Paul Finebaum reacts to recent postponements on college campuses: 'The reality is that the college football season is slipping away'
Paul Finebaum doesn’t like what he’s been seeing in the news.
During a recent appearance on ESPN morning show “Get Up,” the SEC Network host continued his pessimistic feelings when it comes to the upcoming college football season after seeing the Ivy League announce its football season will move to the spring and Ohio State and North Carolina shut down practice due to the coronavirus.
“It is a dreadful indicator for college football and I think what you heard [Greg] Sankey say there a minute ago was fascinating and he’s talking about reality now and I think it’s about time that commissioners and athletic directors and football coaches start dealing with the reality,” Finebaum said. “And the reality is that the college football season is slipping away.
“They can hold on hope, but if you look at what is going on in the country, it is dreadful news and yesterday with not only the Ivy League story but the story at Ohio State of North Carolina shutting down practice, at least temporarily, it was the worst day college athletics has had since that March day when the whole world shut down and I don’t see it getting any better.”
Here’s a clip from the show where Finebaum shares his thoughts on the subject.
