You know it was loosely based on Billy Cannon’s life right?


I thought this was proven false.

Eta: the book was actually about a UNC player. The director was asked about the coincidence and said that’s exactly what it was, a coincidence.

I think Frank DeFord always insisted it wasn't based on Cannon, but an amalgamation of different athletes.

I don't think anyone doubts Cannon was at least one of those athletes though. There are some obvious parallels.

He lives in Bogalusa, ok maybe just outside of Bogalusa when he’s not filming., but lives in Louisiana non the less.

Same.

Bama game as I recall. They had to do a few takes because the crowd wasn't loud enough.

Why would John Goodman be the guest picker? Does he have any affiliation with either school?

Met and shook hands with him at Tiger Stadium in 98 after the ole Miss game he was fricked up



He must have been fricked up to be in Tiger Stadium trying to watch the LSU/OM game that was being played in Oxford.

Would LOVE John Goodman as guest picker


Many disagree, but I would also at some point in the future love Ellen as guest picker. We need to get her pumping LSU consistently likes she pumps the Saints.

Still is, since 89. For an actor in Hollywood this alone is enough to like him.

John Goodman is a great choice, but no one will ever top the Game Day when Brian Wilson was the host !!
