Arkansas AD Hunter Yurachek clarifies comments about starting 2020 season as scheduled
On Monday, Arkansas AD Hunter Yurachek spoke with the Arkansas Board of Trustees, saying that the Razorbacks were planning to play their first 2020 football game as scheduled on Sept. 5.
He added that the plan was to start practices in mid-July, and that obviously caught the attention of many fans who are eager for football to return.
However, on Monday evening, Yurachek took to Twitter to clarify his statements, saying that nothing was official yet:

Yurachek said the safety of the Razorback student-athletes remains the top priority, so they won’t start if it isn’t safe to do so.
Other ADs and university presidents have spoken about the start of the 2020 season soon, but nothing is definite as of yet. We’ll see what happens over the next few weeks.
