While praising Jimmy Johnson on Instagram, “I’ve learned though in [sic] life is we remember those who make us better.” I agree with that, but one would also have to realize those who make us better are not always our friends or cohorts, often they are those we loath or fight against.
One major reason college football has an attendance problem is that their games are too damn long. Not only are the games too damn long, but their season is too damn on.

As Ward tells it, the issue became such a concern for ABC that the network had him go see a doctor, who prescribed pills “to shrink me up.”
