Thought I would add to this and this quote is from the above link.


In the week leading up to media day the league is encouraging its fans to submit questions it can incorporate in the ESPN3 broadcast. A multitude of outlets exist to interact with CAA Football.

UD just announced that six of the games will be televised for the coming season. Most of it is just Comcast Sports Network, but still, better than nothing.

I saw on the UNH page that we have 4 televised games...I always want more. And so far our opener on Sept. 1 @ Toledo is not on ESPN3 which I was really hoping for...

I just went on the UD site and I just have to ask if they always display the playoff schedule? I had a little chuckle in the perceived (and deserved) confidence!

Towson has the same thing on their schedule. I noticed it while determining whether I can make any games up in Baltimore this season. http://www.towsontigers.com/SportSelect.dbml?DB_OEM_ID=21300&SPID=12497&SPSID=101457

Now that Delaware has announced its schedule with start times and TV dates, can we expect the CAA to come out with the complete TV schedule or will we have to wait until the day before/of Media Day?

Just like with the Phil Steele mag, I'm sure ESPN3 can track how many people are watching online.

This also goes for fans of other conferences. If they see there is interest in the CAA, they'll likely try this with other conferences.

If you're around, tune in that date and let's see if we can get more FCS coverage.

UD has had that as long as I can remember. It's actually kinda helpful. Reminds fans to keep those weekends open...just in case. xthumbsupx

Congrats to the CAA. Y'all are truly the class of FCS...

Unfortunately the SoCon decided to cancel the 2009 media days to save money... and I don't think they've had one since.

Yup, you're right. I remember now. Is the SoCon still holding a fan day? I believe the first one was at Samford when they joined. Geez. xlolx

No doubt when you see the CAA's twitter feed, football blog, YouTube channel, media day coverage, etc. it's hard not to be jealous. Definitely head and shoulders above whatever the hell is going on in our conference. :(

Yup, it's always been done that way, at least as long as they've had internet postings of the schedule. I agree, good to keep people reminded of dates in December that could be occupied.
