Football is here!

Maybe you prefer to go with report day as your start to the football season. For Oklahoma State, that is Wednesday, August 1st.

Or if you hold out for practice to actually begin, your start to the season is August 2nd.

If meeting OSU players and getting autographs is something you or your kids would enjoy, mark down Saturday, August 4th in your calendars. OSU football will hold its annual fan appreciation day, starting at 1 p.m. inside of Gallagher-Iba Arena. Earlier that morning, the Cowboys will participate in their annual Media Day and photo session.

Tuesday, July 31st will be a loaded day for head coach Mike Gundy. In addition to preparing to greet his team the following day, Gundy will host the local media for an annual golf outing in the morning and then head to Tulsa that afternoon for the final 2007 Cowboy Caravan stop.

However you slice it, a new college football season is barreling towards us. Later today and tomorrow, OSI will have loads of content from the Big 12 media days, thanks to a strong contingent from rivals.com. Adarius Bowman and Martel VanZant have both been major hits with the conference media today.
