February was a crummy month; I remember it well. I turned on the television only to be greeted with some sort of basketball (no insult to you, basketball, but you’re not football), and the college football season felt light years away.
We trudged through the dark days of February, tore off those other months in our “Best of Brent Musburger” office calendars, and now we’ve almost made it. That’s not light at the end of the tunnel you're seeing; it's the faint sound of Big & Rich and a beer being cracked at hours that will make most normal humans squirm.
Camps are opening, and the season is now just 30 days away. That's it.
I’d say the countdown has officially begun, but you started that countdown once the clock struck zero in the offensively-challenged closing act. Condensing down the storylines to follow in the next 30 days and beyond is a nearly impossible task, but there are some very distinct items to look for.
Here they are.
