Can a football season be dissected down to 4 plays? No. No one in their right mind would do such a thing. 1: USC- First play of the campaign is a 90 yard kickoff return for a TD. 2: ND- A blown non-call brings a pick-six kerfluffle, absolutely flipping the world upside down. 3: CU- […]
They Forgot the Sage!..Postgame Haikus For Wolven
Too many plays lost Coaches planned plays and players Wake made more to cost.
I Fear Not The House Of Deacon. But Just In Case…
There are places in this world that exhude a strange and negative energy…places of my youth, where certain turns in the road or hollows always had an unsettling aura as if they echoed deeper vortexes of a dark or foreboding universe… oft in broad daylight. The poet in me is most sensitive to these, but […]
I Absolutely Love a Good NE Chowda
Looks good, doesn’t it? Man, with the change of season…Hmmm. I like Fenway Park, too. I played there once in a Summer league All-Star game. …But ya wanna know what I really like? I like our boy Chops’ take on Saturday’s game in the Forum. Chops has always been a longtime, square up, dude. I’ll […]
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 […]
So, Ya Got a Visit To South Bend
” It’s a boy, Mrs. Dog! It’s boy!” Mrs. Dog smiled and drifted off. Drifted off into dreams of the boy wearing colors of blue and gold. It was pre-ordained. The boy grew, gathered with his leprechaun family, around the radio every autumn Saturday, and listened to the exploits of Lamonica, Hanratty and Theismann. Mr. […]
What Did Columbus Actually Say When Approaching Pittsburgh?
“Paisanos! We are in waters I ain’t seen in a long time!” Now, I am a student of history, and I’m pretty sure Chris never navigated the Allegheny, Monongahela and Ohio, but if he woulda, that, like many Wolfpackers, is what he’d have said. Trust me. Pretty sure he warned pilots about rocks along the […]
It Ain’t A Train Yet, But The Engine Looks Good…Combo Game Blog. Seriously, Who Uses That Nomer?
See that cowcatcher, there? It kinda’ reminds me of State’s front 7 v. FSU, last Saturday. Which, btw, didn’t get its full, head-cocked, attention. ( It should have.) Anyway, I saw that the Syracuse DL has 27 tackles for loss through 4. That prompted a time wasting search of film to discover, that they treated […]
Paladin’s Coming To Town? Why? Who’s In Trouble Game Thread.
Believe me. When I hear that dude is riding in, I’m headed to the nearest church! Don’t even care if the roof trembles and shakes at my presence, it’s safer than the saloon. ( What? Waddaya mean it’s not THAT Paladin? Well…ok. What’s the difference? Somebody is apparently in trouble, just the same. ) The […]
Pssst…Redzone Offense. He’s 6’4″ Game Day Thread.
Can ya at least show me that y’all are workin’ on that fade thingy?
