It's official, the Jets just announced that they will hold this year's training camp upstate at SUNY Cortland. SUNY Cortland is a four-hour drive from New York City.
However, the team has also decided to hold a few practices on their home turf. On Wednesday, August 12th they will have what they call "Family Night" back at Hofstra, which was the team's home base until last September and where they held all training camps for the past 40+ years.
Then they will have some practices open to the public at the new facility in Florham Park on Saturday August 22nd, Wednesday August 26th and Thursday August 27th, which by my calculation should probably be the final day of camp.
In addition, apparently responding to the negative response fans have had regarding the team going away for camp, the Jets are going to make some of their June mini-camps open to the public as well. That will begin June 6th and I'll let you know when they give us a more specific schedule.
In the meantime, let's hope Cortland has enough hotels.
