I just read an article that they are starting classes on Aug 11 on campus which is 2 weeks early. Not taking a fall break and ending the semester before Thanksgiving. It should be no secret that they are doing this so they can play football. I can see the team reporting the first of August which would give them 4 weeks of practice before the first game. Most of the so called experts are saying teams need 4-6 weeks to prepare for the first game. I can see others following this timeline,I guess we will find out soon,we are closing in on June.
