The winter months always gets a bit harsher after the college football season comes to an end. Spring practice helps some of us fill the void and ease the pain of yet another season with a win less than we wanted. But it's just a temporary fix, because the waiting continues.
Don't get us wrong, we love the late spring and early summer months. It's when we get outside and enjoy the moment more than any other time of the year. But there's just something magical about the start of the season, and not just for once again bearing witness to the blood and sweat on the gridiron. The new season is a time when we renew traditions, reconnect with old friends and make new ones along the way.
