Alabama and Florida are in a staredown over which football team's Sept. 2 season opener will be televised, according to Roll Bama Roll
, which you should read regularly if you care at all about Crimson Tide sports. The prize for the winner: not appearing on the broadcast formerly known as the Jefferson-Pilot game of the week. That's right: Both teams are desperate to avoid TV coverage
, because the kickoff would have to be at 11:30 a.m. Central time and, well, the South is ridiculously hot at that time of day in early September, and c'mon, it's only a regional broadcast anyway.
Verily am I amused.
