Josh Pate of 247Sports has a very strong belief that there is no offseason in college football. And, generally speaking, we agree with him here at Cougar Sports Insider. College football, perhaps more than any other sport, doesn’t have an offseason. When the games aren’t being played, there is recruiting to follow, spring football practices, conference realignment bonanza and a seemingly endless amount of banter between all the fans of the sport. It is what makes this sport the greatest sport on the planet.

Pate might be right that there is no offseason, but make no mistake about it, there is definitely an ON-season in college football. Ladies and gentlemen, the ON season is officially upon us.

As the calendar finally turns to August, schools across the country will begin their fall camps this week. We’re still a month away from games, but college football is back. We will have real, tangible, and current football news in just a matter of days.

BYU is no exception to this. Camp Kalani will begin in Provo later this week. The Cougars are poised for their final season as a college football independent. Kalani Sitake and his squad looks like they are positioned well to be one of the best teams in the country this year. Quarterback Jaren Hall will lead what looks to be a prolific offense this year. On defense, the return of last year’s injured players is arguably the biggest story on that side of the ball. Keenan PiliPayton Wilgar Chaz Ah You and Lorenzo Fauatea are all part of the foundation that makes this defense successful, and all of them are back on the field this week for the Cougars.

But, before we see any of these players in game action, we have to get through the next month of practices. In order for these next few weeks to be successful, there are several things that need to happen. Today, we take a look at what those things are.
