Finally no more intra-squads. No more pre-season conference previews. No more rankings of any sort based on last year's finish and what players return. And FINALLY no more looking at that damn countdown to opening day clock that has been running for about 185 days. It is time to PLAY BALL!
Opening day is here and the SLU Lions are in Miami, FL taking on the Florida International Panthers. It is a match up of the Southland Conference vs the Sun Belt Conference, as two of the top mid-major programs swing it out in front of a live ESPN audience. Friday (6:00pm) and Saturday (noon) games can be seen on ESPN3.com, while Sunday's (6:30pm) game will be aired on ESPNU. If you can't watch the games be sure to follow ILB on Twitter or Facebook for game updates.
Oh and one other thing...watch for the "big heads" the Lion Nation will be sporting.
Go Green! Go Gold! GO LIONS!!!
