SEC Commissioner Greg Sankey was on The Paul Finebaum show this week and was asked about when he thinks College Sports could return. Here's what he had to say. Per 247Sports:

“The very direct, simple answer is the Dr. Fauci comment … ‘we’re not gonna determine the timeline, the virus will determine the timeline,’” Sankey said. “And you can see the developing information just knowing what we know about science, how rapidly knowledge can develop; there are still unknowns. We’re gonna rely exactly on our public health officials and the people around our campuses communities to guide us to return to what we’ve known as normal.”

Finebaum also asked Sankey if there was a deadline when a decision on whether a full college football season could happen.

“That is the type of information that we’re soliciting right now,” Sankey said. “Using our football coaches’ knowledge, we’re actually putting together a group and our last two presidents and chancellors call, we’ve asked for a combination of sports medicine focus leaders from our campuses, those who work in the epidemiology and disease area and our athletic trainers. So a combination of people who are experienced in these areas who have the right training.

“We’ll take the input from our coaching leaders … but we wanted to use the science information around the virus that’s being treated across the country and that’s guided how we’re living. When we understand more about those decision-making benchmarks, how do they inform our preparations. So people talk about six weeks or back to 10 weeks, I look at is as a range right now without looking at absolutes because there’s so much at the moment that’s not absolute.”
