It won't let me embed it on the blog but check it out.
I've never been too drunk to recite the alphabet, I might slur the shit out of it, but I'm pretty sure the letters would be in the correct order.

As for our bowl destination, we're all but officially going to the Texas Bowl in Houston, where we'll take on U of H (who have officially accepted an invitation). We won't be formally invited, though, until after the BCS Bowl match-ups have been announced and the Big 12 officially gets a second team into the BCS and thus vacates their spot in the Texas Bowl. That will happen, though, and the MWC Presidents will vote to allow New Mexico to play in the New Mexico Bowl a second consecutive year, which will allow the Texas Bowl to invite TCU. From reading between the lines of press reports and what Danny Morrison has said on the issue, Air Force seems like a lock to play in the Armed Forces Bowl in Fort Worth on New Year's Eve.
Obviously, this isn't the marquee bowl game we anticipated in the preseason, but it's also a lot better than last year, when we played in California mid-week against an absolute no-name team. And, let's face it, there were times this year where we thought we wouldn't be playing in any bowl game. The Texas Bowl will be Friday night, December 28th and Houston is an easy trip and our previous trips down there have been a ton of fun. No, Houston isn't a marquee team, but they're a former SWC rival and have a good offense that'll fun to watch against our D and a terrible defense that'll allow our offense to play like it did this weekend. Also, our basketball team (which is 4-0 so far) plays at Rice the afternoon after the football game.
Of course, as accurate as I believe this to be, it's still just speculation. I'm sure there's a chance that things won't shake out this way, but I'm going to plan on watching the Frogs dominate Cougar High, partying in Houston and talking trash about that crummy city no matter how much fun I have.

- Bonner - hip
- Roach - shoulder
- Richmond - knee
- Newhouse - back. But, seeing as how he seems like a really cool dude, I'll let it slide. This time.
- Brock - ankle
- Washington - shoulder. I'm pretty sure this might be because he dislocates it everytime he goes for a punt block to get those few extra centimeters. Way to take one for the team.
- Brown - knee/TCU RB curse
- Linder - RRRRRAAAAGGGGEEEEEEEEEE. But seriously, if he does have the 28 Days Later rage virus, now would be a great time to start biting all of those backups in the locker room to up their game a little bit.
- Chase Ortiz - suspended for atrocities committed in the backfield. Seriously, we all yell for Henson to eat, but Ortiz is certainly the Hannibal Lecter of this team.

After half time, Saban, realizing what would happen if they lost to Louisiana Monroe, decided to start wide receiver DJ Hall despite suspending him for the game because of a violation of team policy.
Nick "I won't coach at Alabama" Saban is turning into a bigger piece of shit season by season, week by week, day by day. I hope nothing but the worst for Alabama football.

For all of you who dont get the Threads Cowtown Update, this is a great article about sports writer Dan Jenkins and his love of TCU football. I hope everyone gets a chance to read it.
"But in campus politics, nothing defines a man like his football parking space."
Apparently some nut job has baracaded himself inside. We stood outside an watched more and more cops/SWAT members show up, along with two armored vehicles that look like they could drive through anything. The stand off is still going on, but our boss, who is like the teacher that won't let you go to the talent show, told us to get back to work and close the blinds. Diabetes doesn't take vacations. So now I am clueless as to what is going on, but will give an update when I hear what has happened.
FORT WORTH -- This X-rated movie was moving, Fort Worth police say.
Monday morning, a 24-year-old Irving man was cited after a Fort Worth police officer spotted porn playing inside the man’s car.
The officer was conducting extra patrol at a club at in the 100 block of S. Main Street, south of downtown, when he saw the car drive by, then park near the club, said Lt. Dean Sullivan, police spokesman.
According to a police report, a 10-inch screen pointed toward the rear of the vehicle showed “multiple people, naked, having sexual intercourse.”
As the driver began to drive off, the officer pulled him over. Inside the man’s car, the officer spotted an open beer.
The driver, Cameron Walker, was issued several misdemeanor citations, including for obscene display or distribution, not having a driver’s license and for the open container of alcohol.

Looks like its that time a year to go ahead and crank up the tuition fees again, luckily we got out of there when we did.
The article also mentions the demolition of the old student center in favor of a new classroom facility.

