HATES-giving?

On the week we give thanks and celebrate Thanksgiving…. I find it interesting that this is the week where “hate and discontent” will be served throughout the college football world, along with a side of sweet potato pie of course. Not that we aren’t thankful, nothing could be further from the truth…. This isn’t about being “Thankful”…. It’s about your “Rival”…. It’s about bragging rights This is “Us” verses “Them” It’s the “Lone Star...

A Love Story

By

Ladies and Gentlemen – Much like my University’s mascot… I have the memory of an elephant and I hardly ever forget anything. As you might imagine, it’s a curse and blessing. That being said…. I remember the following quotes from some noted Sports publications and commentators back in August of this year before the college football season began. Sports Illustrated “Pete Carroll and the Trojans are even better than they were a year ago…”...
