Like the blog's clock, college football is set to its own timetable. And so while this is Aug. 1 — the 41st day of summer — in football time, this is the start of fall camp.
The Rainbow Warrior newcomers reported yesterday, and most of the 104 players on the training-camp roster are expected to check in today. (The Warriors are holding a couple of roster spots for players needing official acceptance into UH.)
There will be orientation sessions and team meetings through the day.
The first practice is at 10 a.m. tomorrow.
