Football is 30 Days Away!

The season opener is now 30 days away as my Sacramento State Hornets travel into more unchartered territory as they go to the Smurf Turf and take on the vaunted Boise State Broncos on Aug. 31, in Boise. Unfortunately for me, since the game is on a Thursday (stupid Thursday games, college football is meant to be played on Saturday's only!), I will not be making the trip to the Treasure Valley.

However, I have been hearing from some low friends in high places that it might be televised on Comcast SportsNet. Either that, or I just tune in to listen to Jason and Steve on 1380. Those guys are two of the best in the business and its my honor to work with them in my side job in Hornet Athletics.

I will have more about the upcoming football season, as well as volleyball, our Nine-Time Defending Big Sky Champion Hornet Volleyball team!

Go Hornets!!!! Can't believe its already August!

What? No great trip to Boise (which I am ridiculed by all my Idaho friends for pronouncing with a Texas accent which is decidedly one syllable too many) to see that lovely grass on the field? I'm anxiously awaiting my Texas Tech Red Raiders myself... nothing like a bucket of cold Shiner Bock on a hot Saturday during football season!

I actually was in Lubbock last year right as training camp was getting underway. I stopped by to watch which new qb Leach was trying to break in.

Since I work in the athletic dept. part time, I drink after the game (especially if we got killed! I mean we went 2-9 last year!)We usually go to a place called Hoppy Brewing Company which is just around the corner from campus.

By the way, the Goin Band, one of the best in the business. But my heart still lies with my "Spirit of Sacramento" State Marching Band!

LSU has not been the same since Saban left. Of course you know it was a split national championship that year. Rachel, you are going to have to take me to a game at Death Valley. I want to do the all-day tailgate with all the cajun food.
