Default Depressing

Now that basketball is over, coming back to the football forums and hearing crickets. I guess it's a byproduct of having closed practices and the spring game getting less coverage b/c of the bball hype. Seems like Champ wanted to keep things more subdued for the spring practices/game than in years past, which is fine with me.

I suppose our next real news will be in June when Joyner makes his choice.

Until then we'll get by on anecdotal reports of workout participation, quips from the GCC speaking tour and such. Alas, it's always darkest just before the dawn...must go through the April-August stretch in order to get to the season.

Default Re: Depressing

It is not the closed practices or the basketball drawing attention away from football. The current lack of interest is due to a simple, one word answer:

Spurt

90% of discussion of practices/Spring games was Spurt's analysis and responses to questions. We ain't got that.

Hey man im here to offer therapy. Light a candle. Heat up some coffee. Kick back....

NEXT MONTH we get the first preseason magazines on the shelves! Yep. Early or mid May we'll see Lindys and Athlon etc etc on the store shelf. Probably Bentley on the cover of most regional ones.

That my friend is the official start for me. I buy 1 every 2 weeks from May-end July. I'll spend hours reading about the 3rd team long snapper at Vanderbilt if thats what it takes. I love the narratives for every team ranging from euphoric optimism to POW like slivers of false hope. I especially love the Sporting News. They do ALL D1 teams so we get SoCon and Big South previews.

So just hang in there for April man. 4 weeks. If you can just make it to May 1st...then do like me and go by the store almost daily waiting on the magazines. I purposely dont look up the release date because i love the anticipation and it gets me through May.

Is it sad? Yes. But thats my life!

Pink tutus with the green strip. Then again, does it really matter what unis we wear if we win? Let's stay focus on baseball season (us, Fireflies, MLB, whatever) for another month or 2.

Spurt and muschamp needs to come to an agreement so he can see and report on practices his reports are better than anything the state does and I don't want to pay for info

I know y'all hate the quiet time. I miss football, too.

But, I'm totally OK with spring and summer. Not because I'm so much into baseball and basketball. I am, but the real reason is that I live up north and winter really sucks. And you spend most of the fall dreading winter. Football is the only good thing about fall up here. At least, once you get to November it's the only thing good.

Damn, I really need to move back home.
