I notice some joined this conversation in 2005, 2006 and some later. We have lost some of our friends and others perhaps just moved on. This is ten years we have been friends. We have all changed and our commentaries are reflections of our lives. Like you all, I don't go to as many games. I went to a high school game and left early because I was cold....that would have not happened ten years ago.
We watched football this Thanksgiving with our families and like was expressed, they know more than I ever thought, certainly more than I. The salient comment, "Dad, you can't run every play straight up the middle...and we don't have fullbacks anymore.....we don't?
As I age it is hard to tell if I am inspired by reasoned passion or arthritic knees; most likely it is arthritic reasoning.

The cool thing about where I live is I can be in a number of stadiums within a two hour drive. Three hours away if I get crazy. Most are ACC stadiums, and I just enjoy the game. UVA, Virginia Tech, Duke, North Carolina, North Carolina State, Appalachian State, East Carolina, Wake Forest, etc. are all within 3 hours from me. I go just to enjoy the game, the crowd, the tailgating. I went to a small college, so I really don't have alumni status ties to the FBS schools. I have been a Michigan fan since I was little (family said I loved the helmets when I was a child). I have never had season tickets (probably couldn't afford them anyway), but I have been to every stadium listed above. I used to enjoy all the bowl games, and knew every conference member, coach, stadium name, etc. but I have two kids now, a great 2nd wife (after first wife decided that me and the kids wasn't in her life plan anymore). I still watch the games, but I realize that other things come first at times. At times, I was watching Gameday until the late games. Now, I am okay with the highlights, the parts of games I catch during the day, and the night games.

Michigan and Stanford still have fullbacks. :lol: We aren't completely irrelevent.

I wonder just "what is a fullback, now a days ?"....

FSU runs a full back (241 pound Stephenson and 226 pound Vickers) but also runs a two tailback set with 232 lb TB Jacques Patrick who sometimes lead blocks and sometimes receives the ball.

Patrick is a 232 pound TB...and Vickers is a 226 pound FB. I dunno.

I think Patrick is going to be the next stud, after Freeman, Williams, and Cook.

This made me chuckle.
They’re either going to run the ball here or their going to pass it.
