"Feeling so tired, can't understand it... just had a fortnight's sleep... I'm feeling so tired, Ow! so distracted... Ain't touched a thing all week... I'm feeling drunk, juiced up and sloppy... Ain't touched a drink all night... I'm feeling hungry, can't see the reason... Just ate a horse meat pie... Yeah when you call my name... I salivate like a Pavlov dog... Yeah when you lay me out... My heart is beating louder than a big bass drum, alright... Yeah, you got to mix it child... You got to fix it must be love... It's a bitch" NINE weeks until the Carnage in Columbia, gang.

SPEAKING OF COLUMBIA. No, not Colombia, although they are a goddamn delight. Sam Khan Junior delivers a piping hot take on why our first game of the year is also our most important. Lamar still carries more weight, IMO.

FIRST YELL WILL NOT HAVE DRAKE. The theme and lineup were announced for First Yell on September 5th. Ags are going to have to really get out of their comfort zone (something they cherish like a root canal) to get into a "Texas Dancehall Legends" theme featuring Max Stalling, Roger Creager, Joe Ely, and Gary P. Nunn. BTHO Lamar.

HA HA A REALLY GOOD ROOKIE DB THINKS HIGHLY OF JOHNNY. Green Bay Packers rookie and Crimson Tide All-American Ha Ha Clinton-Dix had some nice praise for one John Manziel. The NFL Rookie Symposiums are this week. Agenda items:

  • Bro-hugging a man you'll grow to loathe: a 45 minute breakout session on how to embrace Roger Goodell (in public).
  • Cocaine: only the good shit and only in the off season. Presented by: Michael Irvin.
  • No New Friends. (A tattoo artist will be on hand to ink this into your forehead).
  • Concussions: more like Narnia and unicorns than anything to fret over.
BRO CODE: QUALITY OVER QUANTITY. Recruiting savant Bud Elliott takes a look at some recruiting data and figures what percentage of a team's commits are blue chips. It's a good year for the Ags.

A PRIZE AND A CURSE. If you're one of scant few tortured souls who follow my idiocy on, you might have heard that I'd give out a prize if my follower count reached 8,000,000. Here's the kicker. I live in Colorado. If you follow me and will be passing through Denver soon, I'll buy you a spliffy of our state's cash crop. I'd mule this down to Texas for you, but my ankle monitor precludes me from doing anything but blogging. Just tweet at me when you're in town. We'll get weird.

#TBT. REK, Porter Garner, and Lyle Lovett.

Have a helluva Thursday, y'all. I love you.
