Texas' Black football players helped bring real changes to their university on Monday, but their work isn't finished. What they've started here is a blueprint for effective student-athlete activism. Column: https://t.co/tyaFxPsTs1

State of the Program: Texas The Longhorns have had 2020 circled for quite a while. They have all the pieces they need to contend for a Big 12 title. If we get a season, can they put it all together? Deep dive on @TexasFootball: https://t.co/hMMoLN4Gvv

"Truthfully, I don't give a flying f--- if you quote me." Dahr Jamail, one of the sons of Joe Jamail, minced no words explaining why they asked the @TexasLonghorns to replace their dad's name at DKR w/Earl Campbell and Ricky Williams: https://t.co/T02SUIDkTP (via @Ivan_Maisel)

Thank you to the NCAA for granting me immediate eligibility and allowing me to play football this fall. I will not comment on the waiver or transfer, but look forward to a great 2020 season with my teammates.

J.T. Daniels, the quarterback transfer from USC, announces he's been granted a waiver to play immediately at Georgia. Daniels will be a redshirt sophomore at Georgia this season. (Whenever that is.) https://t.co/5se3a0YkYl

Our “State of the Program” series ⁦@TheAthleticCFB⁩ continues today with Oklahoma, a program that has been a national title contender for two decades without any national titles. Can 2020 be the year the #Sooners finally break through? https://t.co/XH3NUEnXwZ

STATE OF THE PROGRAM: Texas A&M

This season was supposed to be the one when we really found out how the Jimbo Fisher era would go in College Station.

It still might be, but that could depend on when and how it gets played. https://t.co/4piXhLWCku https://t.co/ihiM0GEI6y

Time is no longer on anyone’s side. The series of dominoes that have fallen so far leave the college sports system as a whole in a perilous position. As one Power 5 AD said, “It feels like we’re just postponing the inevitable.” COLUMN: https://t.co/f6LIlBQAUE

Sunday Read: The backstory of the classic “Loose Balls” is almost as wild as the book itself. The New York Times & Publishers Weekly reviews of it were brutal, trashing the style it was written in. Now, readers can’t get enough of the oral history style: https://t.co/iAvIFfZKq2

Junior college football is moving to a spring season. The NJCAA will announce its plan Monday. It’s another unique twist in this unprecedented recruiting cycle. On the impact of what’s happening at the JC level: https://t.co/sXBCUcIoVf

The SEC and its commissioner have reached a boiling point. Column off Greg Sankey's pointed comments today about the fate of the football season and what (who) got us here: https://t.co/X5VyZnnuS7

SOURCES: Announcement from the Pac-12 is expected for 4 PM PT to make this official.. In addition, this will include a delay of the start of mandatory activities. So that July 13 date is no longer in play.

Per @BruceFeldmanCFB and @NicoleAuerbach: Pac-12 is expected to announce today it plans to play conference-only 2020 football schedule. Story: https://t.co/CjOUOrHbHe
