Or are you serious?
Damn Vince Young got cut. I guess he meant the College Football Hall of Fame.
VY said he was going to be in the HoF several years ago.
Ohhhhh. Yeah, about that one, Vince . . .
I'd love to have this!
That's pretty haughty talk from the guy who lives where SEC fans go to vacation.
The good news is that he at least gets to play his first SEC game at home. It's a against Florida, which would have been tough a few years ago, but they're not exactly Florida right now.
If I'm honest, I dont think UW will win the game, but UW has recieving threats that will be difficult for LSU to match up with. I expect LSU D-line to shut down the run (especially off-tackle), but am hoping that our TEs having success across the middle will loosen up the inside run a bit as the games goes on. I don't see LSU passing all that much (for matchup reasons as well as overall scheme). Should keep the game close.
I have a question re: UW. Is it common for fans to call them the "Dawgs?" I ask because I have a friend of a friend on Facebook who is a UW fan, and he keeps talking about the "Dawgs" upcoming season. Every time I see it I think, "I didn't know Xxxxx is a Georgia fan," only to realize he's stolen our word.
Now I can't help but wonder if there's some trend among football fans in the Pacific Northwest where they try to sound like Southerners when they talk about their team.
I don't think Upper-Left-Coasters can pull off the Southern Sound without having a few teeth pulled.
Yes, UW fans call UW the Dawgs. Been doing it for as long as I can remember. UW has actually been playing football for longer than UGA (1889 vs. 1892) but UGA associated with a dog mascot earlier (1920 vs. 1923). As for who started using "Dawgs" earlier, I dunno.
He'll always have his 2 Rose Bowls, be a legend in Texas and have millions of dollars. He's lived a good life it's just unfortunate that it peaked in college.
Yeah, he will always be legend to me - Good Lord, yes.
I seriously doubt he'll always have millions of dollars....
Jeez, I was just checking the interwebz and some jackass Sports Fortune Teller is calling for an upset of the Texas A&M - La. Tech game.
That hurts, man. Really hurts.
In other news I ventured out into the world and ran into a few Aggies wearing A&M/SEC themed caps and shirts. Wonder how long THAT's going to last.
