Calling the annual night game Under the Lights makes the game easy to identify (ex: "Remember UTL against Fuckston University? That was a great game")
BUT, there doesn't need to be a huge marketing campaign branding it as UTL XXII with T-shirts and snow globes and miniaturized UTL XXII action figures.
|1 day 11 hours ago||Here's a game picture||
Best case scenario (i.e under the lights), it looks like this.

He was tough when he needed to be, but was a nice guy all-around and a fantastic coach.
|4 days 6 hours ago||If you expand it to 8 and beyond||
What's even the point of playing the conference championship games, if half of the losers are still gonna get a shot at the national championship?
|4 days 12 hours ago||Oh, Uncle Lloyd||
God I loved him. "Why would you ask a dumb question like that?"
|4 days 12 hours ago||Except||
Except that most USC fans HATED the Carroll hiring, which is obviously amusing in retrospect. I don't remember how Saban was received, but he hadn't done too well in Miami.
Maybe Charlie Weis got this kind of attention, but I can't think of anyone else. It is remarkably unprecedented.

That became my and my parents' favorite place to go.

|5 days 12 hours ago||Apparently he's not as sour as popular opinion has it||
Obviously he's a strict taskmaster but I hear he has a quirky sense of humor that he puts on display every so often for his players. His players say he's a "player's coach" which isn't somewhat I'd necessarily have thought.
|5 days 12 hours ago||Wish he was on a team I could root for||
C'est la vie, everyone starts somewhere.
|6 days 4 hours ago||I haven't had any bad ones||
My roommate, however, is very into Bar Rescue (he and his boyfriend are actually watching it right now as I type this) so I've seen enough horrible bar situations to feel as though I have experienced at least one.
|6 days 7 hours ago||Bah humbug||
Truly elite coaches go 11-2 and win the Sugar Bowl in their first season.
|6 days 11 hours ago||Right||
Which is why I didn't have a problem with it to begin with. Junior Hemingway already had the #21 jersey; now he gets a patch added to it and a nice ceremony for Desmond. All well and good.
Once players started switching numbers and it became a huge deal, well, that wasn't so good, which we agree on. But to say that the moment the Legends program came into existence was the exact moment that the Hoke era "jumped the shark" is fairly shortsighted.
|6 days 12 hours ago||I disagree||
When they first came out, I thought it was really cool. When Desmond was getting honored for all of his accomplishments right before the start of UTL, the stadium was rocking, he was standing there with tears running his face, I had chills down my spine... it was special moment, and a unique thing.
I'm not so much a fan of how it eventually went, but it started out as a great idea.

How the hell did he manage to sprint with his undies around his knees?
|1 week 1 day ago||I used to play the everloving shit out of Battlefront II||
I would have been so excited about this about five years ago; now I'm just like "LOOK AT THOSE FUCKING GRAPHICS, MAN, SWEEEET" while knowing I'll probably never play it.

I went to high school down there. Beautiful area.

|1 week 2 days ago||You know, people always say this||
But think about how many Bama-LSU or USC-UCLA games have been played at night. Hell, the Iron Bowl first played a night game in 1967 and they've done it tons of times since.

|1 week 3 days ago||Wish they'd let students train at those S&C centers||
They look unbelievably nice.
|1 week 3 days ago||Sure, if you put it on bacon|

But the reason helmets were introduced in the first place is that too many people were dying.
|1 week 4 days ago||They're making a fourth?!||
What the hell?
|1 week 4 days ago||That was fucking amazing.||
Even better was Snyder's response to it: he created a $2 million libel lawsuit over a piece that, according to his own admission, he never actually read. Called it "anti-semitic".
|1 week 4 days ago||Yeah, seriously||
It was just a decade ago that they set the record for most losses in a season.
