I've bled scarlet and gray since I was four years old. I had decided to go there for college by the time I was five. Now part of the class of 2020, I'm living the dream as a journalism major, thanks in large part to Eleven Warriors, where I started posting blogs during my senior year of football in high school and haven't stopped writing since. Played the best two positions in football in high school... nose guard and offensive guard.

If Dre'mont is as good as they've been saying, he could eat up double teams on the inside for those runs and all you would need is a solid nose tackle to not get moved off the ball and allow this insanely athletic linebacking core to run downhill.

Most teams have only a few of their starting front seven be elite-level players. We have the potential for six of our seven to be on that level. 

This front seven could be the best we've had in the Meyer era, and that's saying something looking over the past few years and the defenses we've had.

I actually moved back home today after completing my first year of college (more on that tomorrow). But the craziest night I re-call has been dubbed the "Lyft from heaven night" by my comrades and I.

We arrived at a block party around 11 on a Saturday night following a day-time football game (I forget which one). I don't drink, but most of the group I was with (comprised of people from around my floor) had pre-gamed. None to the extent of my roommates from Virginia and New York though.

So I start hanging out and socializing with people at the party. After awhile, I go to check on the Virginia roommate, who is REALLY bad at this point. Dude ends up crying on my leather jacket because he quote "almost did cocaine." After awhile of trying to make sure he was alright, I get a text from one of my suitemates in our group chat, addressed to my Cincy roommate about his sister, who was in a situation I can't go into much detail about... but I ran up with the cincy roommate to help break that up. I come back down to this girl who was a friend of someone that lives on my floor, talking about how she wanted to hook up with this guy she just met even though he had a girlfriend, which I thought was pretty weird so I left that conversation pretty quickly.

Virginia roommate is now voiding most of his body weight onto the grass next to the lot, my immediate thought is "he could use some water". I ran back in to get him some as some other friends were calling a Lyft for him (pretty much the same thing as Uber). I ran back out with the water as the Lyft was arriving... two car lengths behind were police cars with lights flashing. Everyone scatters. My friends loaded Virginia roommate in the car which drove off as the cops were exiting their vehicles, and I made sure to clear out once the car drove off. If that Lyft had arrived a minute later, Virginia roommate probably gets an underage... henceforth, the night is now called The Lyft from Heaven night. 

All this went down over the course of about three hours, and with everyone scattered I wound up with a suitemate and his now girlfriend walking back towards her dorm, and after he decided to stay there I walked home at 2:30 A.M.

Prior to today, the only BTO song I knew was this:

B-b-b-baby you just ain't seen n-n-n-n-nothin' yet.

Was always fun to try to add as many b's and n's as you could to that line when singing with friends, or my dad for that matter.

The latter quote I always found funny, since technically you could say the same about running the ball: You could either gain yards, lose yards, or fumble.

This is one of my favorite lessons from Woody, probably can pull a quote or two from here:

Favorite singular quote from Woody that I've heard is probably "Nothing that comes easy is worth a dime."

Our after proms always went until four or five in the morning... the school would always have some great decorations, inflatables, giant hamster ball races, card tables, 3-D twister, and plenty of good food. Best part of prom.
