Did you survive the first weekend without any college or professional football?
- Missing out on Stefon Diggs leaves a hole in Ohio State's otherwise stellar recruiting class.
- Penn State signee Jamil Pollard had to endure the slaying of two of his sisters. Michael Mauti expects to be 100 percent healthy by the spring.
- Someone wrote a love song to Denard Robinson. No, really. Former Wolverine Warde Manuel is the new athletic director at UConn.
- Minnesota doesn't need anyone with local ties as its next AD if it wants a successful Big Ten leader, Jim Souhan writes.
- Lavonte David is gone, so opportunity abounds for some young Nebraska linebackers.
- Some notes on Iowa's recruiting class. The Hawkeyes shouldn't change much despite the departure of Ken O'Keefe.
