If you have scrimmages or details to add, email them to me at [email protected] or tweet to @KeithMcSheaBN and I'll update the list as soon as I can.
We'll be bopping around Western New York on Scrimmage Saturday -- as we have the last two years -- to catch as much football as we can in a limited time.
Third annual disclaimer/explainer: Regular visitors to the blog or live chats know how much I love it when fans cite scrimmages as evidence for one team being better than another during the regular season, especially when it comes to the discussion of our polls. Just because I'm interested in all of the scrimmages (and getting to as many as I can), and learning about teams and players, they are still scrimmages. Once the season starts, I don't want to hear about who "beat" who. :-)
But on Saturday, we want your reviews and breakdowns of what you saw. Keep it in context -- try and notice which first-team units are out there and what the teams are trying to do. Be sure to comment here, tweet us or send an email.
