'By September, the world is going to need football,' Oklahoma coach Lincoln Riley says

The Oklahoman

NORMAN, Okla. — Lincoln Riley can’t imagine a fall without football.

“I feel by September, the world is going to need football,” the Oklahoma football coach said Tuesday on a conference call with reporters. “Hopefully, I think a lot of that will be determined by our country’s response to this and how serious every single person takes it. Hopefully we, as a country, can do the best we can.”

Riley, like plenty of other coaches around the country, is still adjusting to the strange reality of a world without sports.
