I second that. Thank-you for all the hard work. Must be difficult to find things to talk about during the off-season. Looking forward to the posting of the schedule.

There is certainly a lot going on with the program right now. Unfortunately, some of the hot news can't be posted until we are given the go ahead by the higher powers.
