With the cancel culture mob moving to prevent college football from being played this year time is short to salvage what remains of one of America's enduring fall traditions.
President Trump has expressed his support for saving college football and by doing so, has earned high praise from many including LSU Tigers head coach Ed Orgeron who is affectionately known as "Coach O" and who is proven winner.
Orgeron who led the Tigers to a phenomenal 15-0 championship season in which records were smashed and the Bayou Bengals were finally able to conquer Nick Saban's Alabama juggernaut loves Trump and isn't afraid to say so.
During an interview with Fox News "Coach O" dropped a hammer on the heads of the campus commies and their media allies who have already forced the Big Ten, Pac 10 and Mountain West conferences to terminate their seasons before the opening kickoff.
According to Coach O:
"I love President Trump. He treated us very well when we went to the White House and I think he's doing a fantastic job."
Orgeron was referring to the celebration of the Tigers' momentous achievement and their visit to the White House for the traditional ceremony that many others have shunned in the age of the Trump Derangement Syndrome epidemic.
Unlike the other conferences whose teams largely in states that are controlled by the new flock of authoritarian Democrat governors, the LSU Tigers are in the Southeastern Conference and the SEC is currently planning on playing football this year.
On Wednesday, President Trump said that he had spoken with Coach O as well as star Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence about saving the college football season.
Via The Baton Rouge Advocate, "'Let 'em play': Trump says he spoke with LSU's Ed Orgeron about playing football in the fall":
President Donald Trump said during a White House news briefing Wednesday afternoon that LSU coach Ed Orgeron spoke to him on the phone about playing college football this fall.
Trump did not say when the call occurred or the details within it, but the conversation focused on a mutual interest in continuing to play while college football's conferences weigh postponing fall sports because of concerns with the coronavirus pandemic.
The Big Ten and Pac-12 became the first Power 5 conferences to postpone football on Tuesday, a decision that was made even after large groups of coaches and players joined a national outcry under the "We Want To Play" Movement.
Those voices managed only to slow the momentum for a day within those conferences — but the outcry included people within the Atlantic Coast, Big 12 and Southeastern Conference and may have had some influence on their decisions to move forward as scheduled.
In a furious attempt to beat back the tide, a group of NCAA football players led by Trevor Lawrence launched the #WeWantToPlay campaign which was re-tweeted by President Trump.
The SEC and ACC where Lawrence plays continue to resist the pressure as does the Big 12 which just released its revised 2020 schedule but the enemies of America will not quit and are feeling emboldened after forcing the Big Ten to bend the knee.
The ripple effects would be devastating to college sports with football programs making up the vast majority of revenue that allows universities to field teams in lesser sports but that could all be gone if the cancel culture warriors get their way.
