SIDELINE OBSERVATIONS: Football has changed

Published: Tuesday, July 23, 2013 at 05:44 PM.

It seems as if Bielema is still living in the 1970s or 80s.

I still prefer a physical game of smash mouth football — in which a player can test his manhood with bone-jarring collisions — but I understand the game has changed.

Today's players love fast, high-power offenses. It's their game now, and I hope they will love it as much 30 years from now as they do today.

Love of the game and memories of time on the field stay with you forever.
