Great insight on the status of HS football in TX.  I would like to provide a little perspective on TX.  While I am in ATL now, I had the privilege of living in DFW for 3 years.  The summer in TX is a lot like winter in OH--you have 2 + months where you can't do anything outside because of 100+ degree weather.  In addition, the temperature does not cool off at night either.

The Nissan commercial featuring "Day and Night" by Wiz Khaifa played a couple times here in GA.  I thought they capitalized on OSU's blackout uniforms as well.  The car turned from red (scarlet) to black and drove off. Overall, I thought it was pretty cool.

I don't post often but craft beer is one of my favorite things.  Untapped app is awesome.  Also highly recommend Left Hand Milk Stout Nitro.  It is one of my favorites.

It was my first year moving from Columbus to Georgia.  I was on an airplane flying from Atlanta to Las Vegas.  Pilot came on PA and announced that we had to land because of a national emergency.  Ended up stuck in New Mexico for 2 days.  Finally was able to take bus back to Atlanta.  I think about that day every time going through TSA checkpoint.  God bless the men and women in our military.  Thank you for all you do!

Personally, I would not be concerned with how close the game was unless there was an injury or questionable call that impacted the outcome.

In addition, I would also factor when the original game occurred.  If the only loss occurred during the first three games of the season for young team that has demonstrated significant growth/ improvement over the remainder of the season then I would be inclined to give them a second chance when comparing them to a team that has more losses or a weaker strength of schedule.

I was a little surprised by that as well.  Although, I do recall that stadium looking rather small on TV during the game.

No worries...I was referencing the ALL GAME attendance record that Auburn achieved last year.  The reason I am optimistic is that we add 2500 new seats at the Shoe.  That's a 17K potential increase over 7 games when compared to last year.  In addition, the five away stadiums we play in the regular season next year will be TCF Stadium at 50K, Byrd Stadium at 54K, M&T Bank at 71K, Spartan Stadium at 75K and Beaver Stadium at 107K.  This provides another 44K potential increase compared to last years away games.  Auburn's 2013 mark is easily surpassed by assuming next year's post season totals will be about the same and we get at least half of the potential increases identified above.  The biggest unknown is I haven't figured out if there is anyone else poised to make a bigger jump in total all game attendance than us next year.
