I mean August 24? It's gonna feel like a preseason game. I'm not remotely in football mode yet

And I follow college football real closely during the year. Like all the way down to checking FCS scores each week. But when it's not football season I go on to other things

European soccer starting is exciting and the FedEx cup playoffs is on which is great but I cannot wait for college football so the sooner the better imo. What sports season are you in right now that makes u want football not to start?


Tennis, the euro soccer leagues just started

What is considered tennis season? That is understandable if you have a job in a sports field that is running into football tho. I do not so I'm am ready for the weekends with some college football on. Just may have to go golf earlier in the day.


tennis season is pretty much year round

With pro events going on in every month of the year except December. But there are lulls and hot points. The May-September is the busiest time in the pros with the French open, Wimbledon, US open all falling in that time frame. Also masters events (the second highest level of event) like Montreal and Cincinnati happening.

The Australian open is the outlier by taking place in January.

I think I heard that the QB (Williams) for Miami is supposed to be very good, and he beat out the dork that transferred from OSU. If I heard correctly, Williams competed against Trevor Lawrence in some state championship games, and was supposedly was the 2nd best QB in GA behind TL16. If so, Miami might actually have a decent team this year. I'll watch that game with UF.

The problem there is it's Week 1 under a new regime. Miami may rebound under Manny Diaz but I doubt it's Week 1 and probably not fully this year. They could also swing and miss under Diaz too. They definitely rolled the dice on him.

Dan Mullen, on the other hand, might be the most underrated coach in college football. He quietly rebuilt Florida throughout last season - they improved pretty much every week - and he's pretty much the polar opposite of Kirby Smart...Mullen is a guy who has an impressive track record of success who has never, ever been the Flavor of the Month. He competed in the SEC West with Mississippi State - Mississippi State! - and now that he actually is coaching at a place that has superpower potential my suspicion is he'll shove UGA out of the way sooner rather than later.

Florida probably wins this one going away.

Little tasting schedule before the real season ramps up. And it makes sense for the schools in that they get an extra bye week out of it and more eyes on them for recruiting.


High School football in NC starts August 23rd***

There should be a few games this weekend to build up to the Miami/Florida game. Definitely not too early though.

I'm not a fan of any team opening with a "big" game - 8/24

is really pushing the envelope for ANY first game. That's not enough practice time...
