SEC Commissioner: “We haven’t stopped trying” to play this fall

The Big Ten is now backtracking on reports that it has canceled the 2020 season, with another vote scheduled for tonight. In response, SEC Commissioner Greg Sankey is speaking out about his conference’s approach to the fall, suggesting that the league will continue to take its time with a decision.

Unlike other conferences, the SEC pushed back its opening games to September 26 for this very reason. SEC athletic directors and presidents are meeting virtually today to discuss the latest developments, and if Sankey’s tweet is any indication, the season isn’t dead yet.

    There is no try, only do or do not.

      I say this is understandably a very tough situation. Let’s give the guy some slack. He’s trying to keep the prospect of a football season alive against a great deal of momentum and push by his peers to have it done away with. I say he’s being prudent and that’s the best choice. Why rush a decision to not play. I say we can go forward with things and see where we are a month from now.

    Let’s rid all amateur sports. Focus on academics. Stop taking advantage of athletes and let them seek out trainers, facilities, medical insurance, and cutting edge sports medicine as they want. Go to work and eliminate a barely get by stipend for room and board. Let the athletes promote themselves with out the university holding them down. Pay for their own education and not be taken advantage of any longer. I agree with the players they need to be pd for what they make the schools. Let them do it on there own and reap all that they’ve earned.

    It’s early August. I don’t see a reason to make a premature decision on it
