Kicking Off the Kickoffs

Big South football teams begin their gridiron clashes in just over a month, but before they take the field, they take the microphone...at Media Day.

The time-honored ritual varies a little by conference and sport, but the heart of Media Day remains the same: it's an opportunity to formally roll out the beginning of the season and preview the wide-open possibilities ahead by hearing from coaches and players. Every team has a perfect season intact, every team has a plan, every team has hope.

You can listen in on what's being said by the football coaches of the Big South Conference at Media Day! Once again, the Big South will be streaming interviews from the Charlotte, NC, event on The Big South Edge. The first coach should be on the clock in the streaming interview room at about 1:45pm ET this Friday, July 25th.

Best of all, the streamed interview content is absolutely FREE! Everyone's welcome to watch and listen live, but the program will also be recorded and available for free in The Edge On Demand, so you can check it out any time you like.

Remember that Big South Football is currently a seven-team arrangement:
Charleston Southern Buccaneers,
Coastal Carolina Chanticleers,
Gardner-Webb Runnin' Bulldogs,
Liberty Flames,
Presbyterian Blue Hose (not eligible in 2008), Stony Brook Seawolves (Associate Member),
and VMI Keydets.

And, as if all the football excitement is not enough (which it should be), this week also marks the launch of the Big South Conference 25th Anniversary Season celebration...so be ready to figure out "The Best of the Best" with us. That's all I can tell you until Friday or I'll be hauled off to an undisclosed location to protect Conference secrets!

Expect another SHOUT when we get to the frenzy at the end of the week...including the predicted order of finish from the preseason football poll, the All-Conference team, the Anniversary details, and even more good stuff...thanks for reading--and get ready for another tremendous year in the Big South.
