You know about Havard Rugland — the Norwegian dude who became famous on YouTube by kicking footballs from the beach into the ocean. Oh, and also through some goalposts from rather difficult distances.

We suspect that some guys aren’t in tip top shape due to the two-month layoff, and this does not make special teams coordinator Kerry Coombs very happy.

Alan Moore is 61 years old. When you get to be that age, there’s a good chance you’ve seen a lot, and Moore has: he’s a Vietnam veteran, for one thing. But even after having children, and then having grandchildren, there was something he hadn’t seen for himself: the college life. And he had the itch for it. Oh, and he also had the itch to play football while doing it.
