Counting down the days ’til MACtion

College football is still so far away. But it’s also closer than we all realize. The college football news cycle isn’t as fruitful right now with the sports calendar still on the early goings of baseball season, but there’s still the desire to have football in our lives.

Each day, I’ll help out count down the days until kickoff. For the Mid-American Conference specifically, Ball State has the honors of being the first to play against Central Connecticut State from the Football Championship Subdivision ranks on August 30. As of this publishing, that’s 101 days away.

Starting tomorrow, when there are only 100 days until the Cardinals take the field for our first taste of MACtion since December, I’ll be counting down the days with a new post to keep everybody entertained. Each number of days until football will have some sort of significance, whether it’s reflective of a statistic, somebody’s uniform number, a record — whatever.

Missed a day? Just come back here, where I’ll log all of the articles posted from now through August 29. By then, we’ll all be plenty entertained by a long-winded series of posts to preview the season, look back at years past and dive into some other little nuggets that’ll be stumbled upon throughout the process.

And then there’ll be football, finally.
