When Does Kirk Herbstreit Think College Football & NFL Will Be Played Again?
Matthew O'Haren-USA TODAY Sports
College Gameday host Kirk Herbstreit was on ESPN radio Thursday night sharing his thoughts on when football will be played again...

"I'll be shocked if we have NFL football this fall, if we have college football. I'll be so surprised if that happens," Kirk said.

"Just because from what I understand, people that I listen to, you're 12 to 18 months from a [coronavirus] vaccine. I don't know how you let these guys go into locker rooms and let stadiums be filled up and how you can play ball. I just don't know how you can do it with the optics of it."

Kirk said if he was the NFL commish or in charge of the NCAA, he would shut it down ASAP -- "Next thing you know you got a locker room full of guys that are sick. And that's on your watch? I wouldn't want to have that."

"As much as I hate to say it, I think we're scratching the surface of where this thing's gonna go.".

"You don't all of the sudden come up with something in July or August and say, 'Okay we're good to go' and turn 'em loose!"

LSU will win back to back NC's. I'm cool with the season not being played.

Part of the problem is that while experts seem to suggest that this virus will wane in the summer they are expecting it to ramp up again in the fall. If that does happen...goodbye football.

Kirk may be right and he may be wrong but he should stick to what he knows.

We seem to be listening to different people. According to infectious disease doctors they are saying the meds seem to be working. There is no way it will take 12 months. Maybe that’s why Herbie should just stick to football.

Something happening six months from now would shock him? You can tell he's used to sensationalizing.
