movement, including quarterback Micale Cunningham and linebacker C.J. Avery.
With the Big Ten’s hopes of making a uniformed decision to postpone the season with all power-five decisions slowly fading, the chances for both a Kentucky Football season have some new life.
