With the 2020 NFL season five weeks away, so returns an August tradition: Hard Knocks. Terez Paylor and Charles Robinson open today's podcast recapping Anthony Lynn, Sean McVay, Jalen Ramsey and the season premiere of HBO's docuseries covering the Los Angeles Rams and Chargers.

While not every NFL fan watches college football, today's monumental news from the Big Ten and Pac-12 absolutely has an impact on football seasons to come. With the two conferences (and potentially more) deciding to cancel their fall seasons and potentially play their 2020 seasons in the spring of 2021, Terez and Charles look at what this means for the NFL. How will scouting departments adjust to limited tape on the incoming class? Could the 2021 NFL Draft be delayed? (16:25)

Last Thursday was the NFL's deadline for players to opt out of the 2020 season. Our experts take a look at the rosters most impacted by the opt-outs and how offensive line depth has been decimated this year. (38:00)

Finally, the guys open up the listener mailbag and answer a question about Joe Burrow and the Bengals (52:00) before issuing a surprising verdict in the grilled cheese and grape jelly quandary. (57:40)
