Lesson #1 - Feed the beast!
You don't tug on Superman's cape, you don't spit into the wind, you don't pull down the mask of the ol` Lone Ranger and you don't mess around with...
Urban... and the Undisputed National Champions hell bent on erasing the only blemish on an otherwise perfect season.
Oooh. Bad things are gonna happen to you tonight.
I know one thing, this kid will take nothing for granted and will work his butt off. And I think he will have a little extra motivation come Sparty week. ;-)
Gavin "Hayes" Cupp - This kid is instantly my favorite recruit this year. Ohio kid, named after Woody, a bit of an underdog... Oh yea. I'll lay money that this kid is going to end up being the next Zach Boren or John Simon.
According to Mark May there should have been 2 SECs in the championship.
We want to keep the SEC as an adversary, and we want them to at least keep claiming they are the best of the best. Because, as Woody was fond of saying, you need adversity to make yourself better. And we want to keep sticking it in their face when we beat the sh*t out of their "best" team. It is the same reason we want meatchicken to be at least a respectable team again... so that when we vanquish them it actually means something. Today, beating TTUN is about as meaningful as beating Purdue... it's just another B10 win. I remember the 10 years war fondly and want that kind or rivalry back again - because if there is no risk of losing, The Game loses something.
Mark May is a useless tool, a troll, and a waste of air. He needs to be put down like you would a rabid dog. We don't want him infecting anyone else with his disease.
Damn Birm... after the Hurry up thread I look up and see Mr. Walker's picture and my heart jumped out of my chest! I don't find fault with your Hurry Up "tease" but for the sake of everyone's health, do not then follow it up with a picture and story of one of our most coveted recruits! That's just cruel.
Wanting Mr. Spence do well is something I am really praying for. Being that I was born at the Ohio State University Hospital (which automatically make me an OSU alum, right?) and an alum of Eastern Kentucky (Go Big E!) may have something to do with that, but I have also struggled with many of the same demons and know how hard it can be to overcome them. For his own sake - and because I hate to see anyone so young and talented throw away such opportunities - I hope he keeps fighting those demons and keeps his faith in Him, and himself.
Ramzy, I love your writing... but if I ever see that monstrosity of a picture again (you know which one), I will personally hunt you down and force you to have intimate relations with a *ichigan woman... with your eyes open... before her monthly bath!
I think Mr. Cupp will prove to be more than just a good football player. He has done what he needed to put himself in an environment that has a long history of nurturing and molding individuals into more than even they thought themselves capable of achieving.

Dragon, much like Honey Badger, don't care. Dragon will find you.
Yea... no matter how dangerous you believe yourself to be, teasing the Dragon is never advisable.
It's called Bill Davis Stadium, but perhaps we can upgrade it a bit with "Farmer's Field" at Bill Davis Stadium? Just a thought.
Meanwhile, in Jim Harbaugh's office...
Oh... it'll be renamed Blatz-burg that night. They think they have an advantage because they are at home. Well... revenge makes house calls!
They will probably pick USC @ Notre Dame, if for no other reason than just the tradition factor.
Ramzy... given yesterday's news, why don't you go ahead and spend all night tonight (FNL) away from the Internet as well. ;-)
Might be worth 2-3 commitments.
