First Post

Welcome to my media empire. Okay, it's actually my attempt to learn more about college football history.

The goal of Old Ball is to force me to learn more about college football's great personalities, games, and to compare the latest great thing with the greatest thing of yesterday. I intend to have semi-regular posts about the aforementioned items and anything else of interest related to college football.

In the interest of full disclosure, I am a born and bred Michigan fan. As such, any list of coaching greats will start with Fielding Yost and end with Bo Schembechler, with no one in between. Also, because of my relative knowledge of the Big Ten and its teams, I expect to start down South in EES EEE CEE country. Maybe if I can discover how they run all those (FAKE) 4.1 40 yard dashes, I'll be able to end the Big Ten's current struggles in the BCS.

To living in the past...
