Whether it’s in the form of statements or videos so many college football programs have released some type of statement on where they stand on social issues in the wake of George Floyd’s death and the protests that have taken place around America.

“In this moment in history, we cannot be silent. We must speak up for our brothers and sisters, and for our sons and daughters,” Saban shares in the clip.
