Night workouts will stop. Books will not be read. Diets will worsen. Beer consumption will increase. Girlfriends and wives will be ignored. Lee Corso will become relevant again. Face painting will be acceptable - well, maybe not. Screaming at an 18-year old will be socially acceptable (more so). Wings will be eaten almost daily. Things called the Buckeyes and Horned Frogs will demand all our attention. Terms like 'spread offense', 'illegal touching' and 'Rich Rodriguez' will not be considered dirty.
Put down whatever it is you are doing for the next five months. Because tonight, at 7pm, football season begins. On TV you can catch South Carolina @ NC State at 7 and #16 Oregon @ #14 Boise State at 10pm, both on ESPN. Get excited.
