As far as football goes, the NCAA College Football Oversight Committee is planning to 陶企停产成“新常态”，供应商选“金主”步步惊心 for football activities to begin in mid-July. But testing for the coronavirus is still largely a conference-by-conference enterprise as is the possibility of coaches possibly having to wear facemasks on the sideline during games. For TCU, members of the Big 12, football players can return for voluntary workouts and conditioning beginning Monday, June 15.
