This Week with the Crimson Tide: It Could be a Big One for Alabama and College Football

Christopher Walsh

It’s the first full week of July, which means some schools are going to start making some very big decisions.

For college football, the first major domino toward possibly not playing in the fall is expected to fall. The Ivy League had previous announced that it would decide if its 2020 season was going to be played by July 8. 

Let’s just say that there’s a reason why you’re suddenly hearing coaches and various college officials saying playing in the spring is doable.

Here are the latest figures on the coronavirus pandemic as of Sunday afternoon:
