Friday, July 7, 2017 – Snarky Friday – 7.7.17 – Seven More Saturdays Until Kick Off

Seven. Seven. Seventeen. Seven more Saturdays until we scream! WHOOP!

Why is it so hot in Texas in July? It is because it was July when God kicked the Devil out of Heaven. God gave him the choice between Texas in July or Hell. The Devil chose Hell because it is cooler than Texas in July.

But the July temperatures are not the only thing in Texas burning hotter than the hinges on the Gates of Hell. There is an office near Wellborn and George Bush Drive in College Station that also has some very hot hinges. The name on the door – Kevin Sumlin.

Yes, Indeedee do, the hottest coach’s seat in the NCAA D-1 football is right here in College Station. Three years of 5-0 starts squandered. The motivational poster in his office reads WIN NOW! I think it was placed there by the AD and the HR people from Texas A&M. Might have been John Sharp. I believe this is called “The handwriting on the wall.”

It must really be hot because the SEC Media Days paired the Texas A&M with the Alabama to take some of the heat away from Sumlin. Sabin and Sumlin – hot, but for different reasons.

Speaking of hot seats – or at least warm – we have THE University of Texas coach Tom Herman featured on the football bible of Texas – Dave Campbell’s Texas Football.

I cannot say for certain, but here’s what I’m thinking. My friends who attended and support THE University are going to want more than Coach Herman’s picture on the cover of a magazine. All of that football gibberish better transfer to the scoreboard with W’s on it every Saturday.

Don’t forget – UT You Pee! ( I have so been saving to saythat.)

Hook ‘Em Hippies!

 

Seven more Saturdays until college football kickoff. Counting the days.

Friday July 18, 2014

On my goodness. The news is filled with reports of disorderly conduct, disturbing the peace, assault, robbery, assault and battery, illegal drug use, driving while under the influence, and public intoxication. What does it all mean? Why it means college football season is just around the corner. SEC Media Day concluded this week. I do not believe Kevin Sumlin was asked what types of flowers were in the flower bed when the quarterback passed out in one last spring. I supposed things could have been worse. It could have been Auburn’s QB. I have tried very hard not to write about college football until it is closer to August. But how about just a teeny preview? The University of Oklahoma is rated between number 6 and number 9, depending on which rankings you are examining. That is certainly going to make for an ugly weekend in October in Dallas for those travelling south on I-35 from Big D. Way to go Baylor!! The rankings have you and your new stadium rated between number 9 and number 13. How does an OU/BU weekend sound? I like it. The Texas Aggies are rated between number 16 and number 24. Those rankings are very kind by the pollsters who are obviously still resting on the proverbial Johnny laurels and very scary for a team whose defense looked like a bunch of arthritic grandmothers last year and can only improve. And who knows what evil lurks under the center for this years offense? I did not see the University of Texas ranked in any of the preseason polls. Talk about a drought in Austin. But I did see where Texas was prepared to offer Nick Saben between $12 and $15 million as a signing bonus and $100 million as salary. Perhaps if you had offered President Powers such amounts to leave The University, the For Sale sign would already be in his front yard. Could be a long year for the Horns. And last, but not least. Who is picked to win the SEC? Alabama.
