BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) - The following is a commentary blog from FOX6 Sports Director Rick Karle:
It's hard to believe we're already into the year 2015. In fact, I'm just glad to still be around in the year 2015! As we all hope for health and happiness, I thought I'd let you in on what great moments in sports are about to come our way. Mark it down my friend, as this is what we will be witnessing this year:
Says Brady, "With the kind of money my wife is making, who needs this?" Tom and Gisele will never be heard from again as they retire to a country mansion in Napa Valley.
October: Nick Saban will hold a news conference on Halloween night (his 64th birthday) to announce that the 2016 season will be his last at Alabama. Crimson Tide fans will run into the streets causing chaos. Twitter will break, local news stations will interrupt programming for non-stop coverage, and ESPN's Tom Rinaldi will move into the Saban house simply to make continuous Iive coverage more feasible.
The SEC Network will send Paul Finebaum to the Kiffin house while Joe Tessitore reports from the Smart house. The news will be so big that local weather TV guys will only have time for their 7-day planning forecasts.
November: The Auburn Tigers will win the Iron Bowl 34-28 on the last play of the game. Jeremy Johnson will find Ricardo Louis down the middle of the field, as Louis hauls in the football that first bounces off a Bama defensive back. Says Louis after the game, "I can get used to plays like that." Still, the Tide heads to the SEC championship game with 2 SEC losses as once again SEC western division teams eat their own.
December: TCU's Trevone Boykin will win the Heisman trophy with Dak Prescott of Miss State finishing second and Nick Chubb of Georgia third. The Final Four playoff teams will be Alabama, Ohio State, TCU and Michigan State. The Buckeyes will win it all, making up for a championship game loss to Oregon nearly a year earlier. Urban Meyer will then become the nation's first college coach to make $10 million a year. Meanwhile, college athletes will continue to scrounge for a few bucks to see a movie.
Will it all come true? Ya never know. Hope you have a great 2015, and remember to stay in touch!
