On the same day President Trump said he would like to see pro sports start up on-time in August & September “with fans in the stands”, California’s Governor Gavin Newsom has come out on the opposite side of the table.
Newsom said he doesn’t anticipate stadiums full of fans come September in his state.
We all know much has to play out before any of us will know what really is going to happen five to six months from now; but clearly California leadership intends to be cautious.
One has to wonder how this will be handled by individual universities. For example, what if 8 schools in a given conference want to, or vote to play; but 4 will or can not?
A lot of things to play out in the coming months; but let’s all hope we are way past the “crest” of this thing within the next few months.
As always, stay tuned to The Scoop for the latest coaching new information.
