This is music to my ears! Add it to the list! Add it to the list of schools joining the frontlines of the war against coronavirus.

As much as I dislike the SEC, I’m proud to stand with Auburn in this fight. Welcome to battle. It’s about time some damn reinforcements arrived.

I’ve been out here fighting for college football all by myself for the past two months.

At the end of the day, people in Alabama simply aren’t going to tolerate football not happening. That’s just a fact and it’s not up for debate.

The great people of Alabama would probably rather get coronavirus than be safe without football. You think I’m joking.

I can promise you I’m not. I know many people from the wonderful state and they’re addicted to football on Saturdays in the fall.
