I thought I'd toss this out as a suggestion, I think it'd be kinda fun.
How about having a "Countdown to Kickoff" counter on the main page? Or perhaps it appears just below the bar area where it says "Logged in as: soandso" or something. Would keep people pumped about the coming season, in my opinion.
