The University at Albany football teams hits the practice field on Friday August 6th in preparation for a new season and a very challenging schedule that lies ahead. The Great Danes have all the makings of a very good squad, but no easy games on the schedule. Not when two out of your first three opponents are on the road at North Dakota State and Syracuse. Great Danes also have early dates with Villanova and Delaware, and both were picked in the top 5 in the CAA Preseason Poll released on Tuesday. UAlbany was picked 8th, which means very little. If the Great Danes can stay healthy, they will good on both sides of the ball and compete for a spot in the postseason. The Great Danes open their season on September 4th against North Dakota State and Coach Gattuso is getting the team ready for it. Coach joined the show to detail the roster and the 8th ranking they got in the CAA preseason rankings. Make sure to listen above!

To the NFL now and it now known that quarterback Aaron Rodgers will play for the Green Bay Packers this season, but it will be under his terms. The terms have nothing to do with money, but everything to do with the restructuring his contract so he can play elsewhere after this season. Packer fans should enjoy Rodgers for one more season, because it will be his last in Green Bay unless the unforeseen comes to fruition. Crazier things have happened.
