The first football practices are just under a month away. The season is just under two months away. We’re far from anything real as of this writing (July 21).
But seeing how most of our comments this summer are all about football, let’s talk football.
So, in order to begin to talk about football, let’s start a new thread. Simply, the 2015 class division post — which has become the go-to post for preseason football talk — has become a bit unwieldy. By all means, continue to write your thoughts there, but let’s try to get discussions going here.
To kick us off, here are a few offseason football stories to chew on:
The 2015 Schedules: Maps and links to CIAC’s league and team schedules are here
The 2015 Divisions: Here’s who’ll be playing for which titles.
Here’s a video of linemen playing tug-o-war at the Berlin Lineman Challenge
Here’s some stuff the Fairfield County Media conglomerate got from the ‘Grip It and Rip It’ passing tournament: A Stamford Advocate thing on the tournament itself, with emphasis on the FCIAC programs. A Connecticut Post thing which includes the non-FCIAC teams. A Hersam-Acorn thing on the tournament itself.
With the exception of the 2015 items, none of this is too illuminating.
But you, dear commenters, are quite tenacious in your desire to talk football. So let’s talk foot ball here. Let’s make this thread where it’s at until the actual preseason begins.
I’ll be here to answer any questions, comments or suggestions you might have. I can’t promise anything substantial as far as answering questions, though. I’m still trying to enjoy the summer.
