An exhale has cometh from the Big East. The whirlwind known as 2009 Clam Bake Days is over, along with it came the commitment of Fab Melo [see Fizz 8.4.09].
What specifically do Media Days mean to the fan?
If you’ve paid attention to any of the recent college football media sessions (Pac-10 did up L.A., SEC went to Birgmingham), there are some important things to learn.
We have discovered that (in order of priority):
1) Tim Tebow is in fact a virgin.
2) Steve Spurrier didn’t not vote for Tim Tebow, his assistant forgot to.
3) It’s an “exciting” time of the year
Every team, from top to bottom, is looking to have a “strong” year.
The coaches are “pleased” with what has gone on in spring practice.
They are “optimistic” that certain guys will be leaders in summer practice.
It’s almost as if head coaches all get together the night before and generate a big list of buzz words to use so they can laugh the next day when every reporter writes more or less the same article.
What can we actually take away from this though? Well, we know SU got picked to finish last in the conferece media poll… again.
2. West Virginia
When you finish last four years in a row in the standings, it’s only fitting.
And with all the cliches that were tossed around, it also only makes sense that Doug Marrone will now use the poll results as “bulletin board material.”
