I liked the role Ellis' dad played in Mud.
Much better than the comedic roles he played as the coach in Blind Side or as the campaign manager in Oh, Brother Where Art Thou....

We lost to Auburn on the arm of Jamie Howard.
I was there to see it.
I, however was not there for the Florda game. Had to keep adjusting the satellite dish, in a rainstorm, while on a fishing trip to Mexico.

Unsportsmanlike conduct on FSU for taunting, directed at Auburn's bench. Then later, Mason spikes the ball after a touchdown run and does the Heisman pose and gets no flag?
The horse collar was blatant as well....

I agree there may be too many classes/divisions.
I don't agree that all schools should be grouped together based solely on enrollment numbers.
Students that live in the school district where they attend school are who public, non-select schools have on their rosters. If you believe private sc...

I have brought up this point on this board before.
