We will find out our league’s fate this Sunday in the way of the 2010 NCAA Division I Football Championships field of 20. Be sure to checkout the live selection show at 10 a.m. (ET) on ESPNU. Dari Nowkhah and Tom Luginbill will host the show as the 20 teams are announced.
No fan poll yet for this week…we are going to keep that one in the wrap until tomorrow when we unveil our Top 10 plays of the year. You will then be able to put them in order how you think…we will leave that poll open until Sunday morning. Check back for that Friday afternoon here on the blog, on YouTube and on CAASports.com.
We did get 106 votes in our CAA Football Player of the Week poll this week…that is unbelievable! Thanks to those who did vote. Delaware’s Pat Devlin edged out Richmond’s Eric McBride for the CAAFootballblog.com honor…lucky for us at the conference office we can hand out honors to both of them!
