Football Opener Moved to Sunday

The Dead Guy SECAnalyst IJune 2, 2016

Per Chris Low's SEC blog, the 2009 football season opener against Memphis has been moved to Sunday, September 5 at 3:30 on ESPN.

That gives Rebel fans an extra day to stock up on Kevlar and prepare to have profanities tossed their way by dolts clad in wife beaters and cut-off jorts, and if they're lucky, even the Memphis head coach.

This series can't end soon enough.

Do we really need a mid-afternoon kickoff in early September? Gonna be a wee bit toasty methinks.

Let's just hope it's not as hot as it was at the 3-0 game in 1999.
