If you’ve been reading Outkick the last couple days you know the world of college football is changing fast. The Big Ten and Pac-12 seemed poised to imminently cancel their season, and now we’re not so sure. The SEC isn’t making any rash decisions in favor of canceling or playing. If Louisville football head coach Scott Scatterfield speaks for the ACC, they’re not either.
“What we understand is the ACC is moving forward,” Satterfield said in a virtual news conference today, as transcribed by 247. “So, that’s where we are now … We know how things change and how fluid it is. We’d like to get something definitive, just for our mental sake.”
Satterfield’s thoughts are interesting because Louisville athletics had a big coronavirus outbreak in which several players of the soccer team were dismissed for throwing a party. While this didn’t affect the football team, he’s had a pretty close look at what happens when there’s an outbreak.
It sure seems like the SEC and ACC are in lockstep — they may not be able to get the season in, but it’s also too soon to throw in the towel. The Big 12 has been harder to get a read on today.
