I’m one of those people who tends to put college athletic programs into buckets based on which sport they are really good at or known for. To me, Kentucky has always been a “Basketball School.” And for good reason, right?

While many NFL eyes were in Atlanta for Super Bowl LIII and the end of the 2018 season, 30 other NFL teams were already very busy preparing for the 2019 season. Teams with new head coaches scrambled to round out their staff, while draft boards started going up in every front office.

As the final seconds of the Super Bowl clicked off the clock, most fans put the season to rest. Many moved on to baseball, basketball, soccer, or hockey. While others still starving for some type of NFL action or news will turn their attention to the NFL calendar.

One good thing the NFL has gotten extremely good at is promoting offseason transactions and events. Making many of these events, which used to be closed, open to the public. Fans can enjoy the Combine, Draft, and of course, the all-important tickets to training camps.
