It’s hard to know what to say about this episode. I’m sure some will be upset that we’re giving this much airtime to uncomfortable subjects instead of sticking to sports. But we can’t be silent, and we can’t not have these conversations. COVID-19 is getting worse in our state. Will it threaten college football? We’re talking about it. And we’re also talking about the other major issue gripping our country. And just so we’re clear:
Black. Lives. Matter.
Full stop. For those that would tell us to stick to sports, my response is the same as it is in the podcast: listen. Listen to the stories of the oppressed. This is important, and we have an opportunity to move forward with real change. Listen and act. And let yourself get uncomfortable in it. It’s how we grow, it’s how we learn. Engage with each other, and care.
We love you all. You matter.
And we hope you listen and enjoy.
