As if you needed a reminder…
I watched a little of Ole Miss’ spring game Saturday and noticed a couple of things. First, Jeremy Liggins may be even more enormous than billed. (He’s a freakin’ hulk, although he appeared more trim than the linked photo shows. I’m not sure he’s particularly mobile, but he looks like he could be a weapon in short yardage situations.)
Second, the game was more like a controlled scrimmage. I don’t mean that in the sense that all spring games tend to be glorified scrimmages. Ole Miss ditched the standard game format for some hybrid arrangement where the offenses operated out of set situations and one side was awarded a point for achieving a goal or for preventing one. Call me old-fashioned, but it lacked emotional impact, which is kinda what you’re inviting the fans for.
So call the traditional set up something else I’ll be grateful for on Saturday. Just like so many other things these days, I’ll take it as long as I can get it.
Who’s planning on going Saturday?
