Joel Klatt: There will 100 percent be a college football season
FOX college football analyst Joel Klatt is bullish on a 2020 season.
Klatt, who doesn’t tweet very often, shared a few thoughts on Twitter Saturday about the upcoming season. He says it is happening and that there will be fans at many locations.
Some CFB thoughts:
– The 2020 season is 100% happening
– Fans will be in the stands to some capacity at most locations
– The season will likely start on time

This is great news for college football fans, and much different than the sentiment shared by an analyst at a rival network.
While the coronavirus still poses a significant threat to many people in the country — namely, the elderly and those with underlying health conditions — stats have shown it is not especially hazardous to college-aged people.
I feel terrible for the Akron athletes that are losing their sport and scholarship today as a result of our response to this virus.
Keep in mind these athletes are over 150X more likely to be murdered or commit suicide than die from Covid-19 according to @CDCgov data

A lot can and will change from now until September, but the thought of a season taking place is comforting for many of the sport’s fans.
