Is the soloist in this video actually playing the saxophone?

This was my first thought as well.  My second was "if that saxophone moves, does this turn in to NSFW material?"

Great read as always!

I have a 3 year old and if he wants to play football when he gets older, I will absolutely let him.  I haven't decided how old he needs to be before I allow it though.  My dad's rule for me was that I had to be able to do 100 pushups, 100 situps and run 2 miles before he let me play.  Looking back I think that was a good rule as it wasn't necessarily about how old I was, but how in shape I was.  Granted I was a good athlete and played baseball, basketball and soccer, but he wanted to make sure that I was in good physical condition to take the hits.  This was early to mid 90s so CTE and concussions weren't really a thing people worried about.  I did get a concussion (never diagnosed or went to the doctor) my junior year when I got blindsided and took a helmet to the earhole.  I remember being nauseous at halftime and just didn't feel right.  I asked my best friend on the team if I looked alright and he was like yeah you're fine.  I don't remember playing the 2nd half and later my friend told me that I didn't look alright, but he didn't think we would win if I didn't play.  Just goes to show how much of a non-issue concussions were at the time.  With the information and education we have now, if that same situation occurred, I or my friend would have reported it to the coaches and/or training staff and I would have not played the 2nd half and maybe not even the next week.

Sept. 10, 1983 against Oregon.  I was 4 and went with my Dad and a few of his workmates.  The only thing I remember is we sat in the endzone and it was really hot.

I was born in Ohio, but my parents are from PA and didn't have college team they rooted for.  I was a huge Steelers fan (and still am) and I loved football both college and NFL, just didn't really have a college team.  Until I moved to Tennessee in high school and all my new friends were huge Tennessee fans.  I had never experienced fandom of that level for a college team.  I figured I'd better choose a team and I had to go with my home state and root for the Buckeyes.  I was a fan ever since then, but didn't start following them closely until the 2002 season.  I was still living in TN and my best friend from Ohio had started working for a company here and got me a job.  He was a huge fan and his influence took my fandom from around a 5 to a 9 or 10.  We traveled doing construction work and it was just great getting to reunite with him.  We were in our early 20's and single so we had a lot of fun doing what most single guys in their early 20's do.  We got to watch most of the games in that magical season together.  I can still remember the shit-hole hotel we watched the NC game at in Pensacola, FL.  Ever since then I have been a die-hard fan!

And you probably stayed at a Holiday Inn last night

No disputing what he did for the program. I am just not a fan of him personally. And I probably went overboard with the arrogant prick comment but this is a thread for unpopular opinions!
Comment 26 Jul 2019
I agree and will take it a step farther. UM is an arrogant prick. I couldn't stand him before he got here. I really tried to overlook it while he was here. I'm glad that he is gone, but thanks for all the wins!

Same for me.  I thought about trying S4, but from reading the comments, it just seems like more of the same from S3.

Wow, Reno is still there! I remember meeting him once when I was in high school in the mid 90s.  They were always good and we usually tried to catch one of their playoff games.

Just win.  I don't care who we play.

Clemson plays Texas A&M and South Carolina in non-conf. so their schedule isn't that weak.

Bammy's non-conf is arguably just as weak as ours.

I'm wanting to come up for the Michigan St game for my birthday this year.  I've only been to 2 games, one in 1983 (I think) that I barely remember and the other in 2003 against San Diego St that was barely worth remembering.  I've never got to tailgate or go to the skull session and really hope I can get the full experience!
