Love the Blues Brothers reference. Chicago area, we're x miles from (our destination), we're wearing sunglasses - hit it! I wonder how many caught it?
Looks like we're less patient with our home state boy than we were with that walking disaster Mike Riley.
Great behind the scenes article. Liked the descriptive narrative, such as "left a warm damp Lincoln behind". Bet you could write a good novel starting with "It was a dark and stormy night"! Good job.
I was at that Big 12 championship game in KC on a tour company game package. They had us in the same hotel as the team. I talked to Zac briefly, congratulating him on being named Big 12 Player of the Year. Exactly as Tom said - the kid next door, friendly, down to earth, not making himsel…
I too have to part ways with you on this Tom, The pass interference non call was blatant! And how about the NFL's OT rules? Do they just want to get the game over and go home and sit by the fire? The team who gets the ball usually scores. So the hard fought game for 60 minutes comes dow…

Add me to the list of people tired of 11am kicks. It messes up the day. College football was meant to be played at 2:30. Evening games would be second best. But good game anyway!
I was always impressed with the words of wisdom carved into the west side of Memorial Stadium, "Not the Victory, etc.". But I never bothered to think what they meant. Thanks for explaining. I can see how it could almost be construed to be an excuse for losing!
I can believe the story about the arrogant Saban brushing by Culpepper in an empty room without acknowledging him. And the way he abuses the Alabama press corps in interviews. He seems like a total jerk to me. I remember College Game Day showing him in the makeup trailer being primped for…
