iPhone : Source: Redskins to officially announce they're changing the name on Monday... New name revealed at a later time.. espn.com/nfl/story/_/id…

iPhone : There is no chance jucos can approach the costs of the safety protocols necessary to play this fall. This is a common-sense approach. twitter.com/espncfb/status…

iPhone : Pac-12 says it will announce schedules no later than July 31. Timing of start of fball season will be interesting. While Big Ten intent on starting early September, Pac-12 might have to start a little later.

iPhone : Source: The Pac-12 will announce it will go conference only in football this fall, following the Big Ten’s announcement of a league-only schedule Thursday. The Athletic first reported.

iPhone : Justin Rowland Agree on both. But I’ve never understood why SEC fans don’t complain more about the schedule. Most of them won’t see their team win a national title. Wouldn’t they like to face league opponents more? Don’t they get tired of crappy non-con games?

TweetDeck : MNFANLIVNNND Matt Hayes The 6+1+1 format allows for only one rotating game in the opposite division. While it protests some good cross-division games like LSU-Florida and Auburn-Georgia, there's almost no true rotation. With only 8 total games, certain pairings go more than a decade without taking place

iPhone : "I'm really concerned," said Gene Smith when asked about his optimism that football will happen in the fall. "When you look at the behavior of our country and in may we were on a downward trajectory ... Now, if we are not the worst in the world, one of the worst in the world."

iPhone : Another area to watch is whether the Big Ten (and other leagues that go this route) takes over all testing and return to play protocols during the season. I’ve heard there’s a strong internal push to do so.

iPhone : Also hearing per sources thst the B1G’s league-only schedules will be frontloaded with division games, as those are the most important to play before potential interruptions. twitter.com/espnrittenberg…
