Steve Spurrier Had Some Advice For The BIG 10 Conference
Matt Stamey-USA TODAY Sports
Steve Spurrier has a bunch of advice for conferences choosing to play football this fall and those who are not, like the BIG 10 conference...

“With three of the Power Five conferences ready to play, I think we can have college football,” Spurrier said Wednesday. “I really do. If we have to watch on television, so be it. These guys are pretty safe. They really are, Paul. It reminds me of the movie, ‘The Longest Yard,’ with Burt Reynolds and all of those guys. Right now, the college football players, they are the prisoners. They’ve got nowhere to go but to practice and back to their cell, or their dorm and eat together. That’s the way all of these teams have been living for the last couple of months or so.

“I believe they all have a right and deserve to go play the game. They want to play; they want to compete against the other guys. Most people nowadays live, let’s say, 80 years and these young men have four years to play college football. You’d hate to miss one here and there if you don’t have to. I hope something can be worked out that the Big Ten could come back. Because only three conferences playing would be a little unusual.”

He and other coaches are right. The players are safer in the football programs than back at home. They are tested regularly, fed properly, exercise accordingly and if anyone tests positive, they are quarantined. That's more attention to their health than they get at home.
