A weary public needs college athletics, start making plans

By Ed Peak

A report from NCAA President Mark Emmert about the upcoming college football season is disturbing and depressing. Four months from opening weekend. Much can and will happen between now and September.

“All of the commissioners and every president that I’ve talked to is in clear agreement: If you don’t have students on campus,” said Emmert in an interview with The Spun. “If your school doesn’t reopen, then they’re not going to be playing sports. It’s really that simple.”

We get it. The coronavirus has affected everyone like no one dreamed. But for goodness sakes.
