UMaine Football Begins Pre-season Practice 

The UMaine football season is still four weeks away, but the grind began Monday on the Orono campus.There is a veteran group coming back this year but one of the starting spots that still needs to be solidified is that of quarterback. Two guys have been vying for the position. The team will have 29 practices and few would call this a fun part of the season. It won’t be long before its game time though.The team actually starts the season with its bye week and will play its first game on the road at Boston College, September 8th.
