    I don't mind there being no major news this week. Anything that would make headlines now would more than likely not be positive.

    Re: Week prior to kickoff....

    I'd say its for 2 reasons. First, every major (and minor) storyline has already been beat to death. Second, the teams now switch from general practice to preparing for their first opponent, so they are less open with information from practices than they were before, meaning less new stories.
