08:01 AM ET 06.01 | Though tucked into a blog post, Cris Collinsworth added a note with his take on the lockout. "I am going to get my football fix this fall even if the lockout cancels the NFL season. Highlands High School's head coach Dale Mueller [winner of 4 straight state championships] called to ask if I would be interested in coaching wide receivers. I laughed. He said he was serious. The pay wasn't much [zero], but he promised I would have fun. My son Jac is one of the receivers on the team, and I had already polluted his brain with most of my receiving advice. But what the heck, the NFL will probably miss at least half of their season anyway, I agreed."

Ah, the great predictor has said it, so it must be true.

Collinsworth is probably right on this one...

A fist with a flag. There are so many things that could be said to drag this thread into the depths of depravity. It can be accomplished, I just need more coffee first.

All they have is the Tebow finger, the Harbaugh jaw and the Shanahan wet T-Shirt contest photos. None of those fit here...

If Collinsworth predicts half a season, then the CBA will get done and a full season will be played. This guy couldn't pick his nose.

No worries...just play into March!

Your right - forgot about "the Jenn Collection"...

Wow. Bring back "Fist Holding a Flag."

He's giving Al Davis some serious competition in the Dracula Look-Alike contest.

Well this makes me unsure about being tickets to the October games -maybe I'll stick to the December ones

Bruins game 7 would be a better bet.

I have to agree with you. Maybe not eight games, but not sixteen. This will get ugly.

and is Chris a owner?

And sadly, there'll be no basketball season picking up in November....

Good thing for NCAA Football.
