We're all geeked for football season. That's a given. Some teams begin practice next week. But before we get too caught up in which coach is on the hot seat, which players are overrated or why we detest a certain school, let's remember what's really important.

Former Alabama running back Siran Stacy reminded us all during his emotional sermon at an Alabama church last weekend.

You want perspective in life? Look no further than what Stacy has gone through and how he's persevered through a terrible tragedy.

I suggest we all think about Stacy and his family when we're stewing over a bitter loss this season.
