The Big Blue Daily Mail -- Trudging Toward Football Season

It's about this time every year that the summer seems interminable.  Football season is over a month away, basketball season is even further, and news runs down to a trickle.  But finally, the Josh Selby thing is settling down, SEC Media Days have come and gone... 

Speaking of Media Days, I did a brief interview with Cocknfire of Team Speed Kills and Joel of Rocky Top Talk which you can find here.  I am on in the last 15 minutes or so of the program.  It will give you something to kill some time if you're bored.  I always forget to post these darn things for some reason.

Anyway, to the news:

    The biggest opposition to this suggestion have come from mid-major coaches who are able to see a lot of kids and do a lot of evaluating at these events, and get a lot of bang for their comparatively limited travel-budget dollar.
