CHAMBERS NOT HERE: Wide receiver Seneca Chambers out of Hinds CC did not qualify academically and will not be joining the Blue Raiders in 2003.
VIDEO, PHOTO DAY: All 105 Blue Raiders were required to take a video head shot in uniform today in order to prepare for the upcoming television games in 2003. Also, the newcomers had to take digital head shots along with video shots.
IF LOOKS COULD TELL: The Blue Raiders reported in top shape this year and it was made very clear on Friday as every player looked bigger and stronger from a year ago. The summer workout program, which has become one of the more important aspects of the game, was a big plus to this year's group of players. "Robb Rogers deserves a lot of credit for the work he put in with these guys," McCollum noted. "He is the best in the business and we are very fortunate to have him in our program."
FAN DAY: Middle Tennessee's annual fan day is set for August 16 at Noon in Floyd Stadium. Fans will be able to gain autographs from all the players and coaches, while also having the opportunity to take a picture with their favorite Blue Raider. There will be free cokes and hot dogs, a rock climbing wall, a football toss game, and 102.9 The Buzz will be doing a live remote from the event. Fan day is free and open to the public.
MEDIA IN ATTENDANCE: Channel 2 and Channel 4 were on hand to interview Coach Mac.
