Sorry again for the delay in posting our Leftovers this weekend. Our video department, which produces all our promos, recaps, preseason and postseason videos, is also involved in several other sports at the CAA. Championships are upon us and the videos guys are traveling to capture the league’s championship footage.
Thanks for all of the votes cast in last week’s midweek fan poll which teams should make the playoffs if the season ended before the Nov. 6 games. All sorts of wacky things can happen between now and then, but we know the sentiment is unanimous from our head coaches…a 7-win team from CAA Football deserves to be in the playoff field. Take a listen to the archives from the past couple weeks of the league’s weekly media teleconference…click here. Checkout the full results of last week’s midweek fan poll below.
