SAY WHAT? WEDNESDAYS
When compiling fun facts for "the fans" for Southern Livings The Official SEC Tailgating Cookbook, I had the opportunity to ask several football notables a few questions in regards to Southern food and game day in general. There wasn't room to run it all in the cookbook but I thought you may be interested in what they had to say...to you, the fans!

(Questions in reference to when he played football for The University of Alabama)
1. What is the most memorable SEC football game you've ever been to?
Marcell: I'd have to say any game against Florida. I hated Florida with a passion. That time we lost against them in the SEC Championship...man, those offensive linemen would talk a lot of junk on the field and try and get in your head.
2. What's your favorite Southern food?
Marcell: I love it all.Mac and cheese, cornbread, mashed potatoes...loaded. And fried chicken.
3. Sweet tea or unsweetened?
Marcell: Sweet! I have to have it at every meal, especially when I eat barbecue. That and lemonade. You know, everyone says they like Dreamland and it's ok and all, but I am a Full Moon fanatic. I just love it.
4. What is your favorite Southern saying?
Marcell: I've got you covered like a blanket. It's like when someone asks you to do something, you say, "Man, I've got you covered like a blanket." My godfather taught me that.
Check back on Wednesdays to learn more of what other game day notables had to say on the subject of tailgating, football, and Southern food faves.
