Default In 6 hours we can say "Preaseason SEC 2017 magazines hit shelves THIS month" !!!

Its the last day of April. Spring ball is over. Draft is over.

Tomorrow is May 1st. Its the day MY official countdown begins. When I know THIS MONTH the new preseason preview magazines hit the shelves. I dont search for the release date. Ruins the fun. But Lindys SEC is always first. I expect Bentley on the cover.

I love checking the magazine stand at Publix or Barnes & Noble every 2 or 3 days in May until....that glorious day when I see a USC player on a shiny crisp glossy Lindys SEC Preview staring back at me. It gets me through the summer. It builds the anticipation.

To me its as good as anything all year outside of actual games. The anticipation and hope all the teams have. There are 6 months a year with NO COLLEGE football. Tomorrow...we will officially be past 3 of those. May. June. July remain.

Kickoff of preseason anticipation starts in 6 hours....

Agree w all!!! Yes. I am a lunatic this time of year. Like a heroin addict in withdrawal.

I'll get that Lindys in mid May and spent weeks reading about the 3rd string long snapper at Kentucky or the odds of the worst CUSA team making a turnaround.

My favorite however is Street & Smiths. They cover ALL D1 teams so Citadel, Furman, Coastal, Charleston Southern, etc are in it. I keep up w all the in state schools and our FCS teams if no one has noticed have been very good in recent years. I may be mistaken but in the last 8 years we've had 6 of our 7 FCS teams make the FCS national playoffs and 5 out of 7 have won their conference championship. We might be the #1 state in America for depth of quality FCS teams.

Here, I'll save you $7. It was a down up down year last year. We showed signs of life at times, but then lost ugly to Florida and Clemson, and couldn't stop USF from scoring. If the offensive line can improve, then we have the pieces to score lots of points.

On defense, we have to find a consistent pass rush, especially now since we lost the person that led our team in sacks. Kinlaw could come in and be an immediate boost, but we need major help on the ends. For the linebackers, they will question Moore's health a little bit, and say that we are lacking depth there. We will be forced to have to play freshmen and hope that they improve as we go along. The secondary should be improved.

Elliott Fry is gone, and we will have to find a consistent kicker.

The schedule is tough, but we avoid some teams from the West that will be good.

Overall last year wasn't as good or as bad as it could have been. We have to continue to recruit, and hope that we can slow the opponents down just enough to outscore them. 7 to 8 wins would be a good year.

Opposing coach comments will include something about how good Bentley, Deebo or Dowdle can be, and how our defense couldn't generate any pressure.

There, I just summed up what all of the articles will say. Now, I plan to sue them for plagiarism once their mags come out.

I used to read those back in the 90s but it was obvious the people writing about USC didn't really follow USC and didn't know much about USC, other than what our record ways and performance in the major statistical categories.

Yeah, I read them back in the day as well. It's funny how I always came to the conclusion they only contained info any avid fan would know about the team. I was hoping for some inside info but it was never there. Now, with the internet being everywhere, I don;t even know how they sell any of those mags. I do like to hold an actual magazine and turn the pages though...

Not to trample on the OP's excitement though. I do like to see them sitting there on the shelf. It lets me know football will be back in session within a few of months.

I wouldn't get your hopes up for these magazines to predict us to win 9 games this year, or even 8.

I would like to see this happen, as long as the defense is good enough to keep Lamar Jackson from lighting us up.

Destination wise, TaxSlayer makes sense but would not want to play Louisville and Lamar Jackson - assuming they are what they were last year.

Mmmmmm.....I can almost smell the anticipation!!!! I love it. It's all out there in front of us boys. The first weekend of college football. The fall. Halloween and Thanksgiving. Pumpkin crap. NFL Sundays. Christmas. Tailgating. High school games. I love it all and its creeping up on us. The NFL teams will be reporting to training camp in a little over 2 months......

Before you know it, seat selections will be open, then parking, that's when you know you are getting close!
