The University of Iowa intends on football players starting practice by June.

According to Vanessa Miller, university president Bruce Harreld said Wednesday that the plan is for athletes to start practicing again June 1, including football players. Football across America has been halted during the coronavirus pandemic. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

This is music to my ears. I know June might seem like a lifetime away, but it’s really not. It’s a month away, and it’s a great target date

Iowa is also one of the biggest football programs in America. Once one team like that begins practicing, conference rivals and foes won’t have a choice but to do the same.

As pointed out by Ross Dellenger, Iowa’s starting date appears to be the earliest, but lots of coaches want to be rolling by July.

I really hope Iowa’s hopes of a June 1 start turn out to be correct. I really do. It’s a sign that football is going to happen.

America desperately needs a win right now, and we need football back in our lives. While I might hate Iowa, I respect the fact they’re ready to win this war and get back to work.
