Greg Hall, former Landmark writer whose weekly compilation of sports media sound bites--with some spicy editorial comments thrown in for good measure--was a popular feature in this newspaper for several years, is making a temporary comeback.
Hall will be penning four Off the Couch columns to be posted at plattecountylandmark.com over the next week, with the focus being on the big national showdown between Missouri and Kansas in college football. The teams will meet Saturday night at Arrowhead Stadium in a game with national title implications. Undefeated Kansas is currently ranked No. 2 in the nation while Missouri, with only one loss, is ranked No. 4 in the BCS ranking and No. 3 in some polls.
Three pre-game columns by Hall will appear at plattecountylandmark.com, with the first appearing on Wednesday, the second on Thanksgiving Day and a third on Friday. The game is on Saturday and Hall's post-game column will be posted on Monday.
