As the final seconds ticked away in the SEC Championship Game, a sense of celebration transcended through the television screen. It wasn’t a celebration. My team had won because I didn’t have a dog in the fight. It was a celebration for defeating the narrative and getting through one of the best college football seasons to date. It wasn’t easy, but we made it. I’m so dang proud of the entire sport itself and everybody who fought like heck to make this season possible. This season was made possible by people who love the great game of College Football. As one voice united with a common goal of playing football this season, we made this season special.
Despite what some may or may not say, this college football season has been a smashing success despite the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic. We had cancellations and a few postponements along the way, and even a few players here and there opting out in the middle of the season. Despite all of that and then some, this season will go down in the record books as one of the greatest College Football seasons of all-time.
This season meant so much to so many people. Having College Football this fall just felt right. It gave the everyday person something to look forward to every week. It also gave this country hope during such a difficult time in our history. Sure, we all might not have been able to see our favorite team in person this fall, but we made the best out of it. We created new traditions with family and friends at home.
Most importantly, we made it through an entire season when they said it wouldn’t be possible. The student-athletes, the support staff, and the coaches all had to make sacrifices to make this season work. This season was different but spectacular at the same time and will be remembered for years to come.
As we round the corner to Bowl season and turn the page on this season, let’s not forget the struggles and hardships that made the 2020 College Football so special.
With Bowl season in full swing and an off-season looming on the horizon, let’s come together one last time to celebrate this season for what it’s worth, and set the tone for the upcoming 2021 College Football season.
