Georgia football podcast: Steve Spurrier strikes a hopeful tone about college football’s eventual return

Beginning of the show: No one knows when sports will return in America. But when things do begin to return to normal, there will be questions about how quickly college football teams can prepare for the upcoming season. Former Florida and South Carolina coach Steve Spurrier appeared this week on the Paul Finebaum Show and explained that teams might not need a long preseason to get ready play games. That is seemingly good news given the appetite that will exist for on-field competition after the nation’s long athletic hiatus. I’ll discuss more on that topic on today’s show.
