The start of football season usually comes with guarantees: someone flips a switch and a chill comes back into the air; my friends and I ponder how Ron Zook still has a job; and, Notre Dame is usually ranked in the pre-season polls, and then usually chokes somewhere along the line.

Two weeks away from the 2011 season opener, Maryland Athletics on Monday unveiled its new football uniforms at the Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center.
University of South Carolina starting quarterback Stephen Garcia was suspended indefinitely Wednesday by Athletic Director Eric Hyman. The cause of the suspension is still not clearly known, but many speculate Garcia was acting inappropriately at an SEC seminar. This is not the first time that Garcia has been in trouble as trouble seems to follow the Lutz, Fl native. Garcia has missed two spring practices in the past and was held out of the first week of practice this year due to an incident in Atlanta before the Chick-fil-a Bowl in December.
