The Morning After: August, 19 2011

Do you realize that we will be solidly entrenched in football at this time in one month? The NFL will wrapping up their second weekend of action while Terrelle Pryor will still be suspended, but waiting patiently to replace Chad Henne. Tennessee will be celebrating in the Swamp. tOSU will be the champs of the IneligiBowl. Michigan will still be gayer than a bag of dicks. Finally, Michigan State will be campaigning Kirk Cousins for Heisman after he beats Notre Dame on the road. Why? Because MSU is just better, and Touchdown Jesus really doesn’t care about Notre Dame football.

Even baseball fans like myself, who have teams that are still in the race for the playoffs and division championships have to admit that we are ready for football. It is not that baseball is too long of a season, is going with only one major team sport for two months can get monotonous (/duffy’d). September-January trump any other time of the year. I don’t think I ever looked forward to the end of the school year like I do the start of football season.

If this is actually landing recruits, none of us stand a chance (Off the Bench)

Dodgeball? Eh, it was fun. Trampoline? For a few minutes it was a blast. Trampoline Dodgeball? Hell yes! (Sharapova’s Thigh)

Not too sure Miami players received these gifts from Nelvin Shapiro (Sports Pickle)

Everyone has been playing for second place in the Fulmer Cup (EDSBS)

Jim McMahon wore wearing sungalsses all the time cool before anyone else. He is also suing the NFL over concussions. (Pro Football Talk)

The New Giants Stadium is now going to be called MetLife Stadium, or Snoopy’s House. (NY Post)

“I hope not,” Tebow said, laughing. “That was a fun game, though. My only opportunity to play the Canes. Good memories from that game.” The nerve of Tebow. That’s just his holier-than-than religion talking!!!!!!!!! How dare he use that to justify kicking Miami’s ass. /nudges cycledan (Denver Post)

    also, even with the Gators lack of depth and scholarship players, I’m afraid our own attrition over the last 3 years will hamper us again this year trying to beat Florida, Georgia, South Cackalacky, etc.
