Wefald told Paul Finebaum the season likely won’t happen if there isn’t a cure by July for coronavirus, and explained, “We are on a track right now that makes it highly unlikely that we are going to play football this year.”

It’s hard for me to believe this is even a real situation. If you told me two months ago that we’d be in this situation, I would have called you crazy.
Well, it’s now early April 2020, and it looks like it’ll be a miracle at this point if the college football season goes off as planned.

I know a lot of coaches are trying to stay as optimistic as possible, but optimism only gets you so far in this life.
Eventually, you need results. Right now, I’m not seeing a whole lot of results in the war against coronavirus that make me believe we’ll be playing in September.
