Schools around the SEC (and the country in general) are announcing plans to reopen this fall, barring a major change.

Mississippi State has yet to announce fall plans, but there is optimism building in Starkville, according to AD John Cohen.

Cohen said recently that MSU president Dr. Mark Keenum isn’t a guy who makes rash decisions, but added that there are hopes to have students on campus this fall (via 247Sports):

“I have the benefit of working for someone who is very strategic,” said Cohen of Mississippi State President Dr. Mark Keenum. “Dr. Keenum will not make any statements until we are fully prepared for that. I think we are all optimistic about it and we are planning to have students on campus for the fall. But we also have contingency plans in case that doesn’t happen.”

Nothing is set in stone at the moment, but there is building hope that football and other sports will be able to be played this fall.
