What?!? A new post?!? Don't have a heart attack. Just a few thoughts here.
I think the Tigers are going to have a pretty damned good year and win the West. Them or the Hogs. Bama will lose three games, at least. I'll write more on this later. But seriously, I think this could be a good year. And Bama is terribly overrated. Why do you say that Joshua? Because you don't lose just about your entire danged defense and bounce back. Especially when that defense is a Saban defense. I know this, I've seen it before. Take a look at LSU post 2003. There were some dark days in '04 for the defense in the face of a good offense.
It's old news now that A&M won't be joining the SEC. Although, at some point in the near future, they will. The Big12/10/Texas conference won't last long. If anything, this is good for the SEC. We can continue to woo the Aggies while constructing a proper, well-thought out plan to bring in Virginia Tech. I think the SEC responded well in the face of events that happened very fast and forced their hand. It's better this way. I'll accept Mizzou in lieu of VT, but only if we give every effort to bring the Hokies into the fold.
It's kinda funny to look around at the evolving blogoscape of this series of tubes. Blogs that were lone wolves have now joined networks. And those blogs used to have a link roll linking to like minded school blogs or buddy blogs from old foes. Now, you can't find one link to a blog outside of their network. It'd be funny if it wasn't so pathetic. Pathetic since not linking doesn't just erase those blogs from memory or existence. Granted a user can and probably does use bookmarks to navigate their favorite pages. But it was nice to bounce around your circle of school blogs and even hit a rival page just clicking links. Now, everyone is happy to be a lapdog to the corporate masters. Like I said, pathetic. And this isn't born of any sour feelings here. This is the first post here in months. I think you dear reader and understand we're not about revenue and prestige here.
I'll get some countdown posts going. And I have some idears I have to remember. Maybe I'll post about the crap I said I would before LAST season. Yeah. right.
Come back in a few when I get all the tumbleweeds piled up, we'll have a boon fire. Better yet, we'll shoot some fireworks into to and set it ablaze that way.
