Who said Mondays can’t be enjoyable?
The Northeast Conference is giving football fans a reason to look forward to the start of the work week.
The NCAA Division I FCS league will ceremoniously kick off its 19th season on the gridiron this upcoming Monday.
In an attempt to prime fans and media for what lies ahead this fall, the conference’s communications department will host a #NECFB Head Coaches’ Google Hangout beginning at 11:00 am EST August 4.
The Head Coaches “Hangout” will bring the league’s seven head coaches together in a virtual chat room where they’ll share information on their teams as well as their outlooks for the 2014 campaign.
Long-time NEC football TV announcer Paul Dottino will host the Google “Hangout,” which will air live, for the public to see, on the NECsports Google+ and YouTube pages.
The program will consist of three segments: No-Huddle Preview, Twitter Timeout and the X’s and O’s Discussion.
Fans and media can be a part of the program by tweeting questions for the coaches using the #NECFB hashtag. The best questions received prior to, and during, will make it on air.
The program will begin with the announcement of the NEC preseason poll results and the naming of the 27-member Preseason All-NEC Team. Immediately thereafter, Dottino will dive into the No-Huddle Preview.
