SEC media days will occur virtually this year.

According to a release from the conference, the event planned to happen in Atlanta starting July 13 will happen online instead because of the coronavirus pandemic. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

It was expected that the SEC would go virtual after many other conferences made the call, but they certainly held out until the last minute.

As I said when every other conference did the same, having virtual media days is a small sacrifice to make during the war against coronavirus.

In the grand scheme of things, it will have very little impact on the season happening. Sure, it’s annoying and unfortunate, but it won’t derail games from happening.

As long as action is underway Saturdays in the fall, then I’ll sacrifice just about anything. You might think I’m kidding, but I’m not.

I would trade just about anything for the guarantee of college football. I already said I’d give up sex for a year. If I’m willing to do that, you best believe I’ll give up media days happening in-person.

We’re almost out of the woods in this war, and I can’t wait to watch some football this fall. Props to everyone out there fighting the good fight.
