I’m not sure where you live, but I’m in the FL panhandle and the weather is super HOT right now – beginning of October and I saw 100 degrees in the car this weekend. Regardless of where you are and what your weather is like, I want to know if you’re a TRUE FAN or a FAIR WEATHER fan?! I’ve been blown away lately at … Continue reading TRUE Fan or FAIR Weather?
Finally, after months, all the college football fans got their fix a few days ago during kickoff weekend with Week 1 (post Week Zero) of NCAA College Football. If you’re not a true fan you won’t understand, but for those of you who do, you can relate to the feeling I experienced leading up to that day…. chill bumps, hair standing up on my arms and … Continue reading Not Panicking with Hurricane Season – Mild Gusts from Week 1
Head Coaches in the Power 5 conferences are constantly dissected, but if you’re at the helm of a dynasty program with yearly expectations of a National Championship, you can go from the PENTHOUSE to the OUTHOUSE in a short period of time! A mere three weeks ago, Coach Les Miles (a.k.a. Mad Hatter) and LSU were #2 in the country according to the College Football … Continue reading PENTHOUSE? OUTHOUSE? You Make the Call
Who doesn’t like cupcakes?! Actually, I don’t, but I’m not referring to a melt-in-your-mouth cake topped and decorated with at least 3″ of pure sugar, baked in a paper cup. The ‘cupcake’ I’m referring to is what college football defines as a very weak opponent; one that typically yields an easy victory. Most often these cupcakes travel to the dominant team’s home field and take … Continue reading Care for a Cupcake?
I’m not a morning person and I don’t typically wake up early (on purpose or otherwise). I’m keenly aware that football season must be upon us after waking up at 4:21 this morning thinking about the whole dilemma of two Quarterbacks and numerous coaches as of last week that STILL don’t know who they’re going to name as their starting QB. This is mind-blowing to … Continue reading Two Days and Two QB’s
While the 2015 College Football Season is more than six months away, it could be significantly impacted by what happens tomorrow. Yep, February 4th is a Signature Day! For the 10th straight year ESPNU will host a marathon covering who’s going where… which may ultimately lead to Who’s In for this year’s CFP. If you’re a REAL SPORTS fan, you will know this is a … Continue reading Hat’s Off to College Football
You can take the coach out of the game, but you can’t take the game out of the coach. My inspiration for A Coach’s Daughter is from my mom, Georgia Carol Lackey Walker, a.k.a. Coach Walker. She’s also affectionately known by family and friends as simply, “G.” In a few hours we will see the first NCAA CFP National Championship game so I thought it … Continue reading She’s The Coach, I’m Her Daughter
Last summer I attempted the Heisman pose in heels for A Coach’s Daughter (photos courtesy of Ray Wishart). Recently, Desmond Howard, THE master of the Heisman pose himself, tweeted this promo for the Cheez-It Sweepstakes. This was quite an accomplishment considering I was wearing 6″ heels – I can’t even walk in heels, period. It probably wasn’t a big deal to him or anyone else, … Continue reading Heisman in Heels – Thanks Desmond!
I’m not a bandwagon fan – I actually went to college at Mississippi State – SEC – specifically, the SEC West. If you’re a true sports fan, you’re objective. Having said that, the SEC naysayers were RIGHT! We sucked it up in the bowl games – the SEC West dropped the ball as a whole; no pun intended. ‘How the West was won’ consisted of … Continue reading SEC West Bowled a Strike-OUT!
I’m not a bandwagon fan – I actually went to college at Mississippi State – in the SEC – namely, the SEC West. If you’re a true sports fan, you’re objective. Having said that, the SEC naysayers were RIGHT! We sucked it up in the bowl games and in addition to that, the SEC West dropped the ball, no pun intended. ‘How the West was … Continue reading SEC West Bowled a Strike-OUT!
