People are upset, depressed, broken, lost and confused as we navigate the uncharted territory coronavirus has led us into.

Given the state of things, I thought it’d be a great time for a little flashback to when College GameDay stars Rece Davis and David Pollack explained the importance of football.

If there was ever a time to hear there message, it’s right now. Give it a watch below.

I know simply watching a video won’t fix everything. That’s obviously never going to be the case. We’re in a war right now against a virus.

So many people out there are doing everything they can to win the good fight, and I have no doubt we will. It’s just going to take a whole hell of a lot of hard work to get it done.

Once we win this fight, we’ll get our sports and football back, and you see an atmosphere you couldn’t have dreamed of before. Just hang in there, folks. We’re going to beat this damn virus.
