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.
Parkway, I presume?
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.
Do motorcycles count?
Roll Me Away by Bob Seger. Just saw him in concert a few days ago. Silver Bullet Band is still impressive.
Our HS team of 6’0” country “try-hard”s ran into Toledo Macomber and Jim Jackson in the state tourney. It wasn’t a fair fight, but a pleasure to watch nonetheless due to his amazing talent.
Great to hear how positive he is about the program going forward. Reinforces what we all think about the players and coaches these past two years.
If Marotti sees that top pic he should feel pretty good about his job security.
+1 for the correct prediction. I picked Oregon, too, but just because I hate to watch Badger-ball.
Robbed or not, Joey's comments afterward show him to be a classy guy and for that I'm proud. Lots of quality dudes on this team.
No, it’s different because the ACC is top dog in hoops and they don’t do conference pride.
If you look closely, you can see my nephew in the Bijan Robinson tape......he's a freshman bass drummer in the Salpointe marching band. I'm trying to leverage my close connections to get a commitment from Bijan.
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.
I’m curious what you mean by a “typical South Florida recruitment”
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.
The new defensive brain trust needs to play it’s part, too. We all thought we’d see more of Martell last year after games were in hand, but too often we let weaker teams stay close. That hurt Martell’s development and maybe gave Haskins some stat padding.
Nice interview with Cameron Caffey - smart kid and seems like a really good guy.
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.
With the number of smart people who use this data, it’s amazing Bama is as big a favorite as they are.
Cooper lasted 13 years. You’re making the opposite point.
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.
Alabama is a historically great team with a chance to end up an undefeated champion. No chance they are involved with a conspiracy that would ruin their record.
On a related note - the band director for UW is an OSU grad and former member of TBDBITL, Brad McDavid.
