If a team cannot win 2/3 of its 12 games then it needs to stay at home during the holidays.
    Exactly how in feel. Of course it's good to be there, but it just doesn't feel right. It's like going to church and you just left the club...

    I remember having to watch the Blue-Gray Game on Christmas Day as a child. I hated my great uncle because of that! LOL! Now, I would probably drive to Montgomery to watch it in person!

    I loved the game, but being the oldest boy in my family, I missed out on a lot when you're almost totally surrounded by women who were not football fans.

    IIRC the Blue always won because all of the Alabama, auburn, UT, UGA and LSU players were in bowl games and could not participate. The sponsor for years was Kelley Tires.

    The real culprit was the proliferation of bowl games. As hen number of bowls grew, fewer and fewer players were available...

    Break down of the victories since the game began in 1939:

    Gray = 33 victories
    Blue = 29 victories

    I love the bowl games. We spend a lot of time at deer camp this time of year and it's great to have a ball game on as background, if nothing else.

    In today's hypersensitive PC world the Blue and Gray game would have to change it's name anyway.

    In an ironic twist that only happens a few times in one's entire life - I'm going to the Liberty Bowl tomorrow to watch the powerhouse Iowa State Cyclones take on the Tulsa Golden Hurricanes. Free tix with a good friend and I've nothing else to do, so I'm off to watch mediocre football at its worst, err, best!
