Spring can only mean one thing…college football
In the midst of college basketball conference tournaments, the final push for playoff positioning in the NBA, the second round of the World Baseball Classic, spring training for the major league baseball players that aren’t participating in the Classic, and Tiger Woods’ second tournament since returning from knee surgery, what could be the hottest topic among sports fans in the state?
