SEC Implores Football Fans to Wear Masks

I'll preface this as saying that I still believe there will be a football season and I still believe there will be one for the SEC. However, SEC commissioner Greg Sankey expressed concerns about the existence of football season in an interview with ESPN Radio over the weekend, and now the conference has released this video of their coaches wearing masks and imploring their viewers to do so as well:

We continue to be in a weird spot with Covid-19 where cases are escalating and deaths are substantially lower since the peak. There has been a high level of opposition to wearing masks in certain regions, but perhaps that sentiment will begin to shift now that President Trump conspicuously began wearing one this past weekend.

The message in this video is not directly stated but is explicit nonetheless: Wear masks, or SEC Football could be in jeopardy.
