After spending five football seasons in the heart of SEC country, I have a few suggestions for my brethren. I think they will give you a great deal of peace — and I guarantee they will give your brethren a great deal of peace. And let me beat you to the punch by saying I have been accused of being “as bad as anyone,” so these points are as much for me as for you.
My retreat from sports has been well documented. I didn’t watch nearly as much football last year as in previous years, and I am sure I will watch even less this year. That’s not a value judgment. This is the value judgment coming up. Brace yourselves.
