Add another voice to the debate on whether college football can or should be played in the fall, as ABC 33/40 anchor Jamie Hale managed to get an exclusive with the man known as the nation’s “testing czar, ” pediatrician and four-star Admiral Brett P. Giroir, MD. Hale also includes snippets of Mac Jones and Najee Harris from Friday’s Zoom conference with reporters, and even a little Alabama football footage.
The interview touches on a few bullets:
- Why players are safer in the football environment
- Protocols required to play
- Whether there can be fans in the crowd
- Whether he would personally be willing to attend a game
It’s a solid interview, and in the end Admiral Giroir is bullish about the idea of football happening this fall. See below for both halves of the two-part conversation.

As we love to say around here, hope for the best.
