Next week, March Madness shall be upon us. Life as we know it comes to a complete standstill for The Tournament. It's something that the NCAA gets absolutely right.
As the old saying goes, you win some, you lose some.
They've played 47 Super Bowls, and no quarterback has won more than Terry Bradshaw's four.
Hey, Bud, I've got a question for you.
The Georgia GymDogs were on the beam Saturday night.
Thank you, Joe Flacco.
Chris Ault isn't going to the Super Bowl.
Why weren't they paying attention?
It is a new year, and while most everyone else's thoughts are on the new year and the resolutions they have made, my thoughts are mostly on Daytona and the start of the race season.
Bowl season is very exciting. Host cities want excitement to lure fans in droves, teams want it to build momentum for next season, and bowl-game sponsors want it to spike sales.
You read that headline correctly. Saturday's SEC Championship Game between No. 2 Alabama (11-1, 7-1) and No. 3 Georgia (11-1, 7-1) has been dubbed a "play-in" for the right to face media darling Notre Dame in the BCS national championship.
It's Thanksgiving and time to count our many blessings, SEC Banter style. Join me as we give thanks for the traditions that make the SEC the nation's finest football conference.
Alabama's loss to "Johnny Football" and his Texas A&M Aggies leaves the SEC with no undefeated teams and, according to the national experts, the SEC's streak of consecutive national titles will end at six.
It's been a while since we toured the conference from Alabama to Vanderbilt and, with no marquee matchups teed up for Saturday, let's do just that. Here's a rundown of this week's action, SEC Banter style.
"When I got to the 10 tee box, I still believed I could win the tournament, no doubt about it. I still thought that Bubba…"
On July 27, 1993, Jordan Spieth was born.
"Is that Bubba?" one patron asks another.
He walks up the 17th fairway at Augusta National uncomfortably upright, his hands clutched to both ends of a 7-iron that stretches toward the sky behind his head. He rocks the club from one hip to the other, bending his back side-to-side as he grimaces.
The Masters tournament is right around the corner, and when Jim Nantz of CBS welcomes us to Augusta National with his signature "Hello, friends" opening remark, he'll undoubtedly refer to the Masters as "a tradition unlike any other."
Tune the piano.
