ESPN analyst Kirk Herbstreit has stated he believes the NFL and college football will cancel their 2020 seasons due to the Wuhan Virus. Oh Lord, please let this be true!
ESPN analyst Kirk Herbstreit says that he would be “shocked” if the NFL or college football, plays a single game in 2020.
“I’ll be shocked if we have NFL football this fall, if we have college football. I’ll be so surprised if that happens,” the College Gameday host said, according to TMZ.
“Just because from what I understand, people that I listen to, you’re 12 to 18 months from a [coronavirus] vaccine. I don’t know how you let these guys go into locker rooms and let stadiums be filled up and how you can play ball. I just don’t know how you can do it with the optics of it,” Herbstreit continued.
Herbstreit reminded his audience that it takes time to gear up and plan for a season of games. “You don’t all of the sudden come up with something in July or August,” he said, noting that it takes many months in advance to plan a season.
Look, I’ve already effectively lost the NHL, and Kyle and Erik lost their lacrosse seasons, so the least I could get is seeing the NFL skip a season, too.
