    OK, I've been Tivo'ing "Coach" lately -- and I forgot just how much I used to love that show. I just think it's got everything -- the perfect cast, the perfect storylines, a nice mix between humor, seriousness, and even, sometimes ... a dose of drama (when Hayden knew of a former player who took steroids) ...

    How many of you were/are huge fans of Coach?

    Any specific memories?

    I just love the team name: the Minnesota State Screamin' Eagles. They used the Gophers' colors, and they actually pulled it off without it sounding "too fake." As a kid watching the show, I actually thought they were a part of the Big 10 8)

    I loved the realism of it. D-I head coach with an office seemingly in the basement. The meeting room barely fits 15 guys. Only two assistants, both of whom are practically retarded. I can't believe Bo Whitley would sign with that shit show.

    The Gophers don't have purple in their uniforms.

    And then when Hayden actually gets a big office with a real team, Bo stiffs him. I always thought of Bo as a Michael Bishop-type who wouldn't have done anything in the pros anyways.

    That wife was a hottie, especially for her age. That's about all I can think that show had going for it.

    I'm still amazed the show lasted beyond a couple of episodes.

    Ah, yes, Shelley Fabares, three-time co-star of Elvis, who coincidentally knocked her hit single "Johnny Angel," out of the No. 1 spot on the Billboard Hot 100 (Elvis' song was "Good Luck Charm").

    Eight seasons, actually. And Hayden's daughter Kelly (Clare Carey) was extremely hot too. :)

    A good, quality show, I thought, when it was based in college.

    And a show which absolutely jumped the shark the day Hayden Fox went pro.

    Thought it jumped the shark when he won a national title. After that, it went down hill with his agent, flirting with the pros....

    That actually may be more accurate.

    Luther had a great career when he moved on to Marshall. ....
