After a weekend of celebrating the commitment of LJ Scott and mourning the departure of Ezra Robinson, another Monday is almost in the books. And that means we're another day closer to football season, which really isn't that far off anymore. The opener against Jacksonville State is about a month and a half away, but the talk and hype surrounding that game in Eugene in Week 2 is already picking up. Can't imagine the excitement about 50 days from now.
