    The MAD Magazine song parodies from my childhood obviously struck a very deep chord in my mental ... um, quick wit. What, me worry?

    "And later that night when the Victory Bell rang
    Could it be the shortness of breath and loss of smell they'd been feelin'?"

    We can do this, people.

    "Does any one know where the love of God goes
    When the fever, chills and nausea turn the minutes to hours?
    The searchers all say they'd have made Covid pay
    If they'd put fifteen more more days of mask wearin' behind 'er"

    In a musty newsroom in Det-roy-it they typed
    For each man on a Big-One-Gee roster
    COVID-19, it's said
    Never gives up her dead
    When the games of November come stealin'

    You really think an SEC school isn't going to make an exception for football? Even at Vandy?

    I think they will, which is why I think they've made an error with this definitive statement. They should have corrected it by now. If the possibility of football exists, the possibility of university-sponsored travel exists.

    Well, the NAIA's Frontier Conference has joined the crowd, changing their mind and pushing football to spring:

    Frontier Conference changes direction, will play football in the spring

    My son plays for Carroll College in Montana, and the five Montana schools were still planning to play each other home and away this fall. Their first practice was scheduled Saturday; so much for that! Personally, I'm not surprised and in some ways relieved, because I wasn't sure how it was going to work.

    I'm also not sure how playing in the spring is going to work, especially during the lovely March weather of Montana. I guess they'll cross that bridge when they get to it.

    The legend lives on from Huntsville on down
    Of the football coach they called Bear
    The Huskers it is said always support Big Red
    When hopes in November turn gloomy
    With four likely champions plus 60 more
    The Commodores always come up empty
    The pandemic sunk the schedule and the games couldn't be viewed
    They wished the election in November would come early
    The Wolverines were the pride of the Great Lakes side
    Coming back from some win in Wisconsin
    As the big programs go it was richer than most
    With a coach and good captain well seasoned
    With scandals galore, the Buckeyes came for more
    From a city south of Cleveland
    And later that night when the Monon bell rang
    Could it be the sanctions they'd been feelin'?
    ESPN talking heads made a tattle-tale sound
    And drunk fans over the railing
    And every man knew, as the captain did too,
    T'was the referees come stealin'
    The dawn came late and the tailgating had to wait
    When the gales of November came slashin'
    When afternoon came it was acid rain
    In the face of EPA deregulation
    When suppertime came, the PR man came into the box sayin'
    Fellas, we don't have the budget to feed ya
    At seven p.m., a the kickoff began and the coach said
    Fellas, it's been good to know ya
    The captain radioed to the sidelines
    But he got intercepted and the game was in peril
    And later that night as the ACC parties were outta sight
    Came the rambling wreck of Georgia Tech

    The players tried to take the field. The COVID-19 refused to yield.

    That’s all I’ve got.
