BATON ROUGE (The Advertiser) — LSU may have a Plan B should there be no football season in 2020 because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
But that is not in coach Ed Orgeron’s game plan.
“There is no Plan B here at LSU, man,” he said with a laugh on FOX News Tuesday morning. “We’re going forward ahead.”
With the Big Ten Conference considering canceling the 2020 football season because of the COVID-19 pandemic and the Mountain West and Mid-American conferences canceling on Monday and Saturday, respectively, Orgeron appeared on FOX News to discuss what the Southeastern Conference and LSU may do.
FOX News host Sandra Smith, a former LSU track athlete, asked Orgeron, “Will you play?”
Orgeron did not answer absolutely.
“I do know this,” he said. “The SEC is competing for our players to play. I do believe that we have the best protocol for our players. Our players feel safe on campus. We only have a few players that are sick right now. They get the best care. Our players want to play. I do believe the SEC wants to play.”
