When will FBS teams be allowed to resume full activities? Well, one Big Ten University President says his guys are going back June 1.

Fall Football: Yesterday we imagined a near future where one school or conference is ready to play this fall and another is not. Today, SEC commissioner Greg Sankey acknowledged that could happen.

NFL: If college football can't play as scheduled, the NFL is reportedly prepared to capitalize.

Media Days: The MAC has joined the Mountain West in announcing its media days will be held online this year. Expect every conference to follow suit.

NCAA: The NCAA's Division I Board of Directors recommended pausing a waiver that would let football players transfer and play immediately. What does that mean?

Penn State: James Franklin and Penn State got an important victory on Wednesday. More here.

LA Chargers: Pep Hamilton, who most recently served as the head coach / general manager of the DC Defenders (XFL) is reportedly joining the staff. More here.

Playing in the fall: We did our best to boil down a complicated issue: What if Alabama, Georgia and LSU are ready to play this fall and Vanderbilt isn’t?

Defending 20/11 Y-Off Runs Personnel with Multiple Fronts: With the use of a FB/TE in off-the-ball alignments, offenses can align in 11, 20, and sometimes even 10 personnel without any additional subs. Which is why it’s important for defenses to do the same, aligning in both Even and Odd fronts with the same personnel. At Ohio prep powerhouse Massillon High School, co-defensive coordinator Spencer Leno will utilize both Even and Okie fronts to fit the Y-Off run game. In an exclusive clinic report with X&O Labs, Coach Leno reviews the fit responsibilities for each defender in both fronts; a method that has helped produced a 14-1 record this season, giving up an average of 11.6 points per game. Read the report.

Name, Image, Likeness: The NCAA announced a landmark decision yesterday paving the way for athletes to profit off their name, image, and likeness…including NO limit on earnings (provided certain guidelines are met).
