So Dad called us to say today. "Go and see 'The Blind Side' - Mum and I have just come from seeing it, and I had tears in my eyes," he said.

That got us thinking. First of all, we loved "Friday Night Lights" , Texas-based football. The TV series was pretty damned good, too.

There is no better mix out there than high school, insanely hot girls, teen drama, and sports. And sorry...90210 doesn't cut it (even their surfing team)!!

Anyway, we couldn't stop thinking about some programs that we'd like to see on DVD.

Here's a couple of ideas:

1) Where Did It All Go Wrong?

A History of Tennessee Football since 1998. The Vols have won not one, not two, but NO SEC Championships in 11 years, folks!

2) Defense: A Comedy

Highlights of Georgia's defensive efforts in the 2009 season.

In the sister series "Offense: A Comedy" we try and work out how Iowa beat Penn State 6-4 in 2004.

In the sister, sister series: "Offense, Offense: A Comedy", we talk through Penn State's offensive line, while in "Defense, Defense: A Comedy" we trace back to USC's defense in the second half of the 2009 season.

3)Β  Juiced

Just how did these high school players get to the sizes that they do for college? We (try to) answer.Β  For all Hollywood Producers out there: Don't bother asking Jose Canseco, who'll probably take the credit for this as well.

4) How An Alien Infiltrated Texas Football

A look into the life of Texas Longhorns quarterback legend, Colt McCoy. We also look at his girlfriend Rachel Glandorf, and ask this question: how?

5) You've Been Framed

If Gilbert Arenas is getting one month in jail and 400 hours community service for bringing the sort of arsenal that would make the Terminator happy into the locker room, then what would normal human beings like us get for bringing that sort of weaponry to the gym on 6th and 9th and threatening the guy who was quicker than us in the swimming pool?

6) Keeping Away From Death Row

SEC Coaches from the Past and Present talk to us about how they managed to keep their jobs (and their schools) from the death penalty despite recruiting violation after recruiting violation. Houdini would have been proud.

7)Β  The Runaways

The brutal story of how a passionate fan base up in Oregon looks for something better to do on Saturday afternoon between October and December thanks to the actions of a talented, dumb-ass quarterback.

8) They Hate Me

Pete Carroll on why returning to Los Angeles may not be the wisest idea right now. Lane Kiffin will also let you in on why he's not going back to Knoxville without an armored vehicle, and why anyone in their right mind would be an away fan at The Horseshoe (seriously! They throw buckeyes at you!)

9) Loyalty

Nick Satan (sorry, Saban) talks about how his cameo on "The Blind Side" was longer than some of his coaching tenures. And certainly longer than his promises. This story can be bought in bright orange. It's called: "Loyalty: The Lane Kiffin Story."

10) The Simpsons: At State College

Abe Simpson runs into Joe Paterno, and suddenly two 80-year old men are coaching the Nittany Lions;Β  Bart Simpson joins a fraternity, Homer out-drinks everyone at the pregame tailgate, Marge's hair gets called for pass interference, and Maggie Simpson says her first two words: "Hate....Michigan". We all applaud.
