Addazio: "We have to find our edge"

After practice over the weekend, Steve Addazio was asked to share some of his thoughts on entering a new chapter in the Big East. What he said should strike a chord for many coaches around the country entering their own respective camps.

"This new chapter means that we have to find our edge. What's going to give us that edge? As we roll into this new conference right now, what's our edge? How can we make ourselves different. We talk a lot about that."

"One of the things that we can do is all the things that don't take talent, we can do them really well. Tremendous physical conditioning, mental toughness, great assignment knowledge, attention to detail. Those things don't require you to be faster, bigger, stronger, they just require a little bit more mental toughness." Addazio explained.

Goodell wants football featured in Olympics

Roger Goodell joined The Dan Patrick Show and guest host Mike Florio earlier today and was asked his thoughts on whether he would like to see football featured in the Olympic games.

Goodell notes football's growth and interest worldwide as one of the key factors. Goodell said he "absolutely" wanted to see Football played in the Olympics. 

"We're already taking steps to gain that IOC recognition. We have, I think, 64 countries that are playing American football now, and that's one of the requirements. That's been growing dramatically. I think it was 40 just five years ago."

Interest from international cities such as London to host NFL games has also influenced Goodell's outlook.

"Our point is just to keep growing the game. We're having a tremendous reaction in London and the UK for the game of football, our regular season game over there is sold out again this year, we are seriously contemplating as early as 2013 playing two NFL games next season and I think we'll do that. It's a response to the tremendous fan reaction and the growth of the game. If we can continue to grow the game there and have the fan reaction that we have, there very well may be a franchise in London."

Taking a step back to process all of that information, we at FootballScoop still don't expect to be covering Football in the Olympics anytime soon.  Perhaps Roger is a little caught up in the Olympic fever at the moment. 

Solid "Day One" video from Ole Miss

The guys over at Ole Miss have done a great job producing quality videos all off season.

Their latest addition, entitled "Day One" is no exception. Bottom line is that to accomplish any of their goals, there must be a "Day One." That's where it all starts.
