In theory, smashing a cinder block wall to kick off the college football season is pretty cool. One, two, three swings, the wall collapses, and the team runs onto the field as everyone cheers. We learned yesterday that in reality, it is not that cool.
Eastern Michigan's team eventually got tired of taking swings as their players wasted adrenaline in the tunnel, so they resorted to kicking over the wall. Good enough.
