Ahh football. Whether you follow the NFL, college or the Central Region, the beginning of the football season brings the promise of cooler weather, the start of a new school year and the hope of a winning a championship!

  • What about home field advantage?
  • Why don’t coaches “go for it” on 4th downs?
