Just around the corner

McMurry football training camp starts Wednesday, and it's hard to believe that it's already here. I just saw all the assistant coaches making preparations in the weight room for players to arrive and the excitement is picking up around there in a big way. Many McMurry fans will be eager to see how Hal Mumme and company build on the 4-6 season from 2009 after just two wins from 2007-2008 combined.

A strong core of returnees will be back on both sides of the ball, and in case you missed it, we were voted to finish fifth out of nine teams. While McMurry's staff is expecting better, it's still a huge step up from the projected ninth-place finish that the 2009 preseason poll brought. McMurry was 4-4 in conference play.

If you'll remember last year, this blog became popular among McMurry fans because of our coverage and daily videos during training camp. This year we will try to repeat that coverage and bring McMurry fans the training camp experience. Keep checking back in the next couple of days, but obviously, Wednesday is reporting day and Thomas and I will be at work bringing you all the action.

Stay tuned ...
