ACC commissioner John Swofford spoke with reporters last week on a variety of topics, including the the league’s plans for a possible 2020 football season, amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
During that session, Swofford brought up some of the contingencies the ACC will consider; however, the commissioner also noted that he couldn’t imagine football sans students on campus, too.
John Swofford on the possibility of football returning without students back on campus: "That seems foreign to me. … Most people I talk with in college athletics and higher education agree that’s a foreign thought to most of us."
