RANDOM SUNDAY FOOTBALL THOUGHT: This country desperately needs intercollegiate arena football as a spring sport. I mean the pageantry alone of the SEC schools would be tremendous. And it would give them and other football-first schools something for their players to do in the spring, or a place to work out their junior and/or marginal players, or provide another revenue stream. You don't think Alabama fans would sell out some basketball arena five times to see minor football with the Crimson Tide label? I think they would!

Idly I also wonder if arena football is significantly cheaper than outdoor football, and if this might be a way of getting universities who dropped their football programs as they got too expensive back into the sport. A world without any kind of Hofstra football is not a world I like living in.