As for the game, well, it went about as expected. Defense gave them too big of a cushion early before finally shutting them down when it mattered, only the offense couldn't come up with the big play. This is perhaps because we still have the worst offensive play calling of all time. Aside from the botched Kerley reverse pass that ended up getting a short running gain, Schultz did it once again. "Hey, the QB draw worked the last play... lets run it again!!!!!" despite the fact that our line was getting absolutely dominated, which is forgivable considering most of the BYU team is older than any of the bloggers on this site and outweighed our guys by 15-20 pounds. Their line averaged something like 315 pounds. The biggest concern for me is that we still have not figured out how to run this two QB system, which I don't always agree with, but looked decent last night. However, why pull Jackson when he was clearly moving the ball well against BYU? I'm a big Dalton apologist, but the offense had that extra spark last night with Jackson in the game and they wouldn't go with it, although Dalton looked every bit as sharp running the ball, giving our offense a faint swagger that they've been lacking a good part of the season. Dalton came in and led the long drive that put us right back in it, but I still think Jackson should've had one more series. He just has to hold onto the ball (Brad and Jourdan, sorry if there's a small, oblong brown stain on your couch today because I'm pretty sure I crapped my pants when he fumbled that ball into the end zone.)
Defensively, Blake and Ortiz were getting decent pressure, and we held their fag Samoan piece of shit running back to short gains, but they were just no match for guys that were that much bigger than they were, and he still finished with two touchdowns. As has happened and even with the interception by Bonner, our pass coverage was abysmal. I think we allowed them to convert on about 17 third and longs, but they still managed to come up big at the end, aided by replay (that ball that hit the ground, bounced into the other receivers hands, and went for a big game nearly gave me a heart attack).
Despite all of this, it was really a pretty great game. I was really glad we at least had a chance to win, even though Dalton decided 4th and long would be a good time to lose his footing, but that can be attributed to the poor turf upkeep/Mormon voodoo curses. Seriously, what a bunch of creeps. The Aggies are a bunch of cultish weirdos who worship a dog, but the Mormons? I'm not even going to get into it.
So, it would appear that BYU is going to win the conference pretty soundly, but in the end, it doesn't matter. They're all going to Hell anyway.

The feeling of satisfaction after that very-'05 & '06 looking shutout could be temporary as the Frogs head to Provo to take on BYU tonight to take on the Mormans. If you don't know much about Mormonism, you should probably read up on it. On the crazy meter, they rank somewhere beyond the Baptists and not quite to the Scientologists. Offenses that warrant being EXPELLED from BYU include: premarital sex, use of alcohol or drugs, use of tobacco, owning any kind of pornagraphy and use of CAFFEINE. If we ever play the Cougars up there on a Saturday, we really need to show these folks what college football and tailgating are all about.
Speaking of, these Thursday games are just killing the Frogs. Since the start of the 2005 season, the Frogs are 24-3 on Saturdays and 1-4 on Thursdays. The only solace I can find in tonight's schedule is that, since the game doesn't start until 8:00, I can watch "30 Rock" before kickoff. "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia" will be a good visual companion for the victory party. And by party I mean a bunch of dudes sitting on my couch, fending off "please be quiet" text messages from our total cunt neighbors.
Whoa, there- reel in that bitterness and re-focus it into positive energy for the Frogs.

Yes everyone, the rumors are true. McRib is back at McDonald's for it's annual run, because processed, rib shaped meat sandwiches are only in season during the holidays. I've gotten a lot of Christmas gifts I've really enjoyed, but having the McRib pretend to go away for 10 months, only to come back in a blaze of glory right before Thanksgiving is the Christmas gift that keeps on giving.
You can have your A-1 thick and hearty burger, but for my money, McRib is the greatest seasonal sandwich on the market right now. Say what you will about me, but if it came down to baby back ribs at Chilis or, dare I say, the tragedy that is Applebees riblets, McRib would be my choice every time. Just ask Monsieur Hilliard.
Go get a McRib. Now. Just don't get use the drive thru. Did you know McDonald's charges a drive thru tax? Not only are they clogging my arteries, but now they're invading on my convenience? Blasphemy!
Not bad. Not bad at all. Considering who the other teams in our conference are slated to play in bowl games, I'll take it. MSU is the biggest fag team in the SEC as far as pulling out ridiculous wins, but at home in a bowl game, we'd take them.
Headed to Vegas this weekend. Trying to line up my college football bets. Since this has been a betting forum in the past, any suggestions?
Feeling Kansas/OSU over as a safety bet depending on what it is. Tech/Texas is 6.5 right now... pretty sure Texas will cover that, despite how they've been this year. Missouri over A&M even if the line is 50.
"I know they've got smelling salts over on the sidelines," he said. "And if somebody out there just wants to go ahead and take my head off, I've got faith in [trainer] David Gable to come out there with the smelling salts and get me off the field."
Here's a few to get your cliche juices flowing...

"Don't take any wooden nickels" (Grandma Finch)
"It's not what you deserve, it's what you negotiate" (Grandpa Finch)
"There are no stupid questions, just stupid people"
...and remember, to say "not to be too cliche" is probably the most cliched thing you could ever say...
And please don't forget that...
