CAA Football Commissioner Tom Yeager offered the following statement leading into Wednesday’s 2012 CAA Football Media Day kickoff event at M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore, Md.
“As we turn our focus to the 2012 season and the upcoming CAA Football Media Day, I wanted to provide an advance statement regarding conference expansion to minimize distractions from the more important activities of Media Day.
Even prior to the announced departures this spring, we had been quietly exploring possible membership realignments. To the extent that we can maintain the confidentiality of the discussions, we have endeavored to do so to protect the interests of all parties involved. We will continue to maintain our confidentiality and will not comment about particular institutions. In the end, we are confident that the league will continue to grow its legacy as the preeminent FCS conference in the country.
We are excited about the 2012 season and the record coverage our new national television partner the NBC Sports Network and our syndicated regional partners, the Comcast SportsNets will provide our fans, teams and student-athletes.”
CAA Football Media Day Live, a two-hour free broadcast of 2012 CAA Football Media Day on CAAFootball.com, will highlight the league’s annual kickoff event, Wednesday, July 25. CAA Football Media Day Live will air 10 a.m.-12 p.m., live from M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore, Md., and feature each of the league’s head coaches as well as selected student-athletes from around the league.
Not only will CAA Football and FCS fans around the country be able to watch the free show previewing the upcoming 2012 season, but they will also have the opportunity to interact with each other and the league regarding media day. CAA Football will run a CoverItLive blog on CAAFootballblog.com in conjunction with the internet broadcast, and will also post updates throughout the day using its Twitter and Facebook feeds. The official twitter hashtag for the 2012 CAA Football Media Day and Media Day Live broadcast is #CAAFBmd.
