It says "I'm a Tiger, Hear me Roaf."  Hmmm..."roaf" is an interesting word choice.
That program cover reminds me of another picture I saw recently...

Yeah, I remember that dude. Big lineman who played for KC I think (?). Really good too.  I would not use "roaf" in the pejorative in his presence.

Blasphemy!! Willie was and always will be a New Orleans Saint. The KC gig was just a thing.

An angry fan...rooting for an angry team...led by angry coaches

After NO traded him because they thought he was injury prone and washed up! He spent another 4 very productive seasons in KC and was a Pro bowler each of those years.
He was very good for both teams!

I saw a UFO told me to have a goodyear!

Having to play for the Chiefs is the reason he retired.

In jest that still hurts!
FYI, when he retired, KC was leading the West division and beating their rivals. After him, it all went downhill. Actually, everything changed after most of the Oline left that year or the next. Last 4 years have been all about getting a good line together, which has been a failure.
That and putting all their eggs in the hands of a mentally unstable former Penn State RB (Larry Johnson). Ever since then, just bad football.
With all the stories I've been reading, supposedly it has been a big difference between when Cassel was at KC last year and this year with Alex. They are saying he is doing leadership stuff that they didn't see before. I'm sure that all comes from Urban!

The offseason begins when your season ends. Even then there are no days off.

If it wasn't for Brandon Graham, Zoltan Mesko probably would appeared on a similar Michigan publication in 2009.

Anyone remember the "Mike Nugent for Heisman" campaign that sprouted up around campus while he was here?  I was never sure whether to participate in the fun or be saddened that our kicker was one of the most popular guys on the team.

Yeti's have feelings too.

Tom sure looks hornsey.  Most punters are in a perpetual state of hornsey-ness.

Now Memphis knows how to recruit! Who needs linebackers when you are stacked at P?? Just bought my season tix.

Hornsey must have won a popularity contest to get the cover shoot.

Punters have that moxie.

And Jim Tressel sheds a tear of immense joy. He has never been happier.

With a name like Hornsey... Hey, at least he gets to take his frustrations out on a football!
Did anyone ever tell him that the football team has a gym? Never understood that about kickers....

Somewhere out there Jim Tressel is beaming with pride as he surfs 11W and sees this.

Hey, at least he looks like an ANGRY punter!

Look at the arms on this guy! He must be able to bench... the bar.

Yeah, is this to try and scare any of the other teams.  "Watch out or we will have our scrawny punter punt the ball to you." 
Alrightly then!
