As you might guess, the PSAC blog consumes a lot of my free time so this didnít get as much attention as I would have liked. I encourage you to add your own thoughts in the comments below to spur some conversation about the week 1 schedule.
Before we look at the rundown, I want to reiterate something that I wrote in my
The end of summer is always a little difficult to face. In just a few short weeks, the leaves will be falling, the plants will be wilting, the days will be shortening, the temperatures will be dropping, and the sundresses and will be shuffled to the back of the closet until next spring L But who cares about any of thatÖFootball is back!
