No one is quite sure when LSU football will be able to return to football activities.

One of the biggest questions on everyone’s mind is when will LSU football, along with the rest of the college football world, be allowed to return to campus.

For now, no one has any idea when athletes will be allowed to return to campus, much less when they’ll be allowed to resume football activities.

But eventually, athletes will hit the field again. Practice will resume and games will be played.

When that happens, programs will need some time to get players “football ready”. Jumping right into practice wouldn’t be safe for athletes. Injuries would almost certainly follow.

So how long would LSU need to get ready for practice?

According to strength coach Tommy Moffitt, it would take about a month to get players ready to go again for practice.

Moffitt recently spoke on LSU Sixty and said that it’s his responsibility to make sure players are in shape before training camp starts.

If that process takes a month, it would mean the latest players could arrive back on campus and still start the season on time is the first week of July. That would give Moffitt a month with the players, and then a month of training camp. LSU is scheduled to kick off the 2020 season on September 5 against UTSA.

Despite what you’ve probably seen floating around social media, it’s way too early to speculate on what the 2020 season will look like. That’s still over four months away and we have no idea what the landscape of sports will be at that point.

Moffitt, by the way, suggested that LSU is hopeful that players will return to campus in June at some point. It’s unclear if he has any inside information on that date, or if he’s just hopeful for a June return.
