Spring football games are in the air
I realize it's March. I realize the NCAA Tournament is going on right now. I realize the Mudbugs are making a playoff push. I realize spring training will soon wrap up in baseball.
But this weekend LSU, Grambling and Northwestern State are all wrapping up spring football drills. Grambling will play its spring game at 11 a.m. on Saturday. LSU will follow at noon and Northwestern State is at 6 p.m.
Yes, spring football doesn't count. And yes, the stars don't often play a lot in spring games. But this is the time when you see the guys who will likely emerge in fall camp. This is the time the serious fan can get an idea about what kind of team he can expect to see in 2007.
