TV time for three former Bulldogs

The NFL debuts for Shane Bannon, Chris Blohm and Tom McCarthy can be seen on the NFL Network on a tape-delayed basis between Saturday and Monday.

McCarthy is up first as the rookie defensive end will suit up for the Atlanta Falcons against the Miami Dolphins. The game, which will kick off at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, will air on Saturday at 1 p.m.

Blohm is a tight end recently signed by the San Francisco 49ers and the 49ers play New Orleans in the preseason opener. The game, set for Friday at 8 p.m., will be shown on NFL Network on Saturday at 10:30 p.m.

Bannon, a fullback drafted by the Kansas City Chiefs in the seventh round in April's NFL draft, will play in his first NFL game when the Chiefs face the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Friday at 8 p.m. but it won't be shown on the NFL Network until 4 a.m. on Monday.

For those who want to look for the three former Yale teammates, Bannon wears No. 40, Blohm No. 47 and McCarthy No. 70.

Yale will be scrimmaging Division III Union once again. The scrimmage will be played on September 3. There will be a twist this year. Rather than trying to get all the players into the scrimmage, Yale has scheduled a junior varsity scrimmage against Hamilton College for September 11 so that all 113 players have a chance to play in a scrimmage setting.

It seems as if there is a conflict on the scrimmage. Union is suppose to have a regular season game on the same day when I looked on their schedule. Do you know anything about this? Just wondering if things have changed.

Just received an e-mail from Yale today saying there will be a change in opponents. When I hear who that will be, I will be sure to post it on my blog.
