This Friday is a big day for SEC football fans, as they hope to find out how the league feels about the virus.  May 22nd has been circled on the calendar to decide if SEC schools can "open their athletic facilities as early as June 1st," as reported by CBS Sports.

A medical task force comprised of professionals from the SEC, including Alabama's Head Team Physician, Dr. Robinson, has a mission of "guiding the safe return to on-campus athletic activities," according to CBS Sports.  On AL.com, Alabama's Athletic Director, Greg Byrne, stated the task force "will be guiding us in the decision-making collectively as college sports goes."

In a recent press release, SEC Commissioner, Greg Sankey, stated, "The expertise of these medical professionals is playing an important role in our continuing focus on the health and well-being of SEC student-athletes."

He also said other things, but I started watching Youtube videos of Alabama versus Tennessee.  I get tired of the talk and just wanna see some football. #WildBillShow
