My, we're looking way down the line, aren't we? Did you post this to fill a need, because United still hasn't released theirs even though the season starts in two months? ;)

Yep, nothing much was going on and the schedule was released that day so I needed something to talk about.

Plus I wasn't too thrilled writing about the whupping Florida State put on the Terps ;)
