So I don’t have the connection with the crumbling old eyesore that, say, Edwin Pope has. But I do recognize college football loses another towering, sweaty slab of concrete with history and accompanying soul when Miami plays its home finale against Virginia tonight for another cookie cutter venue, and that by the start of next season nobody outside of South Florida (including me) will care much. At least the OB will get its due in its final, probably agonizing hour.
Hackneyed sentiment almost surely will not lead me to ESPN2 tonight, though, facing as it does the dual obstacles of Kirby Freeman and the entire outfit from Virginia, which would bury the ball for three hours and dig it up to kick a field goal if it could. Au revoir, OB. May the memories swelter on into eternity.
In other exciting televisual developments, technical kinks have been vanquished with my Yahoo! Sports account, apparently giving me access to live video of Lincoln Financial’s regional coverage of Arkansas-Tennessee and Mississippi State-Alabama. These second tier SEC games are much missed and have no regional equivalent in my new locale – picking them up again will feel like a little slice of home. A little grainy, hiccupping slice.
All games are in play all day in the comments below. Happy viewing.
