It's the time of the year when football fans begin to get the urge to check out the home schedule, to read the pre-season magazines about their favorite team, and to place their order for season tickets. That's definitely the feeling at Miami University.
Coach DON TREADWELL's RedHawk football squad, picked by one publication to win the MAC East in 2012, has been going through strength and conditioning drills for about a month now. But the real deal begins on Thursday, August 2 when players officially report to camp. The first official practice is Friday afternoon, August 3.
Treadwell, senior quarterback ZAC DYSERT (Ada) and senior defensive lineman AUSTIN BROWN (Woodbridge, VA) will represent Miami next Tuesday, July 24, at the annual Mid-American Conference Media Day at Ford Field in Detroit. The MAC and ESPN have announced that this year's 2012 MAC Football Media Day will be shown LIVE nationally on ESPN3. The event will be carried live from 8:30 a.m. to 12 Noon ET and will feature each of the league's head coaches as well as selected student-athletes from the 13 football institutions.
