The Virginia Gazette says William & Mary has depth on the offensive line. The opening game against the Tribe will feature one of the best offensive line and tailback combinations in the nation.

Pretty solid at both safety slots. Any ideas about the CBs?

With camp essentially over and all the focus now on WIlliam & Mary the majority of the two deep should be set. Has anyone been by the stadium two see what things look like on Offense and Defense?

A post I just read was the single dumbest thing anyone has said on the blog. OF COURSE it makes a difference if you go up or down in division. Newsflash Division 2 and 3 schools do not give athletic scholarships! Its strictly financial aid, if they drop down its non scholarship football. A scholarship at Umass is worth say 100k per kid more for an out of state kid. Who do you think is paying for that? Moving up a division would get the school the conference share on TV contracts, more merchandise sales, bigger crowds at games and possible bowl money amongst other things. Its a move these FCS schools might face in the future.
