    • Link works for me. It’s a Craig’s List ad by a Georgia fan wanting a Boise State ticket.

          Here’s the text:

          What’s up? How’s your day going? Good? Bad? I support your life choices.

          I’m a UGA student looking for a ticket (preferably a student ticket, but I am also interested in others) – and it’s getting serious. Real serious. I’ve been staring down craigslist like a crackhead watching someone juggle three fat rocks. I’ve replied to posts. I’ve flooded my facebook with requests – I have to have a Boise State ticket. I mean, I just have to have one. I got shafted by the UGA ticket office and didn’t get a Boise ticket, and I have been on the trail ever since. I even have a date to the game who has a ticket – how can I be a good date if I can’t even get into the Georgia Dome? HOW?!! I HAVE TO HAVE A TICKET

          What’s in it for you? Well, money is one easy way to complete this transaction. I hear a lot of people use money for exchanges of this sort these days. See? I’m hip. I know trends. Anyway, make me an offer and we can negotiate – WARNING: I have been watching a LOT of Pawn Stars and American Pickers, so I can negotiate. But don’t be frightened by that. Please….please don’t be frightened by that. I’m not that good. I mean I’m good, but lets remember I’m the one who is desperate to see the Bulldogs take the Broncos to Pound Town, in AT-fuckingLANTA, no less. So pumped.

          Now, what if you read that last paragraph and said “Man, I would love to give this guy my ticket and receive something of value in return, but I’m just SO TIRED of all of this money I have. I wish we could barter or something. Too bad we are not in a country where bartering is the basic economic system of exchange” – well, I have two things to say to that:
          1) You should be grateful that you live in America, the greatest nation on the whole damn Earth. Be happy that you can exchange dollars with your fellow Americans for goods and services – bartering isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. Go ask the 3rd world.
          2) You’re in luck my friend!! I have prepared several possible payment options for your to consider:

          Beer – I’ll bring over an ice cold case of beer and we will bro out. We’ll bro out hard. We can smoke cigarettes, light stuff on fire, hunt big game, play shuffleboard, cook lobsters, sort industrial machine belts based on size and condition, watch 80’s movies, or literally WHATEVER you want to do. Are you a woman who is offended by the obvious appeal to men in this option so far? Well have no fear. If I bring over a 30 rack, that’s more than enough for me to get drunk enough to cry during The Notebook. Hell, I’ll bring tissues and a shoulder to cry on! : )

          Manual labor – I’ll cut your grass, paint stuff, wash your car, hell – I’ll give you a piggy-back ride (I have actually never had to spell that in my life….is that correct?) to a destination of your choice within a 10 mile radius of the starting point of your choosing. Do you see how much I want to go to that game? It’s like 100 fucking degrees outside and I will let you ride me like a pack animal somewhere. I really want this ticket.

          Catching a woodland creature – I will go into the fucking forest dressed in black and capture a wild animal for you to keep as a pet. This is the extent of my dedication. I WANT TO GO TO THIS GAME!!!! I WANT TO GO REALLY, REALLY BAD!!!!

          I had a whole bunch of ideas that ranged anywhere from much better to startlingly worse than the ideas presented above. I’m open. I’m flexible. You want me to dress like a bird and sit in your living room while you and friends play Mario Party and eat fried eggplant? We can do that. Think of an idea, spin it my way, and boom. If I agree to it, it’s done. I know this is craigslist, but no sexual favors. Unless you’re an attractive single woman of age with no mental or physical oddities that could potentially cause me lifelong regret, pain, and sorrow. But yeah. Basically, I really want these tickets. Please help me out. Let me know. Just do it. You know you want to be a good person and help me out. You can do it. I have faith. I have faith in YOU!!!! GO BULLDOGS!!!!!!! BEAT BOISE!!!!!!!!!!

      The problem is, they are always overranked even when bad. Some jackass will still rank them in the top 20, even at like 2-10 so they still get points. It is when no-one ranks you that the overrated thing comes into play.

    Finally ended my personal ban on playing the Redcoat Band CD in the car on the way into work this morning. It’s off-limits during the offseason because it’s too much like putting a steak in front of a starving man and then waving the aroma into his nostrils. But now we’re two days away, and it’s time to get pumped. I’m not going to lie. I did a few cheers along with the band at a red light. It’s time to kick the tires and light the fires, and if anyone’s not on board yet, I suggest you get the hell out of the way because this train is bound for glory.

      I’m right there with you, GD. I’ve got my Redcoat/Munson/James Brown mix CD in the car. It even has “Give Herschel Walker the ball”, plus the reprise from the next year. I wonder if we’ll be changing the words to “give IC the ball” after this Saturday night?

      I’m ready to hit somebody!

    When you look back at the Arkansas game… playback the game… watch the calls… the missed plays… CMR on the sidelines huddled with the masses…well, that one game told us what the rest of the season would be like. For me there was not any progression of the team of 2010 from there forward…maybe some players…but that gets lost in the team play and the records. When you look at some of those numbers, you have to wonder how we were that bad.

    I still think we could go 0-2 based on where we are now and where the first two opponents are. But as this season goes forward, I do not want to see an Arkansas game week after week after week two. Like to see this team get better each week in all phases, raise the bar, and hit peek in November.

    RE: A&M and scheduling. Why would anyone, much less 4 eastern division teams, agree to swap cupcake U for the Aggies next season? Especially those (2?) that would go to College Station. Slive must have team #14 up his sleeve and they are just working-out the conference buy-out problems for them.

      6-1-2 works for me. Put’em in the East with us. You can’t possibly be fearful of A&M! Mo’ SEC victories for us, mo tuneup for the SEC Championship. It’s all good.

    The best thing I’ve heard about IC is the Vision thing. Great RB’s have great vision. Knowson could see the opening and take it. I just hope McClendon hasn’t taught him how to fumble in the Red Zone like he did with CK and WE.

      Sorry for the double post, but it disappeared and didn’t show up until after I typed what I thought was a duplicative post. Came close, anyway.

      Me too, but that was over a year ago and it does connect a few dots. They have worked hard this summer. Let’s reward that work by not losing faith with them this year. Just imagine Sanford Stadium’s photo on a billboard with a walking cane leaning against it. Miracle on 34th st could become passe this year if “I believe in the Dawgs” becomes our watchword instead of our fear.
