College football is on the brink of being canceled, but some Tennessee football players still want to play the 2020 season, and the SEC should let them.

There has been speculation and rumors surrounding college football and certain Power 5 conferences, that the season could be canceled. When it comes to Tennessee football and the SEC, the fight to save the season is just getting started.

This past week, Tennessee has gained its own momentum in keeping its season alive as multiple colleges around the country try to do the same.

Tennessee Chancellor Donde Plowman said she couldn’t wait to see the Vols play in Neyland Stadium this fall in a Twitter post on Monday. With the support of the administration, it looks like Tennessee is prepared to have a college football season.

Some Tennessee players have joined the #WeWantToPlay movement started by some of the top athletes in college football. The likes of Jarrett Guarantano, Brian Maurer, Alontae Taylor, Velus Jones Jr., and Trevon Flowers have all voiced their support by tweeting the hashtag.

It seems to me, the vast majority of college football players want to play, the coaches want to coach, and the fans want to be in the stadium cheering on their team.

I don’t know if we’ll get to see fans in college football stadiums, at least at full capacity, but letting the players play and the coaches coach is achievable.

Former Tennessee quarterback Keller Chryst also took to Twitter to share his opinion on the matter, and he’s all for having a college football season, and his reasoning should be the reasoning for every college athlete that wants to play this fall and in the spring.

Kevin Byard continues to prove he’s one of the best safeties in the league. dark. Next

For Chryst, and many other college athletes, the answer seems pretty simple. College football athletes are starting to gain some momentum as President Trump also throws his support behind him. Will it be enough to save the college football season?
