Jim Harris: A Flip Of A Switch, And Then We're Gone

by Jim Harris 11/2/2012 12:32 pm

As I try to conjure the right words, and to say it all within the confines of the average reader’s attention span, the clock ticks ever so closer to this site’s final moments. I look at that clock like the condemned prisoner, knowing that they’ll flip the switch at 11:59 p.m. They’ll flip the switch off, cutting the current, however; and I’m only sweating getting this in by afternoon deadline, and knowing I’ll have another day, at maybe another website, to ply my trade. The last time I went through this, they (you know who “they” are) cut the power to the computers before we at the Arkansas Gazette had a chance to say any last words. It’s the winds of October and now early November that ever remind me of those strange days in 1991.

SEC Notebook/Power Poll: Alabama-LSU Showdown Highlights Weekend; East Is A Jumble

by Jim Harris 10/31/2012 3:24 pm

Last year, it appeared the whole world was watching (except for the fans focused on Arkansas and South Carolina) when No. 2 Alabama played host to No. 1 LSU in Tuscaloosa in week 10 of the Southeastern Conference season. Neither team managed a touchdown, but LSU managed to escape with a 9-6 overtime victor, only to lose the 1 vs. 2 rematch in the BCS Championship Game 21-0 in January in New Orleans. Though 'Bama is No. 1 and LSU is in the top 5, this Saturday night's matchup in Baton Rouge doesn't seem to be generating the incredible buzz of the last regular-season game — to be sure, even Ali-Frazier III didn't have the same impact worldwide that Ali-Frazier I did 40-something years ago — it's still THE game of the day in college football. So important is it to CBS this time that the network made sure no other SEC game would be played at night. Instead fans have the unusual scheduling of six SEC games kicking off before noon.

by Chris Bahn 10/28/2012 7:38 am
