Thoughts of the State Game

I honestly thought LSU's offense would come out looking a little better than what they showed us last night. I don't believe we will have any issues with the defense, but we cannot rely on the defense to win us the big games. The offense needs to find out what is wrong and fix it quick. I'm not in panic mode, but we definately do not deserve the #2 ranking right now. Conventional wisdom says a team improves more in between it's first game and second one than at any time during the season. I hope we saw some jitters get banished last night. I don't want to be reading the blogs for the rest of the season with them saying, "Those corndogs are extremely overrated!"

Until we get through our first real test in V Tech, I will withold the judgement on the offense. I think the running backs namely Williams and Scott looked like they were ready to play some ball. I think as the season goes on, Flynn and the receivers will get in a rythm that will allow us to move the ball down the field. I just hope our offensive line can get it's act together, because without them playing well, we will be living through a long football season.

speaking of receivers:

One Word. "OUCH!"

This is an Oldie but Goodie!!!

It's Almost Here!

Oh, Happy Day! ! ! ! Footbaw is almost here! I am so pumped that LSU plays Thursday night on ESPN. I do not have to work Thursday, so I can spend all day preparing for the season opener. . .
Oh, Crap ! The little one's first soccer practice is Thursday evening at 6:00 P.M. Good thing that the coach likes to limit practice to about 1 hour. Otherwise, the little one would be skipping out of practice early so daddy can catch the kickoff for the 2007 Tiger Football Season! I'm just kidding, I probably wouldn't pull her from practice early. I'd be antsy the whole time though.
Anyway, I don't think I've looked forward to a football season nearly as much as this year. My wife is almost as excited about the season as I am.

Getting Closer


You have no idea how bad I am wanting some college football. I don't care if it is two directional schools battling it out for pork rinds, but man, I need some football. Fortunately, I have less than two weeks left for the LSU and Miss. State game.

I am really excited about this season, like everyone else in the college football community. I am, however a little more realistic about LSU's projected record. Don't get me wrong, I would love to see the Tigers go 12-0, go win the SEC Championship Game, go to New Orleans again and smack the ever living dog-mess out of any team that shows up for that game. I don't think it is going to happen that way. I believe there are two games out somewhere in the season that the Tigers are going to play like poo-poo and not be able to escape with a win. I think that their final record will end up another 10-2 season (not bad BTW). I just want Miles to continue building on the success that Saban helped build at LSU. Folks, we are in a 'Golden Age' of LSU football. We need to enjoy the wins while we can. One day, hopefully not soon, we will be in the middle of the pack in the SEC, with occasional impressive seasons. Let's not get bent out of shape if we don't go 12-0 in the regular season this year. Who knows, maybe it'll all work out the way we would like, but I'm just out for a solid performance by the Tigers this year.

Memo to the Hokies: You should have come to Tiger Stadium last time you were scheduled to. I think you had a better shot at beating the Tigers in that year. Man, ESPN gave the Tiger faithful 1 extra hour to 'prepare' for the game since kick-off is not until 8:15 P.M. on Sep. 8. I know I'll be putting that extra hour to good use!

I'm Still Around

Please don't judge me, but I am guilty of watching Big Brother on t.v. I also check out the live feed updates online while I am at work sometimes.

While I was browsing through the update boards last night I witnessed something that I did not think I would ever see. One of the contestants who calls himself Evil Dick, went off on a tirade that rivaled some of the most viscious and filth-laden monologues that I have witnessed here at work.

Man, this dude needs some serious help. Watch this clip for yourself:

If you've never watched Big Brother you probably will ask WTF. Well, let's just say that until football arrives, this is my only entertainment on t.v.

Yes, I'm still around.
