It's the second week of July ... only 9 Saturdays until the return of Boston College football. Each year around this time of year is when I officially allow myself to start getting excited for the upcoming football season. We can start in on prognosticating over the season, embark on various preseason previews, and play the next version of EA Sports NCAA Football.
So we were especially excited when EA Sports asked to sponsor a week's worth of posts leading up to the release of NCAA Football 2011 next Tuesday, July 13th. They weren't interested in telling us what to say, only in sponsoring a series of posts celebrating the diehard fans of college football.
So what's on tap? We'll be posting once a day between now and the release of the game next Tuesday, starting in a hour or so with the first of the series: How I Came To Be An Eagles Diehard. From there, the series will unfold as follows:
Tuesday: All-Time Favorite Boston College Team
Wednesday: Boston College Tailgating Traditions (Or Lack Thereof)
Thursday: All-Time Favorite Boston College Players
Friday: Most Memorable Boston College Moments: Which Moments Define Our Fandom
Monday: Expectations for the 2010 Season: Why We're Excited
Tuesday: NCAA Football 2011 Debuts: It's Christmas in July!
We invite you to jump in the comment section of each post. We look forward to hearing all your own stories and traditions related to the maroon and gold.
