Deron, the younger brother of New England's Jerod Mayo, is already behind the eight ball - he's an undrafted rookie free agent who must learn a playbook in the shortest NFL training camp in a long time. He's also listed at 5-11 and 220 pounds, which is on the lighter side for NFL linebacker standards. His best bet is to earn a roster spot as a special teams contributer. But no matter how he performs in camp, we're proud of Deron's accomplishments!

During Media Day, the conference announced that 28 games involving CAA teams will be broadcast on television. This represents the best television package among FCS conferences. You'll get to watch Old Dominion at Georgia State (9/10), at Delaware (9/24) and home against James Madison (10/29) at the Oyster Bowl.
Lastly, the FCS Roundtable on SaturdayBlitz.com discussed the topic of the favorites to win the national title this season. If you're a fan of Georgia Southern, William and Mary or James Madison, you'll enjoy my post. You can expect to see me write more as our busy season winds down, plus I may soon be writing for a favorite fan forum in an official capacity. For which forum would that be? Stay tuned to find out!
