Women's Clinics

College football teams have either held or are planning their annual women's clinics and college football's feminine fans are raring to go.  The clinics usually go by one of two styles- some are in the cushy "ladies who lunch" format with coaches instructing them while others get the girls down on the field running through real drills and plays with the coaches. Some have fashion shows of gameday wear for the ladies or the gameday gear for the players and coaches.  Some are geared toward a casual fan that wants to learn the basics, while others focus on well-seasoned female football fans who like to draw up their own plays.  
Here is an overview of some clinics around the country.

The purpose of this clinic is to provide every woman the opportunity to listen and interact with the coaches on the Oregon football staff and to gain knowledge and insight into the game of college football... and to have fun while doing it.The content of the clinic has been geared towards providing basic and fundamental information with the opportunity to take your understanding to the next level.There will be a welcome reception during registration prior to the lectures and demonstrations with heavy hor d'oeuvres, soft drinks, water, thirst quenchers, as well as beer and wine for those participants over the age of 21.Although there will not be a lot of physical activity, a changing room is available for those women who are coming straight from work or an appointment.
The format of the clinic is designed to provide every woman the basic concepts and nuances of Offense, Defense, and Special Teams. The lecture format will allow the participants to ask questions throughout the clinic.

Kent State Golden Flashes

Kent State's football coaching staff hosted the second annual "A Ladies Must Get As" clinic on Wednesday, June 20 at Dix Stadium. 

Activities began in the Golden Flashes' team room, where participants learned everything from how to put equipment on...to what players ate and the involvement of athletic trainers.  After entering the field through the smoke-filled tunnel, women went into groups participating in drills and practicing formations for offense, defense and special teams.

Happy Gameday

Snack on the Stadium

With bowl week upon us, I felt it "important" to re-publish October's Snack Stadiums post.  Snack Stadiums strike me as the uber-appropriate addition to a holiday gameday party.  Whip one up in the next couple weeks or start planning for a Super Bowl Snack Stadium.  Enjoy!


You are going to love this gallery of football stadiums made of  enough food for the entire party.  Holy Taco gives you the instructions to  create this beauty, complete with the dip field.  Click here for the instructions.



Now this is the time I should let you know that there is an entire website  dedicated to these pieces of edible art/architecture/engineering feat.   www.snackadium.com.  I am not making this up!   Here's what you'll see over there:



The Old Try

The regular season is over and it's time to start thinking about the season (aka bowl season).  Don't forget to check out past Gameday Style posts for more great gift ideas.
First up, is The Old Try.  I purchased this print a few months ago for my home that's trying hard to raise two gentlemen...

The Old Try has some Gameday Style in a subtle, fun and classy way.  Subtle, because you may not know what some of these designs are referring to, unless you're a devoted fan of one of these Southern schools.
