Sorry to be the one to say it! I dislike seeing breaking from tradition and seeing non-seniors in this game. I'm also the one that said "Oh you mean the Shrine Game" when now retired Coach Steve turner told me he was selected to coach in the Les Schwab Bowl. He responded with "that is the way I remember it.

I guess as we get older we have to remember like records are made to be broken, nothing ever stay the same.

Hope everyone has a great injury free game!
