Roll Tide! Any other fans on the forums looking forward to fall Saturdays?
I have become adept at using the internet and casting the video from my phone and pc to my tv.Among other sports, I do follow American Football a bit. Have done since the days of Joe Montana and Jerry Rice.
Here in the UK the coverage is restricted to a "dog and pony show" of a programme at the week-end on the BBC with more talk than action. Gone are the days when the BBC used to show the Monday Night Game live in the small hours of our morning.
Our youngest son played amateur American Football herre in the Uk for about ten years. He's a big lad and was quick on his feet played wide receiver and later tight--end.
My wife and I went to all the games on Sundays. But he got too old for it twenty years ago now. She could probably still explain the "illegal receiver downfield," rule.
My favourite story was that at one match our son got hit by two defenders and was laid out on the pitch. My wife said to me, "Go down and see if he's OK." I replied, "He'd rather die than have his dad come onto the pitch to check on him!" He was only winded and got up after a minute and carried on. There was always an ambulance and first-aiders at the ground. The rules of the league would not allow a game to start unless they were in attendance.
Gonna watch it. Love Coach O. I hope he does well. He is cut out for it, larger than life SEC character for sure. Good for the game. I liked to watch The Mad Hatter eat grass, but Coach O is just fun and excited in his own way.LSU game might be good tonight. If the 'Cains are what the media thinks they are.
There are worse theories. There is a saying that "On any given day any team can beat any other in the SEC".have to say, when it comes to super bowl. I write down the winner on a paper and seal it in an envelope, prior to the game, you see, it irritates my husband if I make any prediction , as he will say, you can't do that , you have not studied all year who will win. I laugh inside me, as at least 90% of the time I am right. I just use a stupid theory.
Well thank you guys for giving Saban to Bama!SEC seems to require a larger the life personality to head the team. Was a rumor floating around Miles was going to be back in the SEC, one of the Mississippi teams. Would make things even more interesting to watch. All of these former LSU coaches around the SEC.
