If you don't have a football team in Texas, you're really not a town.

Very interesting. One team goes from 11 to 6, the other from 6 to 11.

When I started coaching 9 man, the field was 80 yards long. But eventually they moved it back to 100. It never made sense to me to shorten it in the first place as long as the field was narrower.
