Auburn president: 'We're going to have football this fall'
With so much up in the air regarding fall college sports, Auburn president Jay Gogue delivered an admissions greeting for students. The university shared it from its YouTube account Wednesday evening.
Currently, several college football scenarios are on the table and are being discussed. There’s a potential the season goes on like normal, as well as the season being delayed a month. There’s also been discussion of a fall and spring season split, as well as a full spring season.
By June, everyone should have a much better idea of what to expect this fall for college football.
Gogue, however, proclaimed that Auburn is going to play football.
“I’m Jay Gogue, president of Auburn University, and I just wanted to chat with you for a few minutes,” he said. “We’re going to open classes this fall. We’re going to have fraternity and sorority activities. We’re going to have more than 500 club activities that will be underway with student participation and leadership. We’re going to have convocation. We’re going to have popsicles and pizza with the president. We’re going to have football this fall. We’re going to have all the activities that we have every fall.”
This is certainly optimistic news from the Auburn president. Similarly, LSU athletic director Scott Woodward announced Wednesday night that he’s hoping to welcome back football players in June.
College football 2020 is looking more and more likely as we sit here in the middle of May.
