With #Kickoff2013 on the horizon, only six days away to be exact, we decided to troll Twitter and plucked one notable tweet for each of the NEC’s seven football programs.

As the Bulldogs prepare for their August 31 opener against Holy Cross, this defensive end reached a Twitter milestone at training camp. #Congrats … NOTE: We think he meant the second word of his tweet to read “place” rather than “replace.” We’ll assume he fell victim to “auto-correct.”
The best sign that I have seen in 2 years on both sides of the ball is the improvement in our fundamentals#Fundamentals

During the #NECFB Head Coaches Google Hangout, Coach Mac noted that poor fundamentals were a key culprit in the Blue Devils’ struggles last year and he and his staff would make them a point of emphasis throughout camp.
Definitely going to get my Duquesne football team poster signed by @GDotCarter_2 . Best wide receiver out.

Gianni Carter certainly took the NEC by storm last season after transferring from Montana State. A 2013 preseason all-NEC selection, Carter is coming off a year during which he caught 57 balls for 865 yards and seven touchdowns (all three marks ranked second in the NEC). As far as getting his autograph goes, we wish you the best of luck in that endeavor, but we’re not sure if the Dukes will be signing for local school kids after their August 31 opener against Albany on The Bluff.

Rivals.com writer Andrew Chiappazzi covered Robert Morris’ scrimmage on Thursday night, exactly one week before legendary head coach Joe Walton opens his final season on the sidelines at Eastern Kentucky. With the starting quarterback position vacant following the graduation of former all-NEC signal caller Jeff Sinclair, Penn State transfer Paul Jones stepped up to earn the nod for Week 1.

Starting safety Gordon Hill seems to be pretty pleased with Sacred Heart new swag. With these new unis, the Pioneers are set to look fresh when they take the field in Week 1 at Marist.

The Red Flash hosted their annual preseason media luncheon on August 21 and posted plenty of images to their instagram account. Rochelle saw them. Did you? More importantly, will you be following the Flash as they open the season at six-time FCS national champion Georgia Southern on Sept. 7?

It was a big final week of camp for Wagner running back Dominique Williams. First, the Preseason All-NEC selection became the first-ever three-year captain in the history of the storied program. Then, he found out that College Sports Journal tabbed him a Preseason All-American. The congratulatory tweet from former Seahawk, and current Davidson assistant coach, Frank Swart is well-deserved.
