I Need Football Columnists!

Of course, no blog about Alabama would be complete without thoroughly covering football season. It's coming quickly, and those obsessed with it are already knee deep in preparations!! (I just blogged about my husband's preparations today.)

So, it's time to prepare Alabama Bloggers for Football too. I think that there is enough interest to have multiple columnists for the football season. That way we will get as many perspectives and different ways that football is celebrated as possible.

There can be two types of posts: Preview posts and Review posts. Preview posts will be Friday afternoon posts - they can talk about the game(s) coming up, make predictions of the outcome(s), invite readers to make their predictions (maybe I can even rustle up some prizes for the winners!!), and in general prepare for the next day.

Review posts will be Sunday or Monday posts - this will be your chance to show off how YOU tailgate, how YOU experience the games, and the adventures you had on Football Saturday. Also, you get the opportunity to spout your opinion on the games themselves.

You can either write completely about Alabama football, completely about Auburn football, or a little of both - whatever you are comfortable with.

So, if you would like to write for the football season, pick a game or multiple games, and let me know if you would like to write a preview post or a review post. And be sure to let me know if you're writing for the Crimson Tide, the Tigers, both, or another school in the state!

Roll Tide!! I'll cover a Bama game.... but not the Iron Bowl. Too much pressure!!! Haha!

Ashley said...

Oh - and I definitely want to do a REVIEW so that you can see our football house parties!

Ashley said...

Sorry... these thoughts don't come all at once. Haha!! How about VA Tech? I know we'll do it big!

I would be willing to do a post game review of Alabama's games and possibly the biggest football news of the weekend, more of an analysis column, if you're interested. I'll do that with my coworkers Monday anyway. :)

I'll take any Auburn game, but prefer the AU/UA game. I am an Auburn grad and hubs is a HUGE Alabama fan - yes, we are a mixed marriage. Should make for some interesting bloggy commentary.....

Rachel said...

I think to start off the season you should do a blog hop/carnival thing at let people post about their traditions and teams to get everyone ready for kick-off.
