Wakey wakey, kids. Did you get your sleep? Always get your sleep, always. You'll regret it once you're 30--or so we're told.
Big weekend, big opportunity for those elusive "style points" we're always hearing about. Oh, who are we kidding? This is Iowa; we thrive on the one-possession game. Today's gonna suuuuuck.
But enough of the ingrown negativity. Battle music? Battle music, motherfucker; this one's for the defense:
The Hit Song by DJ Format featuring Abs (via danielgenalo)
See, I got hits, hits, hits. (How many hits you got?) Lots.
This is an open thread and we are open-minded moderators. But since we've got lots of new kids on the block--welcome, each and every one of you--a couple really quick ground rules that most of us already know:
- Mind the slurs against the gays and ethnic minorities. It's the 21st century and we're all better than that, right?;
- Don't distract us with some hot babe-objects you found--that's what literallly everything else on the Internet is for;
- Be very judicious in how you criticize a player, and even coaches have families (we struggle at this too, but still);
- Swear words are totally okay as long as they don't violate Rule 1, 2, or 3. Watch this: fuck balls. Fuck balls fart crotch.
Or in essence, don't be mean, don't be stupid, and think with your brain. 80% of our commenters are really, really good at this and they've formed literally the single best college football community (I will fight people about this; yes, BHGP's old guard IS the best in college sports Internet). Take their lead. Be smart and have fun. If those two things don't come easily at the same time, um... move along, youngin.
Okay. Now that that's out of our system, let's do this. Comments go below, and we'll probably get another thread up at halftime. Go Hawks! WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!
