Dabo Swinney was recently presented a question about the coronavirus’ effect on the 2020 college football season, and the National title-winning coach gave a ra-ra type of speech.
“My preference is let’s get to work and go play,” Swinney said. “That’s the best-case scenario, and I think that’s what’s going to happen. I don’t have any doubt. I have zero doubt that we’re going to be playing and the stands are going to be packed.”
The Clemson Tigers head football coach stated that he “one plan” going forward, and that’s getting his team ready to play in the fall.
“That’s just my mindset. I’ve got one plan, and that’s to get the Tigers ready to play in late August, early September,” Swinney said. “I’ll leave it to the smart people to figure out the doomsday scenarios. We’ve got one scenario, and that’s to run down that hill and kick it off in the valley.”
He then went on to share that he and his family recently traveled by private plane down to Florida for vacation. Not only that, they have plans to travel for Easter next week as well.
As expected, he got blasted for not taking the coronavirus seriously.
The 2020 college football season starting as scheduled is highly unlikely, especially if a vaccine hasn’t been found by then. Even if it has started on time, you can fully expect stadiums filled with nothing but seats.
