It feels like it has taken three years to get here, but fall camp is now just one day away. Beginning tomorrow, WSU will take to Rogers Field to open preparations for the 2012 season.
There will be position battles and breakout players, but most importantly there will be football. Spring football was a nice teaser, but now we are just 25(ish) practices away from the start of the season.
With the start of fall camp, there is plenty to cover. WSU will be releasing the fall camp practice schedule today so we'll have that later for any of you who would like to take in a practice or two. Mike Leach will also be conducting a conference call with the media this afternoon and the chances he says something interesting are fairly high, so we'll have that as well.
Football, or at least something that resembles football is almost here you guys.
