30 Questions to Kickoff coming soon

Alright everyone, with the calendar about to turn to August, it’s time to dust off the old blog feature that everyone seems to like, 30 Questions to Kickoff.

This year, Jimmy Durkin and I will answer 30 questions relating to the upcoming football season. And, as became our custom last year, we’d like to open things up to our readers. We’ll get started with our first question early next week, so you have basically until this weekend to post the questions you want answered. We’ll do our best to incorporate some of them, and sprinkle in a couple of our own as well.

So, if you’ve got a question about the upcoming football season, throw it out there. We’ll post our first question/answer early next week.
