    Hey Lotion Boy!

    Thanks for that post game report. College football up close and personal is a memorable experience. I appreciate the time you took to share.

    I'll be on the move early Sat. for Falcon Stadium. Kickoff vs. Navy is 0935 mountain time. Weather looks cold, windy, snowy. What is this? November? It was 80F yesterday!

    GO AIR FORCE!!!

    DESTROY NAVY!!!
    then, lunch! Should be a fun day in the meatspace.

    I'm down with that - gotta support the home conference. Go Air Force!

    Gonna miss watching the BSU Southern Miss game. Son Snow has a peewee game in Mountain Home so I will check in using the radio. ( Actually a good place to support Air Force given the proximity of the base.)

    First frost this am here. Next few days looks great - mid 60's and sun. Fall has arrived and a young mans thoughts turn to football, hunting (big game & waterfowl), ski waxing, fire wood and warm breasts in flannel shirts.

    A fine weekend to all.

    for anyone who watched this game and saw the hit on Woods, answer this question.

    how can Woods:

    1. take a serious blow to the head,
    2. get up and stumble around,
    3. fall face down on the field,
    4. sit out only one play, then
    5. return to finish the game

    did he have a concussion, or was he faking it? because as far as I know, if you get hit in the head and are dizzy enough to fall face down, you got a concussion. I thought they were getting serious about this stuff.

    If you ask me, the problem is the paradigm of players and coaches. How often do you hear the phrase "got his bell rung"? I agree too often we see people headed back into the game, but I think the problem is that we ask players to be iron tough for 60 minutes in all aspects of the game. Nick Saban often motivates kids with the story of him at Kent State playing with a broken leg. We expect this kind of toughness from our players, but expect them to sit out if they feel a little light headed? Not likely.

    Wrong Alabama coach.

    Although Coach Saban broke his leg at Kent St, he did not play afterwards. LINK

    Coach Bryant played with a broken leg in a 1935 game against 10RC. LINK

    Man I used to love watching Lee Corso and Gameday, but sad to say I think maybe it's time for him to retire. That stroke and his age seem to be taking it's toll and he's needing help from the rest of the crew these days. It's actually becoming a bit uncomfortable watching him. :cry

    Agree completely. I've always enjoyed Corso's craziness. This is different and sad. I wish it weren't so but watching him struggle takes the fun out of it.

    I have heard that story too. But did appreciate the refresher on Bear. What a cool canine.
