It’s Only a Flat Tire, But There Be Tigers Lurking

Flat tires are a bitch. I don’t care how adept you are at mechanical handiwork, changing it, especially when you have a destination in sight, someplace ya really wanna get to, is a pure pain in the ass.

Worse, yet, is when ya pull out your tire iron, jack and spare, get it all laid out…

And the very first freakin’ lug nut you tackle, you discover it has been rounded off by some heavy with a pneumatic wrench from your last rotation.

At this point, you either quit and call AAA, or rely on experience. Hey, whaddaya know? You can make a shim from anything you have laying around your ride.

The adjustments work on the damaged lug, and so does the jack. The spare has air and tread, due to more than a modicum of diligence, and there ya go.

Back on the road you can pass that Mack truck ahead!

Or take the train. Yes. For this one, definately take the train. Get the heavy equipment out (’cause you’ll need it) Get that sucka right, and roll. Bring John Henry, too…Hell, bring John Henry the horse along, as well.

    Trading td’ s for fg’ s for the rest of the game will work for the Pack.

    Crowd is great. We’re playing great. We gotta play every last remaining minute great.

    Dare I say this has all the potential in the world to be a program changing win.

    Still steaming about the lack of a PI call against Clemmons on Myers just inside the seven on our last drive..Yet they have called PI on us 3 or 4 times in the first half. The defender clearly hit Myers before the ball got there. And of course it led to ANOTHER missed FG by the Pack..Note to God: Please give us a kicker for Christmas..Please?

    Can anybody explain what defensive PI ? I thought both calls on NCSU DBs were obvious, but then absolutely no call on the similarly obvious one on Stateā€™s last drive. What am i too stupid to see?

    ^Didn’t see the Clemson player blatantly grab an arm or a fistful of jersey like our DBs did on each DPI call against us. IMO the only questionable DPI call against us was the first one, since it was arguable that the ball wasn’t catchable.

    Also would like to point out that playing aggressive man to man against a talented opponent necessitates some grabbing. I will exchange a few DPI penalties for no large pass plays, and that’s the situation so far.

    With our Defense…
    I’ll trade 2-3 PIs for 2-3 TDs every game…

    On the field… we don’t need to be worried ’bout that…
