That’s right, coronavirus and the losers trying to cancel the season threw everything they had at college football, and it wasn’t good enough to stop us.

Sure, things didn’t look great when the Big 10 and PAC-12 packed it in. Those were some dark days, but that’s why we fought like hell to save the season.

After weeks and weeks in the trenches, all P5 teams are playing this fall. If that’s not a win, then I don’t know what is.

We’ve had some bad days over the past six and a half months in America. That’s just the reality of the situation, and it’s okay to admit it.

Now, football is back to as normal as it can get during a pandemic. They tried like hell stop us, and I refused to break.

Don’t test the will, spirit and resolve of college football fans. We were built and bred for this. Coronavirus challenged us, and lost in a big way. Let’s keep the momentum rolling.
