    P1: The flying Nunn.

    But seriously. Good thing they have an extra set of gear in the locker room. And cleats. And a fax machine to get that signed permission slip.

    This strip has been almost insulting to football in recent years. Last year, Terry Gallagher comes over from Ireland and turns into a solid defensive back almost overnight. Now Tip Nunn is about to join the team with no experience that we know of, and he’ll probably become a star. Even a good athlete is going to need some sort of learning process in a new sport. It just isn’t that easy.

    Hey you have to have three weeks of practice to play HS football in a lot of states.

    Nunn, should you get hurt, as seems to be rage in MILFord;
    1-800- knox-foley! You’ll soon own the school.

    When I was on the high school track team the coach wanted to win one match so badly that he had a kid who smoked and never was on the team come to that one meet. The kid won his event, threw up, and then went home. Wonder what the coach paid him…….

    And….problem solved. A rash of injuries solved by getting one new wide receiver. Playdowns here we come!

    That leap in P1 is Nunn jumping over a shark tank to catch the ball.

    Nunn needs to work on his trash talk.

    I agree, chiphilton. This goes beyond ridiculous. The continual additions of “transfers” and other assorted characters in the middle of seasons is completely unrealistic.

    P1: The flying Nunn.

    Will his helmet be in the shape of that weird-looking wimple that Sister Bertrille (Sally Field) wore on the show?

    In P3, Number 77 proves to be too tall for Tip to leapfrog over.

    Would be appropriate for The Monday Night Countdown guys to have Tipperello in their “Jacked Up” segment.
