The SEC plans on having football games underway as scheduled by early September.

As we continue to wage war against coronavirus, many people want to know whether or not football will happen as scheduled. It looked like we won the war, but a flare up of positive tests through the sport has everyone a bit nervous. Well, the SEC is pushing forward.

A conference spokesperson told 247Sports that the SEC is “focused on playing the 2020 football season as scheduled beginning Labor Day Weekend.”

Say whatever you want about the SEC and football teams in the south, but the Big 10 has no better ally in the war against coronavirus.

Short of a nuclear war breaking out in the United States, there might not be anything on this planet capable of stopping LSU, Alabama, Georgia and Auburn from playing football in the fall.

Is there a pandemic going on right now? There most certainly is. Will it bring the SEC to its knees? Most certainly not.

I love how everyone is nervous and talking about what will happen, and the SEC is just pushing the throttle to the floor.

It’s not a secret that I hate the SEC, but I’m walking arm-in-arm with my brothers in the south during the war against coronavirus.

As soon as the games start, we can be enemies again. Until then, we’re in this war together.
