An Important Football Question Asked Here

Forget about that USC-UCLA score from last night, here’s an important question: Which football game did you own as a kid?

Or is there one missing that you played? I was a See-Action participant myself.

  1. Tudor for me. I ran the “everyone run in circles” offense. So times we would run the surprise “go the opposite way” offense. But for sure the best offense was the “pile up in the middle for 45 seconds” offense.

    1. We employed the lineman vs LB’s with outstretched hands doing the ring around the rosie technique. Great blocking style–if the RB would only hit the hole and go for paydirt. Usually, the guy with the felt ball would cut to the sidelines for zero gain.

    2. Tudor and foto electric football for me. Played them by myself, with anybody that would join, the dog, didn’t matter.

      I had the old NFC and AFC West teams for Tudor along with whomever was the Super Bowl teams from the year before.

      While playing foto electric football, never, ever run the quick hitter. You will never gain more than a yard.

    1. If USC blows this Utah game something punitive needs to happen to Enfield…..

      1. Ha! I guess we should look at bright side: We don’t have to worry about where we would have been seeded…..

      2. David Letterman bombed out on the Oscars & had the sense to never come back. George Clooney cancelled his 2 picture deal with Warner Brothers after Batman Forever.

    2. strat-o-matic was the thinking man’s game.
      Brilliant.

      In strat-o-matic baseball, I put Dave “kong” Kingman leadoff. Either a strikeout or homerun (usually the former).

      1. Well, Bohn can’t really ask Enfield, “What happened to this team? They seemed to be flying SO high until I met with them!”
        As for Pudly: He can’t be blamed for not seeing this coming. I mean, fuck, NO ONE really saw this kind of collapse in the works. As you pointed out, it’s one thing to lose a game in the last 3 seconds by a point or two —but our guys are getting their ass kicked. It’s almost like they’ve given up on going anywhere this year.
        I’ll tell ya one thing, though. I think this losing streak is gonna seal UCLA’s fate. All the pressure is off the Trojans.

    COULDN’T DISAGREE MORE. HARD TO WIN ON THE ROAD.

    I AM SUPPORTING THIS TEAM.

    THANKS ENFIELD.

    THIS COACH IS BETTER THAN ONEIL, RAVELING, CANTU ETC.

    1. Problem is, BT, there’s no homefield advantage during COVID.
      No undergrads in the stands heckling a shooter or a visiting player on the FT line, etc.

      Enfield’s teams are perpetually horrible on the road, and he knows it.

    Yes, Indiana will host the tourney. Neutral site for everyone except Hoosiers and Irish who are on the bubble.

    Coach needs to make adjustments and win last 2 games.

    FYI – many top 25 teams lost today. It happens. No chicken littles please.

    1. BT, even though SUCC is ranked 19th, they’re hardly a top 25 team. I mean they’ve faced exactly one top 25 team (the no longer ranked UCLA).

      Blowing 2 games vs unranked teams by a total of 28 points doesn’t help SUCC’s tournament invitation seeding prospects. The SS Andyain’twinning needs the bilge pumps pumping full throttle.

      1. Yeah —as much at pains me, I doubt we’re being viewed as a top 25 team by too many people at the moment……

  4. the Tudor one…
    hot/cold lost AGAIN? can’t hit free throws, so can’t hit contested shots either.
    No title, no tournaments either…always choke under pressure.
    LIKE SC FOOTBALL , RUN THE 3 UP FRONT AND 8 DROP AND ITS OVER…
    no running game AT ALL ’cause blocking is an unk commodity at sc.
