Have you heard any solid names for trick plays or special formations (e.g., a reverse-toss from Guiton (QB) to Braxton (WR) a few years back was called "Jazzy")?

Agreed. I see this as on par with being a bad host. If this had gone down *at* Baylor... Legendary.

Herman will decline and found MENSA University. His first hire will be the inexplicably ascendant and eternal COY, Kirk Ferentz. 

Oklahoma will then turn to and get Bert with the stipulation that he gets weekly rides on the Sooner Schooner.

"Nostalgia - it's delicate, but potent . . . It's a twinge in your heart far more powerful than memory alone." ~ Don Draper

I can think of nothing nostalgic or even noteworthy from the few NFL games I have attended. Setting Ohio Stadium aside, there is something almost magical about the atmosphere surrounding every college game (down to D-III games with dozens in attendance) I've ever taken in.
