University chancellor Donde Plowman released a Twitter video Wednesday and told people the plan is to bring students back to campus as safely as possible during the coronavirus crisis. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

Well, add it to the list, folks. Tennessee is the latest major university with a big time college football team opening up in the fall.

At this rate, the SEC is leading the charge in the return of college football. It looks like the conference is going all in, and I completely support them.

With every major university that brings back students in the fall, we get one step closer to getting football back.

Tennessee might not have been great on the gridiron over the past several years, but they’re still an SEC program.

When a team like that is opening up during the pandemic, then it’s a great sign for the fate of America’s favorite sport.

While I will cheer against the SEC on the field, I support these schools planning on being open in the fall. Let’s hope more schools follow!
