    one of the best hours of network TV not involving folks stuck on an island or a ticking clock that I have seen in quite some time.

    Watched the pilot the other day and I enjoyed it. Got home in time to see Street get injured. Gotta love the music, camera angles, and just the feel of the show. At first I was sort of surprised NBC through that much into the pilot (star QB getting hurt, backup saving the day...) but I guess thats what should be done in pilot, it got me wanting more and I'll def watch it when I can.

    Either the NYTimes of the WashPost had a decent review of the show and wrote that the hairstyles on the show were not likely seen west of manhatten, let alone west of Dallas. Thought about that whiloe watching the show, pretty accurate.
    Good show. Hot HS Girls are always worth tuning in for.

    The music's one of the best parts -- same band that scored the movie, Explosions in the Sky, straight out of the Permian Basin.

    Great pilot but whoever is advising them on the football scenes needs to be fired. Kid goes out of bounds late in the game yet the clock starts when the chains are set?

    Then, they've got the ball on the opponent's 20, QB drops back, scrambles back even farther, maybe 25 yards at most, heaves the ball downfield and it's caught at the 30? Gimme a break.

    Mack Brown cameo was funny as hell.

    The blonde who is the girlfriend of the redneck fullback is smoking hot. According to the previews of next week, she gets it done with the brother at tailback. That's always going to promote team unity.

    Don't think a kid in real life would show up for an interview smelling like beer. And the TV reporter wouldn't ask him that question straight out -- he'd go with it on the air.

    There isn't a single high school coach who looks like a young Cary Grant.

    Mack Brown's cameo was just as good as the previews made it seem. This show looks really, really good.

    Spent the first half of the show pumping up the stud QB and then they have him break his neck in the first episode?
    Little quick, wasn't it?

    Starting the clock after the kid went OB pissed me off. And has the other team's coach ever heard of a cover 3?

    Other than that, pretty solid. Slightly predictable, but pretty solid.

    I liked the good old days, when the clock stopped when you went OB
