The US won the gold medal in men's basketball this year at Beijing in the Olympic Games held in China, redeeming a drop to bronze in 2004 Olympic Games in Athens, Greece. Marshall University last saw its football team post a winning regular season and make a trip to a bowl that same year, and the Herd is hoping to have a turnaround from a tough 3-9, injury-plagued season in 2007 starting game one.

Marshall turned up the hitting with the first true "two-a-day" practice day of the August 2008 camp. Mark Snyder was happy with the "thud" practice that is hitting without taking offensive players down to the ground, and there was some very good plays on both the offensive and defensive sides of the ball, which is exactly how Snyder would have it during the third day in full pads.
