On tomorrow on CBS Sports at 2. Dial, Square, Shelley, Tinker, and Kelly Johnson all playing. Joe Kines is an assistant on the other team as well.
Anyone in Montgomery should try to attend. Cramton Bowl was just renovated. It should be a good time.
Is this what used to be the old Blue/Gray game ??
Just set the DVR! Thanks for the heads up!
“Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, today is a gift of God, which is why we call it the present.”
Not exactly. Played in the same stadium, same city, and similar format.
Here is a little about the old game:
The format, unsurprisingly given the Classic's name, pitted players who attended college in the states of the former Confederacy, the "Grays," who wore white jerseys, against players who attended school in the northern half of the country, the "Blues," who wore blue jerseys, and also sometimes including players from western teams. Both teams wore gray pants. Only seniors played in this game, because it was their first venture into professional football, as they were paid for their participation.
The game had an interesting and somewhat checkered history. It was almost always the first major college all-star game of the year. For this reason, it was difficult to get some of the truly big-name collegiate stars, because many of them were preparing at the same time for bowl games with their regular teams. Also, many potential players preferred to spend Christmas at home.
