'tis the season that drives coaches crazy, keeps law enforcement busy and jeopardizes the careers of promising young athletes. It's the Silly Season--observed annually from approximately the end of spring drills until the opening of fall camps in August.

Traditionally the slowest news days of the cycle in college football, these are times when almost any incident is pounced upon and blasted coast to coast. Don't blame Twitter, message boards, the media or bloggers. It's junk food for a starving nation of fans.
