I'm with you on this, Murray, but like you say, the primordial pull is strong. Every season I say to myself that I'm not going to watch, but then I think back to the '72 Dolphins (the team I grew up with) and the 7-Eleven Slurpee player cups I collected -- and I'm sucked in again.

A good read as always. As much as I like the NCAA version of the game, it is way beyond the level of the NFL when I started watching around '58. The NFL (whose former commish married a Milledgeville gal) merely uses the schools as farm teams. A 6'5'' 300 pounder who can run a 4.6 40 doesn't belong on a collegiate field. Pay 'em (they already earn it in entertainment value alone), but let the NFL sign the checks in Grand Rapids, Omaha, and San Antonio.

On the money, Murray.

What I'm Reading

  • Nick Hornby: Juliet, Naked (2009)
    I was at his reading when he was here in 2010 and picked up a signed copy. It illustrates how long one can go between purchase and consummation.
