LSU football is hoping to return to the field as soon as possible.

One of the biggest questions that fans have right now is when will LSU football, along with the rest of the college football world, return to the field?

Spring practice was canceled in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic, and students were sent home from campus with no expected return date.

For now, no one is certain when athletes will be allowed to return to campus, which means it’s hard to predict if college football will have a normal season.

If the season is going to start on time, it will mean that the first of July is the latest players could return to campus and be ready for the start of the season. That would give players a month to hit the weight room on campus and get back in shape, and then a month of fall camp in August, before the season starts in September.

Now for the good news. Tigers head coach Ed Orgeron told reporters on Tuesday that he thinks LSU will have camp in August.

If that happens, then it means there’s a really good chance the college football season starts on time. Now, does that mean the season will be “normal”?

There’s no way to know that right now. It might mean that games are played without fans. Or there could be a delayed start to the season, in order to allow fans to attend games. There are numerous scenarios that could be in play.

Next. Coach O hands Joe Burrow another huge compliment. dark

But it’s at least encouraging to know that Coach O, who has likely had some closed doors conversations with SEC officials/school officials, thinks fall camp will happen as scheduled.
