    Signs that you need football season to start

    A few days ago I was so starved for football that I stooped to the level of watching an arena league game on NFL network. It was like using Sweet-N-Low instead of sugar...not bad at first, but in the end it leaves a funny taste in your mouth and it's just not the same. I also just spent a good hour watching a replay of an old high school football game on ESPNU that I had absolutely no interest in...but was somehow entertained to watch an actual game of football.

    Anyone else having signs of football withdrawal problems? Please come soon September 2nd...I need football to start NOW!

    It was the NIU game from 2 years ago. As BCoffClone125 suspected I'm really in need of some college football.

    Not only did I watch a good chunk of the International Bowl, but I paid close attention to the NIU players to know what to expect. I analyzed their lines and returning players. (Scouting with no purpose or vested interest)

    That's how you know football needs to get here! Sept. 2nd can't come soon enough!

    I have been watching Big Ten network replays for 2 weeks straight...... In all honesty I do like watching Wisconsin, but otherwise loath the Big 10.

    I watched three CFL games this weekend, while in Canada. I've been check out some replays on BTN and CBS College.


    "I'm proud to lead this program and this team in whatever we do. Whether it's a community service project, or through practice or winning a bowl game, but you don't do that without the kids believing and being all in, and going out there and accomplishing all [of] the goals and expectations that we set." - Coach Paul Rhoads

    It really doesn't hit me until school starts. That's about the time I become desperate. Luckily I only have a week and a half of school without football.

    Re: Signs that you need football season to start

    I've been to several Barnstormers games over the summer and it seems to have filled a little bit of the football gap, but it's not the same as ISU football or high school football. Less than a month to go...

    Re: Signs that you need football season to start

    I'm getting tired of watching MLB everyday. Especially since the Cubs suck.

    I've had no reason to drink beer before 5pm on Saturdays, or make my favorite tailgating food.

    Saturdays shouldn't be spent sitting on a bench in the mall waiting for my fiance to come out of a store.

    I miss losing credits and money betting on games.
