Questions remain after SEC schedule release

The Governor’s Cup has been grounded.

Thursday’s decision by the Southeastern Conference to play a league-only football schedule this fall means Kentucky won’t face Louisville and won’t have to take the governor’s trophy from its case for at least another year.

In time, interrupting the commonwealth’s gridiron grudgefest may seem an awful shame. At the moment, though, it’s hard to get overly concerned about an annual rivalry being interrupted by a global pandemic.

“Everyone would like to play a full schedule, including our rivalry game with Louisville,” UK coach Mark Stoops said Thursday, “but this timing and format gives us our best opportunity to adjust to these unique circumstances.”

It is, to be sure, an opportunity and not an assurance.

The SEC plans to play 10 conference games in a season that won’t start until Sept. 26. The Atlantic Coast Conference has adopted an 11-game schedule, one of them a non-conference tilt.
