SEC commissioner Greg Sankey spoke to ESPN and said that he is worried about the college football season due COVID-19 pandemic. Per ProFootballTalk:
quote:

SEC commissioner Greg Sankey said today that his level of concern is “high to very high.”

“We put a medical advisory group together in early April with the question ‘What do we have to do to get back to activity?’ and they’ve been a big part of the conversation,” Sankey told ESPN. “But, the direct reality is not good and the notion that we’ve politicized medical guidance of distancing, and breathing masks, and hand sanitization, ventilation of being outside, being careful where you are in buildings. There’s some very clear advice about — you can’t mitigate and eliminate every risk but how do you minimize the risk? . . . We are running out of time to correct and get things right and as a society, we owe it to each other to be as healthy as we can be.”

Sankey said he is still working on getting the season started as scheduled, but he has to acknowledge that the situation — particularly in some of the states where SEC schools are located — is grim.

“I’m going to focus on preparing to play the season as scheduled but acknowledge the circumstances around coronavirus are going to guide us in that decision making,” Sankey said. “And the reality right now is the trends in our region in our nation are not in the positive direction for being able to have normal experiences.”

He’s from New York. He is a progressive plant sent to the SEC to destroy our culture.

Just cancel the 2020 season and give the players another year of eligibility if they want it. Stop pussy footing around things! And forget about this spring football nonsense. Start anew with the 2021 season next fall. Problem solved.

The 85 limit would have to be increased by the ncaa to make this happen.

It’s everyone who can’t enjoy a beer at home instead of at a bar’s fault, not Sankey’s.

If you go to a game and come home from being in the weather to later get sick, do you stop going at all. No, you get well, then go back. This notion of sealing off every one till the plague passes by is idiotic and hurtful to all.

Weak Commissioner.

Aww he's pouty because he may not have football and is going to blame the adult who has to be responsible. I too want football but am wise enough to realize if it doesn't happen that it's not because the commissioner is weak. In fact, it's just the opposite, as other conferences are starting to cave and the SEC is hanging on until a decision absolutely has to be made.
