Football Media Day & Hot Weather
Eastern Illinois hosted its annual media day and kids clinic this afternoon under some pretty hot conditions. Now it probably was not as bad as Robin Williams weather forecast from 'Good Morning Vietnam' but to some of the young people participating it probably felt that way.
For video clips of Coach Spoo and Nate Galan from media day visit here.
Good turnout by the local media folks, look for coverage on a couple of the local stations and by Brian Nielsen in the www.jg-tc.com. By the way for those who have not heard, Nielsen was voted OVC Media Person of the Year - so congrats to Brian.
26 Days to the Iowa Game. Now that does not seem very far away so we did a quick Google Search for things you could get accomplished in 26 days. Other than a few other sites that mentioned it was 26 days until kick off the only reference we could find was Day 26 - a R&B group.
While attending the media day we did speak with EIU men's soccer coach Adam Howarth whose team will report Sunday night and play their first exhibition contest three days later. A quick google search on that revealed all sorts of weekend trips you can take so we will let you have your own experience on the internet for that.
