Former Kansas State University president Jon Wefald doesn’t think the college football season will happen.

As of this moment, there’s not a single major sport happening in America, and football seems to be in greater trouble with every passing day as fears about the virus continue to grow. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

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.

Keep checking back for more updates when we have them. Let’s all say a prayer this situation fixes itself sooner than later.
