The ice storm of 2013 will go down as one of the more disruptive weather happenings in recent memory.
When the storm was making its way toward the state last week, the Arkansas Activities Association made the right decision in postponing all of the high school football playoffs for a week.
Providing the weather stays calm this week, the playoffs will resume on Friday for the 4A, 3A and 2A classifications and conclude for the 7A, 6A and 5A classifications.
Well, the college football regular season is over and we now move on to the bowl season.
With the exception of one or two games, I canâ€™t say Iâ€™m too excited about the matchups.
Of course the main event of the bowl season this year, which thankfully is the final year of the Bowl Championship Series, is the national championship game between the No. 1 Florida State Seminoles (13-0) and the No. 2 Auburn Tigers (12-1).
I am actually dreading this game more than I am anticipating it.
