Frog Talk / Ask-a-Frog: The Outlet Mall Game

Yep, that’s Chlamydia

Great turn out for UVA fan-wise.  Unlike a lot of our fans, I wasn’t that distressed to see some offensive miscues early on.  On the contrary, I was actually relieved to see what looks to be the rough draft of our ‘new’ offensive scheme.  New sets, more ‘wide openness’, a vertical passing attack were some very encouraging signs that a more dynamic offense could be in our future.  Granted we didn’t execute, primarily b/c of some overthrown passes (which I don’t really hold against Dalton…I mean how excited were you just as a fan to finally get frog football underway), but the receivers were running crisp routes and getting open.  O-line did a great job both giving Dalton time and opening up holes for our RB’s. 

After the early miscues we reverted back to our more traditional offense, which was able to dominate.  The fact we tried this new offense early on shows GP’s confidence in:  the new system, our defense, or being able to fall back on the tried and true O scheme if need be- maybe a little of all 3, you pick.  The fact we switched back to our more traditional O could mean GP lost confidence in the new O or perhaps he didn’t want to show future opponents any more of this new O we’re cooking up- I hope it’s the latter.  I also like the fact GP didn’t try to run up the score, and instead played our backups once the game was secure.  While I don’t like getting scored on any more than you, good programs get their younger players experience instead of running up 50 touchdowns- as evidenced by Bradford, not doing so can result with your entire program’s success hinging on some porn stache wearing backup with zero game experience.   

Unfortunately I was only able to get quotes from Disciples of GP for this wks post, FKASchultzhater has spent the entire week meditating on the 50 yard line of the AGC in preparation for the first home game and appears to be in some sort of Gameday induced trance, but rest assured he’ll be back next wk with some very ‘hot sports opinions.’  So this week….

Disciples of GP:  Our defense last week was its usual diabolical self, plotting evil and tattooing pain on the opposing offense’s collective ass.  I can’t wait to see what mayhem they have in store this week because let’s not beat around the bush, prison rape scenes in Oz are going to be less graphic than what Texas State is about to endure.  Why doesn’t SB have a “Sack Counter”?  Such counter could reach 1,000 this week.  Why hasn’t SB begun the “Hughes for Heisman” campaign?

FKASchultzhater:  [meditating….softly mumbling “Jerry Hughes…Jerry Hughes…”] 

Disciples of GP:  Let’s get on with the “Know thy Enemy” segment:  With 30,816 students, TX St. is the largest flagship in the UT System (5th largest university in TX) and admits 74% of its applicants.  Its campus is “TMU” in NBC’s FNL.  It’s the only university in Texas to produce a President- LBJ (not exactly elected, eh).  Oh yeah, and it has changed its name 5x since opening.  They want to move up to FBS by 2012 and have 2 national championships (in whatever division they were in from 1981-82) under former frog head coach Jim Wacker. 

TX St. is in San Marcos, birthplace of former BYU QB Ty Detmer (just in case you need more reasons to hate).  Their mascot is Boko the bobcat…I’m pretty sure bobcat’s are cougars in training (and by cougar I’m talking about a feline with two legs that frequents the Dallas Ritz Carlton).  The most noteworthy thing about their football team is their QB is probably older than you (27)- way to shake off those ‘Necessary Roughness’ jokes.  When does eligibility end??

Only 4 counties in Texas (Bell, Travis, Nueces, and Potter) had a higher Chlamydia rate in 2008 than Hay’s County (where San Marcos resides).  San Marcos specifically had 734 case of Chlamydia, 114 cases of Gonorrhea, and 7 cases of Syphilis.  I have to believe these statistics are inflated by the Texas State Strutters (their dance team that got x-ed by the America’s Got Talent judges in 2008 for being “boring and out of sync”- how’s that for pop culture), but is probably understated by students that go home to get tested.

And finally a question to you (the 10 people who read SB):  Which TX State grad would you most like to have a cold one with:  Heartbreak Kid Shawn Michaels, George Strait, or the guy who played Captain Harris in the Policy Academy movies?
