Football season plans are in the making among Texas Longhorns officials.

That means many students are expected to return to campus in August.

Then there’s football – and our anxiety about the football season during a pandemic.

“The university is developing policies and procedures for hosting football games and other athletics events this fall pursuant to state, local and Big 12 Conference health and safety guidelines,” interim university president Jay Hartzell said on a Monday statement. “UT expects to narrow the scenarios under consideration by the first week of August.”

Hartzell continued, “We are also implementing policies and procedures to return essential coaches, athletics staff and all student-athletes to campus in the fall for practice/competition pursuant to guidance by the CDC, state and local officials and athletics and campus medical staff.”

That means efforts are in motion. But will it be enough to enjoy the college football season?

That part, folks, remains to be seen. But we’ll see it soon enough, indeed.

  • Jim Garnham has joined the Longhorns as an assistant track and field coach, the Austin American-Statesman reports. From the Statesman: “Garnham will coach the vertical jumps and combined events at Texas. He replaces Matthew McGee, who was not retained after two years in Austin. Garnham spent the past two years at Purdue. In addition to a decade-long stint at Notre Dame, Garnham has also coached at Tulsa and Buffalo. Graham coached 16 All-Americans at Purdue and Notre Dame. He was named the 2019 USTFCCCA Great Lakes Region Men’s Assistant Coach of the Year.”
