680 THE FAN, ATLANTA – Want college football? Today just took a good step towards that happening

Remember when I said that people shouldn’t get discouraged against the season of the south happening? It’s looking more and more likely to this becoming a reality.

Just a short time ago, the NCAA’s Division One Council reportedly voted to allow the current moratorium on athletic activities to expire on May 31. This gives further belief to schools being ready to have their athletes back on campus as soon as June 1.

It is believed that players can come back to campus for voluntary workouts. The SEC is set to vote this Friday on whether to allow athletes back on June 1 or 15. On Tuesday night, Ohio State’s 247Sports.com‘s website ‘Bucknuts’ reported that Buckeye players can come back to campus on June 8th.

Do not mistake how huge this news is towards a 2020 football season happening. Getting players back on campus will allow for them to get back in shape, under the supervision of their program’s medical and nutritional staff.

The further belief of a season being on the way, is that schools have announced their intention to have students on campus for fall courses. This has been viewed as the way for football to be played in 2020-21.

Remember when ESPN’s Kirk Herbstreit voiced his opinion on the doubt that we would even see football this season? He has come almost a full 180 degrees on Tuesday evenings SportsCenter, when asked about the possibility of fans coming to games.

“My guess would be, if you had fans, are you going to just open it up and allow fans to be fans, which is tailgating, on top of each other, cheering? Are you going to let 25 percent of the stadium be full? Are you going to let 50 percent of the stadium be full?” Herbstreit said via Saturday Down South. “… If it comes to it, I guess we would have games without fans. But man, I know you guys love the sport like I do. I cannot imagine college football without fans in the stadium.”

As the days go by, it looks like the possibility for the college football season continues to grow stronger. Let’s get excited fans! Football looks like it is very much going to happen this season.

Of course, we do remind you that 680 The Fan is the ‘College Football Voice of the South.” Let’s make 2020 a much better year for reasons that we can all get behind.
