|Erin Andrews is excited for
the season to start
By today most if not all of the college football fall preseason camps will be open and in business. Since rules do not allow full pads until after the first 3 practices, we most likely won't hear the the cracking of the pads in the distance for a few more days. But never the less, we are one more day closer
to the start of the 2008 college football season.
If you haven't already, head on over to College Football News
and check out what they have going on there. One of ITB's very own, Adam Nettina, has been blogging over there about Navy. Adam was lucky enough to attended Navy's media day last Thursday and got to sit down with their new coach Ken Niumatalolo
and talk about the upcoming season.
Another ITB writer, Eric, has been working hard over at Saturday Sound Offs doing his two-a-days for every team in the FBS and FCS, well maybe not ever FCS team, but all the important ones. His latest two are Rutgers and Delaware, head on over
and see what he predicts for those two teams.
All systems are go for
TCU, SMU, and North Texas to begin practice. College Football Top 10 has all the information you need for those teams and more. He has more information about Texas football on his blog than most people I know.
When our friend Big Head isn't fawning over Missouri Tigers on myspace, he's at Tigers' practice trying to Chase around the cheerleaders. Practice for the Tigers opens at 7:30 AM CST
, and Big Head is up early like a kid at Christmas time!

Another great part about preseason practice is how there is so much optimism for every team in the country. All of the teams start out undefeated, and they all have dreams of BCS titles dancing in their heads. Out in Lincoln, the big boss man Tom Osborne is no different. Over at Corn Nation, they found a quote from Osborne where he says they will be better
. Does better mean not giving up 70 points in a game, or does it mean making a bowl game? Head over to Corn Nation and vote!
If you thought your team made it through last season without getting made fun of by John Radcliff's College Football Songbook, check out the one he has this year. John is a good friend, good song writer, and burns one heck of a coach. I'm not sure we'll be friends too much longer if he keeps ripping on the Big Ten though. Check out his lastest College Football Songbook over at the AOL Fanhouse
In case you weren't aware, the LSU Tigers will be host to the Appalachian State Mountaineers, the first game of the season. It would be pretty surprising if the Tigers don't take this game seriously because of what ASU did to Michigan in the Big House last year. However, I do like the fact that this game will have the BCS Champion playing against the FCS Champion from last year. That should sell some tee-shirts. To read more about Appalachian State
