The movie was called “Touchback”. By most accounts, it’s bad, but I haven’t seen it. If they were even trying to be honest, the protagonist would be named Muhlenkamp or Mueller instead of Murphy.

Happy to say I am a Coldwater graduate - from back when we were just a baseball school. I did not think we would make the countdown. I forgot about Harlamert.

Great Skully, Kevin, but I have one grammar pet peeve I should share.  My 18 year old daughter over-uses the word "literally" (as well as "like", "iconic", and maybe a few more) so I'm very sensitive to it.  You may be surprised to know it occurs four times in today's text. You should get credit for using it correctly, though I would argue that none of the four are necessary.

Zonabuck, appreciate the link.  Cool to see the opener performed for people who clearly haven't heard it before. They sort of took it as a comic novelty.  I think it's brilliant writing to be able to pull together the rhymes and cadences he uses all while telling a more-or-less realistic historical biography.

I won't argue your thesis here, but will add a note that whether or not someone has taken an AP class doesn't necessarily classify them as a mouth breather. My small town high school didn't even offer AP classes when I attended in the late 80's, but I managed to become a National Merit Scholar anyway.

One good half against Bama shouldn't put them in the playoff, other wise Citadel deserves a shot, too.

That's a mic drop line, there, Navy.

The purpose of college football is not to subsidize 35 varsity sports, 34 of which are losing money. 

Actually, that's the exact purpose, at least where the football team CAN make money.  In a vast majority of cases, none of the sports make a profit.  Their purpose is to provide a well-rounded education for the students.  OSU, Alabama, Texas and a few others are the exceptions.
