While reactions to Lawrence’s tweet have been favorable, the same has not been true of Trump’s response.
Reactions range from blaming Trump for the pandemic – and possible cancellation of the season – to making fun of him for retweeting a student.
Many of them were just derogatory – not to mention profane.
The College Football Season Is Definitely Doomed Now
One thing’s clear: If Trump’s on board with the college football season, the majority of the country won’tbe.
Video: Sentiment is turning against playing college football this season.
And according to the latest rumors, the season may already be on the brink. UConn, the Big Sky Conference, and the Mid-American Conference already canceled their seasons. The Big Ten and Pac-12 are reportedly next.
Once those dominoes fall, there is a solid chance the rest of the Power Five conferences succumb to peer pressure.
That was true before Trump’s tweet – but it seems even more of a given now that he’s on their “side.”
