OK, geeks & football!
Intel is working with Riddell to come up with safer helmets. Very cool. Keeping our Saturday Heroes healthy is a good thing.
It is high time we got some some real tech into the game. How about a head's up display that keeps the QB informed down/distance/play clock/to's left?
Why are the Oregon Ducks holding up weird signs to call plays? OK, right, they are the Ducks, wierd is who they are and what they do. But why are normal teams doing silly hand signals to call plays? I mean, have you seen Josh Heuple doing the 3rd down disco over there? I swear he has the BeeGees on his headset. The players are probably spurting YESTERDAY'S milk from their noses. Why can't the OC have a matrix (see what I did there?) on a Minority Report like screen in front of him. Touching a play would send a simultaneous signal to the helmets of all involved players.
Maybe they already have this stuff. Maybe this is why Bob is soooo secretive. It might explain the A&M game.
Landry: Uh...coach.... I think you touched the wrong play, again.
Kevin Wilson: Just run the play!!
Landry: But we have 1st and goal from the 5. I don't think it is possible to do an onside kick.
Kevin Wilson: What???? Well, run it up the middle while I try to sort this out.
Wilson: We didn't score? Try this.
Landry: I think you got Venables, screen up. We can't send Broyles on a blitz.
Wilson: I hate this tech junk. Run it up the middle!
Landry: Coach, are you calling plays from the hotel bar again?
Wilson: Yeah. No reason to waste time hanging around in the stadium now I got this tablet thing.
Landry (mumbling): Oughta give him an etch-a-sketch, he wouldn't know the difference.
Wilson: What was that?
Landry: Nothing, we'll run it up the middle.
Wilson: Good! Did we win?
