NCAA Football: Big Ten Media Days Jim Young-USA TODAY Sports

Whoa boy, summer is over half way done. I was talking to a local parent the other day and they said that school here starts on August 13th. When I was growing up that was basically when two a days started for football.

I don’t miss two a days.
