Now that the excitement of Wednesday’s event has died down we wanted to throw some of the recaps at you. There is all sorts of great content from our schools and those members of the media which attended. Speaking of those who attended, we are proud to announce Wednesday’s event attracted nearly 200 total registrants…a record for media day attendance in the five years CAA Football has held the event. A huge thank you goes out to all who were at the event and made that possible.
Those numbers are simply people who were at the event. It doesn’t include the 200+ readers of the live blog, the 600+ who jumped on CAAFootballblog.com and the 6,000 people who visited CAAFootball.com Wednesday. Those numbers, combined with our overwhelming response and viewership on the Media Day Live show, are tremendous statistics which will only help us as we grow our coverage of CAA Football in the future.
If you happen to have missed CAA Football Media Day Live on ESPN3.com or just want to watch it again logon to ESPN3.com between now and the end of August for the full two-hour show in the network’s archive. CAAFootball.com has plans to archive the show as well in segments once ESPN3’s archive timeframe expires.
We posted loads of videos and photos from throughout the day to CAAFootball.com, while our live blog in conjunction with Media Day Live was going on. Here is the photo gallery located on CAAFootball.com.
