50 Yard Line Faxed Menu. This goes back a ways, all the way back to the other blog, but when former head coach Tommy Tuberville snuck out of the 50 Yard Line in order to take the Cincinnati job, our very own Kenneth Washburn, a commentor at the time (KWash) decided to fax Tuberville the menu to the 50 Yard Line on Tuberville’s first National Signing Day at Cincy.

KWash will be on the Rob Breaux Show today at 9:37 a.m. Don’t be late. They run a mean clock. You may tune in to KKAM and there’s an app that you can download (link is there).
