I'm getting old...       

 

It was just yesterday I would sprawl out on the carpet and watch NEW YEARS DAY games on TV ALL Day..  With Dick Enburg and Merlin Olsen doing the Rose Bowl.....       WOW...

 

The late 70's was a great time for college football.

Late 70's through the mid 80's...I used to cam out in the comfy chair, in my pajamas (til I got older) and sit and munch Jiffy Pop popcorn, drinking Turkey Hill Iced Tea, and watching J.C.Watts, Billy Sims, Earl Campbell, Johnny Rodgers..Listening to Keith Jackson go OH NELLIE when describing a great play...All the iconic coaches like Coach James, Tom Osbourn, Bear Bryant, Joe Paterno, Bo Schembechler, the list goes on and on.

 

My favorite time was always Thanksgiving day, between Oklahoma and Nebraska,,,Man I miss that rivalry...watch all the games, then sit down to a huge Turkey Dinner..

 

I relished those times, but even more so now..I look back and think how lucky I was to have seen what I've seen..My first and only college game I ever saw, was in Miami, when #1 Penn State took on #2 Oklahoma..OU started that year with troy Aikman at QB, but got hurt against Vinnie Testeverde and Miami, and lost his job to Jamelle Holloway..I got to meet Keith Jackson the TE, and "The Boz"..I was the only OU fan from Pa..I went on a charter trip with 127 other Penn State fans...The day before the Orange Bowl had an open house..We walked around the stadium, and got kicked off the field when we pretended to actually be playing..Come to think of i..I got the privilege of walking on the Orange Bowl Field...WOW...(sorry having a memory moment)..

 

But, back to the subject. Don James brought a lot to college football, and will truly be missed by all fans...My condolences to his family..

    • I gotta give it up to Gilmore. Whenever he was on Kelce, he made it difficult.    Thomas at safety was actually really good.    Pinter has no biz playing in this O-line. None. Strausser should be fired for not doing anything about it. Not to mention Smith has been really bad ever since he got paid. I hope it's due more than him trying to cover for Pinter.....Either way, super frustrating!   About time they started using Woods.    Sky Moore gave this team 6 points. Thanks dude.  Thanks to KC's kicker as well.  Chandler Jones won this game for the Colts. Big ups to him    As long as Frank is calling plays, this offense will have issues. The guy has zero feel for the game. How many 3rd downs did KC blitz?? Every single time?? Why were no adjustments made?  Ever since he's been here, this team CANNOT run screens. (nor defend them) He called 4-5 of them on 3rd and long, which he's done throughout his time here. WAY too predictable.  Why is he allergic to slants??  Just use Hines as a slot WR already.  Frank costs this team more points (4th down, my sheet says go for it DeR, dEr, DeR) than he helps them score.    Pederson and Siaranni led teams don't have a problem scoring points.   Kenny Moore got waxed on that missed throw by Mahomes.    Good job Yannick finally.    Also, it was nice to see Mclaughlin scoring some points. Whew! 
    • Colts won me 400 dollars yesterday and we are now 1-1-1 more importantly, 400 is sweet though, that will pay my car payment this month - I wish I could've bet 80% of the forum in here, I would be rich today  (just messing with you guys)
    • He doesn’t make guys miss often in space , he normally get tackled and slammed or runs towards the sidelines trying to get to first
    • A good win over a quality team. Baby steps. Oline needs work. Hopefully as the season goes on this team continues to gell on both sides in the ball and we get better.  Our rookies really stepped up and showed promise. This next game against the Titans will be interesting.
