The Big Ten is now starting to backtrack from reports that they plan to cancel or postpone this coming football season. All awhile that league is seeming in shambles, SEC Commissioner Greg Sankey went to Twitter to suggest they would take their time when it comes to deciding whether playing this fall is the best decision or not.
“Can we play? I don’t know. We haven’t stopped trying,” Sankey said.
Here is the commissioner’s series of tweets expressing his thoughts on the fluid situation surrounding college sports:
…Deveoped testing protocols…We know concerns remain. We have never had a FB season in a COVID-19 environment. Can we play? I don’t know. We haven’t stopped trying. We support, educate and care for student-athletes every day, and will continue to do so…every day.

The SEC is planned to begin play on the weekend of Sept. 26, giving them extra time to decipher how to go about playing football. Athletic directors and presidents met virtually on Monday to discuss the matter, so we will probably hear more of an official response today.
