The punches just never stop coming during 2020. We’re dealing with coronavirus in the world of college football, and now, Alabama vs. Ole Miss has been slightly delayed because of a hurricane.

Imagine beating coronavirus to the point you can play football, and now you have to battle a hurricane.

What a wild time to be alive!

Obviously, I want everyone to be safe in Oxford, but I also kind of hope there’s a bit of rain for the game.

At the very least, I hope there’s a ton of rain before the game. There’s nothing better than a super muddy football field.

That will get people amped up and juiced for a little action in the mud down in the SEC.
