Iowa could have a full football stadium in the fall.

According to Scott Dochterman, athletic director Gary Barta hasn’t ruled out having a full stadium during games in the fall and said it’s “still one of the modes we’re planning for.” (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

However, if capacity at Kinnick Stadium must be reduced during the coronavirus pandemic, season-ticket holders, people on the points system and students would take precedence.

Well, this is a very interesting development. Obviously, you have to plan for everything, but I like the fact that Barta is already suggesting they might pack the stands.

Obviously, everything we do must be done in the safest manner possible. We don’t want to take any unnecessary risks, but we also don’t know what September will look like.

There’s a chance things are good enough in a few months that we can pack Kinnick and other stadiums. That’s the dream.

We’re all hoping for that outcome to say the least. We want to be back in the stands for football games. Even though I hate Iowa, I would applaud the hell out of this move!

We obviously won’t know more about what football stadiums will look like in the fall for a few months, but I appreciate the fact Iowa is at least planning on having fans.
